Paper Wings Scrappy Blog Hop!!!

How about another Blog Hop?! A bunch of Angels from Paper Wings decided to highlight how to use rubber stamping in your scrapbooks. I confess, it's hard for me to create a scrapbook page WITHOUT any stamping... the pages just seem a bit unfinished. If my fingers aren't inky when I complete a page, it's not complete ;)



Ink: Burnt Umber & Cognac Palettes, VersaMark

Other: Extra Jumbo Circle punch, Mega & Giga Scallop Square punches, Pop Dots, foam tape, faux dewdrops, blending pad

I decided to do a double-page layout that was almost mirrored... the inward facing photos helped guide this. I only used one tiny sliver of pattern paper (upper right of Heidi page)... and created the rest with stamps! The Script Background was stamped in VersaMark & Cognac (twice without re-inking), and the Dingbat medallion was also stamped in VM. I created movement with the punched Flourish by varying the position of the image, allowing part of the image to 'go off' the edge, and by popping some up on foam tape & pop dots. It is grounded by the addition of the dewdrops that are in a straight line.

Aren't my Heidi & Thor the CUTEST BABIES EVER?! Just to quote what you are thinking: {why yes, Barb... it is true... I have never seen ANYTHING cuter than these two} Just a little side note... my poor Heidi (the blonde) had to have one of her eyes removed due to a corneal-something and is now affectionately called Bruno. She looks like a total badass right now until her stitches come out in a couple of weeks, but I thought I'd document her in her glory days.

You can see more scrappy examples of mine HERE and HERE and don't forget to check out all of these wonderful Angels' scrappy rubber-stamped works:
