Stamps - by Tracy Jackson

                                                          Good Morning Bee Arty Fans

 Today I am showing you a great idea on how to use those scraps you just cant bare to throw away

I am always on the hunt for ephemera for my cards and now my very first junk journal. So I decided to make some stamps using left over paper from Spread Your Wings collection

Firstly I cut the paper to the size I wanted - 3 x 4.5cm. Stamped and coloured the rose from Forever Stamp set to match the paper and then fussy cut the butterflies from the same collection 



I then used the brick stamp that comes in the Life Is Tough Stamp set as a background element



Fussy cut the roses then glue into place. I then inked up the edges



Now time to glue onto an old paper page. You can use any glue for this, I brushed matte meduim over the top to give it a bit of protection.



I left to dry for a couple hours then cut around edges making sure to left some of the text from paper showing as a boarder

I was really pleased on hoe these turned out... I ended up spending a whole afternoon relaxing making at least 50 of stamps!

Until next time... Happy crafting
