Hello everyone! It's Nichol here for another "In the Details" for Friday! I stamped and embossed images from the Enveloper Kindness, Enveloper Hello, and a greeting from the Congrats stamp sets on smooth white cardstock using white embossing powder. An Ink Duster brush is a fantastic way to apply the Waffle Flower Oh Happy Day, Chirp Chirp, and New Fish In Pond over the embossed areas for embossed resist. The Ink Duster makes applying the ink smoothly without blotches SO super easy! It’s a fantastic way to create some great effects with dye inks!

Watch it below or on our Youtube Channel Nuvo Crystal Drops are a quick and effective way to embellish the Enveloper Kindness and Enveloper Hello stamped and embossed images on these birthday greeting cards. Drops of all sizes can be created with the Nuvo drops and they add a bit of dimension, lots of color and so much interest to these images! The Nuvo drops work a lot like Glossy Accents as well. A dimensional greeting die cut from cardstock adhered to Fun Foam using the Celebrate Word die was finished with a layer of Nuvo Crystal Drops to add color and shine to each sentiment. Each card was finished with a stamped birthday greeting on the inside of each card using a Balloon Messages stamp set sentiment and the Oh Happy Day, Chirp Chirp, and New Fish In Pond inks. Supplies

Hello everyone!! It’s Channin here and I’ve got a new technique video to share with you all today! This time I’m using the new Enveloper Kindness Stamp Set to demonstrate a simple watercoloring technique! I love the new Enveloper series created by Helen Dardik! Her bold style is just awesome and in today’s video I show you how you to somewhat recreate Helen’s masterpieces with a very simple watercoloring technique!

[TT Video] Reactivating Stamped Ink with Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel. First I stamped the bear and floral stamp from the Enveloper Kindness Stamp Set on a 5x7 panel of watercolored paper. To get all the colors, I actually I inked up different portions of the stamp with four distressed inks (mustard seed, peacock feathers, spiced marmalade, and picked raspberry) and stamped it several time s with my MISTI. I then created a quick mask and the stamped the other floral stamp from the Enveloper Kindness Stamp Set on either side of the bear in the same fashion. After I stamped by border, I reactivated the stamped ink by dampening the images with water and a small brush and then moving the ink around to create a watercolored look. When I had finished all my watercoloring I stamped and white embossed my sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and it and my panel to my card base. Lastly, I wanted share a card that I created with the same technique only simplified by using only one ink color and the Enveloper Ok Stamp Set. I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you next week. ~Channin Supplies: Enveloper Kindness Stamp Set
