Video: White Ink Stamp Layering + Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

Hello! Today I have another way to use layering stamp sets… using white pigment ink. This post also is part of an Altenew Blog Hop

In many past posts (including THIS one), I have expressed my head-over-heels love for stamp sets that offer layering to form incredible stamp images. They make me feel like a true artist! Today I thought I would show yet another way to use layer stamp sets, but on colored cardstocks. The stamp set I used here is awesome – the new Altenew Vintage Flowers.

The process is simple. First, stamp the bottom stamp layer with white pigment ink (I love Hero Arts Unicorn Ink) on kraft cardstock. Next, stamp the second layer with a color dye ink… just slightly offset. This gives a bit of dark color (in the areas where the color ink touches the kraft cardstock) and a lot of light color (where the color ink is on the white ink). You could add a third layer with a darker color, but I decided to skip that here as I felt it wasn’t needed.

If desired, you can add highlights with a simple white colored pencil, and/or brown, green and pink pencils.

I finished off the card with an Altenew “just a note” sentiment and also made a matching envelope…

  1. Jennifer I love this card. I am happy that you used Kraft card stock. I love the look of Kraft but it can to me, at times, seems limited to “rustic” themes. Also, many colors just don’t look good on the Kraft cardstock. However, you show us how versatile it really is. This card is delicate and the use of white as a base for the color pink opens up a world of choices when using Kraft card stock. It is gorgeous. Jennifer, Your videos have inspired me to return to card making and scrapbooking. On another note, Tasmin please forgive me. I Commented on your beautiful blue flower card previously. I misspoke and said ” green ” instead of “brown” stems. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I love this technique and tried it with another brand of white colored pencil because the single Prismacolor brand (no matter where I look) are always out of stock! 🙂

  3. As always I am so impressed with the level of creativity of Jennifer’s brilliance. I started making cards as a way to promote my photography but found my techniques lacking after many years of digital work, I had forgotten to keep my mind open. In fact layering in photography is an important trick so stamp layering made complete sense to me. It was the light under dark that was the big reveal here. It brought such dimension and realism to the stamp image. Now if only someone would convince Altenew to distribute their amazing stamps (especially the ones with those defined thick borders on the images) in Canada. Neither my Michaels location or DeSerres here in Quebec know of the brand. And Amazon.ca choked on the search. This stamp over an out of focus darker tree photo using pigments inks would be amazing! Thanks again for an amazing inspiring tutorial Jennifer.

  4. Love, love, love the new release especially striped floders and the Moon! Fabulous inspiration as usual Jennifer, thank you.

  5. Layering is a favorite technique of mine. I have not tried it with white ink yet, but am excited to get my creative juices flowing!

  6. I love love the white on the craft card stock. Also love the idea of prisma colored pencil highlight. Such a nice idea. This stamp set is lovely would love to own it myself. Thanks Jennifer .

  7. Jennifer you never fail to amaze me!
    I just watched you use bold colored layers of embossing powder on black cardstock. I loved the deep intensity!

    Now I jwatched you layer white Inks first with colored dye ink on top, and a bit of colored pencils here and there. I love this VERY soft, very feminine look just as much as the intense card!

    Two totally different looks…but I can’t wait to try both of them this week! I’m very thankful you share these videos! Thank you!

    He-IS-Able!
