Stamping Techniques and Tips from Jackie Bolhuis at Klompenstampers

Today’s technique is called RETIFORM.  Why?  I have no clue????  But, it’s been called that for a long long time….  I love when “old” techniques come back again!

Let’s start with the video, and then I will share pictures of the cards and the recipe!


Here is the card!

Before we get into the details about this card, I want to share something fun.  Many of you know that I have been a demonstrator for a LONG TIME…..since 1995.  My kids were just 2, 4, and 7 when I started.  They always loved to stamp and back in 2002, they made these cards!!!!

Old stamping technique is back--it's called Retiform.

I don’t save a lot of things (I am a pitcher!) but I have about a dozen cards that the kids made over the years that I did save.  They are actually dated on the back–3/31/2002 and signed by both Jessica and Jared!  That is why I can truly say this is an old technique!!!!

Make sure to watch the video to see how to do this technique–it’s easy and does not take a lot of supplies!
