For today’s card I’ve used the gorgeous new At Home with You Stamp set ..

At Home with You from Stampin' Up!

This is such a wonderful Stamp Set and so versatile for many occasions and themes.  Now I know it’s only June but thought it’s never too early to start Christmas Cards is it?  I mean it’s only 28 weeks (or 200 days) until Christmas!

How did she do that … 

  1. Stamp images in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmery White cardstock
  2. Colour images with your Stampin’ Write Markers.  Start with lighter colours and work to darker colours.  Go back over with the lighter colours to blend.
  3. Use your Blender Pen to take colour from your Sahara Sand Marker and colour around the base of your images for grounding.
  4. Assemble card and embellish.

Marker Tips & Know How

  • Our Stampin’ Write Markers come in all the Stampin’ Up! colours except whisper white and very vanilla
  • Odourless, Water-Based Dye Ink
  • always store your Markers horizontally to ensure even distribution of inks between ends.
  • when colouring with markers direct to paper start with the lighter colours first and build up with darker and other colours.
  • Markers are dual tipped – flexible brush tip and 0.5mm fine tip
  • Use the Brush tip like a ‘brush’ rather then a regular marker
  • Coordinates perfectly with Stampin’ Up! Classic Inks and Cardstock

Now let’s check out what the rest of the Stamping Techniques 101 Design Team have created for you today ..
