"Autumn Spice" up your card making with BAM stamping! Create this beautiful, yet EASY stamping technique by taking a nod from Emeril.
When I was designing this French Foliage card I needed to keep in mind that I was going to be making 40 of them for an upcoming swap. I wanted the collage look, without having to stamp each of the images separately (which was just too many steps for 40 cards). To solve that...I mounted all of my images onto Stampin' Up!'s clear block (E).
Dawns BAM Stamping Technique
1. Ink up stamp with Cajun Craze ink
2. "Hit" (BAM) the inked up stamp with Early Espresso ink.
Tip: only "BAM" it once. If you BAM it twice, you get BAM, BAM. And you want Emeril, not the Flintstones!
3. Stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock
4. Optional - sponge edges with Early Espresso
5. Optional - sponge Cajun Craze ink over stamped images, leaving some "white" space
6. Optional - sponge More Mustard into the remaining "white" spaces
By the way - this was one of the FREE make & take cards we've been doing at my workshops and clubs this past month. Just image all of the BAMming going on! It's been a huge hit and tons of fun to see everyone experience their own BAM!
