Scrappy Boy Stamps - Arabian Nights

Hey Crafty Friends,

I'm sharing my 2nd project using the latest Arabian Nights stamp set from Scrappy Boy Stamps. I've steered away from creating a card today that suites to overall theme of this set to show how just one single stamp in a set can be used in different ways. It doesn't have to be this stamp set exactly, look through stamp sets you own and see if you are able to take a single stamp and use it in some way! It's a great way to maybe use a stamp set you haven't used for some time!

Card Recipe:

1. Take a large stitched rectangle and die cut from Oreo Crunch card stock.

2. Take the next stitched rectangle in your die set and die cut from Pumpkin Patch card stock

3. With your orange card panel use a Woodgrain background die plate. This particular one has a running stitch so could also be used in slimline cards!

4. To create the polaroid look I have taken some dies, one is a rectangle shape and one is more square, cut the square slightly higher than central and you've got yourself a polaroid frame! Using the square die cut from Kiwi Crush card stock.

5. Die cut some leaves from various green shade card stock. I've used scraps from my draw however you could also use inks to create your different green shades also.

6. Stamp your image on alcohol marker friendly card stock and colour in your favourite medium. I'm using Copics just 2 colours today Y38 and Y35.

Tip: If you don't have a 3rd marker in the combo you want to use you can use 2 and then use the darker marker, in my case here Y38 for 2 or 3 more layers of ink to create darker shadow areas.

7. Take a stamping platform and your polaroid frame to stamp your sentiment on before you start piecing it all together.

8. Take your green square you cut previously and glue your image onto this square. Now glue your leaves around the image, it doesn't matter if they are overhanging to make sure you image is still fully seen, as you can see in mine below I have only use part of the leaves and then snipped off the overhang. 

9. Layer your panels up with double sided tape

I hope you have enjoyed today's inspiration and are inspired to try something similar. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Until next time, happy crafting!
