I am so excited to finally share with you some news that I have been keeping secret!  I made a video for Craftsy over the summer and it finally launched TODAY!  The video is "40 Techniques Every Stamper Should Know" and covers a multitude of techniques I have learned in my almost 20 years of stamping.  

In my class, you'll discover innovative, artistic ways to enhance your stamping skills no matter your experience! You'll learn the best methods for using stamps and inks, coloring with a variety of media, and stretching your stamps with masking and partial stamping. Then, create trendy textured backgrounds with effects such as chalkboard, foiling and watercolor.

I'll begin by showing you tips on how to get clear, beautiful stamp impressions every time. Then, you'll learn a unique shadow technique to create charming, dimensional designs.
Next, you'll discover tricks for stretching your stamps and making diverse, delightful backgrounds. I'll show you how to "kiss" multiple stamps for a wide variety of playful patterns. Then, you'll put your masking techniques to use to make stunning scenes simple!

Leave a trail of pretty paper projects! You'll see how stamps can transform textured and colored paper and how to add amazing accents with vellum and book paper. I'll also show you how patterned paper can create incredible color effects with your stamps – without using markers or pens.

Now that your paper is perfection, you'll learn how to make extraordinary designs with different types of ink. I'll help you create images that pop off the page using pigmented, glue and solvent inks and a vibrant alcohol–resist technique. Soon you'll be able to add trendy, wow–worthy effects like watercolor, chalkboard, foil and so much more!
To increase the vibrancy of your stamp designs, I'll teach you how colored pencils can add bold, dynamic depth to your paper creations. For a softer, dreamy watercolor effect, you'll learn a trick with markers. Then, use gel pigment sticks to unlock new possibilities for projects with eye–catching dimension and radiant color.

Next, we'll turn up the heat with simple tricks for stunning effects. I'll help you use a supply in your kitchen to add a vintage effect to your stamped impressions, and even achieve a "sealing wax" effect with embossing powder. Plus, you'll discover how to transform velvet with a burning technique using your favorite red rubber stamps.

Lastly, I'll help inspire your inner paper artist by showing examples that combine all of the techniques into fabulous card projects. Then, you'll learn to embellish with my favorite fun and elegant appliqués for perfect finishing touches that are truly your own!
Join me in 40 Techniques Every Stamper Should Know and expand your stamping skills for innovative, impressive designs you can incorporate into all your future projects.

I can't wait help you make amazing stamping projects and expand your creative possibilities. See you in class!
