Stamped See Through Cards + GIVEAWAY

Hello. Today I am sharing how to create see through cards made up of stamped images! This technique works with many stamps you may have and gives amazing results.

[All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. Multiple stores are also linked in the parentheses following the product name. Compensated affiliate links may be used at no cost to you.]

A few months ago, I shared a video showing how to create see-through cards with background dies. (You can see the video HERE.) So I thought it would be fun to come back and share how to make see through cards from stamped images. Although I used large flower stamps today, you could use any shape or size images.

My first card features the incredibly gorgeous Altenew Build A Flower Peruvian Lily Set (SSS | ALT). I stamped several flowers and leaves with Altenew Ink and then cut them out with their coordinating dies. Be sure to check out the video to see how I connected them together with Gina K Connect Glue for the front panel of the card… with the help of Glad Press N Seal! I added a scored “hinge” at the top and added to a white cardstock panel… forming a card.

The sentiment is from the Altenew Life Is Awesome Stamp Set ( SSS | ALT).

This photo shows how you can see through the front of the card between the connected flowers. There is mini card glued inside to hide a personal message.

My second card has lots of open areas on the front of the card. After cutting out images from the Altenew Needlework Motif Stamp Set (SSS | ALT), I connected them together to create a card front. Again, there is a mini card adhered inside.

I added a sentiment from the Altenew Simply Hello Die (SSS | ALT) and Altenew Kind Words Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). I also coated the die cuts in a thick layer of Ranger Glossy Accents.

This next photo shows how the card front is see-through…

My last card uses the Altenew Beautiful Heart Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). These large images are great for this technique! Instead of having a mini card inside, this one has two circles – one adhered to the back of the front panel of the card and one adhered to the inside of the card – providing a place for the message inside.

The sentiment is formed from the Altenew Simply Hello Die (SSS | ALT) and Altenew Needlework Motif Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

And here you can see the see-through portion action on the card’s front…

You fill us with such wonderful techniques that assist us to produce stunning work & I am very grateful for all you show us, thank you.x

  2. The Build-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily is absolutely gorgeous! It reminds me of some of the beautiful flowers I saw on my trip to Hawaii last year. Your technique is definitely one I am going to put to use…
    Thank you!

  3. Hi! I love watching your videos and learning so many new techniques. I Love the Peruvian Lily set the best. Your card was beautiful! Thanks for sharing all your ideas.

  4. WOW!!! These are beautiful and I can hardly wait to make one. I have ordered the Peruvian Lily. I will also get the Needlework set-it reminds me of creek or Brazilian embroidery- but it was out of stock. But I will get it soon! Thank you for such thorough directions!

  5. Wow these see through cards are AMAZING!! Yes I would definitely try it. Thanks for the inspirations. There are so many things to love in the July release, but the Floral Alphabet Stamp Set jumps out to me.

  6. These cards are gorgeous! You’re so creative! The Beautiful Heart stamp is my favorite of the new sets, followed closely by Kind Words. But I love them all.

  7. Hi Jennifer, Thanks for sharing all your beautiful handmade kindness. My favourite new Altenew product would have to be ‘Life is awesome’ stamp set.

  8. Jennifer, I am a big fan of your. I love all three card but especially the first one stands out to me the most for the excellent colloring chooses. They really pop.

  9. Awesome cards! Thank you for making a video, I definitely want to try your technique. I love the Glad Press N Seal tip, I love that stuff LOL I use it more in my crafting than I do in the kitchen. My favorite item from this release is the Kind Words Stamp Set.

  10. What a very fun idea! This might the the card technique I pick for my grand-girl’s birthday! It’s coming up in a few months, but I am already thinking about it! So glad I watched the video–I was sure this involved acetate! This is way cooler. I love the embroidered flower set and of course the embroidery hoop die is amazing too! Thank you for always encouraging and inspiring.

  11. Jennifer I’m new to your products and cards. But they are so pretty and different. Your always showing new ways to do things. I love the idea about the glad press N seal tip I have to try that. Love everything.

  12. These are beautiful. I have a toss up between the Peruvian Lily set and the Needlework motif. Wish I could get them both.

  13. Gorgeous cards! I always learn so much from your videos. I can’t wait to try this technique. I love all the new florals, but think the Needlework Motif is my favorite.

  14. I had been intimated by these overly stamps but I started watching your videos during my lunch break…the cards are sooo beautiful…I Can’t wait to get my heart floral order to try this “see through” card technique. Watching your videos make it seem like I am crafting with a great friend! Thank you!

  15. the beautiful hearts stamp set is my favorite.
    I found your videos on youtube a few months ago and i am hooked. Thanks for the fresh content and easy to follow instructions.

  16. Love the beautiful heart and kind words. I have to say I especially liked your open Lilly card. The colors were amazing. I had to buy that after I saw your video. 💝

  17. I just ordered the Beautiful Heart stamp set and can’t wsit to use it! My next purchase is going to be the Needlework Motif set. Sigh…I just want them all!

  18. Beautiful — as usual; you are such an outstanding cardmaker! One question: Could you not put the hinge on the back of the card instead of the front? What is the advantage of having it on the front?

  19. This is such a great technique with an awesome result. You never run out of brilliant ideas. Too bad that my fave in this Altenew release is not one of the products you used in your video. Not that I don’t like the ones you used. In fact, it gives me a different perspective on the products by watching you use it. I am still avoiding layering stamps. My favorite BTW is the Floral Alphabet Stamp.

  20. I like both the Beautiful Heart Stamp Set and the Kind Words Stamp Set. I can draw pretty well so I do okay drawing flowers though the stamps are much easier. I have never mastered writing/ lettering so the the Kind Words stamp set would really be great.

  21. Your cards are always inspirational. I love the lily stamp set, it brings the layering out so well. Thanks again for sharing your creativity with us Jennifer.

  22. Can’t wait to try this. Thanks for sharing Jennifer. I like the Needlework Motif set best. Though, it’s hard to pick just one.

  23. Your cards are so amazing! My favorite is the Beautiful Heart Stamp Set. Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas.

  26. These cards are amazing!! The lily stamp set created such a gorgeous card !! Wow!! All the cards ar just lovely. I can’t wait to try this technique. Thank you so much!

  27. Any kind of build a flower set from Altenew is my favorite! So of course I am going to have to say the build a flower set you used is my favorite. Lol. So pretty!!

  28. Thanks for the great inspiration. You mentioned you were going to link the original card inspiration in your blog, i couldn’t find it 🙁 The kind words set is amazing!

  29. What beautiful cards – love the technique, but we don’t have Press and Seal in Australia so I’m wondering what I could use instead. I really like the Around the World Thanks stamps.

  30. I loved watching your video, Jennifer! You make everything look so easy as well as beautiful. My favorite stamp is Life is Awesome. Thanks so much for sharing; I never miss your videos.
