Quick Stamp Layering – MISTI Stamping Tool

January 17, 2018

Hello there! Today’s video shares a quick way to get beautiful stamp layering using the MISTI stamping tool and save lots of time. I share a couple easy tips to create stamp layered images fast on cards.

(Looking for anything that I used in the video? All of the supplies are linked with images to multiple stores at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used when possible. Watch the full video HERE in HD!)

To create lots of beautiful and 3D flowers, I used the Build-A-Flower: Sakura Blossom set (which also has some great sentiments)!

To save a lot of time, I stamped each layer in the MISTI on several sheets in the same spot. Then, I aligned the next layer and stamped it on several sheets over top the first layers. I continued stamping until the flowers and leaves were created!

I also used some of the awesome sentiments to create soft backgrounds behind the flowers. I stamped the sentiments in different patterns on the backgrounds to create some interest on the cards.

I had lots of fun playing with different color combinations on the flowers. You can mix and match different colors and see how they turn out! If you struggle with choosing colors, Altenew has great ink pads in collections of colors that layer perfectly together.
