Lydia’s Crafty Corner – Simple Placement When Not Using Outline Images

by Lydia Evans

Hi there everyone and happy Friday! Lydia here, sharing another video tutorial with you today. In the video, I will show a simple way to line up your layering images when you are not stamping the outline.

DSC01332pSo, to start, I stamped the flower base layers from Always There Stamp Set using Pink Pearl Ink. Then for the little trick, I took the outline layer and layered the second layer on top of it. I then placed this stacked stamp into place on top of the stamped base layer, closed the lid of my MISTI. This will lift up the two stamps layered together. Then remove the outline stamp and ink up the second layer using Coral Bliss Ink. Do this same technique for the third layer and stamp this using Heart Beat Ink. I then stamped in the centers using Industrial Diamond and Graphite Inks. For the leaves, I used Just Green and Hunter Green Inks. Once all of these were stamped, I die cut them using the coordinating dies.

DSC01334pFor the sentiment, I used a stamp from Circled Sentiments Stamp Set. To get the beautiful enamel look, I first stamped the circle sentiment using Jet Black Ink, I then stamped over it again using Embossing Ink and heat set it using Crystal Clear Embossing Powder. When it was cooled, I then die cut it using the coordinating dies.

DSC01335pFinally, I adhered all of the die-cut elements into place and added some splatters using Jet Black and Antique Gold Ink Sprays.
