A Layout with Stamping Beautiful Line & Shadow

by Eunyoung Lee

Hello, crafty friends. It's Eunyoung here again. Today I'm sharing a layout. I mainly used the Botanical Garden stamp set and the Botanical Garden Die Set. This stamp set is so beautiful, I especially love the stamped lines on a white background.

At first, I tried painting the stamped images with watercolors. But I think the stamped image(stamped line) is so beautiful itself, so I decided to use it without any painting.


Because I didn't want to paint on the stamped images, I chose black color for a background. The combination of black & white is simple but cool!!

1. Paint black chalkboard acrylic craft paint on the Woodgrain White paper with a flat brush. The woodgrain paper is so thick(heavy) to apply acrylic craft paint on its surface since it has a wood embossed finish that has the visual reference of a real wood, I used it for a background.

2. Stamp images from the Botanical Garden stamp set and die cut them with the Botanical Garden Die Set.

3. Stamp images from the Floral Shadow stamp set with crisp dye inks. (Evergreen Crisp Dye Ink, Forest Glades Crisp Dye Ink, Lava Rock Crisp Dye Ink )

4. Do machine stitchings on the blossom images with white thread.

5. Arrange die-cuts & a photo and attach them using pop-dots & glue.

6. Embellish with crystal gem stickers.

7. Splatter a white acrylic mist and stamp a date.


To avoid a boring black-and-white page, I stamped images from the Floral Shadow stamp set with Evergreen Crisp Dye Ink, Forest Glades Crisp Dye Ink and Lava Rock Crisp Dye Ink. This is a 6″ x 8″ clear stamp set containing beautiful shadows & sentiments.


I hope you'll enjoy my layout and it'll inspire your creation. Thank you for stopping by.

This is an awesome layout! Never seen one quite like it. The black and white beautiful. Shows you don’t always have to have a persons photo to make it complete. Thanks for sharing.
