Saturday Scrapbook Stamping: Adding Stamping in Through Layering

Welcome back for another edition of Saturday Scrapbook Stamping. Last week I took the week off for my "Forgeries on the Fourth" post, but I am back to stamping on my scrapbook pages today. One of my favorite ways to use stamps on a scrapbook page is to use them as a layering piece. For this page, I am using my April Fantastic & Fabulous kit, and the background sheet that I made with my homemade texture paste last week. I started with a sketch from My Scraps and More (they are having a fun sketch-a-thon this month!):

There was an additional challenge to "add mist, paint, spray, or ink to your page". So, it was perfect for stamping and using my page with the homemade texture paste! I started my page by layering some strips of paper on the background. I chose a stamp from my kit that was versatile, funky enough for my bright paper choices, but a simple enough shape to use a couple of times. I pulled out my much loved black Staz-On, and stamped right over the paper strips:

 I stamped on opposing sides of the page, using the stamp in place of the circle element of the page:
And then, just started adding in other decorative bits like washi tape and a journaling card in place of the frame:
I finished it all off with a sprinkling of other small embellishments from my kit, like the vellum punched hearts, Sparklers in the center of the stamped flowers to help them stand out, and a tiny bit of sequins and bling in my clusters:


So, there you have it. I think the bright colors and scribbly stamped flowers suit my child of the eighties layout very well! Be sure to come back next week for more Scrapbook Stamping on Saturday!

  2. Great layout! I really like the colorful paper strips and how you added the black washi tape, stamp and frame - the black really seems to make the other colors pop.
