First Frost 3 Ways

December 25, 2018 No Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  And, I hope you’re having a wonderful day!  Today, I’m sharing First Frost 3 ways: beginner/I don’t have much time; casual/I like to add some detail; avid/I like tools and techniques.  I hope that by sharing this way, you’ll find the style that suits you and you can see how to get more out of your stamping.

 

First Frost 3 Ways

Beginner

 

First Frost 3 Ways - clean and simple card perfect for a new stamper - from theartfulinker.com

 

For this card, you’ll cut a Pool Party base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

Then, you’ll need two Whisper White pieces: 4″ x 5-1/4″

One of these is the focal layer and one goes inside.

Start by masking the sentiment with a piece of washi

so that only the selected part will be inked.

Ink with Pool Party, then remove the washi and stamp.

Next, stamp a large flower and a small flower on text weight paper

and fussy cut them.

Stamp a large flower on the card front in Pool Party.

Then, lay the large flower mask over it and stamp a small flower.

Repeat stamping small flowers and move masks as necessary.

Finish by stamping the flower bracts.

Next, stamp flowers on Whisper White in Pool Party

Spritz the flowers with alcohol and crumple the flowers.

Tip: Alcohol dries quickly and is less likely to cause the ink to bleed.
