Default Thank You For Being Awesome!

Hi all, we are thrilled to have Teri Anderson back as our guest designer, so will let her now take the stage!


Hi again, Simon friends! Teri here, and Iím excited to visit again!

Today, I wanted to share with you a really simple technique for using clear stamps. Rather than using just the front side of a stamp, stamp with the back side, too!

This technique is really fun with stamps of images (like flowers and leaves) that are mostly line art!

I created this artsy little card by stamping with the back side of the flower (from the Poppy Sentiments set from Technique Tuesday).

The stamping went down like this:

First, I flipped my stamp over. And then I applied red ink to flower portion of it. (By the way, I got a little overzealous with the inking on my card and got a little bit on the stem, but thatís OK. That extra ink just adds to the artsy look of the technique.)

Then I stamped on paper and got something like this.

I used the exact same stamping technique with this card here.

Only this time I used a leaf (from the I Give Thanks stamp set from Technique Tuesday) and an orange ink pad.

Thanks for having me today! And I hope you consider giving the technique a try!

Thanks so much for reading, and thanks again to Teri for being a guest today!
