Regarding Dahlia 2 Step Stamping Technique

imageI have been asked,

“What is the 2 Step Stamping Technique

you used to create this image with the

Regarding Dahlia Stamp Set?

So here it is!




1.  I stamped the image using Memento’s Black Tuxedo Ink,  (item, #13278)

2.  I colored the image using the Stampin Up Blendabilities Alcohol Markers in, Daffodil Delight (item, #130998),  Pumpkin Pie (item, #130997) and Cherry Cobbler (item, #130995)

3. Once I was happy with my shading I re-stamped the image using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, (item, #101049) and Versa Mark Water Mark Ink,( item, #102283)

4. Covered image in clear embossing powder, (item, #109130) and heat set it with my heat tool, (Item, #129053).  That’s what gives it such an awesome 3D  WOW!

5.  I then fussy cut it out and attached it using the Stampin Up dimensionals (item, #104430).

The Card is basically the same as my Regarding Dahlia Convention Card Swap Tutorial.

  • The Cherry Cobbler cardstock matt was embossed using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, (item #127751) and the Big Shot, (item #113439)
  • The Swirls are from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set (item #131987, wood and 124164, clear)
  • Sentiment is from the Blooms with Hope Hostess Stamp Set, (133949, wood and 133952, clear)
  • The background on the strip of pumpkin Pie card stock is now retired, it is from the En Francais background stamp.

I hope you give this technique a try.

I would love for you to send me your pictures of what you have created using this technique,

Stampin Up Blendabilities Are Here!

I am so excited the wait is over!image

Blendabilities Alcohol Markers are now available!

Earlier this month, Stampin Up allowed demonstrators to purchase the Blendabilities Alcohol Markers on pre-release. I love these markers and I must say, they are really fabulous as well as cost friendly. When I compared them to other alcohol markers I was very impressed.

Blendabilities are dual tipped one end is a fine point and the other is a brush tip, the colors are vibrant and rich, Stampin Up has pulled out all the stops with this one.

I have used other Alcohol markers and I like them as well but… Stampin Up has equipped the Blendabilities with what I love from my other markers into one marker. They have also taken the guess work out of trying to find like color shades that will allow me to get that progressive blend from dark to light or light to dark.

With the Blendabilities you will get 3 coordinating shades of one color for each color group. If you have the Cherry Cobbler Ink, Card Stock and ribbon you now can color an image using the Cherry Cobbler Alcohol markers to blend your image, it will come in dark, medium and light shades all for 11.95. Yes, that’s 3 markers for $11.95!

If you are familiar with the other alcohol markers out there you know that they run about $7-$8 for one marker. With Blendabilities you will get 3 coordinating shades of each color group, that’s 3 alcohol markers in dark, medium and light.
