Welcome to a new week here at Inspired by Stamping! This week, we’ve asked our designers to try a new card technique that they have never tried before! We are stretching outside of our comfort zone with an entire week of new techniques! Maybe you will see something that you will want to try too!

We begin today with Mynn with a folded frame technique.

Hi, all!  I’m super excited to share my card today!  I’ve used some beautiful products from the Inspired By Stamping store that came together perfectly!  This week, the DT is featuring new techniques.  I decided to try out the Folded Frame technique–and I LOVE the results!  Come and see the card…

The first thing I did was cut two pieces of Spring Lilacs paper into 4 1/4″ squares.  I then adhered the backs together to create a double sided piece of patterned paper.  I folded my frame, adhering it with foam dimensional pieces, and added another coordinating piece of Spring Lilacs paper, 3″ square, to the center.  I heat embossed a sentiment from the Words of Inspiration stamp set with some glittery black embossing powder and added a few rhinestones to accent it.

I then stamped two of the flower images from the Fancy Labels 3 stamp set.  I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers, fussy cut them out, then adhered them to the frame.  I added some glitter glue for added shine and texture to the images.

The final step was to add my created frame to a card base.  This card base was prepped with some more of the gorgeous Spring Lilacs paper to match the center of the frame and tie the whole thing together.  I LOVE these colors and the way this turned out!  What do you think?  I’d love for you to leave me a message in the comments below to let me know!

Next up we have Nupur. She’s sharing a great technique on how to stamp with your stamping block! Here’s Nupur.

“Hello friends…

Today I have made a card with a stamping technique which I had never tried before…

I love to watercolor so whenever I start working with an image stamp & I start coloring it… But this time I wanted to something different…

So I tried stamping with my stamping block to create a watercolor background for my focus point…

I really like the cool watercolor effect I got when I stamped with the stamping block…

& it is so easy… I applied tumbled glass distress ink on the whole block & then applied salty ocean distress ink on the edges… Next I spritzed it with my mini mister to activate & mix the colors & stamped it on watercolor paper. Once it was dry I stamped the pansy image from Flower Of The Month: Pansy stamp set using black archival ink…

The sentiment is also from the same stamp set … I have stamped it vertically along my focal point to create some interest…
