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.

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    I noticed that you are not using the Gemini Jr. in your latest videos, which was the one I was going to buy .Which die cutting machine would you recommend? I love your videos. You always have something new to share.
    Thanks,
    Chris Handy

  2. Thank you for the great idea with both the spotlight stamping and shaped cards. So fun and I am pretty sure I can achieve this with the supplies I have on hand. Blessings to you.

  3. I really like these cards. At first I thought they would be quite time consuming to make but now I realize they are not. That’s a plus! Thanks for your time and wonderful videos Jennifer.

  4. I watched this over at Simon’s, but wanted to stop by and tell you I love it! It looks like something I can maybe do soon! :o) I’m making cards for my sister, so I love the two-fer idea, Hugz!

  5. I have also a few stamp sets with all little stamps, this is a great technique to use them. You have gorgeous cards with the hexagon dies, that is also a great idea to do. Thank you so much Jennifer for all the inspiration.

  6. Like the contrast within the cards. Thanks for showing options not only with regard to stamp tools or not but also options depending on the time available for creating cards. This is invaluable when crafting time is at a premium.

  7. When I’ve thought you couldn’t out do yourself, you do it again!! I love this and so many options…how do you just cut your mats and get them all even?? You are truly amazing and so very talented! Thanks once again, Jennifer!

  8. Brilliant idea, stunning cards from this technique, so glad you showed us this technique on your video, thanks for a great ton of useful information to assist us along my the way. Love this set & the fun font on hello. Wish the UK had a branch of Simon’s as we miss out on some gorgeous sets of stamps, inks etc due to the horrid shipping costs. Couldn’t you convince Heidi to expand, she has fabulous sets we don’t get here lol. Thanks for all the video’s that you put so much time into they are very much looked forward to.

  9. I really love this stamp set but on Day 1 it was sold out. The video you created makes me so happy. I hope they release more of this stamp set so I can buy it.
