Video: Stretching Color Layering Stamps

by Hero Arts Info February 22, 2016

Who said color layering stamp sets only have to be used for color layering, for creating one multi-colored image? Yes, they work beautifully for that (and always produce stunning results), but can also be stretched in a way.

Today I am inviting you to try to use each color layering stamp individually. To be able to better explain what I have in mind I've filmed a video tutorial, I'm sharing it below.

Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful using For You Color Layering Stamp Set by Yana Smakula

I started by stamping Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful sentiment from the [hero_product_link sku="CL925" text="Dare To Dream set"] onto a white panel using [hero_product_link sku="AF101" text="Black ink"] and also added a Love You one from the [hero_product_link sku="CL944" text="For You Flowers Color Layering set"] using [hero_product_link sku="AF263" text="Ultra Pink ink"]. The sentiment needed to be stamped first to work as a guide for my card and tell me where my edge stamping needed to be.

Next I started working on my flowers, the floral image from the [hero_product_link sku="CL944" text="For You Flowers Color Layering set"] has 3 layers, I used each one on its own and stamped each using a different color of ink. The top layer (the 3rd layer) was stamped using [hero_product_link sku="AF263" text="Ultra Pink ink"], the medium (the 2nd layer) was stamped using [hero_product_link sku="AF242" text="Soft Cantaloupe"] and the bottom layer (the 1st layer), the solid one, was stamped using [hero_product_link sku="AF275" text="Soft Vanilla ink"].

I also added a few stamped leaves using Soft Leaf and Soft Green inks, I only used the 2nd layer, a detailed one, and stamped it first using one color of ink and than the other slightly offsetting. Lastly I added several small leaf images stamped in [hero_product_link sku="AF263" text="Ultra Pink ink"].

To make this project pop I heat embossed the sentiment over a stamped one (I made sure to offset the embossing so that there was a little black shadow) and also heat embossed the top layer of the flower 3 times using [hero_product_link sku="PW115" text="Brass embossing powder"].

Even though I used a color layering stamp set I was still able to stamp each layer independently of the other layers to create a beautiful floral design on my card.
