Hi there, everyone! It's Lydia here today and I wanted to share the latest from Lydia's Crafty Corner with you. This week I'm sharing a spotlight stamping technique.
I started by laying the globe and stand dies from the Big World Die Set into place on my card base. Then, using a pencil, I drew around them with a light pencil line. I then stamped some flowers and leaves from Heart Flowers Stamp Set into place using Limestone, Silver Stone, and Industrial Gray inks.
Once I was happy with my monochromatic floral arrangement, I then added a sheet of acetate over my card base to act as a mask. This way I can stamp over the other flower images on the card base and not make a mark on them! Then I cut out the globe from Big World Die Set using white cardstock and the stand from gold cardstock. I set aside the gold globe stand for later. Then I added the globe die cut into place over my acetate mask. Using Altenew glue tape, I adhered it down on the acetate sheet. I took the same images I used for the card base and stamped over them, this time using bold, bright colors. I used Pinkalicious, Ruby Red and Volcano Lake inks for the flowers and Parrot and Olive for the leaves.
Once I had finished stamping the flowers, I added a sentiment into place on the globe die cut. When all of the stamping was complete, I removed the acetate sheet mask. I also erased the pencil guideline on the card base. I then added the globe back into place, this time using foam tape, and added the gold globe stand die cut using glue tape.
