Video Series: One Stamp, Four Ways – Card #1

One Stamp Four Ways, Card #1

CLICK HERE to list all videos in this series.

Hi All!

Welcome to the start of my new series, One Stamp Four Ways! In case you missed any of my previous series, you can find them on the Video Series page.

I’ll be back each Friday to use the Penny Black Burst of Blooms stamp in a different way. It’s a widely available stamp at these online retailers: Simon Says Stamp, Ellen Hutson, Blitsy, Scrapbook.com, and Amazon.

One Stamp Four Ways, Card #1

For the first card, I used just two Zig Clean Color markers: Black and Light Blue. I have a few tips and also a major mess-up that you’ll enjoy, lol. Here is a close-up of the flowers:

    Darlene, this is such a striking card. I can hardly wait for my stamp set to arrive so I can try it too. I was most impressed with how well you rectified your mess-up. It’s amazing how persistence tends to pay off. That little sand block has gotten me out of a few mess-ups too.

    Gorgeous cards Darlene! Your smudging shows us we’re not the only ones who have that problem. Your remedy seams to work well. Thanks your for sharing a really stunning technique using this flower.

    When you were sanding–I assume some in the blue area, too–I kept thinking, “Don’t go back in with your blue marker over those spots!” Had you done so, the roughened paper would have grabbed the color and caused even more grief, since I doubt it would have blended out. Thank you for “listening” to me! LOL Seriously, I never thought I would like black flowers, but with that purple tinge to this color, they really look elegant. I know of at least one crafter who doesn’t like to use water with the Zigs, because the colors can change pretty dramatically. But I figure, if you practice with them & know what they do, you can use that to your advantage, just as with any other supply. Thank you for leaving your oopsy in–good to know to check the embossed areas before you go patting on them! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Darlene! 🙂 ~ Andrea

    What a great card…can hardly wait to try it. I love, love the black/purple look of the flowers. I do not have that paper, but I do have some Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I will use that.
    Love the card Darlene and love how you use the sanding block to erase the boo boo;s.
    Thanks for the tutorial.
    Hugs, Dee in Oklahoma

    WOW! This card is absolutely stunning. I was so surprised with the colour. Love it. I am wondering how you are going to “top” this card with the next three??? I am sure you will manage. Thanks Darlene for yet another great video.

    Great video – the oops and all. Just placed my order with SSS because you’re right, the stamp is beautiful and can be used for so many occasions. Thanks, as always, for the great inspiration and techniques.

    I have a lot of Penny Black stamps, all mounted. I have all the cute ones like the bear riding the bike carrying penguins on the back and one has a Christmas tree. I don’t have this one and I really like it. I like how you did the purple/black. I didn’t think I would like it but I do. I love when people include their oops in their videos. It’s nice to know we are all human and it’s not just us guys who don’t have a blog and haven’t been stamping for eons that make mistakes too. Then we don’t feel quite so bad when we make a mistake.
    FL has been on my mind too. My mom’s side of the family had tons of relatives but most of them have passed away since we held those family reunions at a fair grounds. Some of the ones who are left live in FL and that includes my 23 year old niece who thinks she is invincible because she’s not worried at all while her mom who lives in CT is panicking. I pray that everyone is okay.
