Cut Up Stamping + GIVEAWAY

Hello. Today I am sharing how to get new looks for stamped cards simply by cutting them up! This works with any products you may have.

On all of my cards today, I cut/removed thin strips out of stamped panels and then added the pieces onto a card with craft foam for dimension. This gives a fun new look to any card!

My first few cards feature the beautiful Altenew Exotic Tulips Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). I stamped all of the flowers and masked them with the coordinating Altenew Exotic Tulips Mask Stencils (SSS | ALT) before adding a bit of blue ink with my Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes.

Next I cut thin strips from the panel vertically and horizontally and added craft foam to the back of the pieces for dimension. After adding them to a card, I stamped a sentiment from the Altenew Wonderland Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). Oh… and the shimmer on the flowers is from a Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pen.

For my second card, I cut out strips diagonally. Be sure to watch the video to see how easy this is to do!

Check out that dimension…

My last tulip card is super simple… with one diagonal cut-out section. The sentiment is from the Altenew Needlework Motif Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

That sentiment fits perfectly there! I often cut my pieces to a width that works well with a sentiment I have.

Next up… three more floral examples… this time featuring the Altenew Build-A-Flower Hyacinth Bundle (SSS | ALT). I did a bit of masking on each using the coordinating die and Gina K Masking Magic (SSS | GK).

I stamped over this first floral image with light yellow ink and the fabulous Altenew Pinstripe Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). I then randomly cut out strips to create this fun look…

On my next card, I cut larger strips out so that I could add three sentiments.

And my favorite? This simple one.

A little soft blue ink… and one vertical section cut out for a sentiment. Simple yet striking.

This technique of “cut up stamping” also works when you make a mistake. Here, I cut out a section where I messed up my watercolor and replaced it with a sentiment from the Altenew Dotted Blooms Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

These flowers are from the Altenew Beautiful Peony Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) and I watercolored them quickly with the Altenew Spring Garden Watercolor Brush Markers (SSS | ALT).

I also find this technique helps to bring attention to a sentiment on a busy card. Here I used the Altenew Frilled Petals Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

I usually do this technique on a white notecard, but I like the contrast with the colored card…

Another super simple one… featuring the Altenew Baroque Motifs Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) with a few layers of Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder.

Here you can see the dimension you get with multiple layers of heat embossing…

My last card uses the Altenew Dotted Blooms Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). I added highlights to the flowers with my Luminance White Pencil and stamped over it twice with my Altenew Pinstripe Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). The sentiment is from the Altenew Flower Arrangement Die Set (SSS | ALT). I like how this technique gives the look of a window…

  1. My favorite is the vertical flower with the “sideways” sentiment. Something a bit different. Thanks for sharing another useful technique.

  2. I love all the Altenew stamps. The “cut up” technique is pretty cool. I can’t wait to give it a try. Thank you for the giveaway.

  3. As usual, another prime example of creativity! Love it! Can’t wait to share this technique with various levels I stamp with as I think it could be a small step for a beginner OR as complex enough to challenge the more learned crafters. Thanks!

  4. This is my first time over to your blog. (Been meaning to get here…just get distracted by You Tube videos!) I’m looking forward to exploring the entire site. Love, love, love your videos. And, thank you so much for the time and care you take in making those videos to help us learn more techniques.

  5. Hi Jennifer – and fellow crafters.
    Being in Australia, it was financially prohibitive for me to buy the Life Changing brushes from the US. However, I found something similar (and far cheaper) in KMart here in Oz! AUD$12 buys you a set of 3 oval make-up blending brushes which work exactly the same as the Life Changing ones!
    I love watching your videos Jennifer! I really appreciate the way you explain things and take us through each step. God bless!

  6. Jennifer ~ thank you again for sharing your wonderful ideas with us! I have ordered the Altenew Exotic Tulips as I absolutely LOVE tulips and these Parrot style are gorgeous! I will think of you when I create with this stamp set!
    God’s Blessings! Rita

  7. I love that you pull in older stamps sometimes. Often at the time I first saw it I could not buy that stamp. But when I see it again, I am able to buy it. You are an inspiration for all the craft-aholics out there.
