Ink It! Stamp It! - Technique

Hello everyone 😊

Welcome to another Ink It Stamp It blog hop. You are currently here with me Kim Oliver- KOCreations Cards. I have a list of the other talented blog hop participants closer to the end of this post.

Today we are focusing our energies on techniques.

Techniques are what all paper crafters use to creat their gorgeous projects with.
My technique today is repeat stamping.
 Repeat stamping can be as simple as stamping an image in the same colour as your card stock to give a textured look or as complex as creating your own Designer Series Paper (DSP).

I have chosen to create my own DSP to aid my creating of a card and gift box set. I have a video further down on this post of the basic box directions from Pootles (Sam) This is where I got the directions from.

Wishing You A Lovely Day

The next 3 photo's show the steps I used to create my own DSP for the milk carton lid.

The stamp set I used is called Lovely Wishes and is a two step stamp set.
This stamp set is retiring very soon! You can purchase your set by clicking


The colour I used are Basic Black (retiring), Berry Burst and Garden Green

Step 1

Stamp the images in your desired pattern.
If you aren't confident doing this the Stamparatus is a wonderful tool to aid positioning of your stamps and paper.
For me I just stamped my first image one way, turned my stamp around and stamped it as close to the first image as possible then repeated.

Step 2

This step is part two of the two step stamp being put into use. 
Using Garden green I stamped the colours in the leaves.
I deliberately made sure that the colour could be seen by stamping twice, once int he image and again periodically outside the image.

Step 3

For the last and final step (which is stall part 2 of the two step stamp set) I added the Berry Burst colour to the flower heads.
