Oak House Studio One Stamp Project

Such a great idea by Lynnda of Oak House Studio to take one stamp (the Walesby Heart) and see how many different ways you can use it in her One Stamp Challenge. I can tell you I was reluctant to stop but after an internal crafty war I disciplined myself to finish a few things off at 4pm, take pics, upload on blogger & FB then see how much time I have left!
So here goes.

traditional heat embossing

Stamped with twinkling H20's
More embossing this is a gift card made to hold a cheque as a wedding/ engagement pressy 
the back is where the cheque is slipped into a pocket and a message written on the die cut.

Friendly plastic jewellery stamped with the heart
Offcuts shaped into a heart and put on a mini card blank (above)  and the rest added to a mini canvass (left) which I'd painted and embossed. Added some jewellery bits too, and the
hanging heart is made from the UTEE heated in a melt pot & stamped into.

In this journal page the heart it used in the background made with a gelatine plate, then held over the heart and brayered to give a rubbing effect and also stamped around the edges. 
The stone on the right is from the beach, stamped onto then writing added around the edge (ahhhhh).

Card one was made with a heart made from a Modge Podge glue gun stick, treasure gold added. 
Same for the second card but a MP butterfly added which was also highlighted with treasure gold

This was my absolute favourite so I'm going to get it framed! Mono print using a home made gelatine plate (following instructions from the Frugal Crafter on YouTube). Leave a comment if you'd like a tutorial.
Same technique but made into a card.

Print 3 also a card.
 Had great fun with this challenge. Still a few more I might add but wanted to get post done while it's quiet! Hope you like them. Suz xx
