Clean and Simple Stamping with the Stamper's Big Brush Pens


Hi, it’s Jill here with tutorial demonstrating how fabulous Stamper’s Big Brush Pens are for the oh-so-popular clean and simple stamping style!


Begin by stamping your images onto white cardstock.  Don’t be afraid to stamp off the edge of the cardstock as it creates visual interest for your overall design.

Color your image with a Stamper’s Big Brush Pen.

Next, choose a coordinating color in a darker shade.  Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft makes color selection easy with their Mix and Match color system.  Color with this second color where you would like darker shading.  You can already see the depth created by adding just one more color.


Add one more dark shade.  There’s no need to go back and blend- this creates a bright, stylized look.


Now follow this procedure to color the leaves and bees.


Add to your notecard using dimensional adhesive and you’re ready to start your next card!

Hugs and Happy Stamping!

This is such a beautiful stamp set, and of course your coloring is impeccable as always! Your talent amazes me and I hope one day to have even a fraction of your ability.


Lovely card and thanks for the tutorial. I got a couple of these pens as samples from an on-line store. Wasn't sure how to use them except to color, spray and stamp so I was happy to view your tutorial. I'll give it a try w/the two I have, later today. :)
