Hey all! This is a quick little post for Scrapbook Kits. I was thinking tutorial ideas and happened to see some of these things laying around. They come with kits, in packages and in every color, shape imaginable. I am talking about die cuts, journaling prompts, all those shaped pieces. And I was thinking of how to make them more interesting and of course thought..stamps! Here's a quick tutorial showing some stamping to transform and customize all those pieces you've got around your craft room!

On the first one here, I stamped a background stamp in a very light pink (which I don't think will
show up on camera), the blue ruler and the word Enjoy. The second one with a flourish stamp and then a text over that. Think layer and layer. The more you later, the more interesting it will be.


The yellow piece had the white flower so I simply stamped a couple flowers over that one. Simple but much more interesting! The next has a text stamp and a cloud stamped in Versamark. Want something subtle? Try stamping in Versamark.


The fun journaling prompt was great alone. But I added another fun sentiment and then a grid background stamp. Both in neutral shades. The bright scallop circle was brought to even more life with the large red heart, small hearts and flourish (though that may be hard to see). I accented it even further by adding a white gel pen and matching the white distressing of the paper.

And here is a finished card. I happened to have needed something for my Father in law and when I saw those pieces together I immediatly thought they could look good together on a card. I stamped the card base with a woodgrain stamp, layered the stamped die cuts and added a die cut sentiment which I covered with Stickles. Very cool! It wasn't the fastest project because of all the stamping but putting it together went together very quickly.
