More Simple Stamping


Yesterday, I shared a card for the Paper Craft Crew Design Team for a simple stamping challenge. If you missed it, you can SEE IT HERE. Anyway, I thought it was simple, but it looked complicated. That’s because it used a layering stamp, for the cupcake. So today I’m back to share more simple stamping! This time I’m using a layering stamp set again – but without all of the layers for the focal image.


I’m using the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set and coordinating dies. I did use all the layers for the flower on THIS CARD, but today’s card is a bit different.

More Simple Stamping

The flower is still the focal image, but it’s only the leaves that are stamped and layered in colour.


On a panel of kraft or neutral coloured cardstock, stamp the large flower and some of the leaves directly onto the panel, in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. Next, on a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp the flower again in Nocturne ink. To stamp the leaves, first ink up the solid background colour in a light green ink, and stamp onto the white cardstock. Choose a darker green, and layer the detail shading stamp on top. I stamped the leaves twice, so that I would have enough to tuck in behind the flower.

Die cut both the leaves and the flower using the matching Beautiful Day dies and a Big Shot. Layer the die cuts on top of the stamped images, using foam squares or tape.

Finally, stamp the sentiment, also from the Beautiful Day stamp set, in Nocturne ink. Cover it with Clear embossing powder, and set withΒ  a heat tool.


Now you can add your front panel to a card base. I chose to use the same cardstock as I used for the front panel. If you want to step up the card a bit more, I’d add some pearls or clear droplets to the front.

If you want the card to be ultra-simple, you can leave off the die cut images and front panel. Just stamp directly onto your card front. Either way, it would be a pretty card!

Thanks for spending some time with me today! I hope I’ve inspired you to try some different ways of using your stamp sets. If you need some supplies, I’ve provided links below.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
