- Stamp your image using Whisper White craft ink and allow it to dry (or use your heat tool).
- Line your positioning sheet up with the corner of your Stamp-a-ma-jig (SAMJ). Now ink the image you just used with dye ink (Soft Suede). Line it up with your SAMJ and stamp image on your positioning sheet.
- Place the positioning sheet over the white stamped image, slightly off-center from the white image.
- Place the SAMJ along the imaging sheet (see tip below)
- Remove positioning sheet and line the stamp up with the SAMJ and stamp image over the white image with dye ink (Soft Suede)
- Your stamped image should give the illusion of being embossed.
- Finish your card
I actually stamped the flower image twice on the Crumb Cake card stock with Cajun Craze and then cut the 2 flowers out. I placed a dimensional in the centre of the bottom flower to mount the second flower on. The second flower I also cut out but cut into the leaves a bit more and then turned the edges up slightly using my bone folder.
The butterfly was stamped in Garden green ink on the Crumb Cake card and then cut out. I used a tiny stip of dimensional on the wrong side of the butterfly and turned the wings up slightly.
The sentiment piece I used my SAMJ – I stamped the label on the Crumb Cake card using Garden Green ink. I’ve then used Cajun Craze to stamp the sentiment. I used my SAMJ to place the sentiment exactly where I wanted it. I then cut it out as a little banner and mounted it on Garden Green card. I’ve used dimensionals to adhere it to the card but before that I used my bone folder to give the piece a bit of a wave effect.
Well, that’s it for this week’s technique and I’m mailing this card out to a friend on one of my groups. Try and pop back again soon. I’ll have some blog candy to give away next week, so make sure you come back then to see what it’s all about.
