Today’s technique in my online techniques class is the Painting with Color Splashes.

This is a super simple technique which can be done with any outline image stamp set.

This technique will look different each time depending on how much water you add to your color splashes.

The background piece under the turtle was the created during my Tie Dyed Silk technique video. You can view it on my YouTube channel “the stamp camp”.

Turtley Awesome, Fun Stampers Journey, thestampcamp, Color Splashes
The Color Splashes I used to color the turtle image and the plants were: Green Olive, LemonGrass, Turbo Teal and Cool Pool.

The embossing folder I used on the Lemongrass card stock is the Layered Scallops.

Fun Stampers Journey Color Splashes & Stencils with Glenda Calkins

Hit the Road, Fun Stampers Journey, Stencils, thestampcamp
Today’s technique in my Online Techniques Class is Color Splash and Stencils.

This is a really fun technique and I love the different stencils in the Designer Series Stencil. This is an 8 1/2″ X 11″ stencil with 4 different designs on it. This is very economical because you are getting 4 different stencils for the price of 1. Love that! I cut mine up into the 4 different prints so they are each 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″.

I used the “Gears” stencil and the Shimmer Silver Color Splash; so PRETTY in person!

In the video I also gave you a little tip on how to use up some of the excess spray.

I paired my “Gear” stencil with the Hit the Road stamp set as it looked masculine and I thought a good pairing.

I also embossed the Truck in Silver on Black so pretty. I made this a birthday card but it can easily be used for different occasions as well.

More Color Blocking cards with the Spread Happiness Stamp Set!

Spread Happiness, Fun Stampers Journey, Color Splashes, thestampcamp
I had the samples of the Color Blocking technique laying out on my table so decided to use them up into a nice little grouping of cards.

I used the same Color Splashes to color in my flowers as I did with the Color Blocking technique. They are the Lavender Fusion, Lemongrass, and Sour Lemon Color Splashes.

This is a full size card and all the cards use the February Bloom Box stamp set Spread Happiness #KO-0003 Price: $29.95. This is one of my favorite Bloom Boxes. I also love that it has coordinating dies #DI-0395 (6 dies) for $22.95!

To color in the flowers I just put some drops of Color Splash on a clear block and picked up the Color with my Blending Brush and colored in the flowers. Yes, just that easy!

I showed you the different prints I did at the end of the video and now you can see the finished cards using the prints.

This is another 4 1/4″ X 4 1/4″ square card, similar to the one I did in the video. Except on this one I added the Lemongrass stripes next to the Lavender Fusion strip all using the Color Splashes.

Fun Stampers Journey Silks with Glenda Calkins

Friday, February 16, 2018
BDWall, Fun Stampers Journey, Silks, thestampcamp
Here is another sample from yesterday’s video where I showed how to use Fun Stampers Journey Silks to do the Tie Dye Technique.

These fun Tie Dye prints are great to use with all the different background stamps.

Each time you do this technique you will get different results every time! It just depends on the colors of Silk you use; how many drops and how it’s mixed.

On the above sample I decided to emboss the BDay Wall stamp using the clear pigment ink and Black Embossing powder. I also thought it had more pink in the Tie Dye print so went with the Bubble Gum card stock.

I paired it with the Beautiful Moments Bundle. I thought the BDay Wall background with the Just Smile & Say Cheese was perfect for a birthday card.
BDwall, Fun Stampers Journey, glendasblog, Silks
On this card I did not emboss the BDay wall background stamp. I thought this Tie Dye print has more Pool Play coloring so went with the Pool Play card stock for this one.

Which do you like best? The one embossed or not embossed? Keep in mind with the Color Splash sheets you will not get a smooth image as the Color Splash sheets aren’t smooth.

I also pulled a lighter Tie Dye print and decided to use the Snap Wall background stamp.
Snap Wall, Silks, Fun Stampers Journey, glendasblog

I used the Beautiful Moments Bundle on this one as well. On this card I also used the Bubble Gum ribbon and the card base is Bubble Gum as well.

This will be a great Thank You card for the photographer who did Dean’s graduation pictures.

I love the vintage camera’s in the Beautiful Moments stamp set and it pairs really well with the Snap Wall and BDay Wall background stamps.

Tie Dyed Silks with Glenda Calkins

Thursday, February 15, 2018
Silks, Fun Stampers Journey, glendasblog, World Map
Today’s technique in my Online Techniques Class is Tie Dyed Silks! My picture doesn’t do this card or technique justice; it really is pretty in person. The colors are so light in my pictures; I’m not a very good photographer.

You will need the Color Splash sheets to do this technique along with a variety of Silks.

I used the Cool Pool, Turbo Teal, and Beach Ball Silks on today’s card. Tomorrow I’ll show you some other cards I did with more vibrant colors.

You will also need the Media Tray or a larger Tupperware container would work as well.

You will also want large Background stamps or line image stamps. I used different Large background stamps on my samples but you could also use outline flower images or Fish or Turtles and stamp them on your Tie Dyed piece using Black Licorice ink and die cut them out or hand cut out your stamped images.

On today’s card I used the World Map background stamp with Black Licorice ink.

The Sentiment is from the Begin Adventure stamp set.

This is a fun technique that will give you different results every time!

Silks, Fun Stampers Journey, glendasblog, thestampcamp
Today’s technique in my Online Techniques Class is Stamping with Silks.

This is a great way to multi-color stamps that have multiple images on the same block that you want different colors or you can use it to ink solid image stamps like an ink pad.

I chose the Sentimental Prints stamp set and the Cranberry Bliss Silk.

The background Cranberry Bliss card stock was embossed using the Heart Wall embossing folder.

I accented the front with the Black Licorice Sparkle Tape and the Special Day Organza Ribbon.
