Stamping with the STARS #311: Spotlighting Technique Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts311.  This week we're having fun with the Spotlighting Technique!

DOstamping with the STARS, Spotlighting Technique Inspiration Hop #DOswts311 #dostamperSTARS #stampinupSpotlighting Technique using Dandelion Wishes byStampin' Up!, created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts311

OK, I have to admit it.  When I was going through my stamp sets to select just the right image for the Spotlighting Technique, I did not even consider the Dandelion Wishes set.  But for some reason it "spoke to me" and  jumped into my hands.  So I went with it.  I'm glad I did, as I'm happy with the results.

How'd She DO That? Dandelion Wishes card:

  • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
  • Whisper White (4" x 3" and scrap)
  • Night of Navy (4-1/2" x 3-1/2" and scrap)

Spotlighting Technique Instructions:

  • Select a stamp set to use ("outline images" work nicely for this technique)
    • I used Dandelion Wishes
  • Stamp image with black or neutral ink
    • I used Night of Navy
  • Stamp again with same ink on a scrap piece
    • or a different colored ink for more "solid image" type - I used Mango Melody
  • Die cut or punch out only a PORTION of the extra stamped image into a circle (or square, etc) to become the spotlight.
    • I used the 1" Circle and 1-1/8" Scallop Circle Punches. 
  • If needed, color the spotlight piece and layer onto a colored cardstock matte.
  • Then adhere the spotlight piece over the original image, lining up both images.

Wouldn't this be a nice card to let someone know you're thinking of them?

Let your stamps "speak" to you and give the Spotlighting Technique a try!

Enjoy~Dawn O
