Default Page 51 in the new Catalog

I think I may have asked this before in another section, but am still not getting the right answer. In the upper right corner is a beautiful snowflake card. I'm curious as to how the white area of the card was done. Someone suggested "rock and roll", but Stampin' Up said that is not it, and is also reseraching the card to try to find out how it was done. Could it have been done with the new "airbrush" like tool? And where would the white ink come from? Can anyone help? I'm anxious to make a similar card for my Christmas cards?

thanks!

Could the second color be sponged on? Like ink it in AA, then sponge on the darker color?

i just figured that they sponged on the ink colors with daubers directly onto the stamp, then stamped it. There is nothing listed in the "ingredients" about white ink..unless i missed it..

I like that card, too. From the recipe for it, I don't know either - good luck finding the answer. I always thought it was white craft ink just sponged in the middle of the stamped image.

It does look to be sponged on. The 2 ink colors listed are Amethyst & Violet. I believe the snowflake was inked with Amethyst, then the Violet was sponged on around the outer part of it. Similar to rock n' roll, but with a more controlled result.

Personally, after looking at that card, I don't think they listed all the supplies used in the back. To ME it looks like they might have sponged on some Craft White ink lightly, because if you look at the edges of that white part, they look sponged. They might have used the sponge dauber and then embossed it with clear embossing powder, which IS listed in the "recipe". I did a quick "replica", but I don't have the Craft White pad, I have an older Color Box "Frost White" which doesn't seem as 'white' as the example in the book, but it does give the same "look" as in the catty. (Also made me realized that my "clear" embossing powder isn't really CLEAR....I need to get some from SU!)

When I checked on line catalogue, they are showin dazzling diamond, and clear emboss....do you think perhaps they have used the glitter diamond on that portion of the stamp that shows white? Just a though

Well I just had to see what the buzz was about and I think I agree that the instructions are missing a very key element. What that is, I certainly couldn't guess. Good luck and can't wait to find out.

I think the large snowflake was inked with Almost Amethyst and the craft white was sponged on in the center and then it was stamped and clear embossed over the top of the white. Then they stamped with the Vintage Violet on a separate piece and the center was cut out and popped up on dimensionals in the center. The dazzling diamond glitter was used on the top of the brads with a glue dot.

It kind of looks like torn vellum over the large snowflake and the center snowflake was stamped and cut out and then mounted over the top.

ok, this bugged me too, so I tried it out.....the one on the left is the rock n' roll technique (with Amethyst on the bottom and then rolled in Lovely Lilac), the one on the right is inked all over with Amethyst and then Lovely Lilac is sponged on the tips of the snowflake.

I love this card, too and now I am more confused on how to make it. Are you saying that you sponge the lovely lilac onto the stamp? I have never heard of this but if that is what you did, it is such a smart idea. Thanks!!!

yes, I sponged the lilac directly on the stamp after I'd already inked it with almost amethyst......it gives you more control than using the rock and roll technique.

You guys ROCK! I knew someone would come up with the answer. I'm still interested to see what Stampin' Up has to say, but for now, this makes me VERY happy.

I'd always assumed it was done with the rock-n-roll technique. Thanks for the information, and the pics!!!

I'd say this is exactly how it was sone....they may have also used a stipple brush.

This technique was posted earlier, I don't remember where, however, I tried both techniques. The one that came out closest to the picture in the catalog was stamping the snowflake first, then sponging on white craft ink to the center of the snowflake to get the faded look. So I think the white craft was left out of the receipe.

If you go to the online catalog, you can zoom in very, very close on that card. Tara (cannontc) is correct, it's either sponged or rock and rolled.

Should have been more specific before I hit reply. It's inked in Amethyst then rolled in Violet (or sponged in Violet but my gut is telling me its rolled because when you zoom in you can see the texture of the pad that the violet ink leaves)

I could be wrong, but I think maybe the embossing powder and the glitter were used on the brads. If you heat brads with your heat tool, then dip them in the embossing powder, they will melt the powder without having to use versamark. Then I suppose you could dip it in glitter and heat it again to set it, kind of like Heat and Stick powder. Or the glitter may stick to the warm embossing powder by itself, without reheating. But I am pretty sure that is where the embossing powder was used.
I agree, I think the stamp was originally inked in amethyst, then they sponged (or rock-n-rolled) on the violet. It is a really neat effect. Guess I need to get the Snowflake set now!

I vote stipple brush technique. Here's the direct link to zoom in to the card: http://catalogs.shoplocal.com/stampi...=2006_2007_51a

When you zoom in, there are little dots all over the snowflake-- you wouldn't get such precise dots from an inkpad nor from a sponge. Plus it was a technique we did at Convention... and we used Almost Amethyst and Vintage Violet!

I had forgotten about that technique... but I have to agree with Belinda! That is definitely the look you get with the stipple brush directly on the stamp.

Very good detective work! I would have never thought to use a stipple brush, also I didn't realize you could zoom in that close to samples........I wish you could do that on the SS magazine

do you have a might craft pad or the white stazon....
I would suggest trying and inking the snowflake with the lighter color ( white craft of stazon) then inking the edges with the darker color,
The part that is popped up is what looks to me to be embossed not the whole image...
another way I would try this is as above stamp the image in the dark color and then sponge the white craft or stazon over the top... ( it looks like the whole middle is actually white even the paper ) does that make some sense...
when i come home from getting my son( prek 9-12) I will try to do a sample of some kind for you in what i am tryign to say
