Stamping with Felt

I made this card using a technique from Technique Junkies called stamping on felt.   For technique you need a  rubber stamp that has a corresponding die cut.  Cut out a piece of felt with the die cut and then attach the cut out piece of felt to a block.  I used sticky tape to attach the felt but you could use Velcros.  

Once you have your felt stamp attached to the block, add alcohol ink in several colours to the stamp and then stamp on glossy card stock. I stamped my felt stamp several times getting different variations of the colour of the images as the piece of felt held less ink.  Using a stamp positioner to align the rubber stamp over the alcohol inked images I stamped the image then cut out the image with the matching die cut.   I used the following products on my card:

  • Designer paper - Nostalgic Essentials by Authentique
  • Sizzix Stamp and Diecut - Antique Flowers and Butterflies
  • Tim Holtz - Alcohol Inks
  • Stazon Ink 
Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
