Ink Smooshing Technique & A Little Wild

Ink Smooshing Technique

Hello Friends,

Today, I going to share a simple Card Making Technique called Ink Smooshing and the A Little Wild Stamp set.  I love cute animal stamps, but the A Little Wild stamp set does double duty because it shares the backside too.  You can cut them out together to make adorable tags or cut them apart and use them separately.


Ink Smooshing Technique

 

For this technique I smooshed Melon Mambo and Night of Navy Ink onto my Teflon Craft mat and spritzed with water.  Then, I laid my glossy card stock face down on the ink and smooshed.  Then I spritzed again and I dried with a heat tool to move the ink around a bit.  Here are 2 very different looks with the same Technique.


A Little Wild Stampin' Up! Card Idea

For this first card, I completely covered my glossy  card stock.  I dried the first layer, then went back and added a bit more Melon Mambo Ink.

For the second Smooshed Ink Technique card, I went light on the ink for a completely different look.  Which look do you like best?

Here's a close up of the smooshing technique.  You will multiple Ink pads, a water spritzer and glossy paper.  For this card I used the gorgeous Springtime Foil paper which is free during Sale-a-bration (now through March 31, 30218) with a $50 purchase. 

 Splitcoast Stampers Color ChallengeFor this week's Splitcoast Stampers Color challenge, Barb chose Melon Mambo, Night o Navy and Tangerine Tango.  It really is a sharp color combo.  And for dessert add a little bling.   Is used the Melon Mambo and Night of Navy for my Ink Smooshing Technique and I colored the Lion's mane Tangerine Tango.  For Bling, I used the Springtime Foil Paper and my Wink of Stella Pen for my lion's mane.

Two-Toned Stamping Technique & Detailed Die Cut Tips

Bold Butterfly Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Good Monday Morning,

Here's a quick and simple card that we recently made at a team meeting using the Ready to Pop stamp set, the Bold Butterflies dies and the Leaf Punch.  Scroll down to see the Two-Toned Stamping Technique explained.  It's really quite simple.  


Two-Toned Stamping Technique

Hint:  When die cutting with detailed dies such as the Bold Butterfly dies use the Precision Base Plate.  Your little pieces will pop right out.  See the video below to see how it works.

 

 
Detailed dies are great, but sometimes it's hard to make all of the fine cuts crisp and sharp. Problem solved! The Precision Base Plate adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich, making working with detailed dies a dream.
 

Two-Toned Stamping Technique

Love the Two-Tone Stamping Technique with the Stamparatus.  For today's card, I am stamping with the Ready to Pop stamp set and Berry Burst Ink.  To get the light and dark look with just one ink.  I simply stamped, then stamped again without reinking.  Then, I repeated the  whole process once more to get the alternating dark and light stamped images.  The hinged system of the Stamparatus makes this technique super simple to do.

We Must Celebrate Ombre Awesome Card

We Must Celebrate Stampin' Up!

 Hello Friends,

Today's card is for my son, Jonathan, who is the later stages of his Doctorate Program.  The back story is that he has been signing all his Christmas tags and such "from Awesome" since he was a teenager and continues to this day, so he will appreciate the ombre awesomes. 

The woodland animals are from the adorable We Must Celebrate stamp set.  I colored each with Stampin' Blends, then fussy cut them and stacked them up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

We Must Celebrate Stampin' Up!

Ombre Technique

Getting the Ombre Look with the "awesome" stamp was quite easy with the Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool.  The first one was stamped full strength with Night of Navy Ink.   Each time I stamped the word awesome, it was a bit lighter and it was lined up perfectly thanks to the hinged system of the Stamparatus.

I wanted to make the last awesome shine, so stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Emboss Powder.
