Stamping Layering Tips + GIVEAWAY

Hello! Today I am sharing tips for stamp layering stamp sets… and how to create many images at once. I really like this method and I am hoping it helps you, too.

Over the past couple years, I have shared many different ways to do stamp layering. By showing multiple ways, I am hoping that everyone can find a method that works best for them. Today’s is one of my favorite and one that I have done in make-n-takes in past shows. This method is excellent for making many images at once. (I always make more than one card at a time, so I love it.)

To understand how I was able to stamp all of these flowers and leaves at once, be sure to watch the video!

My first example features the incredibly gorgeous Altenew Build-A-Flower Sakura Blossoms Set (ALT | SSS). (These “Build-A-Flower” sets are sold with the stamps and dies together.) I stamped the flowers and leaves with Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, Heart Beat, Parrot, and Bamboo Altenew Inks (ALT | SSS). I created twigs from Altenew Create a Wreath Die (ALT | SSS) and added the pieces to a notecard covered with a Altenew Spring Shower Cover Die Cut (ALT | SSS). The sentiment is from the Altenew Hello Sunshine Stamp Set (ALT | SSS).

I like that the Altenew Build-A-Flower Sakura Blossoms Set (ALT | SSS) cuts out the images with no white trim. So cool…

I can’t get enough of these blossom images. Here I used Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue, Sapphire, Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, and Deep Iris Inks (ALT | SSS). The sentiment (which is one of my favorite sayings) is from the Altenew Build a Flower Gardenia Set (ALT | SSS).

Lucy’s Cards Chunky Rainbow Sparkle Jewels are the perfect touch for the center of these flowers! I added them and all the dimensional flowers with my new favorite adhesive – Gina K Connect Glue.

OOoooooooo… these blues make me swoon – Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue, and Sapphire (ALT | SSS). The sentiment is also from the Altenew Build a Flower Gardenia Set (ALT | SSS).

I also made a bunch of images using the new Altenew Build A Flower Peony Blossom Set (ALT | SSS). This is another set where the dies cut out the images with no white trim! I again used the Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, Heart Beat, Parrot, and Bamboo Altenew Inks (ALT | SSS) and added the pieces to a notecard covered with a Altenew Spring Shower Cover Die Cut (ALT | SSS). The “hello” is from the Flower Arrangement Die Set (ALT | SSS).

For these flowers I used Citrus Burst, Fresh Lemon, Honey Drizzle, Rubellite, Pinkalicious, and Pink Diamond Altenew Inks (ALT | SSS). The “thank you” is also from the Flower Arrangement Die Set (ALT | SSS).

For most of my flowers, I used Gina K Connect Glue and Scrapbook Adhesives Thin Foam Squares to give the petals a bit of dimension. On these next two examples, I adhered them flat. This takes less time and still looks good. For these flowers, I used Heart Beat, Vineyard Berry, Velvet, Persian Blue, and Sapphire Altenew Inks (ALT | SSS).

I have used the Altenew Spring Shower Cover Die (ALT | SSS) before (find the card HERE), but I just had to use it again. Such a gorgeous die and great for a tone-on-tone background.

Here we have Dew Drops, Aqualicious, and Teal Cave Altenew Inks (ALT | SSS). My colors…

The Altenew Build A Flower Peony Blossom Set (ALT | SSS) also look great stacked together to form dimensional flowers.

This method of stamping layering also works with traditional stamp and die sets where there is a white trim around the edge of the image. Here we have the Altenew Build a Flower Gardenia Set (ALT | SSS). Such a lovely flower in Dew Drops, Aqualicious, and Teal Cave Altenew Inks (ALT | SSS)…

I felt the flower in the Altenew Build a Flower Gardenia Set (ALT | SSS) worked nicely with the flower in the older Altenew Remember This Stamp Set (ALT | SSS). I used the same red and yellow inks as above…

This last example is the most simple to pull together and would be great as part of a card set. That yellow is so happy.

  1. As always, Jennifer, your post is brimming over with beautiful creations and offers unlimited inspiration!

  2. GORGEOUS flowers, STUNNING cards and EXCITING technique!
    WOW – your template is SO COOL and SUPER EFFICIENT – THANK YOU so much for sharing this CLEVER idea with us, I can’t wait to try it!
    My favourite … well that is a tough one, they’re ALL WONDERFUL, all I can say is that I ADORED the Sakura Blossoms when I first saw them, they especially delight after seeing your video and because the stamp goes right to the edge of the die, not leaving any edges.

  3. This is really hard to choose they are all so beautiful. well here it goes the Altenew Build A Flower Peony Blossom set but I also like the Gardenia lol I’ll take all of the about for 100 Alex lol

  4. I just love all of your videos and how-to’s! I can & do spend hours watching them learning new ways to craft! You are so wonderful at explaining everything to us & also making us feel like we can make it too!
    I will probably watch your videos on all of these Altenew Stamps sets as I get them before I try to create with them as I learn so much from you before I start!
    I am looking forward to getting the Anemone & the Gardenia Build-a-Flower sets! I just ordered the Mum one today!
    Thank you for taking the time to make all of your wonderful videos Jennifer!

  5. I love this!! I am a total template person and love tactics that spell “efficiency.” I think the Peony Blossom Flower Builder is my favourite — reminds me of graceful Hawaiian leis.

  6. Jennifer, thank you for the beautiful cards and creative tutorial. Altenew stamps and dies are so creative. Congratulations to the winner.

  7. I wood love to be able to try all of this new things i have learned! We live in the crountry and only vet to town twicea mounth ,so its hard to get supplys!
    Keep crafting
    Denise

  8. Gorgeous cards Jennifer! Your videos are always so inspiring. I’m trying to be better about making all the little embellishments like these flowers into cards. I get a little carried away with making them and then run out of steam before turning them all into cards. I have a whole box of stuff that needs to be turned into cards, but I’m busy trying out your new ideas and don’t get to it. So my stash grows and grows! See, it’s all your fault! Ha.

  9. Thanks for your video. I’ve had trouble layering and I think this will help as once I test that the stamp is lined up, I can go for it. It has been hit and miss till now. Thanks again – off to die cut some roses!
