Using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to distress paper is so easy. I like it a lot better than coffee dying paper. When I do a session of dying paper with coffee I tend to make a lot and then I have to find a place to store the papers. By using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist I can choose to make the cards when I want them and I don’t have to store dyed papers. I can change up the colors and make them any way I want.
Having the Stamp Platform by Tim Holtz makes this project so easy. I love using stamps and with the creation of clear mounted stamps, it is easy to load up a bunch of these stamps to make cool journal cards.
Test your stamps to make sure they are all the same thickness when mixing stamps from other stamp sets.
I will place a card that I want to use in the stamp platform. Then arrange the stamps on the card, close the lid to the stamp platform so that the stamps will be picked up on the door. Make sure to use the magnets to keep your paper in place. Ink with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven as many times as necessary.
Mix up the surface of your journal cards, use plain cardstock and add some dictionary pages to others. If you have a sewing machine that is another touch that can be added. Sew a design around the edges.
Have fun using those rubber stamps and I hope you enjoyed seeing the Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial today.
