FEBRUARY

This month I will be concentrating on the technique of the Jumbo Rollagraph Stamping System. There are 3 separate components to the Rollagraph: the self inking handle, the ink cartridge and the rollagraph wheel. This system can be used on cards, and scrapbooking layouts. The ink used is: Ancient Page and is available in the following colours; Aegean Blue, Cardinal, Chay, Chocolate, Coal Black, Cobalt, Emerald, Flannel Grey, Foxglove, Plum Wine and Primrose. There is also a Watermark Ink Cartridge that you can use to emboss.

USING THE JUMBO ROLLAGRAPH STAMPING SYSTEM:

1. Choose the colour of ink for your project and insert the ink cartridge into the handle.

2. Choose the rollagraph wheel for your project and snap into the handle.

3. Remove the cover off the ink cartridge and push the ink cartridge up so that it touches the stamp.

4. To prime the rollagraph wheel with ink, you need to turn the wheel to apply ink to it.

5. You will start stamping off the page, going onto the project and then off the page.

6. You need to apply even pressure as you roll the handle to stamp the image. To help you stamp the image in a straight line, you can use the ColorBox Stamping Guide, (this consists of 2 interlocking rulers with non-skid rubber feet).

MARCH

This month I will be concenrating on the technique of marbling. Marbling can be done with Smooch which is a Pearlised Accent Ink.

MARBLING:

1. Fill a shallow container with water that is large enough for your piece of cardstock.

2. Choose three complentary colours of Smooch. For each colour, using the Smooch applicator, touch the applicator brush to the water and then put it back into the Smooch bottle each time to re-ink. You will need to do this 6 times for each colour. A good colour combination is: Sassy Pink, Sundance and Carrot.

3. Swirl the colours around with a skewer being careful not to over mix the colours. Place the cardstock on top of the water and then lift it off carefully.

4. Allow to dry on a piece of paper towel.


APRIL

This month I will be concentrating on the technique of Colouring Sticky Bling and Sticky Bling Words with our new Alcohol Ink Art Markers that are exclusive to Kaszazz.

1. Choose the Sticky Bling or Word you wish to colour.

2. Colour the Bling using your desired colour of an Alcohol Ink Art Marker, being careful only to colour in the bling and not the tape.

Our Alcohol Ink Art Markers come in 72 colours that match the 72 colours of our Scrapbooking Esssentials Cardstock. You will have perfectly coordinated embellishments for all your scrapbooking layouts or cards.

JUNE

This month I will be explaining one of the uses of our Chalking Sets. Kaszazz have 2 different coloured sets: 1. Artist Chalk in 30 different colours and 2. Artist Chalk - Shimmers in 30 different colours. The chalks are acid free and blend beautifully. They are perfect to use in scrapbooking and card making.

Items required:

Perfect Medium Inkpad
Stamp of your choice
Chalks
Scrap paper
Post it note
Icestickles

Technique:

1. Fold your cardstock in half. Attach the post it note to the centre of your card.

2. Stamp your image repeatedly using Perfect Medium over your cardstock, remembering to reink each time before stamping. You can stamp off the edges of your card.

3. Using the applicator with a pom pom, pick up your desired colour of chalk and colour over your stamped images. The chalk makes the images pop. You can use another colour to colour in around the stamped images.

4. Remove the post it note and stamp a greeting in the centre of the square that hasn't been stamped.

5. Using the icestickles, create a border around the square that was covered by the post it note. Also put icestickles on the centre of each flower.
