Technique Tuesday

We've got a fun technique for you today at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration. It's called 3 In A Row. The idea behind this technique is that you ink your stamp once and then stamp three times.

I've used this technique before to give the illusion of falling leaves or a bouncing ball. If you want to line your images up in a perfect line, I recommend using the Stamp-A-Majig. There's a great tutorial featuring it today at SSINK. I'd also be happy to give you live demonstration of it, if you'd like. It really is a fabulous tool; once you figure out how to use it!

Today's card features many new items from the Occasions Catalog. The star and the greeting are both from the Perfect Pennants stamp set. The greeting was cut out using the Starburst Framelits. Of course, there's that yummy Retro Fresh This & That Designer Washi Tape. A new favorite is the Gold Sequin Trim. The sequins actually come on a string, but you can carefully pull them off and use them individually. They are the perfect size to use a Glue Dot to adhere them. I used the smallest Deco Labels framelits (found in the Annual Catalog) to layer the Tangerine Tango behind the greeting.
