StampinByHannah Make It Monday Quick and Easy Men’s Card using Truly Tailored from Stampin’ Up!
I have a quick and easy card for you today. One of the ways that I maintain my crafty mojo is by CASing (Copy and Selectively Edit!) and today I have CASE’d the Stampin’ Up! catalogue. The catalogue actually used to be called an idea book… and that is exactly how I use it. My catalogue is constantly in use, its always open on either my crafty desk or my office one, looking for ideas.
Ok, so this card uses Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Write Markers to selectively colour the sentiment stamp. I LOVE doing this, and have done it quite a bit recently. There are a couple of things to remember when you’re stamping with Stampin’ Write Markers
- Use the side of the brush tip to colour your stamp
- Use the lightest colour of marker first, and work to the darkest (particularly if your colouring a stamp where the ink colours will touch) to avoid your dark inks contaminating your lighter markers
- Get plenty of ink onto your stamp; colour each part of the image several times, and colour in different directions to prevent a streaky looking stamped image
- Stampin’ Write Markers use the same ink as your Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink Pads and are water-based, so the ink WILL dry on your stamp. Re-activate your ink before you stamp by breathing on it.
