Stamp School #6: Layering stamps!

Hi friends! Last week my hubby and I celebrated 14 years of wedded bliss, this is the card I made him:


I really like layered stamp designs, also called 2 step stamping, because it is quick and you get beautiful results.  I am using some watercolor and accent stamps from Rubbernecker today. I often reach for their watercolor stamps when I want to make a quick, yet beautiful card. There are a few tips I have for you on lining up your rubber stamps, the most important tip is that you do not have to be perfect lining them up to get a beautiful result. Watch the video to see how I made this card.


Supplies you will need for this card:

  • Stamps: Rubbernecker, they have all the stamps I used on sale and free shipping over $25, thanks guys!
  • Ink: Black (Ranger Archival) Shades of red (Memento)
  • Color Dusters (optional)
  • Black Grosgrain Ribbon (Dollar Tree)
  • White cardstock
  • Paper trimmer or ruler and knife
  • Frame die or stencil (optional)

I hope you try some of these techniques on your next card. I know many people get frustrated with the layered stamps but hopefully you can relax and give it another try. Another tip, if you ever feel like you are not getting a technique, make the card anyway then set it aside and look at it tomorrow because it will look so much better. You can then tell if it needs something else or if it is great as is, hindsight is 20/20 as they say. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  7. Happy Anniversary & many, many more. I love your videos – you are precise, thorough, and creative. You and Jennifer McQuire would make a good team. Where did you buy your color dusters. I’ve been looking for them with no luck.


  8. Happy anniversary, seems like we just read you two went out to a movie and dinner for your last one. Time sure flies. Love all you tutorials. Look forward to the ones from your vacation & sisters garden.


  9. Thanks for linking to Rubberneckers. They have cute stamps at great prices. I also went to Joann and right now there’s a 20% off coupon on total purchase. Don’t know how long it lasts, but entire purchase coupons are hard to come by.


  10. Great card and sentiment! And congratulations on 14 years! I’m closing in on 50 years of marriage. I tell people marriage is hard; if it weren’t no covenant would be necessary; no ’til death do us part. There may be times when the most we feel is the commitment to the vows we took (vs commitment to the spouse). If one is married to a reasonable person and no betrayal has taken place and there is no abuse, it’s possible to stay married until death. Love waxes and wanes, and if we depended on our feelings, well that doesn’t work. Love is a decision. We can always choose to love even when/if we don’t feel like it. To those who do divorce I have no condemnation. Until one lives with a person we have no idea what they are like. Often seemingly wonderful people are not. They wear a mask which rarely slips. But a spouse will know.
