Today over on Stampin’ Stylin’ Inkspiration, we are playing with the Undefined hand carved stamp kit that Stampin’ Up! released during the 2013 convention. It is always fun to see what other people create because I know… it sounds super hard or tedious. But it’s easier than you think!
Check out what I created as my first stamp while at Convention:
And with that I created this card:
Yay! I love it!
I kept my card simple today by just using different 2012-2014 In-Colors and stamped solid image flowers on the white background paper. That seemed a little bright so I covered it with Vellum to soften the look. Then I added some rhinestones to the corners to cover where I used glue dots to hold down the vellum.
Then for the sentiment, I grabbed my Four Frames stamp set and Petite Pairs sentiments and created the central image. Add an accent of the same hand carved flower that I colored in with markers and POP! some fun color and images that I can call MY OWN.
If you are curious what comes in the Undefined kit, check out everything you get:
- Sample stencil images
- 4 wood blocks
- Enough raw rubber for all 4 blocks
- Enough foam adhesive for all 4 blocks
- 2 carving tools (skinny and wide)
- Island Indigo marker
- 3 postcards
All for only $19.95! Your own personal stamp set with tools to make more for $20.
Anyway, I thought it was a ton of fun and can’t wait to make more. And to help folks see how much fun it is, I’m holding a class where you can make your own personal stamp – a try before you buy idea – using my tools and your ideas. Check it out in October if you’d like to join me.
So, give it a try. Or think about it, and for now, just try out the fun ideas I used on this card today.
