I truly can't get enough of Stampin' Up!'s new French Foliage stamp set. It's so easy to use and perfect for collage stamping!
Lately, I've been seeing several cards that use Stampin' Up!'s clear blocks to create a background shadow image. So I had to give it a try, but added a twist (of course)! I wanted the edges of the shadow image to have more definition to them. So here's what I did:
Dawns Stamping Tip - Using a Clear Block as Shadow Stamp
1. Ink up Clear Block D in Crumb Cake ink
2. Stamp off on scratch paper
3. Tap all 4 edges of the clear block onto Early Espresso ink pad
4. Stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock
