Are you enjoying and having lots of fun with some of the free
I am, and I'm particularly loving creating lots of variety with the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set.
Over the next couple of weeks I'll be showing you a variety of ways to use this set and today we are starting simple with the Stamping Off Technique.
This is the image I'm using. It is one of the new Distinktive stamp range from Stampin' Up! - very detailed and absolutely gorgeous.
Isn't it stunning? I've used Always Artichoke ink for this image.
The technique I used for the card is "Stamping Off" - an easy technique that only requires you to stamp the image on a piece of scrap paper before stamping onto your card front - thus giving you a lighter tone of the colour you are using.
I have stamped the entire card base using the Stamping Off technique and then stamped a strip of card stock in full strength ink. This creates a lovely soft background for your focal point.
The completed card. I stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock and matted that onto a Very Vanilla Thick card stock base. Some Gold Glimmer paper was used along with some retired gold and vanilla Stampin' Up! ribbon. Linen Thread would look lovely if you don't have suitable ribbon.
This card is very quick to make and looks great in so many of the Stampin' Up! Classic Ink colours. Give it a try!
