Damask delights - Project ideas

Hello! ^__^

Having Monday blues? Well I hope this post brightens your day and cheers you up because today I have project ideas! Yeah, something for everybody!

I'm Halak and today's post features the super pretty and versatile Damask stamp set which is a part of March 2016 stamp release by Peek-a-boo Designs (PABD).

Before we get on with projects, here's the complete list of stamps and card stock that I used :

Stamps :
1. Damask 
2. Lily Hope and,
3. Bold You 

Cardstock :
1. Black (For ATC base)
2. White Sand Texture (For Card base)

This card that you see above is Project #1.

I love the fact that the damask set has solid images, (I am a very lazy colorist) and it takes ink really well.
You must have seen the stunning post by our DT member Vijaylaxmi, wherein she made a beautiful pattern paper using the damask set.

Now I'm going to go through a few other fun ways to use this set.

In this project, I wanted a mixed damask look because... come on..
asymmetrical is sometimes super fun!

So I stamped a mixed bunch of damask designs in pale pink dye ink, added a sentiment from Lily Hope set and some butterfly punch-outs + sequins.

You can see the close-up of the mix damask designs in pale pink ink here :

Crisp and gorgeous impression! Gotta love that!

By now the symmetry lovers must be going like whaaat...

I have a project idea just for you guys...

Boom! Check out this envelope :

Project #2

A damask shape, inked up and stamped across the edge of the envelope for a border.

Added some rhinestones and pearls with a healthy splash of glitter (you can use wink of stella / stickles / sparkle as a substitute) and there you have it!

One classy envelope with the lace effect going on because of that damask... trust me, the recipient will be mighty impressed.

So, as you can see, this set looks great with random damask shapes stamped as abstract or a single damask shape stamped in sync.

Close up :

What after symmetry, you ask?

Let's go with a curve!

Project #3

This mixed-media style ATC has that gorgeous damask curve running through it which makes it very striking to look at.

How did I do this?

Simple. Took my round box lid in which I store my crafting tools, and with that drew a curve lightly onto stenciled background.

Mounted damask stamp onto block, inked and stamped the little damask away.

Once the curve was done, I erased the line.

Here's a better look at it :

The sentiment for this ATC is from the Bold You stamp set.

Bonus Tip :

What else can you do with damask?

I am thinking shapes, squares, rectangles, zig-zags etc.

Go make a crazy colorful mandala using this and use your geometry box to make concentric circles as guides for stamping!

Fun, right? :D

So you see, the only limitation is your imagination! Get this set, sit with some inks and get crafting! No other stress buster like it!

Hope you liked my post and thank you so much for stopping by! :) I'd love to know what you think! *Hugs*
