Stampin Up Everything Eleanor

everything eleanor swap

 

 

This card was inspired by a swap card I saw at the 2014 Stampin Up Convention last month. I have been asked by several people how the card was created and unfortunately I only had taken a photo of

the card and did not have any of the instructions or the name of the original creator of the project so I made my own version of the card and I taught it at my August Stamp Camp.

It was a big hit!

So I would like to share it with you my subscribers.

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,
