Water Lifting Stamping Technique using Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird Stamp Set

Hello stamping friends. 

Today I have a technique card for you. I love how this one turned out, especially with all that texture behind the stamped panel. The stamp set featured today is the Free as a Bird stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Water Lifting Technique Instructions

I think this technique is officially called water lifting, but I also like to also refer to it as reverse watercolour, as instead of adding colour with our Water Painter Pens, we are removing it.

Here's how I created the stamped panel:

  1. I used a sponge brayer and a Misty Moonlight ink pad to create an ombre effect on the thick Whisper White cardstock I had cut with the Stitched Nested Framelits.
  2. I then stamped my image from the Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird stamp set in Jet Black Stazon over the brayered ink.
  3. The Stampin' Up! Classic Ink Pads are really reactive to water, so when you paint over the image with a Water Painter, it lifts the ink in that spot. I just kept on doing this in areas I wanted to lighten.

I have a video showing this technique. It features another card, but the technique is exactly the same.

I really love the edge effect you get with the diet cut Stitched Nested Shapes. They are a really versatile die set.

Here's a closer look at the dies:

Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.I wanted to create lots of texture on this card, so I used the Subtles 3D embossing Folder on the Cumb Cake layer, and then added several different trims and embellishments under the stamped shape. You can link to all of these products in my online store, using the links at the end of the post. Here's what I have used:

  1. A strip of Misty Moonlight patterned DSP from the Flowers For Every Season paper pack
  2. A strip of Misty Moonlight Twill ribbon
  3. Two strips of Very Vanilla scalloped lace trim
  4. Some looped Braided Linen Trim
  5. Some wooden leaves from the In Good Taste Elements (love these for neutral embellishment and texture)

You can view a video showing how I attach looped ribbons to create texture on my projects HERE.

Wishes and Wonder Christmas Card using Inked Embossing Folder Technique.

Hello stamping friends.

Today I am back with a Christmas card using Wishes and Wonder bundle from the Stampin' Up! 2020 August to December Mini Catalogue (previously called the Holiday Catalogue). It also uses one of the pieces I made in my Inked Embossing Folder video in my last post.

I have used the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder as the inked embossing folder piece on this card. I just LOVE this embossing folder for Christmas 2020. It's a 6x6" 3D Folder which gives you lots of embossing space. You can find the links to all the products I have used today, at the end of the post. I have used Gray Granite ink over Shimmery White cardstock on this piece. I have also used Gray Granite for my base card.

I've used two different Designer Series Papers on this card.  The first one is the Plaid Tidings DSP with lots of different coloured plaids. I love some of the bright bold ones, but today I have used the subtle Crumb Cake pattern.

The second Christmas patterned paper I have used is Trimming the Town. I particularly love the piece that has all of the Christmas sentiments in lots of languages. I have used this on the die cut label in the card. I adhered it to a piece of cardstock before die cutting to give some extra weight.

Store in Australia.I have coloured the gold embossed sleigh using the dark Cherry Cobbler and dark Real Red Stampin' Blends. The sentiment is stamped in Real Red, and the circle as well as the shape it's placed on are cut from the coordinating dies (as is the sleigh). To finish my card I have used the Wonderful Gem embellishments, and the Forever Greenery Trim combo.
