Faux Stencil Technique with Elements of Style

Wow, only 5 days in, and this stamp set is already fabulously popular! Probably it didn’t hurt that we received it as a free gift at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership meeting back in January (thanks Shelli!). Yes, another perk of being a demonstrator–you know I can’t resist ;-)

This set is called Elements of Style and I love it because it’s got just that–several distinct elements from different styles. They’re different, yet they all fit together in that magic way that only comes from Stampin’ Up! artists. This is a new SUMMER MINI CATALOG stamp set, so you can order it now.

The colors here are going to be retiring at the end of June–don’t wait too long to get them if they’re some of your favorites, too. Green Galore and Bermuda Bay will both disappear on June 30th, and are available only while supplies last from June 1-30.

There’s a technique in here, too! Pull out your Stamping Sponges, because you’re going to love this.

***TIP*** For the Faux Stencil Effect on the flourish image (easy, but looks so cool!!):

  1. Ink the whole flourish with Green Galore ink
  2. Use a Stamping Sponge to pick up ink from a Bermuda Bay ink pad and sponge Bermuda Bay ink onto the stamp in a few places
  3. Repeat using Not Quite Navy ink
  4. Stamp onto card stock

Cool, isn’t it? This technique is great for any bold-type image. You can also try it on the new Sweet Scoops stamp set that I showed on May 1st. Hmm… might look like rainbow sherbet!!

  1. Excellent technique! I think I like it better than rock 'n roll since you can highlight in more places on your image.
