  1. I love the swipe technique and especially liked swiping in a Chevron pattern since that is such a trend right now.

  2. I left a message on Facebook and Claudia Brawley is my closest consultant. I would use this to create shapes and use them as embellishments on scrapbook pages. I also love the idea of making smalleer background to anchor stamped titles made with the alphabet on pages.

  3. I plan to use the swipe technique on Christmas cards. It looks like lots of fun :)

  10. This technique would be awesome to use on my cards. Congratulations on the 3 lucky winners too.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Love how easy it is! I would use it on a title. Maybe a beach page

    ReplyDelete
  12. I just recently saw this technique and I love it. The movement it gives and the "less than perfect" feel would fit in for any distressed works. I also think doing an up and down motion or the "V" version on large leaves would give some texture. Great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  13. closest consultant is Trisha Rodriguez.

    ReplyDelete
  14. love how youc an make a distressed look with it!

    ReplyDelete

  18. Fantastic, who would have thought? I think I will try this for my next class, the students are still pretty nervous about making stamping "mistakes" so I think this might just help put them at ease!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. great technique. I liked the cheveron motion stamp technique, will have to try that. I would like to do that in different colors 2-3 alot of motion would look great,

  23. I guess it's more about what COULDN'T you do with such a fun technique! I'll be trying it for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Such a fun technique that's super simple to just step up stamping! I would totally do this with any solid stamp on my scrapbook pages and my cards! Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I shared the link to this video on my FB page.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think I'll try it on some solid pumpkin stamps!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I located myself because I'm a CTMH consultant!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love this latest technique video. The stamped letters being swiped added so much visual interest, so that it appeared to be patterned paper. Way cool! I tweeted and facebooked this info. today, as well. http://www.scrappinbliss.ctmh.com/

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh yeah this is a wonderful technique! I can so see myself using this technique on shabby chic projects and Tattered projects, something you want to make look aged. I think that it would best work with stamps that are solid or block type, an image that has hardly no lines in it. I could be wrong tho and I'm going to try with all types of stamps. Can't wait to try it actually, I'll be starting a project this weekend and plan on trying it then.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have just shared this on Facebook = )

    ReplyDelete
  34. I went to Close To My Heart find a consultant web page and they could not find an exact match for my address but rather found about 5 matches I believe and I will share all five names:
    1. Sharon Quella
    2. Patti Schmitz
    3. Julie Ott
    4. Marge Shuppe
    5. Mary Kay Knoll
    So I have a choice when I decide to make a purchase.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This gives new dimension to the alphabets instead of a solid color. Now you could create letters that look weathered looking, like wood or scratched. These ideas would be great for a mans page, camping, outdoors. The possibility is unlimited.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I really like this technique. It's simple, but I like the gradated interest it gives to page and card headers. I have some bold solid flower stamps that I'd like to try this on because I think it would give the look more dimension. In fact, it might be interesting to go a bit further and wipe (swipe) off the ink on different items rather than just the stamp pad. I wonder what that might do? :)

    Shout out to my local CTMH consultant, Desiree O'Leary in Monrovia, CA. I got an order just today that had the Cricut Artiste cartridge in it (among other things). Woohoo!

    ReplyDelete
  37. great video and technique, soooo many things I want to try this on!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great technique. I'm planning to use it to add some spook to my Halloween layouts.

  71. Wow - I have been stamping for a while and have never heard of or seen this technique - thank you for demonstrating it for us! I think it looks great on the alphabet stamps!

  94. I am huge into creating mini albums about family moments because as my son is now in high school it's all about taking each moment by moment before I become an empty nester. The other thing is my son is always on the move so a stamping technique that carries that theme throughout my mini albums is very close to my heart! Thanks for sharing this technique. It is sure to become a favorite in my current albums.
