Technique Class

April 20, 2018

Today is the first of my classes this month and we are learning techniques.  I thought I would share a very quick card we made using the split negative technique.  I attached two pieces of Pick a Pattern Washi Tape across the front of scored Thick Whisper White.   I stamped the greeting from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set onto the lower right hand corner using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.   I decided to use the table image from the Mediterranean Moments stamp set.  I had been thinking about this technique for a while and once I saw the Stamparatus in action I knew it would be perfect for this technique.  I cut a circle the size I wanted to stamp on from scrap card using one of the Layering Circle Framelit Dies and placed the template onto the Stamparatus.  I lined up the image I wanted to stamp and attached it to one of the windows.  I cut a Whisper White and a Basic Black circle the same size.  I placed the Whisper White circle onto my template, inked the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped onto the Whisper White card.  I removed the Whisper White circle and replaced it with the Basic Black circle.  I cleaned the stamp and this time stamped the image using Versamark.  I sprinkled the image with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I lined up the images on my Stampin’ Trimmer and cut them in half.  I attached one half of the Whisper White image to a Basic Black scalloped circle and then added one half of the Basic Black image.  This looks so stunning and is so simple to create.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached two strips of the same Washi Tape across the bottom of the card.

I absolutely love this card and love this technique, have you tried it?  It really is quite simple, especially using the Stamparatus.  A word of warning if you love the sentiment on this card, then you need to check out the Last Chance products here because unfortunately this stamp set won’t be in the next catalogue.

Bye for now,
