I'm here today with two layouts that I created using the new Pinkfresh Studio collections, Escape the Ordinary and Boys Fort. I shared these on the Pinkfresh Studio blog yesterday and for these two layouts, I used some subtle stamping techniques to enhance my design, so let's check them out!
First up, I chose a photo of me and my hubby from a recent weekend getaway trip and layered a couple of 6x6 paper pad pieces from the Escape the Ordinary collection behind it.
Since the photo was taken on the sky deck of our hotel, I wanted to emulate that "high above the rest" feeling on my layout, so I used the cloud outline stamp (also from the Escape the Ordinary collection) to create an added image on the "Search" patterned paper.
I trimmed the patterned paper piece down a bit and then layered it onto the "Wander" piece of patterned paper from the collection so the blue would help make the colors in my photo pop.
I layered embellishments from the Escape the Ordinary collection around my photo and fussy-cut a few images out of the Boys Fort collection patterned paper piece, "Game On". I love how the studio puff stickers look next to the gold foiled ephemera pieces. They add just the right amount of dimension and offer a fun texture to my page.
For this next layout, I chose the "Observe" patterned paper piece from the Escape the Ordinary collection and cut it at an angle so I could layer it on top of a piece of white cardstock. I also layered a piece of the "Chase" patterned paper and the other side of the "Observe" paper to fill in the gaps and to tone down the pattern a bit.
I used the single star images from the Escape the Ordinary stamp set and after I placed the photos of me and my son taking silly selfies, I stamped around the page to help draw the eye around it.
I also added a few of the stars from the gold foiled ephemera pack and used some foam dimensional adhesive to elevate them above the stamped image. I chose a few of the stitched hearts from the Escape the Ordinary collection and layered them around my page as well for an added shape.
Stamping doesn't have to overwhelming or hard to do! Even the smallest stamped images can make a big impact on your page! I hope I've given you some subtle stamping inspiration to use on your next project...thanks so much for joining me today!
