Hello hello everyone! How are you? This is Deepti Stephens and today I'll be showing you How to Use Border Stamps in a Fun and Creative Way. It's a kind of lengthy post - so many cards and so many pics in one post so just grab a cup of coffee or anything you like, relax and enjoy reading this post. :)
Today I'm going to show you six card designs made by using Marianne Stamps. Did you check them at the shop? No? Go and check after reading the post! These stamps are a must to have in your stash because they are pocket friendly, so versatile and they have great designs too. Let me show you the stamps first that are in stock now..

Look at them! They are so wonderful isn't it? I chose Border Stamp - Arrows and made cards out of this stamp set. I'll be showing you how you can use these border stamps in a fun and different way. Always remember 'Imagination is more important than knowledge' :)
Here I sponged the background with mustard seed distress ink and stamp the reel image with mustard seed and grey inks.
Then I masked off the edges with post it notes and stamped small images from different stamp set.
I then fussy cut it out and adhered it on to the card base.
Finally stamped the sentiment from Technique tuesday, I bent the sentiment at an angel and stamped just to add a little bit of interest to my card.
Here is the second one! I simply masked the edges of the card stock and stamped the arrows with Black Soot Distress Ink.
And stamped the sentiment from Altenew - Super Script 2 on to some Neenah Card Stock with Hero Arts Neon Pink Ink and fussy cut it and adhered it on to the card base.
I love how this card turned out! The splotchy stamping, colors and everything is funky about this card :)
Here comes the next! I simply placed one of the stamps on to the acrylic block upside down - i.e., the details of the stamps facing the acrylic block and the solid portion looking upwards.
And stamped on to the card stock with pigment inks.
So cool! Isn't it? Here is another one made with the same technique - a kind of color block pattern :)
I used pigments inks for stamping again!
You can also make plaid pattern or any fancy pattern you like.
Here is the next one! I ink blended the background with Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks. After finishing the blending I stamped the checks pattern repeatedly on the background with Picked Raspberry distress ink.
Look at that cool tone on tone background! (Y) Finally stamped the sentiment with Archival Jet Black Ink.
Here comes the last one - the most funkiest mixed media kind of card! I didn't know that it would turn out like this :) It's one of the craziest cards ever that I made! LOL!
I partially stamped the diamond pattern with Versamark ink and heat set it with Zing White Embossing Powder. Then I ink smooshed the background with distress inks.
I stamped the sentiment on vellum and adhered it on to the card base. I rubbed the versamark ink on one side of the panel and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.
And that's it! I hope I gave you some ideas on how to use these stamps and I hope you got inspired.
Thank you so much for stopping by. See you soon :)
