Can you see the bird’s soft, rounded belly? Its another quick & easy stamping technique day!
Isn’t it fun to play around with different looks?
I love this bird from A Happy Thing and wondered how he would look with a rounded belly.
To make this just required a stylus and a piercing mat.
All of the details are shown in the video tutorial below.
I’m not sure how well this technique shows up on camera, so here is a different view.
I’ve used this technique on teddy bears to give them that huggable look and feel.
What other images can you think of that would work well with this technique?
Stamping Technique to Add Dimension to Your Handmade Cards!
I would love to see what you do with this technique … by the way, there are only seven more days to get the A Happy Thing stamp set! It is one of the FREE choices during Sale-a-bration. Place a $50 order and you can get this set for FREE!
Giving a set of monogrammed note cards made with the Sophisticated Serifs stamp set is both personal and classy!
I received this set as a gift from Christine Pierce and I just love it!
What a great wedding gift this would make. In fact, it could become your personal trademark for wedding or shower gifts! The new couple could use them as thank you cards.
The set that Christine made with the layer of black is great for a masculine look. How about celebrating a new job – or job hunting – for that graduate? These cards have a nice professional look to them.
If you look at the sample in the Occasions Catalog on page 22, you will see a softer look with the letters done in green and framed with the tiny flowers included in this set. (Have you picked up that catalog lately?)
The season of weddings and graduations will be here before we know it! What better time than now to get prepared?
And remember these four new choices for your Sale-a-bration Freebie too! Yesterday I highlighted the Sheer Perfection Vellum yesterday with four ways to color it. Each day this week I will highlighting a different choice, so stay tuned!
Look at this fabulous new Sheer Perfection Vellum SU! just introduced today! Its another FREE Sale-a-bration Choice!
Aren’t those fabulous designs? I thought it would be fun to show several ways to color this vellum.
There is a video tutorial below that shows how to do all four techniques. Its actually four minutes long – very long by my standards, but I guess one minute for each technique isn’t really all that long! Here are the four techniques:
1. Use a brayer with a SU! Ink Pad to color in the back side of the paper.
2. Use Stampin’ Writers to color the back side of the paper.
3. Use sponges with the SU! Ink Pads to color the back side of the paper.
4. Brayer the back side of the paper. Then use a stylus on the backside to create a puffed out, white look on the flowers.
