This is my FAVORITE time of the Stampin’ Up! year!!

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.

  1. Ombre Stamping Technique

  2. Begin by inking stamp once. Stamp image on card stock then move slightly down paper before stamping again.
  3. Repeat for the length of the paper without reinking. Image will be lighter towards bottom.
  4. 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!
