Two ways with a small stamp set

Two ways with a small stamp set – Altenew Mini delight melon

When you get a small stamp, there is always an easy way to use it, but what else can you do with it? Well today, I’ve got two ways with a small stamp set – showing your the classical way to use it and an alternative method as well.

It’s always a good idea to find other ways to use a stamp so you can stretch your supplies and get more for your money!

This is part of a fun Instagram hop to celebrate the release of the Altenew Mini Delight: One in A Melon. For more details, check out the end of the post on how to enter over on Instagram. 

Make sure you check out the end of the post for more details on the hop, along with your next stop!

Mini Delight: One in A Melon is available to buy from 4/15/2021 at 12:01 am EDT.

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY GUEST DESIGN WORK FOR ALTENEW - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Two ways with a small stamp set

Two ways with a small stamp set - classic technique

This first card uses the small stamp set as is and I created a very Clean & simple card with some complimentary ink blending. To start, stamp the main body of the melon from the Altenew Mini Delight: One in A Melon in Altenew Coral Berry ink

Next, ink up the outer edge of the main body of the melon on Ruby Red ink using the rock & roll method with your ink pad. In addition, stamp the outer of the Melon in Lagoon ink along with the pips in Jet Black ink.

To create the background, simply ink blend with a small ink blending tool Citrus Burst ink onto the a card panel. In addition, add two smaller areas of Lagoon ink to create movement up the card.

After die-cutting the melon out, foam mount this onto the front and stamp the sentiment off to one side. 

Two ways with a small stamp set - alternative use

For this card, I used the melon to create a fun pattern to add to my card. Start off by stamping the melon body in Iceberg Ink in a row horizontally. Next, stamp the next line in Eastern Sky and then Ultramarine and keep repeating, overlapping the layers for interest.

In addition, stamp the outer melon image in embossing ink and heat set in gold embossing powder. This will add a little shine to your pattern. For this card, I die-cut a circle panel out of the pattern and foam mounted onto a card panel.

To finish this card off, I add an Altenew Fancy Hello die-cut and embellished with the Glacier Caves enamel dots
