Totally Techniques: Spotlight

Good morning stampers!  This month's technique is called Spotlight. Wait until you see the Totally Techniques Design Team in action this week --- Ah-MAZING!!!!! WOW!

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms

My card this week features the Birthday Blooms stamp set by Stampin' Up!  Believe it or not, this card is LOADED with different products from the Textured Impressions Folder to Washi Tape to Dazzling Details to water coloring and the SpotLight technique!

Spotlight Technique

In short, the Spotlight Technique is where you only color part(s) of a stamped image, essentially highlighting certain "spots" of your card.  There are different variations and all fun and I'm sure you'll see many today during the hop!

Quick Steps On Making This Card

  • 5" Square card in Peekaboo Peach.
  • Bottom 1/2 is embossed with the Lovely Lace embossing folder.
  • Then a black/vanilla piece of Playful Palette DSP adhered across the center (1-3/4 x 5).
  • Stamp the floral image in StazOn.
  • Sponge Soft Sky around the floral image.
  • Watercolor with Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo on the petals, the center is Daffodil Delight.  Then sprinkle the center with Dazzling Details.
  • Adhere Washi Tape to the left side of the focal panel, two strips.
  • Tear right top edge.
  • Adhere focal panel to Basic Black mat.
  • Tear right top edge of mat.
  • Adhere focal panel using Stampin' Dimensionals.
