Ever get a two-step stamp set and wonder where to start? Sometimes if can be tricky to get the hang of which stamps layer together and how to line them up just right. If you are a Sursee subscriber, these fun stamps were your surprise several months ago and I know some of you were wondering this very thing with this fun set of stamps!
If you missed this Sursee, you can now find the in the shop! Scroll to the end of the post for links!
This set was designed with a whimsical feel and wasn't meant to line up perfectly. This gives you lots of room for not being perfect (which I embrace whole heartedly!!!).
See it in action in this video on Youtube!
You may want to practice a bit with new stamps to get the feel of how they work together before going to cardstock. The finished product of these little birds is too cute! How about this simple card from Ilina? It is just adorable!
Here's another example from Ilina. By inking the solid stamp with two colors you can get a really nice effect and the technique is so simple! The Birdie's Branch die in white on white adds a fun pop of interest to the background on this card.
Two-step stamping doesn't have to be intimidating! Remember, stamping is a hand-craft so no two images will look the same. Just get in there and have fun with it. A little birdie told me your cards will be fab!
