Welcome to the Stamping Techniques Blog Hop. This month we are featuring different stamping techniques using products from Close To My Heart. I ran into some issues with the posting/linking process so ended up on the 'fringes' of blog hop so no one is linking directly to me this time but you can see all the participants on Melinda's Blog.
I just hosted a workshop where we made our own ink pads to make this Happy Birthday card.
The "ink pad" is made by folding up some paper towels and then using our re-inkers to blend some nice coloring together for a variegated ink pad. On the left card, we used a stamp like you normally would to ink the background pattern. For the card on the right, we turned the stamp over so the smooth side went into the ink pad and then it leaves a more random pattern. Then we stamped a sentiment and layered it on our card. These came together pretty quickly and the ladies at the gathering thought this was a fun technique to try out.
Re-inkers: Honey, Smoothie, Hollyhock, Canary
Paper: Kaleidoscope, Smoothie, White Daisy
Stamp Sets: B1419 - Joyful Birthday, D1604 - Season of Thanks
