I am such a big fan of the Stampotique stamps. These are some of my projects, usually done for the Stampotique Designer’s Blog challenges. It’s been a while since I have made the time to join in there, but I am ever hopeful I can get back to it soon!
Note: Now I have! Not every week as it debuts on Wednesdays and I am too fond of What’s on your Workdesk Wednesday (or WOYWW) to bypass that for the challenge. I seem to do best when I see it, get the idea immediately, and make the thing. So it’s pretty hit or miss, but I am adding my newer things here.
I’ve included links to all the appropriate posts (most with at least a little bit of info on how I made them) and if you want to watch the little 4 minute YouTube slide show for the projects, you can do that here. Warning – the music isn’t scaled back, so make sure your volume on your monitor isn’t all the way up, unless you really LIKE Bauhaus….
The post is here. More photos, a link to the inkblot font, and close-ups of the tags can be found in the posts here and here. The post about what prompted me to make this project, and the how-to for making the shimmer-mist grid background is here.
After a bit of a gap I did this one – using the stamping on tee-shirt transfer paper – then ironed it on the a tee.
This is the first and only thing I ever made for the challenge that DOESN’T use a Stampotique stamp, but because it was for the challenge, I’ll add it here.
An easel card with Distress stain splotches
A little free-standing table decoration (maybe even for Thanksgiving) using the spooky tree stamped on fabric and with a binder-clip stand.
Not sure if this belongs in Christmas or here, but this is a hanging decoration I made, with a spinner for NAUGHTY or NICE. Just a quick bit of fun.
This card is one of my “hidden waterfall” cards and I just love the quote.
This card uses something like the Joy-fold with three of the Stampotique guys, details in the post here.
A little milk carton from a template. Based on the Midwich Cuckoos, you can see close-ups, links to the template, and that cute cow-dingbat in the post here.
A triangle box, that opens to reveal a 3-D surprise. You can see that here, as well a links to the stamps used, and the the box template, with details on how I altered it, a bit.
A piece of Wall Art, constructed from cardstock trays, with details on the dimensions in the post here. This post has the details on making your own trays, with step-by-step photos. Another post with info on my inspiration for the project.
This post has quite a lot of info – including many more photos, dimensions and info on how I constructed the box and card front.
A set of nested boxes. The majority of the basic info can be found here, including shots of the inside boxes. Close and detail shots of the boxes are here, and a tutorial on making the boxes can be found here. You can download a PDF of instructions, if you prefer that, here!
A card for one of the challenges – it opens to reveal a very bad pun. See inside here, and there is a link to the stamp I altered to create the missile, and the toad. There, now I’ve given it away!
A mini book, with the line from A Princess Bride. Info about the inspiration here, a little bit about the mica-dusted photo happy accident and some inside pages here, and a look at the fold-out action here.
A card – not much extra info, but a variation in the post here.
Caged girl – not much info but the post is here
A birthday card – I love the sentiment and the pop-up inside. See that here, with a link to the video on shaped cards and mini-book pages using Nestabilites, and the font info.
A post here with the prep and domino matrix, and a couple of close-ups.
If you clicked on the link above you will have seen this Halloween Card there as well!
Lots more to see here, for my Stampotique Jacob’s Ladder. Info on how I made it can be found in the post here, plus lots more photos. This uses “invisible strapping” so the images are not obscured by the mechanism.
A definite favourite, my girlie-girl, inside a paper rose. One of my first uses of the head-substitution on the Stampotique stamp images.
Two for one, here. More shots of the Anniversary card for DH, with the inner pages around a skewer mechanism that rotates to reveal each new page. Lots of photos. AND a triptych card, built from massive playing cards, and teeny tiny ones.
No real additional info but you can read the post here
The original post with card, and the real Stampotique challenge item. Funny post about my sister and her challenge to me to make a cute card. Another card there, plus a link to the YouTube video for a dotty background that I quite like.
Finally, a trio of cards. Glittery Bat Boy, with lots of bling, An “angel” (using Safmat and a Graphics Fairy image to make patterned paper wings) and Wings of Love (using LetraTac and Pearl-ex for a shimmery effect on acetate.
