How To Use The Ghost Stamping Technique in Card Making – Lydia’s Crafty Corner

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone! Happy Friday. Lydia here. Today I’ll be sharing a fun technique that allows you to ‘print’ a inked background.

I started by temporarily adhering the masks from Wild & Free Mask Stencil into place onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white cardstock. I inked over these images using  Aqualicious Crisp Dye Ink. Once this was done, I removed the masks and inked over the whole piece using Fuchsia Crisp Dye Ink. For the ghost ink printing, I added a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white cardstock over the inked panel and then ran this through my die cut machine. Separate the pieces and you get this beautiful ghosted effect.

As I didn’t want to take too much attention from the background, I used simple sentiments from Label Love Stamp Set.

For a video showing how I made these cards, please watch below. Or watch it in HD over on YouTube:

The ghost stamping was neat. That would have made a great background for your ink blended pieces. I sure am going to try this especially with Christmas cards. Thank you.
