Mmm, mmm, mmm! I love me some Ippity!!! Here is a card that I made for SSC's Stamp & Scrap Corner group. The challenge was to use a card featuring the "Spotlight Stamping" Technique. I have included a photo tutorial below :)

"There is No Remedy For Love":

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: Unknown (using up scraps); Neenah
Patterned Paper: MME
Stamps: Ippity
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink (Ranger)
Rhinestones: Kaisercraft
Ribbon: Darice
Other: Pop Dots; Copic Markers (V17, V15, V12; BG02, BG01, BG000; YG03, YG01, YG00; R85, R83, R81; R29, R27, R24; YR09, YR07, YR04)

"Spotlight Stamping" Technique Tutorial:

STEP 1: Stamp 2 identical images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (I use this because I color with Copics).

STEP 2: Take one of the images and color a portion that you would wish to highlight.

STEP 3: Use a punch to cut out the part of the stamped image that you have chosen to highlight. You can use either a circle, a square, an oval, hexagon...whatever shape you wish. I like to turn the punch upside down so I can see where the punch will cut.

STEP 4: Mat the colored stamp punch with dark cardstock to help it pop.

STEP 5: Add pop dots to the back of the newly matted image to give it extra dimension (this step is optional).

STEP 6: Carefully line up your punched piece of the image with the uncolored full image and adhere.

STEP 7: Your image is finished and ready to be used on your project.
Wednesdays are fabulous! I only work 7 hours and today is my birthday, so it is dinner and cake this evening :) I love to mix cake with ice cream....Ice Cream is the only way I eat cake :) If I remember, I will take a picture of it for you. Yum!
