Mini tutorial with a giveaway!


Hello and good morning dear friends! ^__^

I’m Halak and on this lovely Sunday morning, I bring to you a mini tutorial on how to use your layered stamps + a fun giveaway!

Before we move onto the projects, let’s check out the stamped images :

Always use the right ink. The image you see above is a perfect example of that.

The flower on the left is two layered with 1 distress ink and 1 dye ink combination, whereas the flower on the right is all three layers with 2 distress inks and 1 dye ink.

When I tested out layered flower ink combinations, I found out that using more than 1 distress ink leads to a blurred image.

So, if you don’t have a lot of colors, use distress inks by all means, but, don’t use more than one distress ink for a flower or it will end up looking like the right hand side flower.

Trick to getting the flower layered perfectly

There are two ways to stamp a layered set.

1. You can go from light to dark ink or,
2. You can progress from dark to light ink.

I personally prefer the progression from dark to light by using a dark color as outline first so that getting the next layers is easy because I can see the image outline while positioning my next stamp.

Peek-a-boo Designs Layered Dahalias stamp set is constructed in such a way that you can use just two layers and create beautiful dimensional flowers.

If you want added depth in your stamped image, there is always the option to use all three layers from the stamp set, but I feel, for the folks just starting out, it’s a great idea to practice with two layers first.

Let’s check out the projects :

Project #1

First up is this CAS project featuring the Layered Dahlias stamp set and cutting die.

Steps :

Stamped and die-cut the flowers.
Fussy-cutting is such a pain sometimes and I was so glad to have the die for this set. It helped me cut out the flowers in a jiffy!

Stenciled the RHS of the white card base using the Leafy Delight stencil and adhered a silver strip of  cardstock.

Matted Wine Cardstock onto white card base and adhered flowers.

Adhered sentiment that I die-cut using the Word Inspire Die and gave it a coat of glitter.

Finished it off with some white and clear sequins.

Project #2

I went a little mixed media on this one.

Apart from the layered leaves in the stamp set, for added dimension, once you stamp and die-cut / fussy-cut the flowers, you can pair them up with mulberry leaves like I did in this project.

Steps :

For my background, I first layered woodgrain design pattern paper and some washi tape.

Die-cut background using the third largest rectangle from the Rounded Rectangle Dual Stitched Die

Used Arrows and BOXtacular stencils to create textured look.

Also used a die-cut from the Graceful Lattice Die as a stencil in the background.

Adhered the Word Dream Die as the sentiment and the flower from the Layered Dahlias set with a mulberry leaf.

Finished it off with some sequins and a tiny heart shaped sticker.

So that’s how I did these projects and I hope these tid-bits of information helped clear some of the doubts and queries on layered stamp sets.

Now it’s time for the Giveaway! ^__^
