Thursdays with Sandiebella



Welcome to Stamping Bella’s Design Team Thursday!  Today I’d like to show you a little project that helps us get more use out of our smaller stamped images.

I’m working with two stamp sets.  For my main card images I’ve used the Mail Chick set with it’s coordinating dies.

I’ve also cut a piece of red cardstock and a slightly smaller piece of vellum.


The second stamp set I’ll be using is the Mr. Postie’s Mini Envelope Accents and some Versamark ink


     I couldn’t find my regular powder tool so I just grabbed some talcum powder and used a little on the vellum to get rid of any static.  I used a paint brush to spread it all over.


     Next I stamped a couple of the images from the Mr. Postie set, the small letter and air mail airplane, randomly on the piece of vellum and then sprinkled on some white embossing powder.



     After heating the embossing powder with a heat gun my vellum panel was ready.  I then attached it to the red cardstock with a few little dots of glue here and there.  I went back later and added a couple more embossed imaged along the top edge to balance out the panel a bit better.


And here you have the finished card with a fun background created from those little accent stamps.


There are other stamps in the Stamping Bella collection that would make awesome backgrounds like the cherries in the Cherry Chick set, the cloud in the Edna Blows a Kiss set, and the Easter Eggs in the Row of Bunny Wobbles set

     Don’t let those little treasures gather dust.

    How adorable is that?! I love what you did and I have to check all of my small stamps. I don’t have any white embossing powder, at least I don’t think so but I am going to have to check. Great job! I’ll have to try some of this!
