Cling Wrap Stamping Technique & Video


I am really going out on a limb to try new things (and am very nervous) today to give YouTube a try.  This is all new to me, but you've got to start somewhere!

  I recently had an idea for a stamping technique to create a cool, distressed look with any of your silhouette stamps.  I am loving how it turns out, and how much fun I have when I do this technique, so I wanted to share it with everyone.  It is really fast, easy and best of all, does not involve any special supplies.  I call it Cling Wrap Stamping.

(Watch here or in HD at Youtube.)

Notes about this technique:
  • I was able to get good results using every ink I tried (chalk, dye, pigment, oxide, etc),  so chances are, you have an inkpad that will work.
  • If you are worried your ink may dry out on your stamps before you get it stamped, just huff on it (breathe hot air) to re-wet the ink, and then stamp.
  • I got great results with both rubber and clear stamps!
  • Your results will look a little different every time and that is part of the fun!

Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Haunted House Silhouette, Witch with Broom Silhouette, Sentiment set 1, Just Flyin By sentiment, Distress Ink Black Soot, Kaleidacolor Berry Blaze Ink, Gina Marie Designs square dies, MFT Pierced Square dies, DCWV Citrus Stack papers, American Crafts Pumpkin Patch 6x6 paper pad, Gina K Designs Made with Love 6x6 paper pad



Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

What a fabulous technique and such a great video! You made doing a video look so easy too - I have tried making a video and it was not easy , I found it impossible to get a good angle. So well done fgor that...and the cards you made are fantastic.

Such cute cards! Thank you for sharing your technique and not one but 3 cards! Congratulations on your first video. I did not detect an accent! I appreciate the fact that you kept it brief and to the point!

Heidi Stamps said...

Thanks, Cindi! I appreciate your support AND that you don’t think I have an accent. I don’t think so either, but that is not true of everyone... ;). I am glad you appreciate the brevity.
