Today I have a really cool technique to show you. It’s called “thumping”. It gives you a multi-colored image. You get it by thumping or bouncing or tapping your Stampin’ Write Markers on your stamp. You’ll have to watch the video to see what I mean. I used this technique on the wreath image.
The card base is Merry Merlot and that’s the color I used for the bow and the sentiments as well. I just love this Wishing You Well stamp set. The images are so pretty and delicate.
I used Pear Pizzaz to first ink up the stamp to get good coverage. Then I used these markers: Pear Pizzaz, Grapefruit Grove, Old Olive, Call Me Clover, Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig. You can try whatever colors you have handy that would work well with the image you’re using.
Once I thumped the markers on the stamp, I breathed on it to moisten the ink and then stamped it on a piece of 5 1/4 x 4 Very Vanilla. I stamped the bow in Merry Merlot over the bottom of the wreath. The strip of Very Vanilla for the sentiment is 1/2 x about 3 and then was cut using the Banner Triple Punch to give it a flag on both ends. I did the same with a 5/8 x 3 strip of Merry Merlot. The corners were punched with the Detailed Trio Punch.
I used this technique on the tree on a Christmas Card. Isn’t it pretty? I used the same greens but left out the Grapefruit Grove and Tranquil Tide and added Night of Navy.
Watch the video to see how to do this technique, it’s really fun.
These are the products I used to make the Wishing You Well Card. You can click any of the products to purchase them on my Online Store.
The Christmas Card has a Night of Navy Card Base with a 5 1/4 x 4 layer of Silver Foil Paper and then a 5 x 3 3/4 layer of Night of Navy. I used the Thumping Technique for the tree from the Winter Woods Stamp Set and cut it out with the largest Layering Oval Die. I stamped the snowflakes from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set with Versamark and then added Silver Embossing Powder and heated with the Heat Tool. I also embossed the sentiment. Below is the list of products for this card.
