Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a patriotic layout. Its no secret how much I love to stamp and with the new We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced, I can stamp easily on my layouts! Yes!
Because I did not have any specific supplies to the 4th of July, I got creative with what I had on hand. And in doing that, I created a layout I love! Just look at that custom star paper I was able to create!
To make the custom paper, I cut a piece of Bazzill Blue cardstock to fit the top of my layout. I grabbed a star background stamp and white paint. I placed the cling stamp on my Precision Press Advanced. Notice how its only the top clear piece? You can use that piece separately! It has soft feet in all four corners allowing you to stamp just about anywhere. Paint was brushed onto my image and I stamped repeatedly across my blue cardstock. Vicki Boutin’s paints are perfect for this application as they dry quickly on paper.
For the bottom of my layout, I created stripes from red cardstock using my Trim & Score Board.
To help line my stripes up precisely, I used my Template Studio mat to help out. With help from the guides on the mat, I could space the stripes apart evenly and keep the lines straight. Which is good, because I not good at getting things to line up correctly. Ha!
After adding a few die cut stars and other embellishments, I added a title using, you guessed it, stamps!
Once again, I used the top piece of the Precision Press Advanced only. I placed my letter and number stamps directly on my layout (without inking). This way, I could line my stamps up on my project, exactly how I desired. Then I placed the Precision Press clear plate over the top, pushed down, and picked up my stamps. Then it was time to add ink and stamp for real. Oh, how easy this was! And I was not concerned about “messing it up” because I knew everything was aligned.
Do you like to stamp on your layouts? Happy 4th of July!
