It's all About Layering your Images!

What makes stamping layered images so fun to create with.. is you get a new look each time with just a small change of color, position of stamp or type of media used when stamping! I have been a scrap booker for the better part of 18 years now, having newly joined the art of home made cards. I gotta say! I am hooked! Making a home made card allows me to really let my creativity flow! For my Level Two Layering Class with the AECP program,

I used Beautiful Day Stamp Set for Card ONE. What an amazing stamp set! To create this card, I first stamped the flower and leaf images using the inks of sunkissed, buttercream, caramel toffee and paper bag. I then die cut the images out and played around a bit with the layout of the card design. Once I knew how the end result would be, I took the #Altenew's Mod Squares 3D embossing folder, stamped some floral images directly onto the embossing folder and added my die cut florals. I popped up the flowers with foam tape. I ended with a sentiment from the Fancy Greetings Set that was embossed with black for a bold ending!

I used the Peony Bouquet Stamp Set for card TWO. This is one of my absolute FAVORITE sets! When layering with the Peony Bouquet set, I find it best to begin with the outline. By stamping the outline first, the rest of the images will set easily within the image and the Peony Bouquet Stamp Set comes with a layering guide if this skill is new to you! I like arranging real flowers in a vase, and when I create a card, my mind sort of does the same...I arrange the layered images in such a way to create a cascading bouquet! I stamped the larger flowers first, then filled in the white space with the smaller buds and leaves. Colors used were #Altenew's Misty Morning, Cloudy Sky, Nimbus and Evening Gray. Once the stamping was completed, I mounted this onto gray cardstock followed by a glacier blue cardstock. To give the card some dimension, I used foam tape to pop up the first layer along with the sentiment. To finish off the card, I added a few sequins! I hope this inspired you to create your own layered floral images! See you next time in the little craft corner!
