My Artisan Instagram Tip: Ink Smooching

Fable Friends Stamp Set byStampin' Up! Coastal Cabana Ink Smooching by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Fable Friends Stamp Set!  Such a cute collection of critters that are fun and easy to color.  

As part of the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Artisan Design Team, we are asked (and honored) to supply a tip to fellow stampers that is shared on Instagram by @stampinup.  My first tip was published back in February and I shared how you can use punches to create notches to hold twine and thread.  You can see that post here

Fable Friends Stamp Set byStampin' Up! Coastal Cabana Ink Smooching by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.

Cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 x 4 1/2″.  Smooch with Coastal Cabana Classic Ink.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

SMOOCHING INSTRUCTIONS:  Cut a Window Sheet down to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 or similar size.  Take the edge of a Classic Ink Pad and press it onto the Window Sheet multiple times, criss-crossing the edge to get decent ink coverage.  Use a Stampin’ Spritzer to apply three pumps of water onto the Classic Ink on the Window Sheet.  Carefully flip it over and gently apply to the piece of Shimmery White Cardstock (NOTE: You must use Shimmery White to get the effects shown). Pick it up off the Shimmery White and apply it again (in a different area) until the desired coverage is

obtained.  Set aside and let dry completely.

 

Use the Daisy Punch to crop two daisies of Vellum Cardstock.  Adhere together (alternating petals) and to the smooched cardstock with Mini Glue Dots.  

Cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 5/8″ x 3 1/2″.  Rub with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the sentiment (Fable Friends) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the squirrel image (Fable Friends Stamp Set) in Jet Black Stāzon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Inks:  Soft Suede (squirrel and daisy center), Coastal Cabana (sailor jacket), Old Olive (daisy leaf/stem), Crushed Curry (daisy petals).  Snip with a Paper Snips and adhere to the strip of Coastal Cabana with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add three Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins as shown.

Here is my tip that was published on Instagram by Stampin’ Up! on May 21st:  

• @stampinup From #ArtisanDesignTeam member Stesha Bloodhart (@stampinhoot):
“Create a quick but gorgeous smooched background using a Classic Ink Pad, Window Sheet, Shimmery White Cardstock & a Stampin’ Spritzer.” Swipe left to see! #ADTtipsandtricks#stampinup #handmadecards#papercraft #crafting #cardmaking#card #watercolortechnique#watercolorwash

Fable Friends Stamp Set byStampin' Up! Coastal Cabana Ink Smooching by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The smooching technique is so simple and every background turns out different. You can add multiple colors of ink, add more ink for depth, or less for a softer feel.  The possibilities are endless!  Play, play, play and you will get a result that you love.

lilypad lake stamp set by stampin' up! card by stesha bloodhart, stampin' hoot
  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Using an Aqua Painter, create a watercolor wash background on a piece of Watercolor Paper.  I used Classic Inks:  Sahara Sand, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, & Crushed Curry. After the ink dries, crop out the background using a Big Shot and the largest label die from the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies.  Adhere to the center of the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x  5 1/2″.  Crop the frame using the same Stitched Seasons Framelit Die.  Adhere to the card base with Foam Adhesive Strips.
  4. Stamp the following images onto Shimmery White Cardstock using Stazon Ink:  Sun, Sail Boats, Lilypads, Crane. Crop with a Big Shot and the coordinating dies from the Lakeside Framelits Dies. Also, crop two grass die cuts of Shimmery White Cardstock.
  5. Color the images with an Aqua Painter.  Crane: Smoky Slate, Grass: Old Olive & Pear Pizzazz, Lilypad: Petal Pink, Old Olive, & Pear Pizzazz, Sail Boats:  Smoky Slate & Coastal Cabana, Sun: Crushed Curry & Mango Melody
  6. Adhere all images with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
