Video: Shadow Stamping + Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there. Today’s video shares how to do shadow stamping… plus a look at the new Simon Says Stamp inks.

I’ve shared how to do shadow stamping (aka ghost stamping) with layering stamps in the past, but today’s cards feature a fun trick that is great for creating multiple cards. These cards feature the new Simon Says Stamp Many Thanks layering (or building) stamp set. The images are designed to stamp on top of each other to build pretty flowers.

In the video, I used the MISTI stamping tool. However, you can also use a large acrylic block. I arranged a cluster of the first layer of flower stamps in one corner of a piece of colored cardstock and stamped them with white pigment ink. I then rotated the paper and stamped them again in the opposite corner. This trick makes the process so much faster! I did this on ten pieces of colored cardstock.

I clustered the next layer of flower stamps so they would stamp directly on the first. I stamped them with various matching colors of the new Simon Says Stamp dye inks. The overlapping of the white pigment ink and the colored dye ink gives the illusion that three inks were used instead of two.

To add even more depth, I went in with a white Prisma colored pencil and added some highlighting.

I finished off the cards by white heat embossing a variety of the Simon Says Stamp Large Scripty sentiments in the center of the of the cards. I adhered all the panels to white notecards using fun foam in between for dimension. This would be a great set of notecards to give as a gift.

You may have noticed the new grid paper I’ve been working on in my videos. This is a new large paper pad that is perfect for stamping on. It helps line things up and measure. When it gets too dirty, simply tear it off and move on to a clean sheet. It measures 11×17 inches and has 50 sheets. I have wanted this for a long time!

In the video, I also share a closer look at the newest 12 colors of Simon Says Stamp inks. More on that below. 🙂

  1. I love the cards – great technique! Thanks so much for the ink color comparison – it really helped me see which new colors would work best with my existing hero arts shadow inks!

  2. The use of the stamp you made is stunning! Actually I don’have any set that i could youse for, but it will stay on top of the list for a while!

  3. You make this card look awesome with the use of the stamps with the white and color inks and by using the Misti Stamping Tool, it seems like it would be so easy to do and the colors are really stand-out and cool.

  4. So many pretty cards! I just love the nice new colors from SSS! I’d love to get better at making multiples! Maybe that Misti will end up on my wish list!

  5. I love this outlook of the clock card you made with Yana! It made me feel like making some and start a tea party! 🙂 Thanks for showing us how to do this. I can’t wait for my order for Sissix Big Shot to come in the mail real soon!


  6. Jennifer you make this look soooooooooooo easy. I realize it is just me but the cards I made like yours above, well they don’t look like yours. LOL! You are such a talent and thank you for sharing all you do. Blessings!
