Hello! Today I am sharing spotlight stamp layering techniques… and also tips for creating shaped cards.

Spotlight stamp layering is a fun technique that results in two cards. I have shown variations of this technique in the past (see below) and felt it was worth doing again! Be sure to watch for the how-to and many tips.
My cards feature the new Simon Says Stamp WPlus9 Saying Hi Stamp Set and WPlus9 Hexagon Dies. I am in love with both of these! I used the large hexagon die to create two white cardstock pieces. On one of them, I stamped images with Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink and Reverse Confetti Stone Ink. On the one, I stamped in the exact same spots (thanks to my MISTI Stamping Tool!) with bright ink colors. I then die cut a smaller hexagon from the center of each and swapped them.
You can see how the pattern is continuous across the card. Such a fun look…
By the way, this great Simon Says Stamp WPlus9 Saying Hi Stamp Set is limited edition, so hurry if it is something you would like to get!
I also wanted to show that the WPlus9 Hexagon Dies work great on traditional shaped cards, too…
At the end of my video, I show how to do this technique without a stamping tool. (And honestly, I think I like this method the best!) I first stamped a panel with the Simon Says Stamp WPlus9 Saying Hi Stamp Set and Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink. I then cut a small hexagon from the bottom right. On this small piece, I stamped on top of the light grey images with colorful inks. I then added the piece back in place on a card.
Here you can see the continuous pattern across the cards…
