Stamp School: Photo Paper Ideas!

Hi friends! The other day I was testing out some new rubber stamps from ArtNeko and I like to use photo paper to test my stamps on because I have a lot of the smaller size paper leftover because my printer will no longer take it and also because it gives a really crisp impression. I liked the image so much that I decided to experiment and came up with these:

Watch the video to see how to do this technique!

Today I am using stamps from our sponsor ArtNeko!   *Save 10% off your next order of any size or get free shipping on orders over $50 (whichever discount is greater you get!) just by mentioning thefrugalcrafter!

Patterned paper
Dye ink
Fish rubber stamps (Art Neko)
Building stamp (ArtNeko-used with rainbow ink pad)
glue and double sided tape
Waterbased Markers in light colors

1. Stamp image in brown dye ink on white photo paper.
2. Color with watercolor markers.
3. Adhere pattern papers to folded cardstock, than attach focal image.
4. Embellish with fibers and buttons.
5. Make envelope as shown in video.

Photo paper CAN be used for stamping, unlike glossy cardstock which dries slow photo paper dries instantly making it great for dye based markers and detailed stamps! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  7. Great way to use supplies. It gave me an idea I’ve been trying to make sunset backgrounds with blue mauve n yellow I think I’ll try this with a multi color pad. Maybe pulling the pads off n mounting together. Will let u know my success. Thanks Lindsay.
