- Ribbed Background will be available for purchase on July 5th.
- It will retail for £9.
- I designed this background stamp with a pattern repeat... all four edges meet to form continuous stamping possibilities, now you should be able to stamp a whole sheet of paper or simply stamp a die cut shape, so many possibilities with a ribbed knit.
- DesignA Knit will be available for purchase on July 5th.
- It will retail for £14.
- DesignA Knit contains a total of 35 images, there are 3 different types of knitted stitches, each with outline and fill areas to mix and match and create various knitables. The set also includes a couple of pompoms large and small with a small yarn to thread them onto. The sentiments can be paired up and inked in different colours.
Thought I would share a few tips...
The stamps are easy to curve slightly for a dimensional kitted look
I also curved the 'fill' stitch stamp, laying my acrylic block on top to match with the outline
Stamp the first line a third way up an oval
I aim the the next line to keep with the central stitch there's a slight gap at the edges but you won't notice when you're finished
So when you're finished with stamping the outline, simply stamp the 'fill' stitch, I used a paler colour to give a better contrast.
Next, trim along the bottom edge, notice my happy accident? a darker strip amongst the pale pink(but I can live with that LOL)
I use my fiskars stamp press for this large background stamp, it's easier to line up and hold a decent size stamp
I stamped half of my card front, the edge is pretty enough to leave alone,
I stamped the background again, it nearly met, but a bit more practice should help, the yellow is quite a pale colour to match up
I've added some stamped pompoms to my hat and one of the sentiments.
I haven't fussy cut those pompoms, I have created a knitables svg for all those knitting needs.
I just wanted to show you some knitted creations from some time ago....
I love stamping knitted strips, I used a darker colour for the outline and the 'fill' a lighter colour of the same tone
To get the seem in the socks I simply placed a post it note to stamp one side and then repeat for the top half.
This effect on this card is very simple, I stamped the lines of knit onto kraft card, and blue card, to give a great contrast.
Ok, so more strips, but I love how masculine this looks without the traditional dark browny colours
So, now that you've seen a few of my creations... Do head over to the wonderfully talented Chris the cards on her blog are gorgeous...
Thank you so much for stopping by I hope you enjoyed all the samples with my new stamp set, Hopefully we've left you itching to get crafty and any comments would be lovely.
Have a wonderfully creative Day
