Creative Inking Blog Hop – 2 Step Stamping

Welcome to this month’s Creative Inking Blog Hop.  This month we are focusing on 2 step stamping.  It is one of the easiest techniques in my humble opinion that creates great dimension and a very cool finished look.  I chose to use one of the most popular Product Suites from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog – the Color Theory Product Suite.   The Product suite includes the Colorful Seasons stamp set which is bundled with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits which I have used on this card.  My stash of sympathy cards was pathetically low, so I had to work on replenishing it!

Colorful Seasons, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters,

What I love about the Colorful Seasons bundle is that it is a stamp set that can be used in all seasons, feminine or masculine – and can spand many generations making it a great staple in your stamp set arsenal.

For this card, I used Garden Green, Bronze Foil and Very Vanilla.  Easy.  Summer, fall or spring.  I found that the leaves were very easy to line up the 2 step stamp because it is a photopolymer stamp set. . . love the peek through ability of the clear stamp!

Here you can see the great accent of the Copper Foil layer.   You’ll also see that I flicked the finished pieces with the Soft Suede marker.  I also used that marker to draw a line around the Stitched Shape oval which contains the sympathy greeting.  It’s an easy accent that packs a punch.

Then check out the Copper Trim!  It’s a loose-weave copper ribbon that has a zig zag pattern that can be pulled apart.  Super fun to work with!
