Watercolor Stamping with Spellbinders

 


Hello everyone, and welcome back to my blog!  Today I wanted to share a card I made using a watercolor stamping technique that involves stamping first and then water spritzing second.  This card uses the new Love Never Fails from Spellbinders Cardmaker II Collection, and I just love this set.  From the beautiful floral images to the amazing sentiments, it's a winner.


If you'd like to see exactly how I made this card I do have a video that you can watch here or over on my YouTube Channel:

Color Transition Stamping with Spellbinders


Good morning everyone!  Welcome back to my blog!  Today I want to share a card I made using the new Embroidery Flowers from Spellbinders Cardmaker II Collection.  I decided to do what I like to call Color Transition Stamping.  I'm sure there is another name out there for it, but this is just what I call it.


It does require a stamp positioning tool of some sort, and I used a Misti for mine.  I have a video to share of the process if you'd like to watch that here or over on my YouTube Channel:

Trinity Stamps & Artesprix Collaboration -- Sublimation and Stamping!



Welcome to a Trinity Stamps & Artesprix Collaboration!  I had the absolute best time learning about sublimation and how I could incorporate stamping into it. Talk about fun! I made several fun projects to include a keychain, a bag tag, and a bookmark. 


My first project was a Plastic Key Chain that I combined with the Big Bows Little Bows stamp set.



My second project was a Wood Bag Tag that I used the Warm Heart stamp set on along with the Winter Winds stamp set.


My final project used the Bookmark with the Holiday Hangout and Let Your Light Shine stamp sets.  We got tricky and used mirror stamping for our words to show up correctly.


If you'd like to watch the video of how I made these projects you can watch it here or over on my YouTube Channel:


Be sure to head to the Artesprix Blog for more sublimation inspiration!
