Hi everyone! The Clearly Kelly inspiration continues as we welcome the oh-so-talented Geralyn Sy to the blog today. We're excited to share two food and travel themed projects she created with the new Clearly Kelly stamps shown below. (Each of these clear sets measure 3" x 4" so they're perfectly portable!)
Here's Geralyn with more... "Kelly's food-themed stamps were perfect for all the delicious eats I had in Japan! To create one of my filler cards, I stamped 'food coma' several times on a 3x4 card to create a repeating pattern. Then I used a white pen to color in a pair of the stamped words to make it stand out. On another filler card, I stamped the 'big bite' circle on a 2" circle. Since there was a lot of white space around the stamped image, I used Kelly's alpha stamps around the circle to stamp the name of the place I visited. It adds a fun and bold pop of color to my spread."
Supplies: Stamps - CL814 Kelly's Food Coma (clear), CL818 Kelly's Take Note (clear), CL821 Kelly's Outline Letters (clear); Inks - Versafine, Hero Arts, Studio Calico; Patterned paper - Studio Calico, Crate Paper; Printables - In a Creative Bubble; Pen - Uniball, Muji "I decided to use Kelly's awesome new stamps for a travel themed spread. I stamped directly on a few of my photos and created the title on a 3x4 card using the alpha stamps. The layered look is really fun to do with various colors of inks. I also stamped 'this is seriously cool' diagonally with yellow ink on a striped patterned paper to create a tone-on-tone look. To emphasize one of the phrases, I stamped it in black for some contrast. Kelly's stamps are so versatile while I used them for this travel spread here, the phrases work well for everyday pages too - I really love that about them!"
