Set Back Stamping + GIVEAWAY

Hi again! Today I am back to share ideas for “set back stamping”… where stamped images are set back in their die cut windows. This is a great way to get more out of your stamps and coordinating dies.

These designs and techniques work with any stamps and coordinating dies. Be sure to watch the video to see how to create these cards! I do find it helpful to have a stamping tool, such as the MISTI… however it isn’t necessary.

For my first card, I used an image from the Waffle Flower Spice Garden Stamp Set (SSS | WF). I stamped and colored the leaves on a white notecard… and then used the coordinating die to create a pink panel “window” to go around the stamping. I added the panel with craft foam… allowing the stamped image to be “set back.”

Finally, I added a sentiment from the Waffle Flower Always Stamp Set (SSS | WF) and two thin black cardstock strips. Oh! And a bit of shimmer on the leaves with a Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen.

I simply adore the new Waffle Flower Little Painters Stamp Set (SSS | WF)! I used it along with the coordinating dies to create this next set back stamping technique. The sentiment is from the Waffle Flower Rainbows Stamp Set (SSS | WF).

I also added Tonic Crystal Glaze to the paint for a bit of shine.

I really like how the grey cardstock frames the cute stamped images so nicely on this next card. I used the new Waffle Flower Hip Hip Hooray Stamp Set (SSS | WF) – so cute!

Here you can see the dimension behind the the “window”… and the stamping that is thus “set back” a bit.

You can also fill a background with set back stamping. Here I used images from the Waffle Flower Always Stamp Set (SSS | WF).

I especially like the look of this technique with white cardstock for both the background and raised piece.

This next card features the Waffle Flower Bouquet Builder Stamp Set (SSS | WF) and Sunshine Stamp Set (SSS | WF).

I also added shimmer to the stamped image to make it stand out more…

Lila helped me with this next card… picking the colors and which critters to use. I love the Waffle Flower Gym Rat Stamp Set (SSS | WF)! From the outside, you see the critters through the die cut windows…

… and the also show on the inside. This is great to do along the edge of a card!
