Stamping on Unique Surfaces

Stamping on Unique Surfaces is my latest class at Big Picture Classes and I am so very excited about this class! I love stamping and I am always looking for ways to use my stamps on surfaces other than paper. In this class you will learn how to stamp on so many surfaces, based on my years of experiments. See the best inks to use, get tips for solid image results, and so much more!

Here is the class description from the Big Picture Classes site:

Think stamps are just for using on paper? Kimberly Crawford proves how endless the possibilities really are when it comes to finding a surface to stamp on. From wood and metal, to fabric and chalkboards, Kimberly shares tips and tricks for choosing the right kind of ink for each surface. You’ll also discover fun techniques for using your stamps to create one-of-a-kind pieces of art perfect for gifts, home d├ęcor, and more!

From wood to chalkboard, to even tile, in five lessons learn how to create some great pieces to give as gifts this holiday season, or something fun for your home! The lessons are a combination of video and photo tutorials. You can also leave messages with questions and comments, and I will be sure to answer them. One of my favorite parts of the class is the project gallery where anyone taking the class can share projects they created. Its wonderful to be inspired by others!

I look forward to seeing you in Stamping on Unique Surfaces! And don't forget, you can start your

MFT Stamps Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge

Welcome to another MFT Stamps design team challenge! These challenges are a ton of fun! Not only do I get to pull out my favorite new stamps and dies, but I get pushed to be creative in ways I never would have on my own. I love getting the creative juices flowing like this!

This challenge is all about angles and curves. Instead of my usual rectangle and square design, this challenge pushed me to try something new. The results could not please me more!

I began by grabbing Die-namics Blueprints 28. Love the angle of the panel it can create! I stayed with my fall feel of everything and used the Free Spirit paper pack. A few leaves from Bold Blooms were added. I used blue inks because it brought out the blue in the arrow patterned paper. To bring out another color in the paper, I grabbed the olive green arrow print paper and die cut it with Die-namics Thanks & Hello. I cut it several times and adhered the layers together. I use this method often to create more impact from the word. It takes on an almost chipboard-like look.

Head to the MFT Stamps Blog to be linked up to the rest of the design team. You know there will be fantastic eye candy awaiting you!
