Have you seen the Northern Lights???

Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means…..I have an amazing technique to share with you!!! This was blows my mind because you start out with just three colors but it creates so many more! Seeing the Northern Lights is on my Bucket List too! Until then, I shall just make the Northern Lights in my craft room!

Northern Lights Technique, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Supplies Needed: Sponge Daubers, Tempting Turquoise Ink, Rich Razzleberry Ink, Daffodil Delight Ink Pad, Night of Navy Ink Pad, Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set, Label Collections Framelits, Chalk Marker or White Gel Pen

You will need a piece of Whisper White cardstock and the size will depend on the size of Framelit you would like to use. I used a piece that is 5-1/2″ x 4-1/2.” Starting with the Daffodil Delight and your sponge dauber, you will make do up and down making a stripe. Then move over about a 1/2″ and make another one, continuing across the cardstock. Next you will do the same with your Rich Razzleberry and then Tempting Turquoise. Be sure to overlap the colors a bit because that is how your will get a little orange and green in there too! Don’t worry if it looks super bright and colorful at this time! That is the way it should look! Using one of the trees from the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set, stamp it in the center with Stazon! Now you can pick the size of Framelit that you wish to use and cut it out with your Big Shot! After you have cut it out, you will take the Night of Navy Ink Pad and Sponge Dauber and fill in the bottom portion using the stamped “ground” as your guide. Also, I brushed the edges of the entire image as well. You can go over the entire image very lightly with the Night of Navy as well for a more subtle look. Then using your Chalk Marker or Signo White Gel Pen, makes dots all over your card for a starry look! Now you are all done and you can add it to your card. I layered mine onto a piece of Basic Gray that was ran through my Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and then only a piece of Night of Navy. I added a little Silver 1/8″ Ribbon too! In case some of the instruction listed above were a little confusing, here is a Video Tutorial for you to see this card in action!

I hope you enjoyed this technique and try it out! I want to thank Kay Kalthoff for this fabulous idea! Also, be sure to leave a comment down below and let me know what you think!

Happy Stampin’
