Seasoned With Kindness


I'm using another of the Hostess Stamp sets from the Annual catalogue today. Seasoned With Kindness is a beautiful stamp set containing both images and sentiments. It's a two-step set, so the 'colouring' is actually done with other stamps in the set.

I used Basic Grey ink and stamped the Pots twice, once directly onto the white panel and again onto scrap Whisper White card. I then used an Aqua Painter and Smoky Slate ink to light watercolour each Pot. 

There is a 'Shading' stamp and I used this on top of the watercolouring using Smoky Slate ink again. 


The Pots and sentiment were all cut out by hand.

Geared Up Garage - Masculine Card - Video Tutorial


I inked up a new stamp set for today's cards. There is also a Video Tutorial below showing you how to create them.

Geared Up Garage and the coordinating Garage Gears Thinlits are a great starting point for creating traditional 'masculine' cards :o) 


This is the card I created in the Video - it's just a little different to the original :o)

The car and sentiment were stamped with the Stamparatus, first using Memento Black ink. I then stamped right over top of them using Versamark ink and heat embossed using Clear powder. You can do this for any colour ink, so can create embossing in all colours even without that particular colour in the powder ... it's a really simple technique and super easy to do with the Stamparatus.


The car was coloured using the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I didn't do any blending here, just straight forward colouring.

Here is the Video .....
