Welcome to Technique Tuesdays.

Technique Tuesday Blog

We are a very enthusiastic bunch of demonstrators from around the world that love to share what we do.  Today is Technique Tuesday and today we are focusing on Techniques with the Stamparatus.  I know you will find this a very useful and creative Blog Hop.  I decided to use a stamp set and die that is retiring.   I am going to miss this bundle.  If you like it too, get it now before it is too late.

Today I want to show you how to make templates and how to mass produce with them. 

  I created this card using the Stamparatus and templates.  I had originally  designed a card class.  I showed each participant how to make their own templates to make  all the cards in the class.  It created ease for them.  Another use, is when you are making a bunch of all the same cards.  Some people use the stamparatus  just for sentiments and use the template technique.  Once you get the hang of this, you will find multiple uses for templates and your stamping..

I also showed how to sponge the sunset, mountains and water using the amazing blending brushes.

I thought it would be a good Idea to show my template set up for the Stamparatus.

Although this card uses basic measurements, here they are again.

Night of Navy:  4 1/4" x 11" scored @ 5 1/2"

Basic White 2 @ 4" x 5 1/4", 2 3/4" x 4 1/2", 1 1/4" x 2 1/4" for sentiment 

Now here is the video that will show you how I created the template, blending the background and made the card.
