Hello friends and welcome to the Inspired Stamps blog for OWH's annual Memorial Day Bloghop!!
As a company, this is our 3rd year participating so I know people want to see the artwork, see the store specials, comment for a chance at our giveaway and move on! So I will just take a quick second to say, the reason this is so dear to my heart as the owner of Inspired Stamps, is because my husband has been a US Army soldier since we were married 25 years ago this year (making our family a military family for a very long time)! I so appreciate what OWH does in sending our soldiers cards that we all make to encourage them and help keep them in touch with their loved ones! What a wonderful service!!
I did a very QUICK tutorial (and several of our Design Team members have signed up for the blog hop too, so you'll see more Inspired Stamps as you continue hopping!) on how to color and cut out a character stamp to give it dimension!
Here is a quick coloring guide for 3 of our best-selling military stamp sets first:
Military Soldier (3"x4"), HLO:Soldier Boy (2"x3"), and HLO: Sailor (2"x3")
Here is what I did to make my card:
I started by stamping the Inspired Stamp: His Little Ones: Soldier Boy twice. Then I colored using Copics and cut out the pieces I wanted to 'pop' in dimension:
I also use a black marker around the edges of each piece to make it look better:
Here is the OWH card sketch I used followed by my card:
