Stamping 1.0 at Paper Source
If you're a creative person you probably love Paper Source as much as I do. So many beautiful papers, fun stamps, stamping supplies and friendly helpful staff.
I've dabbled in rubber stamping but have never taken a class. So when I saw Paper source offered a Stamping 1.0 Class I signed up. Look at all the fun stamping supplies we got to work with. There were 4 of us in the class and Erin our instructor was very nice, peppy and informative. My class mates consisted of two friends who work at Starbucks and a tween.
Starting top left- We worked with Colorbox Pigment ink and embossed it with clear powder. This was to get us use to the heat gun and to see what embossing is.
Middle left- Colorbox Chalk ink. It's just like using chalk on a chalkboard. A lighter softer look.
Bottom left- Colorbox Metallic ink using the heat tool. No embossing. I love the metallic inks.
Top right- Stamping over printed words.
Bottom right- Glitter embossing powder. This was one of the class favorites. Glitter will never go out of style.
Middle left- Versamark ink, embossing with clear, white and coloured powders. This gives an almost velvety look.
Bottom left- Using the Versamark clear ink with gold resin and glittered embossing powder.
Middle right- Brilliance inks. This is suppose to give a bit of shimmer to the look. As our instructor said, the products we were using for the class are well loved so they might not work as well as if you bought the products brand new.
Bottom right- neon inks.
Middle left- Quiver effect. Stamping one image over top another.
Bottom left- Cannon repeat pattern without re-inking. Ink your stamp and then just keep stamping until you run out of ink or until you have as many images as you want.
Top right- Delicata Gold on dark and light papers. This gold gives a radiant metallic finish that will not lose its luster.
Middle right- using Souffle pens. Gives an embossed look to your image.
Bottom right- Glue pad and chunky glitter. Stamp onto the glue pad, sprinkle glitter on top and it stays! We all loved this one. Who doesn't love glitter?!
