Lost & Found Two: Repetition Stamping

April 10th, 2012

Do you ever fall in love with a single stamp and want to use it everywhere? The starburst image from My Mind’s Eye’s Lost & Found Two Sunshine “Lovely” stamps by Jen Allyson had me at hello. All the images in this set are so unique and beautiful, but that starburst image is spectacular. I’m going to show you a quick way to use a single stamp to make a big impact on a card. I call it Repetition Stamping.

Start by stamping your favorite image onto a piece of scrap paper and measure both the width and height. This particular image was simple since it is a circle. Then, onto your cardstock, measure out in a grid format the dimensions of the stamp across the entire cardstock (make sure you have a light hand with your pencil!)

Now you can stamp! Lining up your stamp is a breeze because you’ve done all the measuring and have guidelines. Allow your ink to dry thoroughly and then erase your guidelines.

Finish your creation with a few fun embellishments. For mine, I inked the edges of the cardstock and added a wooden button from the Lost & Found Two: Sunshine Memories Collection and a sentiment tag.

I hope you try out Repetition Stamping! I feature it quite often on my blog, The Bald Dragonfly! Stop on over sometime.

    Great tip Karen, the grid sure takes out the guesswork of working out the pattern :0)
