Back to Basics #4 Two Step Stamping

Hi Guys,

Hope you are having a lovely sunny day as we are today! The only trouble is firstly it isn't good for my hayfever and secondly I have been mostly indoors as my Mum wanted some company out shopping.

But back to today's post, it is another of my Back to Basics videos and it's about two step stamping.

Two step stamping is a form of stamping where you stamp an image then 'superimpose' another image over the top to complete the design, it is something some people are a little unsure of, particularly as the stamp sets in the catalogue don't do the finished article justice.

It is also necessary to get the images lined up accurately - it will be easy with the photopolymer sets in the new catalogue but is also made super easy with the traditional rubber stamps if you use the Stampamajig.

Here is an image from Stippled Blossoms - a two step set...

Here is another...

You stamp the lighter colour first then overlay the darker colour... But you can see how for yourself here. (And tomorrow I'll show you the finished card!)

See you back again tomorrow!

    Paula, did you use a punch for the flowers? If so, which one?


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.

I love to hear from you.
