Meet Carrie Avery, a seasoned stamping instructor and designer. In this opening lesson, Carrie begins by demonstrating a few tips for getting clear impressions. Then, learn how to create unique effects: a shadow technique for depth and delightful frames made with masking. You'll also learn how to care for your stamps!
Discover how to stretch your stamps as Carrie shows you how a single stamp can be used to create a variety of backgrounds. Learn how to "kiss" using multiple stamps to mix patterns. With Carrie's help, you'll soon be creating stunning scenery with key tips on masking.
Let Carrie show you which stamps work best for dark-colored or textured card stock. Get acquainted with vellum and book paper to create memorable accents. Then, for the stamper that doesn't necessarily love to color, learn how to use patterned papers to create the same effect.
Expand your horizons as Carrie looks beyond dye-based ink pads to introduce a series of incredible effects. You'll learn how to incorporate pigments, glue and solvent inks into your stamping repertoire for effects with foil, chalk and more. You'll also learn a vibrant alcohol ink resist technique, which creates bold images that really pop.
Nothing beats color for bringing your stamped images to life. By the end of this lesson, you'll know how to use colored pencils to create a shaded effect for vibrant depth. Markers will help you mimic a dreamy watercolor. Finally Carrie will introduce a series of versatile effects using gel pigment sticks.
A common kitchen item is one of the unexpected products Carrie uses to create new and stunning effects. See how heat tools can vary the look and feel of your stamped images. Plus, learn how to transform a simple swatch of velvet into a show-stopping design with your favorite red rubber stamps!
In this final lesson, Carrie brings together all of the techniques to make a few cards from start to finish. Get familiar with glitter, fluffy and pearl appliqués to make your own custom embellishments. You'll use them to put the final touches on your cards that will truly make them your own.
