Raise your hand if you LOVE STAMPS! They are truly are one of the most useful investments as they can be used over and over, stamped on practically any surface or project type, and in such diverse manners. Today Ksenia is exploring three different project types, with multiple Prima stamps, while showing a variety of techniques! We think you’ll find her work just delightful like we do!
“Working with stamps is always an exciting experience! If you have a strange feeling that something is missing in your work, then just add a little stamping!)))” ~ Ksenia
Stamp your Finnabair dragonfly stamp on vellum with embossing ink, add black, glossy embossing powder and emboss. Cut out for a dramatic embellishment that is lightweight…perfect for an art journal page or card!

“My card is a little story about the beginning of spring in my country. This is the time when nature slowly wakes up, throws off a heavy white blanket. It dresses a beautiful green dress, embroidered with flowers ... The time when the leaves slowly begin to appear, when the grass begins to look out on the ground free of snow. I love this season. Despite the tons of dirt on the streets, it smells like hope.” ~ Ksenia
Use Finn’s stamps on watercolor (or thick white cardstock) with black ink. Cut design out and use with foam squares to create gorgeous dimension and design on your card! The black/white color palette provides a peaceful resting space.

“What is beautiful in Prima's collections? They fit perfectly with each other. For example, as in my work, I combined Misty Rose paper and Lavender Frost flowers, plus stamps. I also discovered a wonderful way to create a 12 * 12 page from A4 paper. Just connect two sheets with each other and it turns out beautiful!” ~ Ksenia
Use your stamps to create visual interest on the background of a layout. It can be used as a filler in “bare” spots, or use to draw the eye across the page with just Color Philosophy ink and a Prima stamp!
