TN Tuesday: Stamping Techniques with Serengeti


TN Tuesdays are focused on memory keeping in our Simple Dori Traveler’s Notebook. We want to bring ideas you can use in this size medium but most of the designs and techniques we share can be used with numerous sizes and mediums for memory keeping and planning. Our kits contain non-yellowing photopolymer stamps. The primary function of Photopolymer stamps is to transfer ink. Because ink sticks well to this type of stamp, you get a crisp clean image on your design.

Here is a beautiful example from team member Sabrina Poole.

For this TN project, I decided to focus on stamps and use them in unique ways in my project. I also knew I was going to use the traveler’s notebook to start documenting a fun family zoo trip last September.

Instead of using patterned papers to back my photos or layer behind the photos, I decided to use stamps to layer behind the photos. I used the animal print stamp set in 3 different colors behind my photos. I love how it adds a pop of color and more patterns to my spread.

I also decided to make my own custom embellishments by stamping several different patterns on paper and then cut them out in a diamond shape. The diamond shape was inspired by the yellow TN paper on the left side. I had so much fun making and stamping all these patterns!

Stamps provide so many versatile uses when scrapbooking. Stamping to layer behind photos, to make custom embellishments, to make a phrase on a label, and many more other uses.

I hope you enjoyed my project! I can’t wait to see your stamping projects!

Pick up these same stamps that Sabrina used in her project in the store today.
