Video: Stamping Shadows + Discount Code + Giveaway

Hi, stampers. Today’s video shares two fun things: creating stamping shadows and a peek at the newest colors of Color Theory Inks. Oh! And I have a great discount code and giveaway!

[All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. To watch the video in HD on YouTube, click HERE.]

Today’s technique of “stamping shadows” is so-very-easy to do, yet gives really fun results. After stamping the first bold and colorful image, I stamped it again – slightly offset from the first image – without reinking or cleaning it. This gives a soft, shadow-like image behind that main image. This technique works great with large, bold images like this Studio Calico “Hooray” greeting. This lighter second image is called “second generation stamping” and works better with some inks than others. The ink that I found is best? Studio Calico Color Theory Ink. (Click HERE for a video on generation stamping.)

I also added some fun Studio Calico sequins (and a couple tiny random star sequins) with Matte Multi Medium and a Hero Arts Metallic Decor silver dot in the center.

DISCOUNT CODE

In this video, I show the newest six colors of Color Theory Ink from Studio Calico. This line of ink is great because it works well for second generation stamping, is Copic-friendly and doesn’t stain stamps. (For a video with more details and a closer look at this ink line, click HERE.) Originally, Studio Calico came out with twelve colors and they now have released six more.

And for my readers, Studio Calico is offering two great discount codes on these inks!

Check this out…

While you are there, you may want to check out THIS back to school stamp set. I am ordering it now – so fun. I also recently purchased the You’re Pretty Amazing die, Be Awesome stamp + die combo and the Hooray die. Oh, and if you are one who likes to get reinkers, the Color Theory Inks now have them, too.

INK SWATCH DOWNLOAD

As I mentioned in the video, I have a free Ink Swatch Download for these inks – just click HERE and HERE. To see my complete list of Ink Swatch Downloads along with a video on how I use them, please go HERE.
