Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

Inking Techniques Week!

Hi friends,
I wanted to share some cards and samples from an inking class I held last week. We had alot of fun with ink and some household items believe it or not!  We used bubble wrap, shaving cream, blue painter's tape, white felt and more. Sometimes crafting gets messy, but it is always fun!  I thought I would take a week and show you what we were up to.

The card I have today is one where we used rubber bands as our stamps. How?  By placing rubber bands on the acrylic blocks and using that as a stamp. Here's the card:

And here's how we created the stamp:

And here's some of the beginning stages of my stamping. You'll note the different widths of rubber bands make different stripes and also, I twisted some really long rubber bands on the block which created a cool ripple effect!

This is a great technique for a bold, graphic image. I'll be trying this again in the future! Meanwhile, I'm looking around my house for other "useful" ink delivery systems!

Have a great Monday!
