Does anyone have any new techniques to post or link up to? I'm a fairly new stamper. I have only been stamping for about a year and a half so I'm always looking.

Versamark Black ink is where it's at.....also sometimes rubbing (lightly)the flat side of a big eraser over new clear stamps can help with ink adhering. Also, Ali Edwards has super awesome stamps!

Thanks for the suggestions ladies. I have been following Noell's thread. I do all the things mentioned above. I was thinking of things like reflection technique, shaving cream swirls and resist those type ideas. I'm still learning:)

I love watching Jennifer McGuire on youtube (https://m.youtube.co...ImARk2cdLOpMfZg), to get new ideas. I want to try stamping with pigment inks on kraft cardstock, but I have to buy some more inkpads!

I don't mind fuzzy cutting, but don't get me started on watching glue dry!

I agree Splitcoast Stampers is a good place to visit/join as they have tutorials there and many of them are in written as well as video form. Jennifer McGuire is amazing and often shows another way to achieve the same technique or new spin on techniques. Ellen Hutson also a "in the classroom" section you could look for some new techniques (this is the link to the video portion http://ellenhutson.t...eo-tutorials/); Julie Ebersole does a lot of them, she fabulous! You could try searching in You Tube for any of the ones you mention and will probably get tons of hits for videos showcasing them.
Of the ones you mention resist is one of the easiest to do and a few ways to do it. You stamp in Versamark and then cover with embossing powder (clear or white), heat emboss and then sponge ink over the embossing (I like Distress Inks because they blend so beautifully but can do with almost any of them). Then lightly wipe the ink off the embossed areas. You want another look you could place your piece between typing paper and iron off the embossing powder...which leaves you with a flat non shiny image and how did she do that look.
I love stamping and hope this helps. I love seeing new techniques and then experimenting too! Good luck.

Jennifer McGuire is a fantastic source for techniques.  She's my go-to source.  www.jennifermcguireink.com  I think I like her so much because she works with a very orderly process.  (Must be the engineer part of her - but I like the way she thinks).

I also enjoy watching Jennifer McGuire's videos and reading her blog.  She is a technique type stamper and have learned so much.  Catherine Pooler is also a great source of ideas.
