Welcome this week to our
Stamp Tv Kit Addicts Friday Funday Tutorial!
This week I am sharing a technique that you and a lot
of crafters might have tried or done,
but I kinda fell upon it when I was making
cards for our release party.
I had stamped a image and apparently
got a little green ink on my finger,
and it ended up on my card.
So I grabbed my sand eraser to see if it would remove it…
well it did remove most of it, so I continued.
I added versa mark ink to the image I had stamped
and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Next I did the emboss resist technique and
the spot that i have used the sand eraser on,
grabbed more of the ink.
When I was finished it kinda reminded me of leather.
So I thought it would make great rustic or
south west looking christmas tags or a card.
I will use this technique in the future for some masculine cards! <3
Here are the items I used.
Gina K. Designs Suppies used:
So I started this project by die cutting the tag die from Layering Weight Card Stock ( I will use Heavy Base Weight on my next ones)
I then put my stamp in my MISTI and stamped
the pine needles on the tag using Grass Green Ink.
You don't have to have a Misti,
you can use any stamp positioning tool.
Or Eyeball it!
I then grabbed the small pinecone image and put it on a block and used the Kraft and Dark Chocolate inks. I inked up the image in Kraft and then did the rock -n- roll technique to get a little of the Dk. Chocolate on the edges and stamped the pinecone. Inked it up and stamped a second one!
After the ink had a few seconds to dry I used the embossing magic and prepped it for heat embossing. I place the tag in the misti where it was before and used the versa fine ink and stamped the pine needles. Then just eyeballing the pinecone I stamped it in versa fine ink as well. Applied the clear embossing powder and heat set it.
Next I took the sand eraser and just erased areas on the tag.
This is the sand eraser that Gina carries them in her store.
Just so when I ink it up it will grab ink in some areas more than others.
I sponged on Warm Cocoa Ink and when I got the desired color I wanted, I used Dark Chocolate on a sponge dauber and inked around the edges for a little more color!
Now you can see where I used the sand eraser.
It leaves darker spots and gives it a rustic feel.
Then I stamped the greeting with Dk. Chocolate in my Misti and then inked it up with versa fine and heat embossed it with clear powder! :)
I had fun doing this technique and I am loving this kit! <3
I just couldn't quit with the pine needles,
I had to try it with the Poinsettia and the snowflakes! :)
So tell me in the comments... Is this something you would try or have done before?
Happy Stamping and
I hope you have a little time to get inky! :)
I haven't done this before but will definitely try it, especially since I have a sand eraser coming in my order! It is a great idea for when I make mistakes, as well!
That is so cool and your tags look amazing. I will try that some time soon too.
I will have to try this, always need tags or even to go on a card front
Love these I am off to try this technique thanks so much for the idea.
Love it and nope I don't believe I have ever heard of this technique but it sure looks so cool and I sure hope I get some time to try it
I have done this before. I was addicted to tags when I first started stamping. I hand cut them. I used sepia and antique gold ink it was so fun and so many different looks. I need to learn how to post pictures so I can share my art work. I do enjoy every one elses. Thanks.
