Shadow Stamping

Hi all, it’s Maureen here today sharing a simple technique to spice up your clean and simple cards.

ShadowStamping2

Stamping on Kaft cardstock gives such a timeless, classic look.  When combined with Shadow Stamping, the result is just stunning.

To make my card, I started with a piece of Kraft cardstock that was trimmed to 4 x 5 1/4.  I stamped the flowers and leaf images from SOA Eva’s Favorite Flowers first in white pigment ink and then with colored ink, slightly offsetting them.  Next I used the large scallop frame from the SOA Journal Card die and die cut the center of my stamped piece.  I sponged the edges so that it really popped once it was inset.  The sentiment from SOA All About You was heat embossed, then I added a “you” from the SOA Two Yous die with liquid glue.  From here you just add all of the pieces to a white card base and you are done!

I love a card that comes together quickly and easily.  You could make a bunch of these in no time at all!

I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

    Love this card and tried to case it using different sentiments. I found it difficult as a new stamper doing the shadow stamping and particularly as my white ink is very wet, but I’m happy with the end results and hope my friends will be too. Thank you Maureen for sharing.

    Happy stamping and day

    Hi Mo ~ Love this card….thanks for the reminder. Sometimes the tried and true methods take a back seat and we forget about them. ~HUGS~
