About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Sharing the Techniques

Hi, and welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop! This is a monthly hop with Stampin’ Up! friends around the world; you’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month’s theme is Favorite Technique. Come on, that’s like asking me to pick my favorite kid! (Hint: It’s the one who isn’t whining at that moment.) After I narrowed it down to my top five or so, I finally just had to pick something. Okay, I couldn’t pick just one, so here I’m showing two of my favorites.

Stampin' Up! Ready for Christmas stamp set with glossy cardstock - Ink, Spray, & Smash technique with Emboss Resist technique - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts - SDBH

The techniques I used on my card are Emboss Resist and Ink, Spray, & Smash. I wanted to see what kind of background I’d get with the Ink, Spray, & Smash technique if I had already embossed an image on the Glossy Cardstock. The answer is: the fun kind!

I first heat embossed the tree from Ready For Christmas with Clear embossing powder. I did this on two card fronts. Then I dropped ink from Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Lemon-Lime Twist reinkers onto one piece of the cardstock, spritzed that card front with water, then smashed the two card fronts together and quickly pulled them apart. I blotted off excess ink and water with a microfiber cloth, then polished the backgrounds with the same cloth.

I added a piece of Bermuda Bay 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, then added a greeting from Ready For Christmas. To finish off the card, I colored a bunch of White Perfect Accents with the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends marker then added those to the tree.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you like my card and that you’ve been inspired to try either of these techniques. You are currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.
