Scenic Stamping

Here are a few of the scenic stamping projects I have been working on. I have to apologize in advance, just as for my other posts. I don't have the world's best picture/camera skills, but I'm working on it. The 2 images above are the first two I did. A wonderful woman named Anita taught us how to sponge on color and use post-it notes to our advantage. I was pretty impressed that I was able to do these, but she kept on adding new techniques and products to the classes.

This image above is using some of the absolutely gorgeous Stampscapes stamps. Using them is addictive! The detail and depth of these rubber stamps is a joy to work with. This piece was made using Lakeside Cove, one of my favorites, it is everything but the ducks!

This was my first full page piece. The young lady is a little large proportionally (or so my engineer son told me), but it is still a very pretty image. I used the crooked path, rocky peaks, meadow, sedge filler and my favorite oak branch. This was done on shiny cardstock (Stampin Up) and used various Stampin Up and Staz-on inks.

This image was done on Stampbord, which was a
new product to me. It is hard to see in this picture, but the fun part of Stampbord is to scratch out highlights into the stamped image before sealing the piece with a spray sealer. These images came from Nature Sheet 6. I've slowly been adding to my collection of these stamps, but I keep on finding just one more that I really need.

These images are also done on stampbord with Stampscapes and other manufacturers. The small piece is a Michael Strong stamp which I turned into a pendant.

All of the supplies here are available from Inspired Designs you can e-mail her from her blog or give her a call at 207-576-8610.

Thanks for taking a look! Please let me know what you think!

  1. These are absolutely beautiful Penny. I am very impressed. I wish there was a local store down in Miami that gave stamping classes. Excellent job on these. :)
