Awesomely Artistic

Hello Stampers,

I often use the stamping off method when stamping and by doing this you can double the ink colours that you have. The flowers and Friend on this card were stamped as normal. The butterfly and dragonflies (on the background) were done with the stamping off method.

The base card is Whisper White (#106549) and I have also used Watermelon Wonder (#138341) and Basic Black (#121688). The DSP is Everyday Chic (#138445). The ink is Watermelon Wonder (#138323). The flowers, dragonflies and sentiment are all from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set (#c139959, #w138694) and the butterfly is in the Kinda Eclectic stamp set (#c135350, #w135347). The Bitty Butterfly (#129406) was used to punch the butterfly and the Washi Tape punch (#138296) was used for the sentiment. The circles were cut with the Circles Collection Framelits (#130911). I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) to the butterfly and sentiment. The bow is made from 1/8" Silver Ribbon (#132137) and attached with Glue Dots (#103683). I used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) for the circles, butterfly and sentiment.

Tip of the day: I am sure most know what the stamping off method is but in case you don't , this is what you do. Just ink your stamp as normal, then stamp onto scrap paper then stamp onto your card. This gives you a lighter image. You can also stamp the first image on your card, then stamp again on the card to get the 2 colours. The darker colours allow you to do even 3 or 4 images. Just play with your inks and stamps to see what effects you get.

Hope you are all staying warm,

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
