I have intentions of making this a feature stamp for one week's worth of posting here on my blog - yes, that is 7 different ways to use this stamp so you can see just how versatile it really is! But, instead of waiting to get my 7 techniques and cards organised to go, I just couldn't resist in participating in a challenge set by Kristina Werner on her blog of creating a one-layer card, and I just knew the technique I wanted to use - 3D Stamping!
Stamps: Medallion (new from Autumn-Winter Mini)
Cardstock: Soft Suede (new In Color from Autumn-Winter Mini)
Inks: Whisper White (pigment ink), Soft Suede
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, White Embossing Powder, heat gun
Technique 3D Stamping [solid stamps work best for this technique]
- Ink up your solid stamp image with Whisper White ink.
- Stamp image onto a piece of coloured cardstock.
- Leave until dry or speed up the process with a heat tool.
- Using your Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp the same image, with ink colour the same as your cardstock, on to the imaging sheet [remember how you have your Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamp lined up hard into the handle's corner].
- Place the imaging sheet over the Whisper White stamped image and move it slightly until the two images are not completely aligned, just a little "off".
- Position your Stamp-a-ma-jig handle in the same way when you first stamped the imaging sheet.
- Keeping the handle in place, remove the imaging sheet from your cardstock and with the same ink colour as your cardstock, restamp the image. Your second image should be slightly "off" the first stamped image producing a 3D or embossed effect.
- Finish your card.
I really like this technique and I am also enjoying using this new In Color Soft Suede. I think you will be seeing some more of it as I promote the new Medallion stamp in my feature posts! This is also one of the techniques that attendees at my next stamp class will be getting to try as well as another that I will share later.
I hope you enjoy trying this technique out for yourself and thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment and let me know if you have made a One Layer Card before and if it something you like or not.
