Hi crafty friends and welcome back to my card making blog. Today’s share is created with the Stampin Up stamp set Birthday Delivery and the Direct to Rubber Technique using Stampin’ Write markers which is our challenge this month.
Stampin’ Write Markers are packaged per colour family, including the In-colours or you can order the Many Marvelous Markers Box which includes all 38 of Stampin’ Ups! main colours with room in the box to add the current in colours. I opted for the Box as I love having all my markers in one place.
The Direct to Rubber Technique: – using your markers to colour directly onto your stamp
Here’s a quick little video showing how to do this.
If you have difficulty viewing the video in your e-mail – CLICK HERE to visit my blog.
A couple of tips:
- This technique seems to work better on rubber stamps.
- When using Acrylic stamps, you want to color the image a couple of times and stamp it on scrap paper before doing it for the final time on your good card stock. This seems to prime the photopolymer a bit so the images comes out clear.
- If you have spots and blotches, you can use the fine tip end of the marker to touch up where necessary.
I know I have said it before, but I LOVE this Bundle….when I first saw it, I didn’t think I would but I ordered it anyway, funny thing, I have made more cards with this bundle then anything else in my preorder, haha…
You can view my three other cards here:
Both of today’s cards are super simple to create. I let the Designer Paper do all the work, all I stamped was the sentiment on each. The images are cut from the coordinating Birthday Memories Designer Paper. Of course, you can also use the stamp set and the markers and colour images for your cards too!
