I really enjoy stamp layering stamp sets… they give such realistic results. However, I am always looking for new and creative ways to use them. Today’s tip of using vellum makes layering simple and requires only one ink color!

The Altenew Camellia Stamp Set is a gorgeous set with a large flower and cluster of leaves… and perfect for showcasing vellum stamp layering. I stamped the first/solid layer on cardstock with a dark ink. I then stamped the next two layers with the same ink on vellum and clear heat embossed. It is easy to line up the images this way! After adhering them together, I die cut them with the coordinating die.

For the first card, I used Altenew Lagoon Dye Ink for the flower and Altenew Moss Dye Ink for the leaves. I added them to a card along with a stitched frame and (discontinued) gold embellishments. Oh – and I added a layered bud from the Altenew Garden Treasures Stamp Set.

For each card, I used the “thank you” die from the Altenew Majestic Bloom Die Set along with Altenew Gold Foil Cardstock. This gives just the right amount of shine.

This next example features Altenew Firebrick Dye Ink. I really like that this technique only requires one ink for a layered flower.

I also created one card with a bit of a different design. That lovely purple color is from Altenew Deep Iris Dye Ink.

Oh – and don’t forget the matching envelopes with a white heat embossed sentiment from the Altenew Camellia Stamp Set.

I hope you try this vellum stamp layering technique. It works with most layering stamp sets and gives a new look!

  1. Jennifer,
    You are a blessed creative crafter. Your videos are thorough but not too wordy, your voice is peaceful. The Lord has blessed you with a gift and you are not only using that gift, you share it with others. I’m sure you would be a wonderful person to know on a day to day basis. Your cards are gorgeous, creative, not enough words to do you justice. Thank you for creating and sharing. I can’t wait to see what you do next. Thank you for the vellum tips and layering stamp use teaching.
    Thank You, God Bless You!!

  2. Hello jennifer i follow ur videos and i am highly inspired by ur work not just in ur videos but also outside . U mentioned in one of ur videos u helped make the handouts for the teacher which is a very kind gesture . Keep up the good work. Handmade kindness

  3. Love your videos Jennifer! Very glad I found your site cause I learned so much through watching the videos. Now just got to get layering stamps. Thanks so much for sharing every thing.

  4. Hi Jen
    I was wondering if the double-stitched frame technique you used will work with any single-stitched frame die? I’ve tried using a set I already have – taped the two frame dies together, ran it through the Big Shot, but it ended up cutting it out with only one stitch around the frame instead of two! Do you have a video (or know of one) where this technique is explained further? Thanks.

  5. Hello Jennifer,
    I have just tried this technique of yours, with the “To the Moon Stamp Set” from altenew (embossing with white powder).
    The moon looks AMAZING.
    Thank you SO MUCH.
