Global Stamping Friends - Meant To Be

Hello and welcome to the first Global Stamping Friend's blog hop for 2021! With the new January to June Mini Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue there are some wonderful new products out to create with. This month we are sharing our Meant To Be! Whether it was the stamp set, new bundle or crafting something for an anniversary or Valentines Day we are sharing with you our projects to inspire you.
The Berry Blessings bundle from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue was my Meant To Be. Relatives on both sides of my family have blueberry fields in Nova Scotia so this one had to be added to my collection! This bundle includes the Berry Blessings stamp set and the Berry Delightful 12" x 12" designer series paper. And it coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry bundle from the Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue.
A great way to make stamping the filler image to match up perfectly with the outline image is to use the Stamparatus. The picture above shows how I had it set up with multiple stamps. The plates can come off and then rotate so that you put 1 stamp on each side of each plate. First stamp the outline of the leaves and blueberries. Then clean the stamps before removing them from the plates. Next place the clean filler stamp over top of the stamped blueberry or leaf image. Make sure to line up the edges so its perfectly placed. Swing the plate over the clean stamp to pick it up from the stamped cardstock then open the plate. Ink up the stamp and then close the plate to ink up the inside of the blueberry. To create the lighter image on both the blueberries and the leaf place a clean scrap piece of paper over the cardstock and stamp on it, remove the scrap paper, don't ink the stamp up but press it onto the cardstock to get the lighter image. Try it both ways to see what you like best! Full colour or half strength.
