Local King Rubber Stamp's Jelly Giggly Stamp

Local King Rubber Stamp's Jelly Giggly Stamp

I really love watching the crew on Stamp Wars, where 5 stamp-fabulous people compete to make the most amazing card using the same stamp set. A few weeks ago, they hosted a "Craft with Me" event where we were invited to craft with them. For this event, they picked out a wonderful stamp set from Local King Rubber Stamp. While I had not purchased the stamp set at that time, the owner of Local King Rubber Stamp provided a very generous discount code and since I was so impressed with the stamp sets, I had to go shopping. 

Today I wanted to share a few of the cards that I made with the Jelly Giggly stamp set. It is a great red rubber stamp that could provide a background or fill almost a whole A2 card base and be the focus of the card. I made three cards, each of which were fun and easy to make, and I think rather stunning. I look forward to playing with this stamp set a little more in the few days-look out for more cards in the future!

Basically all three cards were made in a similar way: I placed a piece of watercolor paper and the stamp in my Misti and then stamped the image. Once the image was stamped to my liking (for two of the cards I had to stamp a few times to get my desired look), I cut out the paper using a die cut and then popped the whole thing up using some foam tape. I then put the panel on a colored card base, used foam tape to adhere a sentiment from my stash (all of them came from the Simon Says Stamps Just Because Word Mix 2 stamp and die set) that I had left over from other projects. I then added some sequins from a few different Catherine Pooler sequin mixes). I will share specific details about each card below.

Card #1:  I used VersaFine Claire ink in Purple Delight that I picked up at Collage (my local craft store in Portland). I then heat embossed the whole thing with some Holographic embossing power from Ranger (also from Collage). I used the Deckle Edge A2 die cut from Honey Bee Stamps to cut out the image. The die cut was a  little larger around some of the edges, so I ran the VersaFine Claire around the edges and then repeated this with some Delicata Ink in Celestial Copper. I added more embossing powder and then heat set the powder again.

Card #2:This card is exactly the same as card #1, except that I used ColorBox Ink in Peony instead of the VersaFine Claire. Because this ink is lighter (and my ink pad is not as juicy), I had to stamp the jelly fish multiple times. The Celestial Copper also stands out much more than in the first card.

Card #3: I applied some markers directly to the stamp, including Distress Markers in Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean and a Purple Zig Fudebiyori that I recently picked up at Collage. I sprayed some water onto the stamp and then stamped onto the watercolor paper. I decided to add more Chipped Sapphire and Salty Ocean and then stamped a second time. After the image dried, I added this to a blue card base.
