Best Stamp Layering Methods With Stamping Tool
Hello! Today I am sharing a method of using a stamping tool to get the most accurate results with layered stamps. I have shown many methods in the past – these are the best!

One of the questions I get asked the most is how to best use layering stamps. I know many people struggle with getting the layers aligned perfectly, etc. I have shared many methods in the past (see the Related Videos linked below)… but I feel today’s methods are the most accurate! The key? Use the packaging to line up your stamping! Be sure to watch the video to see how this is done.
My first cards features the Kitchen Sink Pears Stamp Set. I am so impressed at how realistic this looks when stamped! I teamed the layered pear with a sentiment from the Sunny Studio Fruit Cocktail Stamp Set on a Pink and Main Thin Fish Tail Banner die cut.
I kept the notecards very simple… using Gina K Whisper Cardstock and the oh-so-awesome Altenew Dotted Swirls Debossing Die. And check out that stamping… love it!
I made several of these next examples… I just couldn’t get enough of the yummy raspberries. I used the Kitchen Sink Berries Stamp Set along with sentiments from the Hero Arts Thank You Messages Stamp Set and Altenew Simple Fruit Stamp Set. I really like the shape of the My Favorite Things Elegant Rectangle Dies – it is perfect for creating a focal point for your stamping!
I also added white-on-white layered die cuts to peek out from the focal die cuts… using the Altenew Wild Rose 3D Dies and Altenew Rose Flurries 3D Dies.
My next cards are similar and also use the Kitchen Sink Berries Stamp Set, My Favorite Things Elegant Rectangle Dies, and Altenew Simple Fruit Stamp Set. However this time, I used the second generation of the inked stamps to create an extra set of cards. The card on the left is first generation, the card on the right is second…
I added a white die cut made with the Altenew Leaf Clusters Dies for a bit of interest in the background.
For the background of the lighter, second generation piece, I used the Altenew Dotted Swirls Debossing Die.
I am blown away by the stamping on this next piece! The Kitchen Sink Trees Stamp Set and Kitchen Sink Rolling Hills Stamp Set are wonderful for creating a realistic scene. Wow.
This card also features the Pink and Main Large Fish Tail Banner Dies, Simon Says Stamp Leafy Frames Stamp Set, and Altenew Dotted Swirls Debossing Die.
Here is another created with the same products. So realistic!
I wanted to keep this next card simple, using only the Kitchen Sink Birch Trees Stamp Set and Simon Says Stamp Leafy Frames Stamp Set.
And finally, I just had to use the Kitchen Sink Stamps Palm Trees Stamp Set on two cards. I also used the Kitchen Sink Rolling Hills Stamp Set for the sand and a sentiment from the Altenew Leaf Clusters Stamp Set.
And one last one… for a dear friend…
I will be back later this week sharing the best way to layer stamps without a stamping tool!
