Stamp & Camp with Mary Simple Stamping - December 3, 2019 - #simplestamping Merry Christmas Ghosting And Huge Sale

Today is the start of the Huge Stampin' Up! sale the Year End Close-out.  The retiring items from the Holiday Catalog are on sale starting today, goes to January 3 or until the item is sold out.  Start your shopping here.

I will also have another blog post with all the items listed but didn't want you to have to wait.

So today is Simple Stamping Day.  I have a great Christmas card and it is a fun and quick card.

I call the technique Ghosting it is the same as doing a stamp off but you don't stamp off you start with the full ink and then you keep stamping, it is similar to the Heads rolling card.

Such a fun card. You can use any color and in fact you can use most sayings and have a great card.

Let's see how to make this card.

Product List

Supplies: Stamp Set - Snowman Season [150458]; Ink - Real Red [147084]; Card Stock - Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes [131527].

NOTE: This is a fun card to make.  It uses a form of Stamping Off.  I call it Ghost Stamping.  The Stamp is not re-inked before stamping again and again until there is not a lot of ink left on the stamp.  You can use most saying stamps for this but the long sayings I think work the best.
  1. With Real Red Ink Stamp the Merry Christmas starting at the top of the note card and then move down and stamp 2 more times – 3 in total stamps with out re-inking.
  2. With Real Red Re-ink the stamp and repeat step 1.
  3. With Real Red Re-ink the stamp and stamp until you reach the end of the note card.

Don't miss out on all the products for sale.  Only while supplies last.  Click here to shop now.

Stamp & Camp with Mary #simplestamping - Nov 27, 2019 - #simplestamping Rolling Heads

Today let's have some fun.  I really love this technique.  It makes it seem  like something is moving.  So what better than making a snowman's head roll.

I would love to have a stamp set say "Heads Roll", "Rolling Heads", or something like that it would be cool with this card.

Want to see it.  Rolling Heads or Heads will Roll

I think that is so cool.  What do you think?  Did I go to far?  I got this because when I was growing up we used to make snowmen and then try to kick the heads off (Kung Fu Fighting).

So let's take a look at how to do this?

Product List

Supplies: Stamp Set - Snowman Season [150458]; Ink - Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker [100082], Regals Stampin' Write Markers Real Red [147155]; Card Stock - Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes [131527]

  1. With the Basic Black Marker ink up the bottom 2 Snow Balls and stamp on the left side of the Note Card. Clean off the stamp very well.
  2. With the Basic Black Marker Stamp the Head First stamp it at the right hand side the way you would like it to be at the end of the roll.
  3. Do Not re ink but stamp is back toward the Body.  TIP: You may want to plan out how your head will roll.  I found the way it worked was moving the head counter clockwise.
  4. With the Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker Ink up and stamp your saying.  NOTE:  now you may want other sayings for this Card so go for it.  You could even write your own saying.

So what do you think?  Do you like a rolling head?
