Simple But Wow: Blooming With Kindness

Do you struggle to find time to stamp?  Are you looking for quick and cute cards (QC), yet still want them to have that wow factor?  Today's Blooming with Kindness card fits the bill perfectly!

stampin up, demonstrator, dawn olchefske, dostamping, blooming with kindness, floral, double time stamping, quick & cute, QC

Dawn's Stamping Tips

  1. Stamp both pieces of Whisper White cardstock at the same time, by “stacking” them on top of each other.  
  2. Stamp the greeting first, then the floral images.
  3. Then “unstack” and mat.

Hmm, are you thinking..."this stamping technique looks a little familiar"?  Good eye!  It's a riff on the Triple Time Stamping Technique.  Instead of three layers, I used just two layers.  I eliminated the top layer for an even quicker card to make.  I love the results...simple but WOW!

Check out my How'd She DO That Video: Triple Time Stamping

 

stampin up, demonstrator, dawn olchefske, dostamping, blooming with kindness, floral

Stampin' Up!'s Blooming With Kindness set is actually more of a greeting stamp set.  It comes with one flower image and FIVE beautiful greetings.  A perfect addition to any stamper's collection! 

Have fun stamping this weekend~Dawn O
