Stamping is a satisfying creative experience for many reasons, and one of them is the flexibility it offers. Make your projects as simple or complex as you like, with as few or as many color combinations as you want. Whatever you do, the results are almost sure to be amazing!
One fun technique is to “lengthen” the image, as we did with the Tu es formidable tag. First, we stamped the candle image on a piece of Basic White Cardstock, then cut the cardstock in half. We then adhered the two pieces to the tag front and hid the gap with the sentiment. Kind of tricky and kind of fun!
To add a colorful touch to our Perfection card front and Schönen Geburtstag gift box belly band, we used a variation of tone-on-tone stamping using an ink that is slightly darker than the cardstock. You could also use the coordinating ink color or VersaMark ink to achieve a lighter tone-on-tone look.
Tip: While you’re at it, create extra tone-on-tone stamped cardstock for use on future projects. Before long you’ll have a nice collection of Designer Series Paper—handstamped by you!
