Darth Vader Technique

When I first started stamping in 2008, this was one of the first techniques I was taught . I’m sure there are other names for it but that’s what we called it, the Darth Vader (from Star Wars, for those that don’t know) Technique.

The reason this was one of the first techniques I was taught is because it uses Stampin’ Write markers to ink the stamp, and at the time, you could buy these markers individually, making it a cheaper way to get more colours in my stash.

Both the stamps were inked with markers on this card. So why is it called the Darth Vader Technique? Once the ink is on the stamp, it’s important to “huff” onto the stamp, the humidity from your breath keeps the ink damp enough to create a nice clear image.

I did a video of making this card on my Facebook page this morning – you can find a link to the page on the sidebar, so please drop in and say hi and leave a comment.

The card used the Elegantly Said stamp set, Scalloped Contours Dies and the Hand-Penned Designer Series Papers.

Happy stamping

Favourite Stampin’ Up! Colour??

My very favourite Stampin’ Up! Colour is Rich Razzleberry. Yesterday I was chatting online with the lovely Clare from Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Support and she gave me this colour combo to try out – Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake and Champagne. So, this is what I came up with…….

The strip of Vellum has been embossed with the Timber 3D embossing folder, the leaves die cut using the Intricate Leaves Dies, and the stamped leaves were inked in Crumb Cake and then sponged around the edge with Rich Razzleberry ink on a sponge dauber. The stamp set is called Gorgeous Leaves.


Leave me a comment below and let me know what your favourite Stampin’ Up! Colour is? Do you have a favourite combination using that colour? I love hearing about all the different favourite colours, it is hard to pick just one though.

Someone decided I had done enough stamping after this card, and it was time my attention was elsewhere. We had a lovely snuggle with the sunshine streaming in through the window.

Happy stamping,

Chris 💜
