The Stamp It! 3 Ways section has always been one of my favorite parts of the Stamp It! Cards issues, so of course I was super-duper excited when we got the word that there would be an entire issue devoted to the concept! Who doesn’t like getting tons of great ideas for getting the most out of your stamps?
As I was flipping through the pages of the Stamp It! 3 Ways issue, I was blown away by some of the creative ideas…and amazed at how one stamp set could look so different when placed in the hands of talented stampers who put their own unique spin on it!
And that’s the beauty of stamping, isn’t it friends? By using different colors, techniques and compositions, the creative possibilities of a single stamp set are unlimited!
The project I created for this issue was a framed piece with a definite masculine, vintage flair. At first glance, this set definitely gives that sort of vibe!
But what happens when you brighten up the color scheme and add a bit of whimsy? It takes on a decidedly different feel!
I was excited to pull out this set again for today’s project. This time I stamped the airplane image from the set using Versamark, then embossed with some colorful embossing powders. The subtly inked cloud background along with the dotted trail and colorful letter stickers, give it a whimsical feel that is perfect for a young boy’s birthday! Definitely a different look than my original project!
What other uses can you dream up for this stamp set? Would you go the vintage and masculine direction, or do you prefer the colorful, whimsical version? I’d love to hear your ideas! Leave me a comment and I’ll choose three lucky winner sto take home the All Aboard stamp set along with a copy of the new Stamp it 3 Ways issue!
