1 Stamp - 5 Ideas

One of the things I love about stamping is that the same stamp can be used to create so many different looks.   This stamp is a dress pattern stamp by Wendy Vecchi from the set called Fashion Style and Art  (SCS 032). 

Here are pics of the stamp on 5 different projects.

Bright and cheery - I paper punched the little heart, there is a tiny button on the red dress and the little black flower is a baby prima with a little orange glitter dot in the middle on the pop dotted orange dress in the middle. 

This is a vintage look!  The dress and skirt were stamped on white tissue paper that I sprayed with tea dye reinker mixed with water in a mini mister.   The background piece was stamped with the green dots from the set before it was embossed.  After it was embossed I inked the surface with tea dye and red marker on the vertical lines and green marker on the horizontal lines.  Staples and buttons finish it off.

 Entirely different look - more of an art journaling/modern look.  Painted tag, stenciled with blue ink, stamped with the dress stamp in jet black archival and finished off with lots of ribbon and a word charm.  I like attaching them with regular safety pins - a good buy with a coupon at Joann's.

Even small stamps can almost always be used to make a  background.  The focus here is the black die cut which is decked out in hounds-tooth paper and gems.  Red, black and white is a classic combination that you can't go wrong with!

Sweet, country Birthday card.  The dress was stamped on printed paper before being cut out; all the papers are Basic Grey.  The paper was from a 6x6 pad which gives you the right scale for this size stamp!
