Stamping with Stampendous and Jewelry Resin


 Welcome to a week of posts which will feature 
Stampendous! products and Jewelry Resin!
Today I will show you how I utilized some of the fabulous clear stamps in the Stampendous! catalog so that I could make a whole group on interesting bezels and bottle caps!
I love rubber stamping and have taught many Rubber Stamping 101 classes!  
In order to stamp and then use paper images which will then be encased in resin I chose to stamp with a black permanent ink pad.
(To get links to the Stampendous products I am using you can see everything on Sunday's blog post.)
 I then cut and glued my images into several different types of bezels.
 I sealed all my paper images with three painted layers of Mod Podge.  Each time I applied a coating I waited several hours before I painted on the next layer.
 I applied some vinyl stickers to my images.
 Stampendous has some amazing sticker sheets in their catalog too!
 I added some glue in places so that glitter would have a place to cling.
 I poured glitter into the whole cap and when my glue was dry I brushed away the excess glitter.
 I added sequins and some paint dots to a few bezels.
 In a few cases I poured resin a second time.  This allowed me to use gel markers on the first layer which was encased in a top coat of resin.
 I just added a few highlights to the black and white bezels.
 My finished bezels look great!
 I will probably create a necklace with this grouping.  Don't you love the glitter borders?
 My tower was hard to photograph....it looks super in person.
 The bottle caps look layered and my extra layer of resin created a nice dome.
 The gel marker is very subtle but a fun addition to these pendants.
 I already know what I am doing with one of the bottle caps.
 This pendant was immediately wearable too!

I hope you have a chance to add some rubber stamping to your resin projects.

There is so much more to show you this week!
