Northern Lights Stamping Technique & Sleigh Ride Edgelits

The Northern Lights Stamping Technique has been on my list to share with my Stamping Club for quite some time and last month I finally got around to it.  Long Distance Club Members will get their packets this month.

Northern Lights Stamping Technique

  • Supplies: 
    • Stamping Sponges, various Ink pads (Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy)
  • Instructions:
    • On a panel of Whisper White, sponge ink colors to the top 3/4's of the panel starting lightest to darkest inks (Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry). 
    • NOTE: Use more of a swipe and/or circular motion (vs pouncing). 
    • Depending on the size of your panel, you may want to add additional swipes of sponging
    • With a circular motion, sponge Night of Navy around the top and two sides of the panel filling in and around the rest of the top 3/4's area. Really press hard to get a deep "night" color.  Occasionally lightly swipe into/over the previous colors.  This is where the magic happens.  There is no right or wrong way.  It might take a few practice panels to get the look you want.  
    • Stamp tree image with black ink
    • Add finishing touches:
      • For a winter scene...stamp snowflakes with Whisper White craft ink over the sky and finish with a panel of snow and Sleigh Ride Edgelit at the bottom of the card.
      • For a summer scene...use a Gel Pen to add stars to the sky and sponge Old Olive to the bottom of the card for grass, or add a panel of grass and trees edgelit at the bottom of the card.
    • Every time you do it, it will look different.  Have fun experimenting!
