Create a Stamped Collage Using StazOn Pigment Inkpad

by Lori Warren

I love the new StazOn Pigment ink about as much as I love stamping!  Finding ways to maximize the use of this mixed media ink would be a big win in my book! How to go about achieving this goal? A stamped collage, of course!  Multiple stamps + multiple StazOn Pigment inks = Happy Stamper!

Skill: Beginner
Time: 1 hour


Step 1

Use stamps and a selection of StazOn Pigment ink to stamp a collage style background on a 6” x 4 ¼” panel of cardstock.  Remember to overlap and group images for the best effect.

Step 2

Apply Memento ink (Cottage Ivy & Teal Zeal) directly to craft matte, add water and then use fan brush to apply ink splatters to panel.

Step 3

With Piano Black StazOn Pigment ink, stamp the small image of lightbulb onto white cardstock.

Step 4

Using watercolor method (wet ink on matte), use Memento ink to lightly color lightbulb. Fussy cut image out.

Step 5

Stamp large lightbulb image onto white cardstock (with Piano Black, StazOn Pigment Ink) and then fussy cut the image out.

Step 6

Apply StazOn Peacock Feathers ink directly from ink pad to large lightbulb image. Cut image in half, lengthwise.

Step 7

Stamp the “Shine Bright” sentiment with Piano Black StazOn Pigment Ink.

Step 8

Make a close trim around the saying (rectangle in shape). Color lightly with Memento (watercolor method).

Step 9

Apply washi tape to lower portion of the card.

Step 10

Prep small lightbulb and saying with 3M double sided dimensional tape.

Step 11

Adhere left half of the large lightbulb image to the top portion of the card, slightly off center. Mount small lightbulb over this image (see card for placement).  Adhere saying over the washi tape.

Step 12

Mount panel to A6 sized card base of white cardstock. Apply black dots to the background with the Tuxedo Black irresistible Pico Embellisher.

Make A Fun Flamingo Card for Any Occasion

Make A Fun Flamingo Card for Any Occasion

I love using odd or found objects to create texture and patterns on cards or scrapbook pages. It is a great opportunity to see something in your home in a new light–as a potential texture! Today, I am creating a beautiful background effect using a cake molding matt (usually used for food) to stamp onto this background. The background is a great compliment to this super fun flamingo stamp from Carabelle Studio. I really like how this card came together! Keep scrolling to find out how I did it.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes


Step 1

Use VersaFine Clair Glamorous and ink the cake matt on the corner. Ink in an uneven manner around the edge only.

Step 2

Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock the size of your card front. Place the cardstock face down on the matt and apply some pressure.

Step 3

Carefully lift the cardstock. Ink the matt again and rotate the cardstock piece and stamp repeatedly around the left and bottom edge. Be sure to thoroughly wash the found object if possible. Since this is a food based object, I will need to clean all the ink off before using it again with food.

Step 4

Use a jumbo dauber and apply VersaFine Clair Charming Pink. Blend the ink around the outside edge only. Use VersaMagic Pink Petunia and blend towards the inside edge of the cardstock piece.

Step 5

Stamp a flamingo image in the open area of your card. Use watercolor paint to color to the neck and body of the Flamingo. Add a layer of dimensional glaze and leave to dry. Add finishing touches like a brad, “Just For You” sentiment, and diamanté. And mount the card panel to a card base.
