Hi friends! Layered stamps are really trendy right now but they can be used for more than just one thing! Today I’ll show you how to use layering stamps to make some christmas projects! We will use them as they were intended by layering and also use portions of them for resist and backgrounds with pearl powders. I hope this gives you new ideas for your stamps!

- Christmas wreath layering stamp set
- Christmas Sentiments
- Black and white cardstock
- Smooth white watercolor paper or bristol *smooth paper is easier to stamp on
- Pearl ex powder
- Dye ink pads in several shades of each color you want to use. Any brand is fine but if you are looking for some these memento Dew Drop (here is another bundle with no duplacates) sets are great quality and an affordable way to get started and you can purchase refills if you use a color up.
- Versamark ink (for embossing and holding the pearl ex)
- Clear embossing powder
- Paint brushes
- Adhesive, I used zip dry glue
- Foam squares
- Basic multi color layering: Starting with the most solid stamp layer and the lightest shade or ink stamp the image layering images each time with a darker ink.
- Using top layer stamps to watercolor resist: Stamp images with clear ink, sprinkle with embossing powder then heat. Add watercolor over image and the stamping remains white.
- Making backgrounds with base layers and Pearl Ex: Stamp images with clear ink on black cardstock and brush on mica powder (Pearl Ex) then buff with a tissue to remove excess.
Freshen up your card making using these techniques for any occasion! Thank for watching and til next time happy crafting!
