World Card Making Day – 2:00 pm – 1 stamp 3 ways!

Kimberly Crawford 1 stamp 3 ways all cards

Hello! Kimberly Crawford here and I am thrilled to be celebrating World Card Making Day with you! One of my favorite card-making tools are stamps! They are so versatile. By using a few different techniques, one stamp can create unique looks. Today I am going to share with you three techniques using one background stamp!

Coloring with Marker:

To create the soft background on this card, I began by coloring directly onto my stamped image with Distress Markers. I started with the leaves, first coloring with the lighter green, then adding darker green, directly over the top. Using the side of the marker brush tip helps color the surface of the stamp quickly. The flowers were colored with two tones as well, starting again with the lighter tone.

Once the image was entirely covered with color, a small amount of water was spritzed on the surface of the stamp. Hold the mist bottle farther away from the stamp for a crisper image, and bring it close for a more watered-down appearance.

Supplies: Stamp-Carta Bella (Victorian Floral Stamp), MFT Stamps cardstock (Poppy Red, Orange Zest, Vellum), MFT Stamps Die-namics (Thanks & Hello), Pretty Pink Posh Sequins (Clear 4mm), Distress Markers (Ripe Persimmon, Candied Apple, Moved Lawn, Twisted Citron), Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L (EZ Runner Permanent, EZ Runner Permanent Dots)

Stamping and Foiling:

For this card, the stamp was covered in Reactive Paint, a paint formulated to be used with foil. It was applied with a foam brush until the stamp was evenly covered. Then the image was stamped onto a piece of card stock. Foil was applied to the surface, color side up.

Then the foil and cardstock were placed inside a plastic carrier sheet and passed through a foiling machine. Once complete, the foil was removed and the gorgeous, shiny image was left behind!

Supplies: Stamp-Carta Bella (Victorian Floral Stamp), Echo Park Patterned Paper (I Love Family 6×6 pad), MFT Stamps cardstock (Kraft, Chocolate Brown, Brushed Gold, Vellum), MFT Stamps Die-namics (Thanks & Hello), Pretty Pink Posh Sequins (Gold 4mm), Paint (Heidi Swapp Minc Reactive Paint, Foil (Heidi Swapp Minc Gold), Foiling Machine (Heidi Swapp Minc Mini), Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L (EZ Runner Permanent, EZ Runner Permanent Dots)

After stamping the image in grey ink, the open spots in the image were colored in with colored pencil. The unique color for the leaves was the perfect color for the card base.

Bonus idea: On the card base for this card, the same background image was stamped, using watermark ink, bringing out a subtle and coordinating pattern.

Supplies: Stamp-Carta Bella (Victorian Floral Stamp, MFT Stamps cardstock (Lush Lagoon, Tangy Orange, Vellum), MFT Stamps Die-namics (Thanks & Hello), Pretty Pink Posh Sequins (Clear 4mm), Prismacolor pencils, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L (EZ Runner Permanent, EZ Runner Permanent Dots)

Have fun creating unique looks with the same stamp today! Happy World Card Making Day!" ~ Kim Crawford

  123. Charmaine October 2, 2016 at 10:52 pm

    I think the North Pole set is so cute, I would love to win that! Thanks for the inspiration of using the same stamp set in different ways,

  124. Heaney October 2, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    New technique that I haven’t got the courage to try. I have the distress markers and been idling inside drawer for more than a year. Will try this colouring on stamp technique. Thank you for sharing such great idea!

  125. Karen N October 2, 2016 at 11:51 pm

    Love the ideas to use the same stamp and make different looking cards. Thank you for the chance to win

  126. ionabunny October 3, 2016 at 7:19 am

    Oooh, love the foiled one. Lovely cards. Hugz

  127. Lisa K October 3, 2016 at 8:19 am

    Great ideas! If I had to select a favorite, it would be A Child is Born. Such a great nativity set.

  128. Barbi Lewis October 3, 2016 at 9:13 am

    Thanks for sharing the great inspiration and giveaway! Awesome ideas for the foil technique so sparkly!

  129. Dianne October 3, 2016 at 9:16 am

    Woodland wishes is my favourite set. Fingers crossed.

  130. Kelly A. Crowl October 3, 2016 at 10:14 am

    Wow…so cool to show the versatility!

  131. D.Ann C October 3, 2016 at 10:46 am

    It’s so cool to see three ways to use the same stamp! I LOVE the foiled version!!
    My first CTMH choice would be Nature’s wish, but if it has to be from the holiday book, then it’d be Thoughtful Flowers. Thanks for the chance!

  132. Amber Rasmussen October 3, 2016 at 11:05 am

    So fun! Love the gold foiled card! Thanks for the chance to win!

  133. Terri Burson October 3, 2016 at 11:17 am

    I’m soooo in love with the Season of Magic but I didn’t see a wreath die to go with the stamp. I’m guessing there’s a Cricut cartridge for that? I do own a Cricut Explore so I might have to look into that. My 2nd favorites is Woodland Wishes with the dies. I can use that for scrapbooking AND cardmaking. Thanks so much CTMH for sponsoring!

  134. Kelly Massman October 3, 2016 at 11:55 am

    i love them all! I already have cozy christmas and woodland wishes. not sure what i would choose next…

  135. Darla Weber October 3, 2016 at 1:04 pm

    It has been a while since I shopped with CTMH…I will be checking out the catalog soon!

  136. jengd October 3, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    Lovely card! There’s some cute stuff in the catty but I’d say my favorite is the “Joy to You and Me” set.

  137. Karen Lingel October 3, 2016 at 2:39 pm

    Beautiful cards. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  138. shartl October 3, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    That gold foil detail is so beautiful! I do love the Woodland Wishes and the Woodland Critters sets the most. Thanks for the chance to win!

  139. Laurie Black October 3, 2016 at 8:25 pm

    So much variety from the same stamp, thanks for sharing these techniques!

  140. Jane Z. October 3, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    All three cards are beautiful and I enjoy seem all the different ways to use this stamp set! Amazing! CTMH does have lots of great products and I have always been happy with my stash. Thanks for being a generous sponsor and Happy World Card Making Day to all! 🙂

  141. TracyM #6773 October 4, 2016 at 7:50 am

    THREE x DELIGHTFUL!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing these techniques … I really NEED to try my hand at foiling and the reactive paint sounds SO COOL 🙂

  142. Maryam crafter October 4, 2016 at 9:18 am

    Very lovely colouring and stamps. My best wishes for the winner.

  143. Cori G October 4, 2016 at 4:54 pm

    So fun to see the same stamp used different ways! Thanks!

  144. Marianne October 4, 2016 at 5:15 pm

    Love Kimberly’s cards using the same stamps. Love the quirky look of the Woodland Wishes stamps and dies from the CTMH Idea Book.

  145. {vicki} in ga October 4, 2016 at 6:07 pm

    the one colored with pencils is my fave

  146. Shari October 4, 2016 at 6:31 pm

    Loving the Jeepers Creepers paper/embellishments and Woodland Critters stamp set in the new CTMH catalog! Thanks for the great inspiration!!

  147. Karen MacNutt October 4, 2016 at 7:11 pm

    Wow, I love seeing different ways to use the same stamps – absolutely gorgeous! My favorite is the foiling! I’ve got to try this!
    Thank you for sharing the CTMH catalog – this is the first opportunity I’ve had to check it out and, OMGoodness, I fell in love with the Woodland Critters stamp set right away! Perfect for my fall cards! Must have!!!! And my other favourite is the Winter thin cuts die – I can see myself using this on all of my winter projects! Super excited about this giveaway!

  148. Waco Bayless October 4, 2016 at 9:18 pm

    Beautiful cards! I’m in awe of your talent!

  149. Jeanie L October 4, 2016 at 10:00 pm

    Wow, the idea book is chock full of ideas indeed. If I have to pick a favourite, it would be The North Pole because the elves, and Mr and Mrs Claus are just so cute!

  150. Shannon October 5, 2016 at 8:49 am

    Kim, I love the 3 in 1 card collection you made along with the detailed instructions. That Minc is so versatile – I may just need to get one – maybe put it on my ‘christmas wish list’!
    I love everything in the Close to My Heart catalogue but the OH DEER collection jumped out at me!! It is so great to see how they use their products for LO’s and cards too!! Thanks for the chance to win.

  151. Lucinde | Lucilight October 5, 2016 at 9:55 am

    Great ideas!!

  152. Greta H October 5, 2016 at 11:31 am

    I’m totally in love with all 3 cards! I bought Flitterglu so I could foil stamped images without a foiling machine & have only done it once. Now I’m inspired to make more!

  153. karenladd October 5, 2016 at 5:38 pm

    I don’t have many CTMH stamps so everything in the holiday catalogue looks wonderful but the Woodland wishes set is probably my favorite!

  154. stampnk October 5, 2016 at 10:56 pm

    I love the Woodland Wishes and Critters sets from the holiday catalogue. Perfect for winter.

  155. Crystal S. October 6, 2016 at 1:10 am

    The monstrous Halloween set would be great for little boy birthday cards!

  156. Debbie Cundiff October 6, 2016 at 8:44 am

    Coloring the stamped image is my favorite. It lets me be creative with how I color.

  157. Julie October 6, 2016 at 8:48 am

    I love all CTMH products!

  158. Nadine Taillefer October 6, 2016 at 8:49 am

    Coloring relaxes me so very much. Thank you for such generosity and amazing designs!

  159. Jennifer carmichael October 6, 2016 at 8:50 am

    Absolutely love everything!

  160. Camille Pimentel October 6, 2016 at 8:55 am

    For me it is a toss up between Yuletime Joy Stamps and the Merry Christmas stamp (Y1009). They would both be wonderful to win! Such beautiful crafting stamps and accessories.

  161. Elaine McDonald October 6, 2016 at 8:59 am

    Cards are beautiful…..thank you for sharing them

  166. Angela October 6, 2016 at 10:15 am

    Beautiful cards! Heading to my craft space to try out these ideas! Thanks SCT and CTMH!

  167. Laurie Hendershot October 6, 2016 at 11:30 am

    I am new to Close to my Heart products, and I loved all Kim Crawford’s card designs using the same stamp set. The coloring with marker card just makes me so happy! Thank you for the link to the Holiday Expressions Idea Book! Wow! Everything is so amazing! I must confess, though, that my heart skipped a beat when I saw the “A Child is Born” stamp set. So very precious! Love, love, love what I am seeing, and I am so excited for all the inspiration! Thank you!

  168. Laurie Higgins October 6, 2016 at 1:38 pm

    I love these cards. I am going to have try this.

  169. Keeley Kirwan October 6, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    Monstrous Halloween are my favorite Thin Cuts and coordinating stamps from Close To My Heart in the Holiday Expressions Idea Book!! =)

  170. Cary Ann Lombardo October 6, 2016 at 4:12 pm

    Thanks for all of the great tips and techniques today. You always give me new ideas.

  171. Michelle October 6, 2016 at 4:14 pm

    That’s a tough decision but Blessed Beyond Measure or Woodland Wishes would most likely be my favs! The three card examples using one background are great!

  172. Jeannine H October 6, 2016 at 4:39 pm

    Love the different techniques. Each card is beautiful.

  173. Brenda Stainton October 6, 2016 at 8:43 pm

    I love the versatility of stamps! You could have a couple of really great stamp sets and make a ton of different cards. I like the Woodland wishes thin cut bundle. There are lots of others I like but this one really caught my eye.

  174. Margo Smith October 6, 2016 at 9:15 pm

    Christmas Down Undr is super cute – it is my favourite?

  175. Melinda Wilson October 7, 2016 at 12:35 pm

    I love the idea of doing the same card so many ways!!

  176. Diann :) October 7, 2016 at 3:40 pm

  177. Jennifer I October 7, 2016 at 4:13 pm

  178. Sonya Plowman October 7, 2016 at 7:22 pm

  183. Amber M. October 8, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    Kim’s cards are GORGEOUS. I did not think of using the reactive paint with a stamp set, but this is a must-try for me! Thanks so much for the chance to win a prize from CTMH … my absolute fave is the Joy To You and Me stamp set.

  184. Lynette Ballard October 8, 2016 at 3:14 pm

    I like the one with the bright colors and distress markers. Very pretty!

  185. Julie A. Shearer October 8, 2016 at 3:35 pm
