Beginner Guide: Stamp & Drawing Technique


by Roni Johnson

Sometimes when you’re just starting out stamping you don’t want to have to purchase a bunch of supplies when you’re not sure if you’ll like it or not. Well today I have a really fun and easy technique that will add some spice to your cards and all you need besides stamps, ink, and paper is a pen and a ruler and you don’t even really need a ruler – it can be any straight edge.

What are we going to be doing with the pen…making doodles! It’s really easy and I’ll bet you’ve been practicing this for years without even realizing it. Let’s go!

Memento Marker in Tuxedo Black

Stampin Up Cardstock

Directions

Place the “orange blossum” stamp onto an acrylic block (you can skip this if you have wood mounted stamp). Pounce VersaFine Clair in Nocturne over the stamp. Press the inked stamp onto the paper.

Now for the doodles…we’re going to start out with a really basic line doodle frame. First determine where you want your border. I went with ¼” for this example. So line up your ruler (I find that clear rulers are easier to work with) and make a dot at the ¼” mark in all 4 corners with a pencil.

Now you’re going to take a marker, in this case, I’m using the Tuxedo Black Memento Dual Tip Marker to doodle with. It has 2 tips – a brush type marker tip and the other end is like a pen so you can write with it too.

Align the ruler with your pencil dots, using the pen tip; draw a line from dot to dot. Easy Peasy right?

You can choose to stop right there or you can go back and add a few more doodles like these zig-zag lines.

From here you can mount the card on a card base or leave it as a postcard style, color in the oranges, leaves and add a sentiment for whatever occasion fits. As you can see in the first photo — you can apply this technique to several card designs!

Learn How to Stamp Layered Tropical Themes with Memento Ink

For today’s card, I used a few Memento Inks to stamp the different shades of foliage and the flamingos from a Hampton Art Tropical stamp set. For the sentiment “With Love, and Prayers”, I used Versafine Clair ink. I took a stamp set which had few layers and created the perfect Tropical theme using first and second generation stamping.

This mixed media paper doll panel was so fun to make. I used Rinea foil, Creative Medium, foam tape and Tsukineko inks in this crafting project. Rinea foiled paper works beautifully with 3D embossing folders and makes a great foundation for the girls stamped in VersaFine Clair inks. Enjoy!
