Hi Friends! Sometimes I just love to resurrect old stamping techniques and make them new again. Mind you, an old technique to me may be one that you’d not seen before! The technique I’m referring to today is a quick marker swipe card, aka my “One Minute Card“. When I first shared this technique (back in 2013) I used our Stampin’ Write Markers. Today I’m using our Stampin’ Blends Markers and I must say, I do prefer using the Blends! I also added a bit of a ‘twist’ by combining the “Joseph’s Coat Technique” on my card too. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!
“Reason’s to Smile”
- Basic Black: 8 ½” x 5 ½”
- Basic White: 4” x 5 ¼” (x 2)
- 2022 – 2024 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper in two colours: 4 ½” x 6”
- Fold the Basic Black cardstock in half to create card base.
- Glue 4” x 5 ¼” Basic White card stock to front of card.
- Swipe bold tip of Stampin’ Blends Markers across second piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Basic White card stock in the following order: Pale Papaya, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party and Shaded Spruce. Place paper inside Stamparatus.
- Using the Stamparatus, stamp image from “Reasons to Smile” using Versamark ink pad. Stamp the ‘border” image from “Daffodil Daydream” set with Versamark.
- Cover stamped card stock with Clear Embossing Power, shake off excess and set with heat tool.
- Gentily swipe Black Memento ink pad over the stamped and embossed card stock. Lightly wipe off excess ink with a baby wipe or paper towel. Cut with second largest die from “Deckled Rectangles” and set aside.
- Stack the two pieces of Designer Series Paper together and cut with largest die from Deckled Rectangles. Cut in half. Line up one of each colour & glue card front.
- Glue stamped layer to front of card.
- Add Basic Rhinestones to finish card.
Enjoy the day & HAPPY STAMPING!
