Scrap layout with Zen using stamps
Hi DLS Design friends,
It’s NenaScrap with you today, and I’m so happy to be here with you on the DLS blog!
I wanted to share a step-by-step process to create a scrapbook layout with the beautiful Zen collection and give some extra attention to the clear stamps. Clear stamps are so versatile to use, and you can re-use them time after time.
Today I am sharing some fun ideas with the collection from Zen while creating a banner with the Zen clear stamp set.
Are you joining me?
First, gather your scrapbooking supplies! Things I have used:
- Scrap Kit Zen
- Chipboard Essential Shapes Gray And White
- White cardstock
- Distress Oxide inks ( Picked Raspberry, Kitsch Flamingo, Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Mustard Seed )
- Versafine Clair Nocturne
- Nuvo Liquid Glue
- 1’’ Circle Punch
Okay, let's start...
I started by making stamped circles with the Zen Clear Stam, which comes in the main kit. In the picture above and below, you can see the result. But shhh... Stay tuned to the DLS Design Instagram account, and you'll get a little surprise in our Reel on Monday the 28th 😊. Make sure to check out the Reel for more info on my stamping adventure.
The stamp set has several stamps, and I used the circle banners combined to form some circles. The symbols are lined with a 1-inch punch, making them even more helpful.
After stamping several stamps in different colors and combining some into circles, I cut them with my 1-inch punch.
After this, I used them as a banner for my page, making a fun detail on the top of the page. I also tore two strips of printed paper and glued them to the bottom of my white cardstock. I chose two 3x4 inch photos for the page.
I added some detail behind my photos with the pink Ranger Tim Holtz - Distress Oxides and the DLS Design stencil from the kit.
A stencil is so easy to use and gives you detail quickly. I have chosen to use it with ink, but you can also use other media like paint, sprays, etc.
Here is the result! This stencil came out great.
I finished by adding die-cuts, clear stickers, chipboard stickers, and some dots as embellishments. I hope you like it and are feeling inspired to play around with your stamps as well! We can't wait to see your result!
