Split Coloring (2-For-1 Cards)

Welcome! Today I show how you can two-cards-for-one with a split coloring technique. This one works well with almost any stamps that calls for coloring.

I need to start out by saying that Dawn Woleslagle – the owner of WPlus9 – is one of the most talented people I know… and one of the kindest. Every time I use her products I feel honored to be doing so. I adore her. (I share this because I think it is good to know that good people are being these good products!)

The large floral image in the new WPlus9 Kind Soul Stamp Set is gorgeous and screams for beautiful coloring! I am not the best at coloring, but I took a stab at it with my Copics on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper. I also clear heat embossed the same image on Gina K. Peach Bellini Cardstock (SO pretty) and then cut both of the pieces in the same place. Now I have pieces for two split-colored cards…

I also added that oh-so-perfect sentiment – also from the same WPlus9 Kind Soul Stamp set – on a black strip between the stamped pieces. The “hello” is also from WPlus9 and I cut it from gold cardstock.

Ahhhhhh… that stamp is incredible!!!

I am a big fan of techniques that result in more than one card. I have done a similar technique several times in the past… be sure to check out THIS video.

Oh and I promise those peach flowers match the cardstock in real life. The photo isn’t the best. Sorry!

At the end of the video I shared a quick look at the other new WPlus9 products. You can find them at Simon Says Stamp or WPlus9. Hope this was helpful!

  6. I recently watched Dawn’s video on no-line watercoloring with this image and knew it was a stamp I would love to color and use. I ordered it and it should be here in 2-3 days. So very timely video for me to see some other things I can do with the stamp. Thank you, Jennifer!

  7. You’ve created a beautiful card with this stamp set. Thanks for sharing this technique with us.

  8. Thank you for sharing such a fun idea! I have to look through my stamps to see if something works for this idea! Unfortunately I can’t get every stamp that I lay my eyes on 🙁

  9. Totally in love with this split design. These cards are beautiful Jennifer, stunning. They have such an impact. I am getting this stamp for sure, I am such a fan of Wplus9, I like that they don’t do loads of releases, but when they do, the products are always so well thought out! Thanks for your video ??? xx

  10. OMGOSH for Dawn @WPlus9, This release is awesome. I’m in love with the layering petunia.I’m giddy over this technique to.Practice I’ll need.Thank you Jennifer.

  11. Love this technique! What a great stamp and beautiful cards! Jennifer–thank you so much for all you share!

  12. Your cards are beautiful! I love to color but it does take longer to complete a card when doing so. Your technique for making two cards in one is brilliant! I can’t wait to try it!

  13. I’m so inspired by this great idea. I love being able to make 2 cards like these. they are so pretty!

  14. This is such a wonderful technique — I’m definitely going to be doing this. The new WPlus9 release with the flowers is just spectacular. They are on my wishlist!

  15. Saw the mini video on IG, and look forward to watching the full episode at the weekend ;-P These cards are absolutely beautiful 🙂

  16. WOW!!!! I didn’t realize just how BIG this stamp was! THANK YOU Jennifer for showing us! I HAVE BEEN eye-balling it for sometime! Your coloring IS GORGEOUS!!! Stop talking yourself down with the Copics! You colored this GORGEOUSLY!!!! (AND I’ve seen you color other things JUST AS WELL!!!) TOTALLY STUNNING JENNIFER!!! (My husband was impressed too when I showed him…..!) 😉

  17. I can’t wait to try this technique!!! Thank you for always making such simple to understand and amazing cards you make.

  18. Jennifer, I always love your videos, and these cards are gorgeous! I am expecting this stamp set to arrive today and really love how large and wide it is. Love getting two cards for one image too! Thanks again! Hugs!

  19. Awesome technique! the more i see this stamp being used the more i want it. Thanks for sharing you knowledge and great cards

  20. Gorgeous! You’ve out done yourself plus taught me how an intimidating card can actually be easy. Before I got my MISTI, I used the top clear plate from my big shot to stamp large stamps. Worked great! Just another option for ways to stamp those large stamps.

  21. Beautiful cards! So getting into this card making/stamp doing/embossing thing can be quite pricey! I did recently purchase some stamps/dies to with the stamps and have on hand some embossing and a few copic pens. I am going to try this technique in your video with the things I have on hand.

    Very inspiring and thank you for the video for more DIY instructions!

    Beginner in this card/stamp thing!
