It’s that time again: Studio AE Blog Hop time.
I love the 10th!
Today, I’m hopping with Technique Tuesday’s Studio AE team to celebrate the Memories of Home by Ali Edwards stamp set. The set is November’s Studio AE set.
It’s pretty spiffy, I think!
My first inclination was to make a layout with it for the hop today, but I decided instead to make a Christma-inspired card with a little technique.
All the stamping was completed with the set, other than the hearts. They are from Ali’s Love, Ali stamp set (also from Technique Tuesday).
Look real close and you’ll see the house has a bit of an two-toned effect going on. Super easy technique, and the house in the Studio AE stamp set is perfect for it.
Start with a light ink color.
Tap it on the stamp (about half of it.)
Take a darker color and stamp it on the rest of the stamp.
And don’t worry if it bleeds together.
The end result will be a cool, two-toned house.
I enjoyed messing around a little with this technique and tried with a bunch of different color combos.
You could take this same card design and just change out the colors for a whole lot of different looks. Love that.
And that’s all.
