A Fun Marble Background Technique

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I want to share with you a simple and fun marble background technique. With just a few basic supplies you can make fabulous backgrounds for your next project!

For this technique you just need the following supplies; marbles, cardstock, ink refills and a container with a lid. That’s it!!

The first card that I created using the Marble technique features the Crafting Forever stamp set. This stamp set is being retired and will not be in the new catalogue being released in June.

For this card I chose a primary colour scheme … Crushed Curry, Pacific Point and Calypso Coral. I love the way the colours all came together!

Next I decided to go with a softer feel using the Daisy Lane stamp set.

This is one of my favourite stamp sets from the current catalogue … I love daisies! There are coordinating punches for both of the daisy images which makes creating with this set super easy!

For this background I chose to use Seaside Spray, Flirty Flamingo and Rococo Rose. Together they made the perfect background for the card I was creating.

This inking technique is so much fun, I could have kept creating all day!!

You’ll be creating beautiful backgrounds in a multiple of colours in no time at all!

Mirror Image Stamping

Hello and thank you for stopping by today to check out my blog!!

Today I want to share with you a card I designed using a Mirror Image stamping technique. Have you ever had a stamp image that you wished was facing the opposite direction? Well after you learn this technique that will never be an issue again.

The card I want to share features the Free As A Bird stamp set by Stampin’ UP!

The image that I am going to use for this technique is the cute little bird in the bottom left hand corner. He works perfectly for this and combined the two birds make a perfectly lovely wedding card!!

Aren’t they sweet … Love Birds!!

All you need for this technique is a silicone craft sheet. Stamp the image on to the silicone craft sheet. Flip it over and press stamped image on to the paper directly where you want it.

Let Me Show You

I have created a video tutorial to demonstrate the mirror image technique for you. This is my very first video I have made so please by kind … I have not yet learned the art of video editing… LOL!

Well what do you think … easy peasy? I love this stamping technique!!

I created another card using this technique and the adorable rain boots stamp that was in the March Paper Pumpkin kit. These boots are so stinkin’ cute!

The possibilities are endless!!

Thank you again for popping in, I am so glad that you did. Take care, stay safe & healthy and Happy Crafting!!
