Hi All

A good friend of mine pointed me at some lovely budgie stamps on Joanna Sheen’s website. They were drawn by Jayne Netley Mayhew, I just couldn’t resist them. This pair are quite small and lent themselves well to the domino sized stampbord.

Welcome Back 

Today I would like to share a picture of the stampbord necklace that I made just before Christmas. It features a Holly theme. 

Stampbord Necklace featuring Holly design

Stamps Used: Creative Expressions; Holly 

Golden Fluid Acrylic Paint, Quinacridone Nickle Azo Gold, Irredescent Gold Fine 

Ink Used; Tsukeneko Versafine in Onyx Black. 

Stampbord in Domino sized Pieces. 

These necklaces are such fun to make, the acrylic paints work beautifully on the surface and dry fast too. The Versafine ink dries perfectly over the Fluid Acrylic paint. I use a Crop A Dile to make the hole for the cord. The cord I’m using is 2mm cotton cord, it is made by Impex. 

Adding a few layers of UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) in clear, over the top of the paint, has given a superb sheen and really made the colours pop. 

If you haven’t tried stampbord yet, do give it a try. It is one of those things that people are afraid of trying, but it is super easy to use. I highly recommend using the Versafine ink with it, as it is a really black, black ;) and dries superbly. 

My top tip is to ink your stamp then lay the stamp on the desk, and take your piece of stampboard to the stamp. Really go for it, be brave, pounce and then press firmly to ensure the stampboard has full contact with the stamp. Hold the stamp down with one hand, grip the edges of the stampboard with your other hand and pull straight up. This avoids the chance of skidding your stampboard across the stamp and blurring your image. 

You can colour stampboard with inks, pens, pencils as well as paints. Adding UTEE as a final layer will help seal in your work to protect it from scratching, but is an optional extra. If you haven’t got a heat tool and UTEE, try just stamping onto it. It’s great fun and a superb surface to ‘play’ on.

Welcome Back

In today’s post I would like to share a picture of a very special piece of stampboard jewellery that I made back in May 2009. I am particularly please with this piece because of the painting technique that went into its creation. I was just ‘playing’ and it appeared.

On this occassion, I’m not going to give details on how this was created, as I am hoping to create an online class with this in the future. (If I can ever learn how to do this ).

Hope you like it though

 

Best wishes and thanks for reading

Welcome Back

Stampbord is one of those products that until you actually try it, you cannot see what all the fuss is about. How many of you have seen it in a magazine bought some and not opened the packet? Go on own up ;) I saw Glenda from Graphicus on television demonstrating some and really wanted to give it a go, but didn’t want to invest in a whole packet so never got round to trying it. My wonderful friend Glitter Monkey kindly sent me a few pieces to try and I’m hooked.

I bought a pack of domino sized pieces and some tools and made one piece and although I liked it, still didn’t really get over excited. A while back I did a class with Jane Collman and discovered how to use the tools and this helped me over my intimidation about stampboard and now I LOVE it!!!! I showed a book that I made using the stampboard for the covers and I spent a whole day making domino sized jewellery pieces back in May.

Here is the first necklace I made, I’ve double embossed the piece using clear UTEE for a more durable finish
