OCC Stretch your stamps 2 - Graphic stamps.

Hello to everyone and thanks for stopping by. Today is the day 8 at the Stretch your stamps 2 OCC. Today we were to play with graphic stamps. This topic was quite hard since I really not own any that kind of stamps that they used in the class. Well I went to my stash and chose the ones that resembled nearest being graphic-style stamps. The first one was inspired by Kristina Werner's card: repeated stamping with ombre colours. I think it came out nicely but this style of card is not my favourite. 

The second card for today was inspired by Taheerah Atchia's watercolour stamping. I tried it out but it didn't work as wanted so I stamped another colour on top. I thought, it was my stamp to blame and I tried it again but the result was the same. I still really like to look of a welcome baby card. One of my favourite. 

The last one for today was inspired by Kelly Rasmussen's idea of creating a border with stamps. My sister likes this kind of stuff and I really like how it turned to be and how it yells my sister to have it on her birthday.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!


  1. Hey there! I just thought I would pop on and say I totally love the two cards you created using the watercolour stamping technique! The stamps you chose for them are so perfect and the colours are delightful! Thanks so much for giving them a try, I think they're awesome! :-)

    1. Thank you Taheerah! Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I think your card was so wonderful and I wanted to try the technique. I think, I still put too much water for the ink mix that is the stamped image was not recognisable after stamping. I'm sure, I will try the technique later on again! :-)

  2. Kesäkuuta odotellessa. ;) Muistin vasta tällä viikolla tulla katsomaan ja aivan upeita kortteja oot tehny. Ja hei, huomasin, että olit kokeillu sitä joululeimasinta. Ihailin sitä itse jo viime vuonna ja tulin siihen lopputulokseen, että se on liian vaikea mulle. Ostinkin sen sitten sulle. Joulukuuta myös odotellessa. Onhan teillä tämä meidän turun osoite? ;)
