Whew! We combined the second and third classes to cover six techniques in two hours. All of the instructions/tutorials I used are available on Splitcoaststampers. Here’s the card we made using the Magic Snowflake Technique. Since it is almost summer, I chose not to do an actual snowflake image.
Stamps: Doodle This
Ink: Barely Banana, Pretty In Pink, Apricot Appeal, and Regal Rose reinkers, Whisper White Craft Ink
Paper: Whisper White, Barely Banana, Regal Rose
Accessories: Regal Rose 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon, white embossing powder, embossing buddy
Misc: 91% volume rubbing alcohol, cotton balls, heat gun
This technique is so easy and it really is like magic! Make sure that you rub the embossing buddy on the cardstock before stamping. It really makes a big difference, so if you don’t have one, you may want to get one. That is tool is *so* worth the $5 you’ll spend on it! I also really love this color combination for this technique, as well as the Doodle This set. I haven’t pulled that one out for quite a while, so it was nice to give it some love.
Here is another technique we did in class. It is called Emerging Color.
Ink: So Saffron, Groovy Guava, Rose Red, Ruby Red, Versamark
Paper: Rose Red, Whisper White, So Saffron
Accessories: Clear embossing powder
This is another technique that is like magic. It was so fun to break out my brayer and actually get some ink on it! If you haven’t inked yours up lately (or ever), I challenge you to do so! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your creations so that I can check them out.
