Ready for a project and a simple valentine tutorial? This one features some of the NEW things you’ll want to put in your first Sale-A-Bration shopping cart – and a how-to tutorial for the Ombre Stamping Technique, perfect for the Hey Love stamp set (from the NEW Occasions Catalog) – featuring the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets (available as a FREE selection during Sale-A-Bration).
The Ombre Stamping Technique is a simple one – but great for gorgeous effects!! When a stamp set has tiny images, the Ombre Stamping technique can create an interesting background by repeating the same image in different tones of the same color.
Ombre Stamping Technique
- Begin by inking stamp once. Stamp image on card stock then move slightly down paper before stamping again.
- Repeat for the length of the paper without reinking. Image will be lighter towards bottom.
- Ink stamp again and begin again at the top, repeating as many times as necessary to fill background.
Here’s another fun photo of a similar card layout, but with the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets turned sideways. Which one do you like better? Leave a comment!
