What is your Favorite Technique

Okay so this group has been very quite so I thought I would try to
spark up a conversation with the group.
So, what is your favorite stamping technique? Mine, well I absolutely
LOVE those glitter gel pens. I am not a big fan of glitter because
once you use it, you pretty much wear it for a quite a long time.
Then I discoverd those glitter gel pens and now I glitter
everything.
So. . . .inquiring minds wanna know what is your favorite technique?

I like lots of techniques but...I bought the Wizard last week so have been playing with that whenever I have a spare minute or 60. I discovered my cuttlebug embossing folders work in it so may dump the cuttlebug so I have more space for other things in my craft room. We never have enough stamps or accessories, do we?

You want us to choose one?? ;-) I still love embossing, an old favorite! I do enjoy the glitter options - I use the Stickles for projects. I do have glitter to make acetate transparency images with.

Okay so I have to admit, I do not know what the Wizard is? I am really not sure what the cuttlebug looks like either, I have heard about it and I really like what it does, but would I use it a lot? Is the Wizard a dry embossing machine then?
Glad to see that you still around I haven't heard or seen you in a bit.

So are you talking dry embossing or embossing with the watermark pad, embossing powder, heat gun and well heat burns (haha)? I enjoy embossing too, but, like I said earlier I like to keep it simple. I LOVE the stickles too. I love thier colors and the fact that you get glitter without wearing it.
Whar are acetate transparency images? Do you stamp on acetate and then glitter? Do you ues the stickles for that?
Yea I know inquiring minds want to know.

I've been stamping since somewhere in the mid-1980s. My all-time favorite technique remains heat embossing. I also like dry embossing, especially coloring in with chalks, and occasionally will use the dry embossing stencil with stencil past for a special look. Also recently I've been using gold/silver/rainbow colored outline stickers (one trade name is Class A'Peels) for nifty highlight accents. I will try new techniques I see used in submissions to various stamping magazines to see whether I will use it on a regular basis.

Yes, I'm still around. Not much going on here usually but I get on when I can to see if anyone has left a message.
Below is a link to the website that has a video about what the Wizard can do. My favorites are segments 8, 9 and 10.

'm making 60 cards for my niece to use as Thank You cards for her weddinggifts. I'm using the Textile Texture embossing folder as the background onvanilla cardstock, layering the Thank You on top of that in burgundy andembossing with gold powder around the edges of that layer. Simple and easy,but elegant.

Hey Linda I have never heard fo the Claa A'Peels before where do you get them. It has been so long since I dry embossed, I am doing a swap this week so I think that I will do that. I can't wait now. Thanx for the idea.

Wow you are busy with those thank you notes aren't you? Can you send a picture when you are all done? I would love to see them.
Thanx so much for sending the links, I will have to check them out tonight.
Funny how we all get busy, but yet can find time to try new things out with our stamping. I was a vendor at an all day Scrapbooking event for the local ECFE and the 8 x 8 page that we did was using DCWV cardstock and stamping on it with versa mark and then sanding it. So cool the ladies loved it and I sold out all of my cardstock. Okay so enough about me I could go on and on.
I am glad to see that you are still around. Have a specTACular day ladies.

Embossing with pigment ink (of whatever color/variety), embossing powder, and the heat gun. DH loves to help, because it requires a power tool :-) Actually, my dad saw me embossing and had me buy a heat gun for him to use in the shop! When we got married, DH and I made our own thank you notes. We embossed "Thank You" in the center using silver ink and clear powder, then masked it and stamped a swirls 'n' hearts background stamp (Stampin' Up) using clear embossing ink and a white pearl embossing powder.
I don't use stickles because they don't provide adequate coverage for me, though I suppose you could. Take an acetate transparency and stamp an image on it using Staz-On (I always use black for a stained- glass effect). Using a dries-clear glue with a fine metal tip on the bottle (tip can be purchased with the glue, don't recall the brand off- hand), "color" the areas of the image you want to be a certain color, then apply the glitter to the glue (yes, this is the messy kind of glitter!). Repeat with all areas of image and glitter colors. Then let dry -- a long time! Cut the image out, flip over, and it looks like stained glass and can be affixed to the card. This works best with bold images, like a dragonfly with big sections on the wings, or a stained glass image stamp.

I do like the embossing with the pigment inks and clear powder, it really gives you more options and a color tha you like.
Wow I never thougt of that. I have stamped on acetate and colored in with sharpie markers and loved that. I will have to try the messing glitter way.
Thanx so much for all of the tips. Now I know what I will be doing this weekend. Now to figure out a way to share with you guys. Have a truly specTACular day.

I haven't done this in ages. I'm going to try it using gold metallic pigment ink and embossing it with clear powder before doing the glitter. Thanks for reminding me of this technique. Funny how we move on and forget some of the older things.

This reminds me of a technique I loved when I first learned it. Stamp and heat emboss an image on a piece of clear or light shade vellum. Emboss carefully as vellum can be touchy when heated. Flip the image and color it in on the back with markers. Coloring on the back means you don't have to be quite so precise at staying in the lines!! Flip it back over and this also looks like stained glass.

Oh Shannon you are so welcome, I know that once you look you will be hooked and absolutely love the stamps and more importantly papers. I was excited to see that the papers are actually achievable, I mean 5 sheets of 12 x 12 and a sheet of diecuts for $6.95. At lease I know that I will use those 5 sheets instead of buying a bunch of paper I will not use, I have done that so many times.
Okay enough about me,I am very glad that you recieved everything okay.

Hey Linda,
Aww yes, thanx for the reminder, I think that that was one of the first things I learned when it came to embossing and well I flub at it so I told myself never again, however, now that you remind I am going to challenge myself to try it again. Wish me luck. Ha ha

I never said that you had to pick one - ha ha. I was just seeing what everyone else does. I am such k.i.s.s. (keep it simple stamper) stamper that I wanted to try to step outside of my box. Which by the way is very scary for me. So. . . do you like punches? Do you use them? Do you use diecuts?
I tried the transparency thingy and well flubbed on my first 10, yes you read that right 10, but I am going to try again for the family easter cards. Wish me luck.

I use corner punches on occasion. I just acquired a couple of shape punches but don't foresee using them very much. I don't use diecuts.
Did it work for your Easter cards? What problem(s) were you encountering when you said it didn't work? Perhaps I can help you to troubleshoot! If you want to send me your mailing address ( snipped-for-privacy@gmail.com), I could send you a sample card, if you think that would help.
