Full background Swinking Technique

I’ve got one final Swinking Technique to share with you today.  This Simple yet stunning Christmas card uses “swinking” for the full background.  You can see the other projects make with different “swinking” techniques by clicking on the links below.

This swinking technique is about as easy as it gets and each one turns out a bit different than the previous one.  I used Orchic Oasis ink on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock and I “swinked” (swiped ink) all over the the cardstock fully covering the whole paper.  The next step is to spritz water on the cardstock and allow it to dry (or use the Heat Tool to dry it faster).  Spritzing it creates beautiful speckles all over the ink, which in this case makes it resemble a night sky with stars.  I also splattered some Wink of Stella on the cardstock.  I did this by squeezing the Wink of Stella until the tip is full of ink, then tapping the tube on something hard, like the accross the lid of the Wink of Stella.  This creates some “stars” that really sparkle and shine.  I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment from Brightest Glow stamp set with Whisper White Craft ink and attached the background to a Thick Basic White card base.  The card was finished off by attaching one of the Wonderful Snowflakes to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Christmas Card with Swinking Technique

Previously, I shared how to use the Swinking Technique to make a custom plaid print, you can see that HERE and today I’ve got another Swinking Technique to share with you.  I created this Christmas card using the Classic Stampin’ Spots Assortment once again.

For the Swinking on this card, I used the Shimmery White Card Stock and held a length of scrap card stock across it horizontally just above the center of the paper.  Next I dragged Real Red Stampin’ Spot from the scrap piece onto the Shimmery White piece and dragged it for about 1/2″ or so.  I left a space about the width of the Stampin’ Spot and dragged the Real Red again and again acorss the Shimmer White.  I then filled in the spaces the same way with the Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Spot.  Once I had a line of alternating red & green swipws of ink, I turned the cardstock 180 degrees so that the swinking was at the bottom.  I replaced the scrap piece of cardstock and repeated the process starting with Shaded Spruce first.

Once all the swinking was done, I spritzed the Shimmery White cardstock with water to let the ink “do it’s thing”.  After the card stock dried, I stamped the sentiment from Brightest Glow stamp set with Shaded Spruce on the lower right and attached a piece of  White Glittered Ribbon which was tied into a bow, then attached the Shimmer White to a Real Red card base.  The finishing touch on the card was the addition of a few Red Rhinestones.

Create your own plaid with Swinking Technique

I wanted to share a fun technique where you can create your own custom plaid.  It’s called Swinking and there are a few different ways to swink.  I will be sharing three different ways to swink in my next few blog posts, but first of all, I need to explain where the term swinking comes from; combine the words swipe & inking and you get “Swinking.”

I started creating my own custom plaid with a piece of Basic White card stock and the Classic Stampin’ Spot Assortment, using the Coastal cabana and Flirty Flamingo Inks.

Stampin' Up! Stampin' Spots

With the card stock on a scrap piece paper (so as to not get ink on my counter) I held the cardstock in place and swiped the ink or swinked the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Spot across the card stock horizontally, then used the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Spot and swiinked it vertically and TaDa…I’ve got a plaid print in the colors of my choosing.  To finish off the card, I adhered the plaid to a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Flirty Flamingo, then attached this to a Coastal Cabana card base that measures 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2 (scored and folded at 4-1/4″).  I used the Sending Smiles Bundle for the sentiment and banner as well as the die-cut word.  The sentiment was stamped on the Flirty Flamingo banner with Memento Ink then attached to the card with Dimensionals.  The die-cut word was attached with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.  I love how easy this was to do and the fact that I was able to customize with the colors I wanted.
