In this video, I’m sharing how to use stencils along with a few inks to create gorgeous backgrounds wrapped in Vellum and heat embossed with inspirational quotes. I’ve used the background in two ways: to create a handmade card and framed. Enjoy!
Today I am sharing how I am planning out my year month by month using stamps and various inks. Using my wooden number stamps to add the dates to each month and I am also showing you how I am creating inspirational words for each month as a reminder of my goals for the year. I incorporate Gold as an accent to add some shine to my planner pages too.
Using Celebration Themed stamps along with VersaMark Dazzle and Delicata Golden Glitz ink pads make a New Years Card. I will be making several of these cards to send to friends as well as co-workers to welcome in the New Year.
Kissing Technique is an easy way to combine your stamps and create unique designs for your stamping projects. Just select one solid design and combine it with another pattern and create different layouts.
Select the stamps that you want to use and the colors of the ink. Use a light color for the solid image and dark color for the textured or detailed image. Place the stamps over different acrylic blocks and ink well with the corresponding ink. Here I selected a heart stamp and inked it with Memento in Lulu Lavender. Then I choose a stripe stamp and inked it with Memento in Grape Jelly.
Place one stamp over the other, touching the inked sides. You will notice how the stripe image is transferred into the solid heart image. When you are using a waterbased ink like Memento this transfer will happen very smoothly.
If you decide to use a dark color for the solid image, don’t apply ink to the detailed image, just kiss them and you will see how it take off the color from the solid stamp. Stamp the image over your card stock layer and finalize your card stamping a coordinating sentiment.
