#tgifc152 Technique Time: Marker to Stamp
Happy Friday! TGIFC152
It’s Friday and time for a Technique! This month’s technique is the Marker Direct to Stamp Technique. I do believe that this is the very first technique I learned when I was introduced to the world of stamping and paper crafting. This is such an easy technique but it can definitely add a wow factor to your projects.
- With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 11″. Score and fold at 5 1/2″
- Cut a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock to 5 3/8 x 5 3/8″. Adhere with Snail Adhesive.
- Cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″. Adhere with Snail Adhesive.
- Cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″.
- Cut 6″ of each: Bermuda Bay Stitched Satin Ribbon & Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon. Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive.
- Add color to the Definitely Dahlia Stamp with a Stampin’ Write Markers, using the brush end. I colored the inner part of the flower with Lemon Lime Twist and the outer part with Bermuda Bay.
- Huff on the stamp several times to moisten the ink, then stamp on Shimmery White Cardstock.
- Crop the Happy Birthday Image 3 times (Shimmery White, Basic Black, and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock) by running through the Big Shot, while inside a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet.
- Add Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay Ink as shown with an Aqua Painter to the Shimmery White Die Cut.
- Adhere the 3 die cuts together, slightly offset, in the following order (bottom up): Black, Lemon Lime Twist & Shimmery White. Adhere to the Dahlia Image.
- Run the smaller die from the Bold Butterfly Framelits through the Big Shot with a piece of Basic Black Cardstock. Adhere with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
- Add Clear Epoxy Shapes for a final touch.
As I was skimming my shelves loaded with stamps, I was trying to locate a solid image that I haven’t used much! I found the PERFECT stamp that I had yet to ink-up! The Definitely Dahlia Background stamp has been one of my neglected stamps…purchased, put on the shelf, and unused. Well, it finally got its turn to shine! Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist welcomed it to my craft table and I have to say that I love the results, do you?
The Happy Birthday Thinlit Die was the perfect sentiment to coordinate with the large flower. I cropped it 3 times with my Big Shot, each with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to easily adhere them together to create multi-colored layers. This really makes the sentiment pop off the card.
