Stamping Techniques and Tips from Jackie Bolhuis at Klompenstampers

Once I started playing with this new bundle…I just could not stop!!!!  It was so addicting to make all different lemons, limes, oranges, and even a grapefruit!  But there were a few things that I figured out as I was playing that gave my fruit more life–more texture and dimension, so I thought it would make a great Thursday Techniques & Tips Video.  Sorry, it got a little long, but there were just so many tips I wanted to share!

Here is the card featured in the video

Video filled with tips for stamping with the Lemon Zest Bundle. How to get lots of texture and dimension in your projects--quickly and easily.

In the video I show how I:

  • Used the LEMON BUILDER PUNCH to line up the different images without wasting a lot of cardstock
  • Stamped the lemon slices to get the peeling darker
  • Added “shimmer” to the lemon slices
  • Added the texture to the lemon peel
  • Tied & adhered the bow
  • Used the Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder
  • and more…

Here is the inside of the card:

Also–as with most of my cards, my cardstock has layers cut using 1/8th’s.  Does this drive you crazy?  Last weeks video had all kinds of paper cutting tips and how easy it is to cut using 1/8th’s–so thought I would add to this post in case you missed it:

Here are a couple of close-up pictures to show the shimmer on the slices and the texture on the peel:
