KRAFTY TIPS AND TUTES - Using more than one stamp

Hi Krafty friends!

Krafty Girl Stephanie with you today :-) I wanted to demistify the use of multiple stamps from a same set and share how to create a scene with them.

You don't need anything special, just a stamping block and some ink! I would suggest to use an acrylic one, as it's easier for placement when you see through.

On this card, I used the A Purr-fect Day stamp set and stamped several accessories to create the scene. First, let's all agree that the designers do a fantastic job at creathing the sets, because every single item matches the whole thing. You don't even have to mask them!

As you can see, I used two cats, the thinking bubble, the aquarium and the wool ball.

On this one, I used the male gnome, the squirrel, the bushes, the clover, the mushrooms and the snail several times, along with the lady gnome from the Whimsical Gnomes set. I stamped everything on a large panel and cut it to size (4"x6") when finished so that it would look nice on the edges.

How about a classic touch? Black on white with every jewel from the Let Your Light Shine set. I stamped the whole panel, and then die cut through it, so we could see the sentiment that was stamped inside. Think about it; with this small trick, you can reuse the diecut piece for a second card!

Black and white can be classic, or trendy when seen through a piece of vellum, like this Butterfly Dreams card!

Just like the Whimsical Gnomes card, I stamped every image and resized the Buds and Bloms stamp set panel for a different look.

And a great favourite of mine with the Oceans of love set; everything is stamped with black ink, but coloured in monochromatic tones on the outside of the die-cut!

So, do you feel like you can tackle more than one stamp on a single card, now? I encourage you all to try it and share on the Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Friends Facebook group :-)
