Stencil Stamping Technique with Pigment Ink

by | April 22nd, 2016 | 3

Hi everyone!  I’m so excited to share a layout with you today that I’ve created using some of my favorite techniques and of course with some of my favorite Clearsnap products-Pigment Ink and Art Screens!


This layout was super easy to create!  The base of the layout was created using one of our new ColorBox® Art Screens  and ColorBox® Color Pop Pigment Ink for Susan Weckesser.


I chose to do a reverse “stencil-stamping” technique that I’ve used before-quite often!  I began by applying the Pigment Ink directly to the Art Screen in a dabbing motion; only a small section needs to be inked for this technique.


Once the Art Screen is sufficiently inked, I lightly spritzed the stencil with water (for movement).


Next, I flipped the Art Screen over (do so over scrap paper in case water drips) and gently placed the inked side onto my cardstock; gently press the stencil only to avoid ink seeping through the negative portions.  I removed the stencil and had my design!  A little goes a long way, therefore, I was able to “stamp” in two additional areas with the original inking!


I used a “few” die-cuts on this layout! I do this often because it gives me the opportunity to customize my embellishment colors; the leaves, flowers, butterflies, and tag were all customized to fit the page!


I used Susan Weckesser’s Metallic Color Pop Pigment Ink in “Shimmer”  and ColorBox “Gold Shimmer” Embossing Powder to create the butterflies and to stamp the title of the page. Seriously folks, a white piece of paper and Clearsnap is all you’ll need in your scrappy lives! I hoped you’ve enjoyed this fun and easy project!  Please come back for more amazing National Scrapbooking Day projects that we have lined up for you!

About Suzanne Austin

Hi!  My name is Suzanne Austin.  I’m a SAHM of 3 kiddos living on the Gulf Coast in Alabama.  I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for 17 years and counting!  I began scrapping shortly after the birth of our son, and like most haven’t looked back!  It wasn’t hard to become completely immersed in scrapbooking-the process, the art, the design-I am still in awe of the talent that’s showcased in this industry.  My style is pretty versatile (and still ever evolving), but I tend to lean toward the mixed-media and inky side of scrapping.  My motto: Just do it!  I love experimentation with new ideas and techniques. I tend jump in head first-no regrets. I love the enrichment (and therapy :D) this hobby has to lend.  I’m beyond excited to rub elbows with our talented Creative Team for yet another term!
