TEXTURE STAMPS: I believe I can fly

Have you seen the new Kaisercraft texture clear stamps that have recently been released?
Well, I reckon that if you love stamps - then you are so gonna love these and for those that are new to stamping well I can see a serious new love affair starting...... They are awesome and such super value - but don't take my word for it, you'd better try them for out yourself!

I love them and have been giving them a bit of a work out of late

We were asked to create a project that showcases these wonderful new clear stamps. Check out the Kaisercraft blog and see the awesome projects my Design Team buddies have come up - WOWee, so many ideas and gorgeous creations; love them all!!

In the meantime, this is what I came up

Layout by Trudi Harrison: CS755 Clear Stamp – Grid; CS759 Clear Stamp – Flourish; Kaisercraft Up, Up and Away Collection Patterned Papers P540 ‘Carousel’ (both sides), P542 ‘Sideshow’ (Reverse), P543 ‘Rollercoaster’, ; Up, Up and Away PP826 6″ Paper Pad; Up, Up and Away EM920 Printed Chipboard; Up, Up and Away RB870 Rubons (colour); A225 Alpha Stickers ‘Brown’; SB222 ‘Believe’ rhinestone title; CB101 lowercase chipboard letters; IP710 Sandstone Ink; Glue Dots; Foam Tape. Other: Red Ink; Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad; clear embossing powder; heat gun; scallop border punch.

I have used Kaisercraft clear stamps 'Grid' and 'Flourish'

Using a Versamark Stamp Pad I created a 'watermark' effect using the Kaisercraft 'Grid' clear stamp. The effect is very subtle which was the look that I wanted to achieve

I have also used the 'Grid' stamp to alter the Kaisercraft chipboard letters. The letters were inked red and then stamped with the Grid stamp using Kaisercraft sandstone ink. Versamark was then applied to the letters with Clear embossing over the top. A heat gun was then used to set the embossing powder, with another couple of coats applied afterwards to create the glossy finish.

I absolutely adore the Flourish clear stamp and have a few more ideas for this one. The swirls of the stamp, I thought were perfect for creating clouds. The flourish stamp has been used to alter the reverse side of the Carousel patterned paper. I stamped the image repeatedly with Kaisercraft Sandstone ink and then cut my clouds from a template that I made.

I NEED THESE! I MUST find them!
I really like a stamp that is highly useful like this!! I like to stamp my own BGs sometimes to get the colors I want/need. Must see if I can find them here!
TFS your beautiful Layout (though it would help if you would inspire me with something I have Trudi LOL!)
