Hello Everyone!! My name is Lindsay Adreon and I am so excited to be a part of the 2017 Inspired by Stamping Design Team. I was a guest designer last year and absolutely fell in love with the designs and quality of Inspired by Stamping stamps! Today, I am sharing a video tutorial with you on multi coloring stamping using the brand new Love Sentiments stamp set. You can watch the full tutorial below and get some great tips and tricks for this technique, or keep on reading for an extremely condensed version!
Multi color stamping is an excellent technique to really utilize those small stamps in your sets and also stretch your stamps to their fullest extent. I wanted to use those small stamps to create a focal point on my card, so I started by making a frame from white cardstock and using the die cut inlay technique with two rectangle dies and my Big Shot. For the stamping I used a hot pink and green dye ink. I would highly suggest the small “mini” ink pads for this technique. The smaller ink pads allow you to really ink up the small stamps and get into tiny crevices without contaminating the other pad much at all. Also, if it takes you a bit of time to ink up the stamps with two different colors, you can always “huff” on the stamp before you press it to your paper to rewet the ink.
This technique can take a bit of time so I also added in solid pink hearts and green leaves (all included in the stamp set) to cut down on the multi color stamps. This allowed for an almost patterned paper look to my frame, but I made it with stamps! For my sentiment inside the frame, I used the Love Sentiments set again, and built up the “Sent with Love and Hope” sentiment. I stamped it onto Kraft cardstock, utilizing two different colors of ink (hot pink and black) for more interest.
Because this is a simple card I did pop up my frame for some dimension and interest after adhering my kraft sentiment panel onto an A2 side folding white card base with double sided adhesive. If you wanted even more dimension you could always use the coordinating Love die in place of the Love stamp.
This was a such a fun card to make! Stamping the frame was almost like a puzzle, twisting and turning the stamps so it looked like a patterned paper! Also, the multi coloring stamps added so much interest to an overall simple card. This technique is one you can use no matter what your style might be, so I hope you all will give it a try! Happy Crafting!!
