BYO Stamps – Stripes from the Waterfront Stamp Set

How is it July already? Where has the year gone?

For my recent BYO Stamps class, all of the projects used the same stamp set. Today, I’m sharing how we made stripes from the Waterfront Stamp Set.

This is similar to a project I made previously, just with different colours.

I like monochrome projects, but this is actually Very Vanilla, Calypso Coral and Terracotta Tile. As the Terracotta Tile ribbon is quite close in colour to the Calypso Coral stamping, I was able to stick to using inks from the Subtles Collection.

Although there aren’t any stripe stamps in the Waterfront Stamp Set, if you look at the images, one of them resembles a stripe. Just because it looks like water or a strip of land, doesn’t mean that is all it should be! I love using stamps in a completely different way.

I’ve created stripes here by spacing them evenly across the page. You could make diagonals, a cross-hatch pattern, or just randomly stamp on your cardstock. There are lots of different options.

The ribbon then hides the top of the stamping to create two distinct parts of the project. On this separation line, three flowers from the Small Bloom Punch are stuck onto shapes from the Layering Circles Dies.

Finally, three Rhinestones add some bling.

Why not use a sentiment in place of the flowers, or place one in the top corner? Alternatively, it can stay sentiment-free. That’s the beauty of crafting, the choice is yours!

I think a batch of these in different colours would make a lovely gift to send to someone.
