Stamped calico flower card
I love the new texture stamps that Kaisercraft have released. I see them cropping up on alot of my projects in the future (in fact I have used them a fair bit already!).
I have used them 3 ways on this project. I have stamped onto a strip of calico using the script stamp, which I have then made into a flower. I have used the flourish stamp to add texture to hand cut leaves. I inked a wooden frame in black and once dry stamped the grid stamp over the top using sandstone ink.
The texture stamps are a great way to add that special “something” to your next project.
Project by Kerryn Lawson:Texture Stamps – Script (CS752), Grid (CS755) & Flourish (CS759), Lush Paper Collection – 6″ paper pad (PP825), Embellishment Pack (EM919), Ink – Jade (IP717), Black (IP707) & Sandstone (IP710), Pearls – Teal (SB783), Wood Flourishes – Frames (FL305), Rubons – Birthday Cards (RB811).
Other products used – Calico, Bazzill cardstock.
To create the patchwork background, I initially stamped the clear stamps randomly using different colours of ink pads, inspired by the Lush Collection, on a 12×12 sheet of plain patterned paper. Then I cut them into 2″x2″ squares and inked the edges.

Stamped border on layout:
To highlight the texture stamps I chose a rather neutral patterned paper from Up, Up & Away. First I painted along the sides of the paper with Kaiser paint in the same paper I have as background ( a terracotta paper from the Lush collection) and also stamped with the flourish stamp. Then I used the grid stamp to make a vertical strip along the paper. And then I marked with a pencil where I wanted my photo. I used the bubblewrap stamp to created a kind of a photo mat. To bring some colour, I chose to stamp in blue with the music sheet stamp horizontally. Using the stamps and some paint I have created my own patterned paper.

Monochromatic stamped background – layout
I started with the Grunge stamp and used it on the entire paper with a soft pink ink that is slightly lighter then the Rose ink pad. I stamped a square with the Flourish stamp and the Rose ink pad where I planned to place my photos. After this I used the Pose ink pad on the Script stamp but I didn´t ink the entire stamp, just parts of it. Finally I did the same thing with the Sheet music clear stamp.
After this I used my sewing machine and sewed around the square of Flourish pattern, around the paper and finished it up with straight zigzag seams on the rest of the layout.
I inked the wooden wines with the Rose ink pad slightly al over the surface and used the script stamp on them for the pattern. As I found the vine I wanted to use a bit too long I cut it into three pieces.

Creating a frame using texture stamps
1. Cut out a 6” x 6” square template from the middle of a scrap piece of paper. Use the “frame” of the scrap paper and place over the top of your layout base (Lotus – reverse, p533) to create a mask.
2. Load a sponge dabber with paint (deep yellow) and apply to the texture stamp (bubble wrap).
3. Stamp the image directly onto your layout background paper, in the opening created by the mask. Allow to dry.
4. Outline the stamped image in black pen. Next, you need to adhere your photos across the centre of the bubble wrap stamp.
5. Stamp a journal block (journal – cs758) onto co-ordinating patterned paper (6” paper pad). Cut out and ink all edges in black (ip707). Adhere the journal block to the bottom right of photo row. Using the same patterned paper, cut a small strip and tear along its length. Stamp the strip with the journal block stamp. Add it to the top left of your layout. Also add some black rhinestones and faux stitching to the small strip.
6. Use the “script” clear stamp (cs752) and stamp directly onto your page, overlapping photos, stamped background and edge of journal block.
7. Add your title and some pearls on top of the “script” stamped image. Don’t forget to journal!
8. Finally, use one of the printed chipboard buttons (cb110) from the embellishment pack, stamp with the journal clear stamp to give it some depth and texture, and then add it to your layout below your title.

Creating a watermark effect on your projects using clear stamps
Layout by Trudi Harrison: CS755 Clear Stamp – Grid; CS759 Clear Stamp – Flourish; Kaisercraft Up, Up and Away Collection Patterned Papers P540 ‘Carousel’ (both sides), P542 ‘Sideshow’ (Reverse), P543 ‘Rollercoaster’, ; Up, Up and Away PP826 6″ Paper Pad; Up, Up and Away EM920 Printed Chipboard; Up, Up and Away RB870 Rubons (colour); A225 Alpha Stickers ‘Brown’; SB222 ‘Believe’ rhinestone title; CB101 lowercase chipboard letters; IP710 Sandstone Ink; Glue Dots; Foam Tape. Other: Red Ink; Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad; clear embossing powder; heat gun; scallop border punch.
To create a water mark effect; stamp the image with Versamark on its own – as seen in the following photo (insert detail photo 2) I have used the ‘Grid’ clear stamp with Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad and stamped a grid background on the Carousel patterned paper. The result is very subtle.
The Grid stamp has also been used to alter the chipboard letters. The letters were inked red and then stamped with the Grid stamp using sandstone ink. Versamark was then applied to the letters with Clear embossing over the top. A heat gun was then used to set the embossing powder, with another couple of coats applied afterwards to create the glossy finish.
The swirls of the Flourish clear stamp I thought were perfect for creating clouds. The flourish stamp has been used to alter the reverse side of the Carousel patterned paper. I stamped the image repeatedly with Sandstone ink and then cut my clouds from a template that I made.
In my layout I have stamped the Bubble Wrap clear stamp (CS753) with Hot Pink ink (IP713) directly onto the cardstock. I have then used a piece of acetate that I punch a circle in, as a mask / template and used the Flourish clear stamp (CS759) and Jade ink (IP717) to stamp circles onto the cardstock. I have used the Oriental clear stamp (CS754) to stamp on the flowers. The little hearts are a flower cut into pieces. I have also used the Grid clear stamp (CS755) to stamp on the Sea Breeze (AS220) and Hot Pink (AS216) Alpha Stickers.
Delicate backgrounds using texture stamps
When stamping with the rectangle “script” stamp onto a Layout, you will get a better look by wiping the outer edges of the stamp with a cloth to remove some of the ink. That way the ink “fades out” on the page to give a more natural appearance.
