Urban Scribble with Lindsay Weirich from The Frugal Crafter

 

Lindsay Weirich spent a quick minute to put together a masculine card over the weekend using Nathalie’s Urban Scribble Foam Stamp, Cling Rubber and Stencil Set.

 

Lindsay incorporated all the tools in this set and it created quite a awesome masculine style scene card. There are just so many possibilities in one set, we know there will be endless creativity with Urban Scribbles.

Fashion Dame with Lindsay Weirich from The Frugal Crafter

1-20160425 Nat Kalbach and Friends

Lindsay Weirich is having some vintage fun with Nathalie Kalbach’s Cling Fashion Dame Rubber Stamp Set in a video tutorial and it’s perfect timing with the blog hop we just had this week. Here’s her video, enjoy!

Two tips to keep in mind that are different from the way Lindsay used the products. First, ink your stencil flat on the table, not in your hand. Second, when peeling off your stencil, turn it upside down and peel the paper off the stencil, holding the stencil flat against the table. These two tricks will keep your stencil from getting bent and warped, warping will impair its function if used later with paste or sprays.

Products that we spotted in the video are:

Nathalie Kalbach Stencils on a Dreamweaver Thursday

BLOG TEMPLATE

Now that we are in full stride on our hop with Nathalie and Friends, it is time to bring in our Dreamweaver Thursday focus with stencils and since we are hopping with product sets that include stencils we are in double stencil mania.

Each of the three Foam and Cling Rubber Stamp sets by Nathalie Kalbach include a quality plastic stencil that add depth and dimension to a project. Let’s have a close up look at each stencil from these projects.

The stencil included in the Bird set is more like our templates as it has removable pieces used for masks. The intricate designs of the stencils in the Elephant and Urban Scribbles have great textural depth for layering. Each stencil design add complementary details to the stamps as well which gives us room to bring out Dreamweaver Stencils to fill in the gaps.

Here is a fun example of bringing our Dreamweaver Stencils into mixed media with a journal page by Nathalie Kalbach.

A tip using your metal stencils with sticky mediums is to always keep the stencil flat on a surface while peeling away the paper substrate, that way the metal stencil is not damaged or warped and ready for the next project.

We are very excited to get started sharing the projects that our designer’s created with stamp products designed by International Mixed Media artist Nathalie Kalbach and hop along with her and the her talented Creative Squad this week.

When Nathalie Kalbach’s fantastic mixed media designs are made into stamps and stencils they become a terrific companion to normal stamping as well as creating canvas art, journals and so much more for mixed media projects. For the January release this year, Nathalie designed 3 new and innovative mixed media sets that include a 2-sided foam stamp, a cling rubber stamp and a coordinating stencil, all of which create great options for the papercrafter and mixed media artist.

It is going to be a great week of inspiration, so stop by our blog daily to get your creativity recharged plus everyone, really we mean everyone, will like that there are prizes.

Foam Stamping Fun

We’ve been sharing fun projects with the wonderful foam stamp sets designed for Stampendous by Nathalie Kalbach ever since they hit our shelves in January.

We’ll be having a blog hop week focused on these great stamps the last week of April. (did we mention that the supply is limited and you might want to grab them now?)

But for those of you who have already got them, Nathalie has posted a fantastic video showing three ways to ink them up! You won’t want to miss this!
