Have you seen these adorable Yeti stamps? I absolutely love this new Yeti to Party stamp set from Stampin' Up!® I was so excited to pull it out and start playing with it, and I knew I wanted to combine it with my favorite easy watercolor technique using my clear block, an ink pad, and a Stampin' Spritzer.
You can see exactly how to do this simple water color technique in my video tutorial. Plus, I show how I made this adorable Yeti card. You'll find the supply list for these cards below.
Just a little heads up, this fun stamp set is going to be featured for my November online card class. I'll have more details on that later this fall.
Plus, coming in September, you can get dies to match these stamps. They are only available while supplies last and for the month of September. If everyone loves this set as much as I do, I'm sure they are going to go quickly! You can get them with the stamps as a bundle for a 10% discount or if you already have the stamps, you'll be able to get just the dies. Don't want to wait for the matching dies? Join the On Y Go! Stamping team today and add this bundle to your starter kit.
Here is another oldie, but a goodie rubber stamping technique - Cracked Glass. This card making technique creates the look of art behind vintage broken glass. It's not super quick, but it's not hard. It just involves a lot of head embossing!
If you missed my Stamp with Me Tuesday live video where I shared this card making technique, check out the replay. You can see all the embossing and cracking.
I also have a free downloadable quick reference guide for this technique below. Click on the read more link to find it.
For the broken glass technique, start by stamping an image and coloring if needed. My samples use the Ranunculus Romance stamp set and the Simply Succulents stamp set.
Then, open up your Versamark ink pad and lay the cardstock on top. Push down and move the cardstock around to get Versamark all over the front of the cardstock. Add clear embossing powder, tap off, and heat set with your heat tool. Do this a second time.

I love two-step stamping because you get multiple stamps for one image making it easy to make multi-colored images. But, what do you do if you have just one stamp for an image, like the Wonderful World stamps from Stampin' Up!®, and you'd like to make it multi-colored? Pull out your markers!
For this rubber stamping technique, you'll need to use water-based markers - not alcohol markers. Choose the colors you want to use. Color directly on your stamp in the area that you want each color. "Huff" on the stamp - blow some air on it - to help re-wet it, then stamp on your paper. You'll get a beautiful multi-colored image that is easy to create!
If you'd like to see this technique in action and get more tips, be sure to watch the replay of my YouTube Live where I shared how to make a simple card using this easy card making technique.
I have more samples for you below and the complete supply list. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
This double pocket fun fold card is so quick and easy to make! It uses an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of patterned paper and has two pockets in the front to tuck messages, gift cards, candy, or another small surprise.
If you missed this week's Stamp with Me Tuesday, you'll want to watch the replay to see exactly how to do this fold. It's easy, but a little hard to explain without showing it, ya know?
I have a free downloadable quick reference guide (i.e. card making tutorial) for this fun fold card below. So be sure to click Read More to find it. And I have more photos of all of the card samples which you won't want to miss.
To create this fun fold card, start by scoring each side in the middle (at 5 1/2" and 4 1/4"). Then, lay the patterned paper in front of you vertically. Cut the left score line to the center. That's all the cutting and scoring. The rest is folding and a little bit of adhesive. Don't worry, if you're confused already, I go through it step by step in the video and I have a diagram in the tutorial.
