Learn How to Paint Stamped Images with Distress Inks

Hi, friends!

Like to add color to your stamped images? We've got something for you today! 

Flower stamps from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.comJulie has put together another coloring technique video. In this video, she will show you how to paint with Distress Inks. This technique is so much fun. All you need is a few Distress Ink pads, a stamping block, a water pen and an image stamped with waterproof ink.

Julie uses the Happy Hydrangea stamp set and dies in the video, but this technique works wonderfully with many of the flower stamps in the Greenhouse Society collection. Not a fan of flowers? You could even use this technique to color in the many critters from the Animal House collection of stamps and dies. 

See the Video

We hope you are inspired by Julie's video to give her technique a try and to make a card (or scrapbook page). If you do, please share your project with us! Leave a link to it comments or post it on Facebook or Instagram. Be sure to use the #TechniqueTuesday hashtag.

Here's a Chance to Win Your Favorite Scrapbook Stamp Set!

Scrapbooking stamps from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.comHi, everyone!

Remember how much fun it was hanging with your friends when you were a little kid? What about the feelings you experienced when you brought your children home from the hospital? And what about what it was like to send your children off to school for the first time?

One of the beautiful things about scrapbooking is being able to document and record the days of our lives and all the feelings we never ever want to forget.  
 
Scrapbooking memories is particularly important to me as I lost both my parents at a young age. I found great comfort after they passed away in looking through the many scrapbooks my mom compiled. She had meticulously chronicled the story of our family. I recently looked at my stash of scrapbooking supplies and told myself that I need to scrapbook more often so that my family's story will live on, and, maybe someday, someone will find comfort in my scrapbooks as I did my mom's.  
 
If you are new to scrapbooking (or haven't done it in awhile), it's easy to get started (or re-started). Grab a scrapbook, a few basic scrapbook supplies and some pictures and simply sit down and write out some of your memories. You can kick things up a notch by using a few scrapbooking stamps to help you in telling your family's story. 
 
We want to help you scrapbook your memories! 
 
Starting today, you can enter for a chance win one of our clear stamps for scrapbooking. Here's how: 
  1. Choose your favorite stamp set from all the scrapbooking stamps on our website.
  2. Leave the name of your favorite stamp set in a comment here between now and July 29th, 2018.
 We will announce a winner here on our blog on August 1st, 2018.

PS. There's another chance to get a free stamp set this month. Join our Memory Keepers Studio auto-ship program in July and you'll get a free Butterfly Love stamp set with your first shipment. See the stamp set and learn more about the program here

5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse, plus Free Card Sketches

Hi, friends!

Looking for some inspiration for the Simon & Sandy Seahorse stamp set?

Haven't seen the set yet? These animal stamps are sure to make you smile. With two large seahorses, plus a small starfish, baby seahorse and tiny jellyfish, you can make all kinds of stamped scenes. Plus you make handmade cards appropriate for a number of occasions with the nine sentiment stamps included in the set. 

Simon-and-Sandy-Seahorse-Animal-House-Clear-Stamps-Technique-Tuesday-FB

Here are five creative ways to use the stamps, courtesy of the Technique Tuesday Design Team. (Want a better look at these projects? Click on the photos to see them on our website.)

5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.com

Use watercolors to paint a background for seahorses (and their friends) to swim in. Kick your scene up a notch by adding some drops of "water" with Glossy Accents. Don't have any Glossy Accents? Use enamel dots, pearls or gems instead.

-----------------------------------------------


5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.com

Stamp an underwater scene with the stamps... and resist adding any color with markers or pencils. Say what?! I know, it's hard not to add any color! Instead take a cue from Jill! Use the Bubbles on the Border die to add a border and some circles cut from a number of different cardstocks to the scene. 

-----------------------------------------------


5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.com

Make a shaker card! Matching dies typically are used so folks can cut mats to stamp on. Kymona Tracey's got a clever idea. Make a shaker instead! Use the matching mat die to cut a window for a shaker card and stamp a seahorse in the window! Consider filling your shaker with sequins, beads and, even, sand. 

-----------------------------------------------


5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.com

Make a wild underwater scene with by stamping a seahorse and lots of Simon & Sandy's friends onto cardstock. Be sure to use a waterproof ink so you can color in your critters with watercolors. Not sure if your ink pad is waterproof? Test it out on scratch paper first! 

 -----------------------------------------------


5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.comUse Simon and Sally with their mat dies. Stamp your images on cardstock. Color them in and then cut them out with the mats. You can give them extra dimension and make them look like they are popping off the card by adhering them to it with foam tape
