Layered Stamping with Altenew florals

Layered Stamping with Altenew florals

Hi friends, how are you? Today, we've got some inspiration for you, using layered stamps to create a quick and easy coloured image, without actually having to do any colouring! For this card I've used the Cartoon Tulips stamp & die set from Altenew.

To create this card, I placed some white cardstock into my MISTI (you will ideally need a stamp positioner for this technique), and placed the outline tulip down on to the page. I then picked it up with the MISTI door, and inked it up in Versafine Onyx black ink. Next, I removed the outline stamp and added the first solid tulip stamp (the set is labelled, so you know which order to stamp them). I stood over the stamp positioner to make sure the stamp was lined up in the right place over the tulip. I inked it up in Harbor ink from Concord & 9th and stamped a couple of times to get a good, solid impression.

I then repeated this process for the next two stamps. which add detail and shading to the tulip. For the second stamp I used Blueberry ink, followed by Midnight for the darkest shade.

I repeated the same process for the leaves, using Artichoke and Avocado inks. I then die-cut the tulips with the co-ordinating die.

To turn my tulips into a card, I heat embossed the "thinking of you" sentiment from Concord and 9th's Picked Posie stamp & co-ordinating die set onto some black cardstock, and die-cut with the co-ordinating die.

I trimmed down a piece of Fog cardstock from Lawn Fawn to 3.75" x 5" and added it to a white A2 card base with foam tape. I then added the tulips and sentiment using foam squares. To finish off, I added a few clear enamel dots.

Have you ever tried layered stamping? I definitely think I'll be making more of these! The card turned out so clean and elegant, and it all came together really easily.

Thanks for joining us, and we hope you'll join us again soon!
