My First Tutorial

Hello happy people! Finally! It is here. My first tutorial! Soon, whenever my W-2's get here and I get back taxes, I will invest in a camcorder and make videos! I'm so excited. Let's get started! This is a super simple note card today. This is using Priceless #115052 on page 121 of the new catalog. You will also need your Whisper White Cardstock #100730 and Stampin' Write Markers pg 152 in Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red, Barely Banana, and Mellow Moss. Let's get started!

Using the Swirl images from Priceless, you are going to use the markers to color these images in multiple colors. Tip: If you use baby wipes to clean your stamps, make sure all lint is removed from stamp before starting. Failure to do so will result in the lint accumulating on your marker tips!

Using your Elegant Eggplant marker, you will first want to color the bold swirls. Tip: When coloring small areas, use the fine tip of your marker to ensure that no unwanted color gets on the other design elements of the stamp.

Now, using your Barely Banana marker, color the dotted swirls. Color flower elements in Rose Red, and finally color whisps (as I like to call them) in Mellow Moss. Be sure to huff hot breath on your stamp to remoisten the ink and you're ready to stamp your image!

Here is your final product! Please click on any images you see for a larger view.

For the simple note card, I stamped these multicolored swirls onto Whisper White Card stock. Then I stamped the butterflies in Rose Red and Elegant Eggplant, cut them out, and added Dimensionals.

Well there we are stampers! A simple and sweet card! Hope you all enjoyed it, have a Terrific Tuesday!
