Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Multi-Level Stamp Layering

Hello crafters! I wanted to pop by and share my latest Studio Monday video with you that I created for Simon Says Stamp! This week is all about stamp layering and I am featuring Hero Arts’ Water Lilies stamp layering collection.

Stamp layering involves stamping 2 or more images on top of each other to build up a detailed, dimensional-looking design. I love how easy stamp layering creates color, dimension and shading to an image; all without having to use any coloring mediums to achieve the look!

I made use of the MISTI stamping tool today to aid in the stamp layering, but you can definitely achieve the same results without the MISTI. For the ink colors I used Butter Bar, Soft Pink, Bubble Gum and Red Royal for the open water lilies. The closed water lilies are stamped in Butter Bar, Soft Apricot, Thistle, Passion Flower and Orchid. The lily pads are stamped in Lime Green, Green Apple and Pine.

Stamp layering is really awesome, but I wanted to step it up a notch and add even more dimension to these images! When doing all of my stamping, I created four of every image. This is because I wanted to create a more interesting effect by die cutting into the background panel.

I started by die cutting the final layout of my images into my background panel. I then inlaid one set of die cut images into the die cut areas and then popped up the second set on top of those inlaid pieces. The result adds a lot more dimension to the overall look of the card, instead of the images simply being popped up off of the background.

Speaking of the background; I used a Hero Arts wave stencil with some of their inks (Mint Julep, Aegean and Aquatic) and sponged the background to create the effect of water behind the lilies. I love how the blue green tones match so well with the water lilies!

For finishing touches, the sentiments are stamped with both the Water Lilies stamp set as well as the new Hero Arts You Are Loved sentiment set. I really love the encouraging theme of the You Are Loved set; there are so many sentiments in multiple font styles, which pretty much guarantees you’ll find something that works well with whatever kind of card you are making!

To help carry on the theme, I place some Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets along with dots of Glossy Accents in the “water” of my card. And finally added some sparkle on the flowers and lily pads with a Wink of Stella glitter pen.
