Technique: Spotlighting Christmas

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I will be sharing my cards created with the “Light Me Home” stamp set using the Spotlight Technique. Spotlighting is a stamping technique that highlights a small section of your stamped image.

When creating cards using the spotlight technique, you will be stamping your image twice; one for your main image or background, and the second which will be cut or punched to create your spotlighted area.

Grab a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage and join me as I share how I created three cards with the “spotlight” technique. This is my Facebook Live video from last night …

I am sharing all three of the cards that I did last night while doing the Facebook Live presentation. I stamped several of the backgrounds using my Stamparatus and then colored on one of them to create several cards. Here is the first of three …

All of my “spotlighted” areas are popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals, just adds to the fun! It’s always nice to add some dimension and texture to your cards.

After my first card was done … I punched out the two other areas of the colored piece with my circle punch to create even more cards! I was able to get 3 cards from stamping the image 4 times with the Stamparatus. Didn’t you like how quick and easy that was to use?

I punched out the wreath for a spotlight and then used Real Red for the mat and Old Olive for the card base… this really brought out the colors used in the wreath.

On the “From Our House to Yours” … I highlighted the path to the home and used Basic Black for the mat and Smokey Slate for the card base (and the sidewalk that I colored with my Stampin’ Blends).

Because there was not a lot of color in this card, I added a touch of Smoky Slate to the light post and to stamp my greeting on … this was three pops of color, yet the sidewalk is highlighted. The Shimmery Crystal Effects also makes our “Spotlights” pop!!

This technique brings simple stamping up a level but with ease, and it plays well with the Stamparatus.

I hope this inspires you to try out the “Spotlighting” technique … feel free to send me your creation, I’d love to share them here on my blog! And I invite you to join me each Tuesday on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page to watch LIVE and get in on the prize drawings …

Simply Sunday: Hand Delivered

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share yet another card that I created with the help of the Stamparatus and the Oh so cute “Hand Delivered” Hostess stamp set!  Yes, this is one of our exclusive stamp sets for those who host a stampin’ party or purchase enough to qualify as a hostess.  You can also have a book party too … just pass the catalog and let your friends & family pick out what they need … Remember, it’s Sale-A-Bration so each $50 (before S&H) purchase qualifys for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item.

This is such a cute stamp set and contains 7 different greetings!  Besides the poster you can put the greetings on, there is also a cake, balloons and books.  Take a look at the stamp set …

Get Well cards are requested all the times, and this stamp set is so sweet.  When deciding how I was going to create my card, I decided to “send” flowers with it, in the form of our designer paper … the stunning Petal Promenade Designer Paper.  The pattern I used had a lot of the Blackberry Bliss in it.  I did the “Happy Dance” when Stampin’ Up! brought this back!

When I cut my designer paper, I cut it in 4″ x 6″ pieces and use it for card fronts … I just cut off 3/4″ off the 6″ edge so I end up with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ … think I printed that wrong on my photo!!  But you can see I tucked it in the inside to decorate that too.

The coloring and the greeting were all done in Blackberry Bliss and I couldn’t resist using the new Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems … the compliment the Blackberry Bliss so beautifully.

Don’t forget that when you are working with a Photopolymer stamp set on the Stamparatus, you will need to use the foam mat this is included with the Stamparatus.  I always have my Silicone mat underneath … just always have it there!

Here are a few more samples that were created with the Hand Delivered stamp set ….

The Hand Delivered stamp set just stole my heart, and I hope that you enjoyed the samples shared today.  This maybe an exclusive Hostess stamp set but just by passing the catalog around, hosting a stamping party of purchasing enough to qualify as a hostess, it can be yours too.

Thanks for hanging out until I got my blog posted today … I appreciate your loyalty and patience.

Have an awesome day ~
