If you're new to stamping, you might be wondering "what is 2-step stamping"?  Good question.

  • 2-Step Stamping is when you use 2 or more images to make one complete image. 
  • Choose your colors and you're ready to go.
  • It's a great choice for beginner and experienced alike!
  • See my DOstamping Tips below.

DOstamping 2-Step Stamping Tips:

  • For this card, I enlisted both 2-Step Stamping and Stamping Off techniques.
  • I started with the tall fuller floral image, stamping with Highland Heather.  As you stamp, also stamp a 2nd-time without reinking to create dimensions (this is stamping off). 
  • Continue stamping until you get the look you're going for.  NOTE:  I started stamping higher on the right edge and then brought the images downward as I worked towards the left.
  • Using the skinny detailed floral image, stamp with Gorgeous Grape over the first images - stamping off on the stamped off images.  You'll find this is not a perfect alignment between the 2 images.   
  • Finish stamping by filling in white areas with the leafy image using Shaded Spruce - stamping off as you go.
  • Lastly - use a Blending Brush and Shaded Spruce ink and gently apply ink over the bottom area of the card - as shown.
    • TIP: Start by blending color in circles onto a scratch paper first and then onto your project. 
    • I always start with a really light touch first, then add more pressure if I want a deeper color - especially when using dark colors like Shaded Spruce.
