Inked and Stamped Shapes

Well, here it is! My November Technique Article! I'm quite happy with the way everything turned out for this one. I had a blast and actually made a few more that I'll share in the next few days.

I put the outer portion of the snowflake on an acetate pocket card.


Here's the inner snowflake on a shape card.

I put the outer Vintage snowflake on an acetate card over an eggshell notecard.


Finally, I put the inner Vintage snowflake on a cut circle.

And here's my video for the inking part.


I hope everyone enjoys their week!

Shari, Thanks so much for that video. I was wondering if you were stamping and coloring your cut out images while they were still on the cutting mat. I am going to start doing that too. Wonderful stamping!

Those are beautiful, thanks so much for the video. I downloaded one of the trees you used before but haven't cut it yet. I was a little confused about how to get it inked once it was cut, but never thought to do it before I removed it from the carrier sheet. Duh.
