I am very excited to be able to share another JustRite Stampers Reveal with you today! Today's Reveal is the NEW Wood Stamper 1-3/16'' with Bonus 60 pt. Font Set & 3 Damask Borders. Some of you might be thinking doesn't JustRite Stampers already have a Damask Borders set and the answer is yes, but now there is a small and large set. How terrific is that! I love this NEW little set! Here is a picture to show you the difference in size. For today's project I am going to be using both the NEW Wood Stamper 1-3/16'' with Bonus 60 pt. Font Set & 3 Damask Borders and Damask Borders Monogram Stamper Kit 1-5/8'' Harmony Classic Circle Stamper I. Here is a set of Monogram note cards that I made for a friend. I was very happy with how these cards turned out and they are quick and easy to make with limited supplies. Each card started out as a white base and as you will be able to see in the pictures two of the cards are stamped and embossed and the other two have been stamped and then I used diecuts to do the layering. Three of the cards have the monogram stamped directly on the card front in the center. Here is a picture showing you how to do this and be able to line up the stamp with the die template. For the picture I have the stamp facing up and you can see how you would line up the stamp. To start use a removable adhesive to tape down your die template. The die template I am using is the NEW Fleur de Lis Pendant S4-204 from Spellbinders. Ink up you stamp and then center it over the opening in the die template and look down towards the bottom of your stamp to line up the points of the stamp with the die template. You might want to practice this on some scrap paper to make sure you are lining it up right before doing this directly on your card front. Now for those of you that might be thinking there is no way I can line that up--no worries--there is always a solution. *wink* If you don't want to try and line up the stamp then just stamp your image on to some cardstock of your choice, line up the die template, emboss and then cut your cardstock to fit the card front and follow the next few steps. **The next step is for embossing only**, After I had the stamping done then I ran the cardstock through the Wizard with the tan embossing mat. By doing this you will emboss all of the beautiful detail into the card front.
For doing this note card set I only used white cardstock. After I had the stamping done I inked the paper with pink and black inks. To do this I use a cotton ball, ink it up and then in a circular motion remove some of the ink on a piece of scrap paper until you get the desired color strength and then continue to work in a circular motion adding the ink to your card stock. My sweet friend Linda Duke gave me this fantastic tip about using the cotton balls. I really like the look from the cotton balls, it's a much smoother and softer look.
Here's a few close-up pictures of the Monogram Cards.
For both of these cards I used the NEW Wood Stamper 1-3/16'' with Bonus 60 pt. Font Set & 3 Damask Borders. Adding the ink really makes the embossing pop. The card on the right is the only one that wasn't stamped directly on to the card front.
Here is the second set, both of these were stamped on the card front using the Damask Borders Monogram Stamper Kit 1-5/8'' Harmony Classic Circle Stamper I. On the cards with the diecuts I also used foam tape to give the cards some dimension. For a finishing touch I also added some bling to each of the cards.
