52 Weeks of Wonder

Get Fantastic Curves

"Who doesn’t adore lovely curves? We throw curves, watch curve balls, master learning curves, and sometimes find ourselves ahead of the curve. Today we’ll focus on a creative curve—adding shape to a My Acrylix stamp, something not even possible with a wood-mounted stamp! Sentiments that are designed to be stamped straight can easily be curved to match the contour of the paper.

Whether you are accenting cards or adorning the curves of a great scrapbook layout, stamps make the perfect addition.

To show off the curves in your artwork, place a clear block (that is slightly larger than the image you wish to stamp with) on top of the paper where the image will be placed.  Next, place the stamp image on the clear block by curving it as you lay it down. Follow the curve of the paper.

Once the stamp is in place, ink the image and stamp it with perfect placement.  With a little practice, you’ll soon find that it’s easy to embrace your curves—both in your life and in your artwork!"
