I’m showcasing this “oldie but goodie” technique at class this month. Several customers have asked for a refresher and I have some newbies who will be learning for the first time.
I used our Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes (131527) for my base. Sometimes I want to give a little note but don’t want to write a ton; can you relate? T Measuring 5″ x 3-1/2″, these little cards are the perfect solution.
I wanted a small layer for a little extra color; used Crisp canteloupe cardstock, cut 1/8″ smaller than notecard.
The top layer is Whisper White, cut 1/8″ less than the Canteloupe layer. I used the flower from the Blooming with Kindness Kindness Stamp Set (wood – 131961, clear – 126422). I stamped with Crisp Canteloupe Classic Ink (131176), then used a Blender Pen (102845) to take the ink off the stem and color using a Pear Pizazz Stampin’ Write Marker (131266). Using a Blender Pen is a great way to remove color from an inked stamp, whether to fix a mistake or to create a multi-colored stamped image. The “thinking of you” is from Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set (wood – 128748, clear – 127802).
Once you have stamped the image, take a Stampin’ Glue Stick (130654) and coat the top. ) You can also use spray adhesive found at any craft store, but the glue stick is cheaper and not as messy). The take a USED dryer sheet and flatten over the top, making sure edges are stuck down well. You can trim off excess or wrap around and stick down on back. Pour Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on top and shake off excess. Use glue stick to adhere to front of card and you’re done!
