Hi Everyone! It's Lindsay from the Design Team here to share another video tutorial with you today! When I first seen the new Vintage Christmas Ornaments Stamp Set I could not wait to start playing with it! This stamp set is full of Christmas stamps that are perfect for your Holiday cards! To get the look I wanted for my cards today I decided to use the marker stamping technique. If you want to see exactly how I put these two cards together, and the difference between the two, be sure to watch the full video tutorial down below!
To get the look of two colored stamping, like I did today, you could use regular ink pads, however I wanted to try out a different technique and I wanted to go about doing it in two different ways. I grabbed out my Arteza Brush Markers and two different kinds of paper. I cut a piece of watercolor paper and a piece of heavy weight white cardstock both with a rectangle die and got to stamping. The stamping is super easy! You just need to color the marker onto your stamp, give it a few mists of water, and stamp it onto the paper. I used my MISTI for stamping today, but you could easily do this with an acrylic block. To make sure the marker really transfers well I like to let the stamp sit on the paper for a few seconds before I pull it up.
This technique is so much fun to play around with. I was able to use three different green markers to really achieve a lot of depth and dimension on the evergreen stamp. Also, you can change the look you achieve just by switching up the paper! If you want more of a watercolor look and colors that blend together and are less defined stamp on watercolor paper. If you want a more defined stamp and slightly less blended colors, go with regular cardstock for stamping. The only thing to remember is to just heavy weight regular cardstock since you are adding water!
After all of the marker stamping I went on to heat emboss all of the "metal" areas on the ornament as well as the stamps on the center of the ornaments! This set has so many wonderful centers to choose from!! After adding a bit of gold and white baker's twine to "hang" my ornament, I finished off the outside of the card and then quickly stamped on the inside to give this card a nice finished look! I used the Poinsettia stamp set for the inside, which has some amazing Christmas sentiments!
I hope you all enjoyed today's video tutorial and the cards I made with the new Vintage Ornaments stamp set! If you are interested in any of the stamp sets I used on my card today, you can find them all listed and linked down below! Happy Crafting everyone!!
