How to Use Stamps in Scrapbooking (1)Have you wanted to learn how to use stamps in scrapbooking? That’s a question that my customers were asking me. So I put together a Scrapbook Class to show them some ways to use stamps in scrapbooking. These are only a couple of the pages from that class.

These pages are made with mostly retired Stampin’ Up! colors and stamps, but the same thing can be done with any color or stamp set.

This page was made using A Rose is a Rose stamp set, with Lavender Lace, Green Galore and Summer Sun ink pads to create the side border for the page. The side border was finished with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. The page background is Pixie Pink card stock that is stamped with VersaMark ink. The photo blocks are cut out of Whisper White card stock using the Labels Collection Framelits then sponged with Summer Sun ink.

I’ve always loved two-step stamping and I also love roses. So using this stamp set to show how to use stamps in scrapbooking was perfect.

This is another stamp set that I really love and was sad to see it retire. It is Toile Blossoms. To make the top border for this page, I used Stazon Ink to stamp the image on some Whisper White card stock. Then colored the image with Stampin’ Pastels. The colors used were Handsome Hunter, Summer Sun and Cameo Coral. The Handsome Hunter is a perfect color to go with the Sage Shadow background. Using a different stamp from the same set, I stamp a background design with Sage Shadow ink.

The photo mats and the journalling block are Summer Sun card stock cut with the Ovals Collection Framelits and sponged with some Cameo Coral ink.

This is only a couple of the pages from my latest Scrapbook Class. Be sure to check back in a couple of days to see some more pages showing how to use stamps in scrapbooking.
