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.
I LOVE patterned paper! Like, really, really love patterned paper. It's just so pretty. It's like going to a fabric store. I think I would be a quilter if I had more patience and could commit to projects that take a lot of time. I love the patterns and combining patterns, but the sewing, not so much. But patterned paper! It's all the gorgeousness of the prints that I can use to make quick and easy cards.
It's so hard to throw scraps of beautiful paper away, so I'm always looking for new ideas to use them. This card design is so quick and easy to pull together and a great way to use scraps of patterned paper or scrapbooking paper.
We made this card for this week's Mystery Stamping event. You'll find the basic dimensions by clicking read more, a free downloadable quick reference guide with the card sketch, and the complete supply lists for all of these cards. You can also watch the replay from this week's Mystery Stamping YouTube live if you'd like to hear more about each card.
For this week's Stamp with Me Tuesday, we did this cool faux torn paper technique using Masking Paper and Blending Brushes. It is so easy to do and works fabulously with a variety of stamps! I used the Hello Ladybug, Botanical Layers, Ranunculus Romance, and Best Butterflies stamp sets from Stampin' Up!®
Start by tearing masking paper. Adhere to your cardstock and blend over the edge with a light-colored ink. Stamp images. Remove the masking paper and finish your card as you'd like. These are great for Simple Stamping or SIP cards (stamps, ink, & paper).
All of the supply lists and more photos are below, so be sure to hit the read more button.
Like every Tuesday, I have a free downloadable quick-reference guide for this technique. They are formatted so that you can punch them and store them in a 3-ring binder to create a reference book for yourself filled with techniques, fun folds, and sketches.
Here is a super easy card making technique that creates a unique look - the Retiform Technique! Be sure to read all the way through this post to see more samples and get the FREE quick-reference guide.
I made these sample cards with the Ranunculus Romance, Simply Fabulous, Botanical Layers, and Quiet Meadow stamp sets from Stampin' Up!®
All you need are stamps, ink, cardstock, sticky notes, and some sort of blending tool like a blending brush, sponge, or dauber. Create two lines down the card with the sticky notes leaving the section between them open. Then, blend ink at the edges. Repeat going the opposite direction. Then, replace the sticky notes and stamp in the different sections.
To see exactly how easy it is to do, watch this week's video tutorial. Every Tuesday night is stamp with me Tuesday. The first Tuesday of the month always features a technique. I hope you'll join me for the next stamp with me Tuesday at 8pm Eastern on YouTube or in the On Y Go! Stamping Facebook Group!
