Elle's Studio: Product Spotlight: My Star Stamp & Die Set


Hi Friends! 

Welcome back for more Elle's Studio inspiration!

Today I am shining the product spotlight on the amazing My Star Stamp & coordinating Die Set! 

So awesome, right?
It's no secret that I love to get inky, but this stamp and die set really has my heart! 

For today's post I wanted to share a few different ways you can use this awesome set in your story telling & memory keeping - all in the one layout! 

Enough, said! Here's what I created, 


Wow! So bright & fun for my two superstars!

Other: Bazzill - Smooth White Cardstock, Stamping inks - black, aqua, pink, dark blue & orange. 

This really is a happy & joyful page! Let's take a better look at it....

Gosh, so many beautiful details and layers created with the one stamp & die! My Star is really somethin'! 
Here's a few simple ideas on how I incorporated the My Star Stamp & Die;

1. Use them as intended! Stamp & die cut til you heart's content! 
Tip: Choose a color scheme that flatters your photo/s and emanates 'the feel' of your story. 

2. Use the My Star Die with your paper scraps -even the smallest pieces can be cut into tiny stars!
Tip: Color match inked and pattern paper die cuts to create a tone on tone effect, for a more layered and detailed look.

3. Use the negative die cut space as a stencil, template or mask! I used gel pens for my example, but this would also work well with an ink blending tool or texture paste too!
Tip: Paper stencils don't last long, so replace them regularly or, if using wet media, die cut with a sturdier material like acetate or card.

4. Create more interest by stamping the My Star Stamp as a base to layer onto!
Tip: Use the Elle's Studio Acrylic Stamp Blocks for greater control & precision. I used the Elle's Studio Acrylic Stamp Block - 3 x 4inches for my layout. 

5. Mix and match different sized stars and layer them onto one another for greater effect!
Tip: Mixing colors or patterns will also make the stars 'pop'!

6. Use repeat stamped sentiments to add emphasis to both photo & embellishment clusters!
Tip: Black stamping ink is easier to see and read, and it can also create balance by cutting through a colorful page!

7. Use the My Star Stamp to decorate other embellishments! I used the tiny open star over the Joyful Chipboard Sticker title, 'Twinkle' to really make it shine!
Tip: Always test the quality of stamping inks on the surface they are intended for first, before applying to embellishments. Lesser quality inks bleed when applied to veneers & chipboards. 

So bright, so beautiful & tons of fun to create! The My Star Stamp & Die are definitely in my 'Craft Essentials' kit!
I hope you feel inspired by my project, & are able to get creating today!
