Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping Episode 20: featuring the All Good Things Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog for the second post today; In this post we will be talking about this weeks Simple Stamping Card.  This week the retiring list was announced if you missed that post you can see it here.  Sadly on that list was the All Good Things Stamp Set, but also on that list was the 2017-2019 In Color Stampin' Write Markers.  I don't think a lot of people realize what you can do with the Stampin' Write Markers so for this weeks simple stamping card and video I wanted to show you one great technique that you can use these markers for.
Did you know that you could use them to stamp multiple colors on one image all at once?  If you are just starting out you may have not known this little trick.  This technique is a great way to get more bang for your buck.  You basically get five ink pads with just one small purchase.  I used all five of the out going in colors one this one image.  I did have to use one additional color to do the image.  In addition to the 2017-2019 In Colors was a Soft Suede marker for the tree trunk, this way it looks like a natural tree.  You can see exactly how I accomplished this in the video tutorial below.  Please remember that you may have to click here to see the video.  Some email servers will not show the embedded video.

Tips & Tricks: 

I colored the image in all the colors all at once and then I huffed (a couple deep breaths) onto the inked up image to remoisten the ink on the stamp.  By doing this it will allow you to get a nice impression each time.  The warmth of your breath helps the ink to moisten back which allows it to transfer.  
When you first start stamping you may want to do a image just like this but you don't own a stamp positioner, or you may not have all the ink pads.  You probably only own a few supplies so the Stampin' Write Markers are a great addition to add to your collection.   Because, you can get them and you have every color of ink in this small slender tube.  Plus another great thing is you can purchase them all at once in the Many Marvelous Marker set or you can also buy them in color family for a little cheaper price up front.  And for some beginning stampers this is very important.  The in color families always come out in new sets of five every year.  Each group is out for two years before they are retired.  This year the leaving colors are the 2017-2019 In Colors (Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide, Powder Pink, and Fresh Fig).  They will probably sale fast since they have been on the retiring list and they are very popular colors.

This is one of the best things for new stampers to learn because it will open up a whole new world for your crafting and stamping.  I also used the whisper white note cards to produce today's simple stamping card.
