Hi friends! There is so much good stuff packed into today’s video it’s like taking a class but FREE! Yay! The card we are making is a tad more advanced than we usually make in stamp school but I know you can handle it. Also the techniques I am going to share with you will help you get more use from your stamps and let you create collage and scene images using the stamps you already have.
The stamps I will be using are by ArtNeko, *Save 10% off your next order of any size or get free shipping on orders over $50 (whichever discount is greater you get!) just by mentioning thefrugalcrafter!
Technique you learned today:
Monoprint Background (With gel press)
Alcohol (Copic) Marker coloring
- Stamps (ArtNeko)
- Dye based ink (blues and greens)
- Alcohol ink markers (Copic, Promarker, Prismacoloror others-will list colors below but all you need is shades of each color for blending)
- Gel Press (a gelatin type mono printing plate, you can also use a Gelli Plate, Stampendous creative palette or a mirror stamp, OR use a large background stamp)
- Embossed scrap of paper (for texture on the gel press or mirror stamp)
- Buttons, ribbon or other embellishments
- Quickie Glue pen
- Ultra fine clear glitter
- Kraft and white cardstock (I like Neenah Classic Crest super smooth for stamping)
- Memento ink in Rich Cocoa (or your favorite color) to stamp the image to be colored.
- Vintage Photo Distress ink and a sponge
Markers: Tip! If you don’t have enough markers use colored pencils to shade and highlight the colors you do have or use whatever medium you enjoy coloring with. Just make sure to use compatible ink.

I hope you found this in-depth video helpful and you give these techniques a try with the stamps you have on hand. You don’t have to use all of these techniques in one card but hopefully one or two might be just the thing that your next card needs! Thanks to ArtNeko for sponsoring the video and til next time happy crafting!
