Scallop Blossoms and Stamping with a Paint Dabber


Hi Everyone,

A card with no Copic colouring!!  This card has lots of beautiful shimmer.  Gotta love those distress inks and a bit of perfect pearl mist.  I love this stamp too.  I think this technique would be really great for making Christmas cards too.

Supplies List

Paper Trimmer, Scissors, Double sided tape, Ribbon, Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire and Broken China, Foam Blending Tool, Stamps – Scallop Blossoms by Hero Arts, Flowing Birthday by Stamp It , Paper – Bazzill card, white cardstock, silver paper,  Pearl Buckle for ribbon, Mini Mister by Ranger, Perfect Pearls by Ranger, Water, Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber – Pearl, Heat Gun


I used my paint dabber to cover the Scallop Blossoms stamp with paint.  You can just dab it on and you get a lovely textured look or you can do what I did which was drag the paint dabber in vertical lines to give a bit of a faux woodgrain type look.  I then stamped onto ordinary white card and dried the paint with my heat gun.  You need to make sure you clean the stamp pretty much straight away when you are stamping with paint.  I then applied chipped sapphire and broken china distress ink over the paint with my foam blending tool.  I then spritzed over it with a mist (made up of water and perfect pearls powder that you can mix up yourself or you can just buy the mist already mixed up).  I then heated it again with my heat gun or you can just leave it to dry.  I then trimmed the paper to size and used the silver paper to mat behind it.   I adhered the pieces to the card base using double sided tape.  Then I used some beautiful blue ribbon, looped it through the pearl buckle and finished with a bow.  Lastly I stamped the flowing birthday stamp using chipped sapphire ink.  I really like this birthday stamp too as it is a really nice size for cards.

Until next time,
