Watercolored Stenciling 3 Stamped, Stenciled and Glittered!  Video Tutorial

I have some news for you today, but before I get to that, let’s talk about this project!  Our newest class, “Technique Toolbox: creative stenciling”  (see the original TT class here) premiered early and free for StampNation Members and the ink, glitter and cardstock has been FLYING over there!

Between Lessons 1 and 5 our members have made over 135 cards (Inky Fingers counted this up on Saturday) – AMAZING, right?

Today, Lesson 8 was posted and it was all about Watercoloring and Stencils.  I twisted the technique and stamped with the stencil, added water, ink, then glitter paint and the result is a fabulous background.

I finished off the card with all upcoming dies and stamps from the Young at Heart SOA Collection…more on that after you watch the video!

Are you loving the sneak peeks on this card as much as I am?

The Young at Heart Collection – ready for some deets?

I’ve been saying “the very end of January” for this release.  We are ending up in a bit of a time crunch here, so are you going to be terribly angry if we are a few days later than the “end of January”?  I’d rather push the date out now and let you all know about it than not be ready or have to change the date at the last minute.

Be sure you are on the WAIT LIST to be the first to get the sales link when it goes live.  It’s looking like February 3rd for the release date.

What to expect:

Week of January 25- you’ll see a few more sneak peeks.

Beginning January 30, we’ll be showing you the collection and sharing lots of videos.  You WILL see everything in this collection over the course of the week, so be sure to view all the videos to see the amazing products in this collection.

This collection includes:

  • 4 stamp sets
  • 2 sets of dies
  • 1 stencil

There are a couple surprises coming with this collection as well.  Stay tuned!
