Velveteen Stamping Technique in The CLASSroom

How cool is this technique?  Read on to find out how to create the velveteen look!

On my daily visit to The CLASSroom I was thrilled to find this fun  Velveteen Stamping Technique   the amazingly talented Karolyn Loncon from Paper Therapy.  Karolyn's clean and simple style has earned her many accolades - she was crowned a Stamping Royalty winner in 2011!

Check out Karolyn's card.....sweet eh?

Finished Project #1

Please refer to Karolyn's tutorial for full instructions as my card is an improvised version:

I did not have a suitable background stamp (I actually only have one background stamp and it is French script!) so I used a 2'" x 2" chevron stripe for my background....hence the 2" panel versus a full card!

Karolyn used stamps that have a good amount of solid space. Again, my supply was limited so thankfully this ancient SU set worked okay.  The tulip has a bit of a pattern on it so the chevron stripes are less noticeable than on the leaves.  

Don't you just love these Paper Smooches stamps that Karolyn used? She also has a hot tip on some great pigment ink..."No joke – this ink offers incredible coverage and a perfect image every single time!  I can’t imagine my crafting life without this ink – no craft room should be without it!".  Karolyn initially came across the Velveteen Stamping technique on Shari Carroll's blog a few months ago.

Happy crafting!


  1. OH EM GEE!! Geri, this is absolutely stunning! The color combo is brilliant and I can't believe you went to all the trouble to use your Stamp A Majig on that chevron pattern - you are amazing! I'm so happy that you were inspired by my tutorial over at the CLASSroom. The concept certainly wasn't mine - that Shari Carroll is one smart cookie. But I, too, enjoyed learning this technique and had fun trying different images. Thank you so much for all your kind words. I will most definitely be visiting you again - I've added your blog to my reader and will plan to visit often!! You are one talented chica! XOXO

  2. This is beautiful! I always love blues and greens together. I couldn't get the link to work, but am definitely interested in the technique, although also definitely too impatient to use pigment ink very often - I never leave it alone until it's dry and always end up with a smudge!
