One of the many things I love about stamping is that everything old is always everything new for me. One of the very first techniques that I learned is the rock and roll technique. It’s an oldie, but definitely a goodie. Paired with some of the coolest stuff out there, you’re project will pop right off the page.
First I ran the Garden Green cardstock through my Big Shot using the Flower Garden Embossing Template and then stamped with the Kindness Matters stamp set (available in the catalog – but can also be FREE with a Sale-A-Bration order). It’s a simple but fun card. Below are two samples – one with just stamping the image off in one color and then punching it up with the rock and roll technique.
Here I stamped off the butterflies in Garden Green for a lighter shade before adding the Thanks in fully inked Garden Green.
And this one is taken to another level. I rocked and rolled the butterflies in So Saffron and Garden Green for a little pop. I also used the direct to paper technique on the Garden Green cardfront to give it a little more depth.
Now it’s your turn!
