Stamping Platform

  1. Cut Comodore blue cardstock to 10" x 7", score at 5", and fold to form an A7 card. Set aside. 
  2. Use a stamping platform and Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp Serenity Stardust  onto white cardstock. 
  3. Color the image and background with Copic markers. 
  4. Use an oval die to cut the image panel and use the Copics to fill in any blank bits.
  5. Cut blue cardstock the matching stitched oval die
  6. Edge the stitched oval die-cut with Golden Glitz Delicata ink and heat set. Heat setting makes the Golden Glitz ink sparkle more.
  7. Mat the image pane with the stitched, edged oval die-cut. Set aside.
  8. Cut another piece of Comodore blue cardstock to 4.75" x 6.75" piece of blue cardstock to create the background panel.
  9. Mount the Reverse Stars stamp on an acrylic block. Ink the stanp with Golden Glitz Delicata ink and repeatedly stamp onto the bckground panel.

  11. Use magnets to secure the background to a stamping platform.
  12. Place the Scripted Stars Clear Stamp Set #458 facedown on the center of the background panel with the bottom edge of the stamp flush with the bottom edge of the panel.
  13. Press the lid of the platform onto the back of the stamp and lift.
  14. Ink the stamp with the Shark Tooth White ink and stamp. Repeat if necessary for a clean image.
  15. Keeping the stamp on the lid, move the background panel ~3.25" to the right and secure it with magnets.
  16. Re-ink the stamp with the white ink and stamp again. Repeat inking and stamping if necessary
  17. Remove the background panel from the platform and heat set the gold and white inks.
  18. Edge the background panel with the gold ink, then heat set again to bring out the sparkle.
