Crafty Hack! Step-Up Your Solid Stamps

by Erum Tasneem

Hello everyone! Today I decided to share this card I made a while back featuring the Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set.

On Crest Solar White Cardstock, stamp the butterfly from the Butterfly Kisses Stamp in Sunray Dye Ink. Then ink the edges of the stamp with Snapdragon Dye Ink. Use a cloth to soften the edges and stamp over the first layer. This will create a shaded look.

Another way to do this is to stamp the first layer and then when you ink the second time, use your finger to soften the edges. What this does is, creates a softer transition between the two inks.

Once done, use one of the Fine Liner Pen Set pens and add doodling to the images. You could add outlines or draw patterns. This is completely up to you.

Next, cut a circle out of Woodgrain Powder Cardstock. Use the Espresso Dye Ink and swipe the cube over the cardstock gently. Then use a Blending Tool to blend the ink. Watch the video to see how I do this.

Apply the leftover ink which is on the Blending tool onto the card front. I forgot to do this earlier, but this should be done before you adhere the circle to the card front. Die-cut the Burlap Textur Die and alter it a bit so that it's slightly peeking from behind the circle. Then adhere the circle with foam tape. Glue the remaining pieces of the Textured Burlap Die-Cut onto the edges to balance the design.

Add a few black splatters. Then adhere the butterflies. Then place the sentiment. To finish, add Satin Gold Sequins.
