Snowy Velvet paper & Shimmer White Cardstock

How to add classic stampin’ ink to Snowy White Velvet Sheets

  1. Spritz water generously on a the desired size piece (make sure it is large enough for all your stamped image you want).  One is needed for the pumpkin and one for the sunflower leaves
  2. Add a dot in ink onto a clear block (leaves-old olive, pumpkin-daffodil delight, mango melody)
  3. Use water painter to dab ink on the velvet sheet.  Try to get color variations with more intense ink in some areas
  4. Let this sheet dry overnight
  5. Velvet sheets are ready to be stamped!  Stazon Ink is recommended for a crisp image

How to add classic stampin’ ink to Shimmery White Cardstock

  1. Add drops of ink refills to shimmery white across one edge (have them be a puddle).  For the sunflower, daffodil delight and mango melody were used)
  2. Take a store card and drag the ink down the cardstock in a swiping motion with the card edge.  Make sure to move the ink quickly before it soaks into the cardstock.  If a spot was missed, add a drop or two directly onto the store card edge and swipe some more.
  3. This dries fairly quickly (depending on how much ink used)

There are so many possibilities using this swiping technique.  It is perfect for those line image stamps.  Look through your stamp library to see what you can create today!  Make sure to watch the LIVE replay video below on how to create these cards.
