I love the "Holiday Frame" embossing folder in the Holiday Catalog, and I love pairing it with the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and the Holiday Ornament Framelits! This card is one we will be making at my Punch/Technique Classes in November, so I thought it would be good to share it with you all now!
The "Rock n' Roll" Technique is an easy one, but so pretty! You start with your lightest color, in this case Tempting Turquoise, and ink the entire stamp with that color. You do not stamp your paper yet. Instead, you ink just the outer edges of the same stamp with a darker color, this time Island Indigo. In order to ink all the outer edges, you will "rock n roll" the edges in an almost circular motion on the inkpad. After you have "rock n' rolled" all the edges, then you stamp your image on paper. Voila! A gorgeous, two-toned look!
Note: Be sure to clean your stamp on your Stampin' Scrub before inking the stamp in your lightest color of ink again!
