Stamp it! Cards

Well, isn't this timely? Just finished my Savvy Stamping techniques class and now I get to share our latest special issue, Stamp It! Cards.

If you haven't had your fill of stamping fun, you can pick this issue up at stores near you or at our website for only $5.99!

I taught a very basic background technique with Versamark ink in my Savvy Stamping class and thought it would be fun to show you another, more advanced technique from Stamp It! Cards.

This time I used a large background stamp (anything grid-like: polka-dots, plaid etc...) as my guide to create a perfectly laid out pattern. It's much easier than eye-balling it (even though you know I'm such a fan of eye-balling!), less time consuming than laying down pencil marks and it can add to your overall look.

Next, find some coordinating stamps to finish the pattern. Layer color and designs for a completely custom look. (click on page for a larger image).

All the PC Pros demonstrated a technique, so check out Kim Kesti (coloring stamped images with markers), Alisa Bangerter (Inking stamp with dye ink sprays) and Wendy Johnson (stamp kissing) pages.

My other favorite part of this issue is right at the back. Stamp it 3 ways is always great inspiration on how to use one stamp set 3 different ways. Hey, more bang for you stamping buck!
