Fall Crafting with Laura K. Bray Stamps!
Ahhh, it’s Fall here in Vermont and the trees and weather are just gorgeous!
If you know me, you know I have a leaf obsession! I adore creating and painting leaves. I LOVE fall, it’s my absolute favorite season.
So when I was asked to do a guest designer post by Laura K. Bray I was so excited to see if I could create something interesting with her stamps in line with fall!
Waa-laa!!! I made hand painted magnets!
These make great gifts for the upcoming holiday gift giving season! It only takes a few steps and minimal supplies to create a very unique gift!
Here’s a quick tutorial to make your own set!
- Laura K. Bray’s “Tea in the Garden Stamp set” Click here to order
- Dried leaves- press for a few days in a book or in a few paper towels
- Ink pads
- Craft paints
- Heavy duty scissors or XActo knife
- Paint pens (optional)
- Paint brush
- Glue gun
You’ll need to use heavy duty scissors or XActo knife to cut out these stamps. Once you have them cut, use a clear acrylic block to place stamp on.
Choose your dried leaf, ink pad color and stamp your design on the leaf!
I also decided to try stamping over a leaf I had painted with 1st layer of color, which this method works well too!
For this step; use your acrylic paint to cover the base layer of the leaf and let fully dry before stamping your design on.
Step 3: after stamping the desired design on, I went back over it with a sharpie pen to make it easier to see the fine lines when painting.
Filling your leaf in with color!
I did a few methods for this by using paint pens and acrylic paint. Filling in and around the designs with color.
Step 5: After your leaves are fully dry its time to glue your magnets on!
Here ya go! These are so easy and fun to create! Order your set of stamps so you can get creating now! Click here to Order from Laura K. Bray
