I think that the sketched lines of the Blessed Easter stamp set in the Occasions Mini Catalogue makes it a versatile set although at first glance people may think that it is only useful for Easter cards. . .
I have challenged myself to use the set in a few different ways and this post is dedicated to two very simple approaches.
Ever wanted to know an additional use for Stampin' Write Markers? They are terrific for inking up and stamping with stamps. The beauty of this method of inking is that you can use different colours for different areas of the stamp. Obviously with a floral stamp it is possible to ink up different flowers and leaves in different colours.
Another advantage is that you need only ink up the areas that you want to stamp - for example you can leave off the greeting on a stamp set that would otherwise only apply to one situation.
Always remember to huff on your stamp before applying it to the cardstock to make sure that you get an even cover (some parts of the inked stamp may dry whilst you are inking up other areas).
This is an example of what I am talking about:
I inked up this stamp with Island Indigo and Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write markers. The greeting is from So Very Grateful and stamped in Island Indigo.
Next project is a slightly different colour scheme but identical approach:
I added the piece of ribbon from my scraps and thought that the staple was an added touch of texture.
This stamped image would also be terrific for sympathy, get well and thinking of you cards - a versatile set and well priced when you think of it in different terms!
