Easier Than It Looks

While blurfing this past weekend, I ran across a tutorial by a fellow SU Demo Dawn Olchefske (she is famous in the SU world) where she shows us how to make a triple-layered stamped image. And yes, it's way easier than it looks! Here is her post on how to do it, and here is my take on it:

Yeah, it's kindof busy. I really really really wanted to try Gumball Green and Midnight Muse together, and decided to use Baja Breeze as a background color. This is my second attempt. For this one I stamped off the Baja Breeze (ink up your stamp, stamp it on scrap paper, then stamp it on your card stock) to lighten it. BIG difference from the first try:

The background is just way too ... too, here. I also like that I moved the twine down in my top card.

So ANYway, I like this card design. I'll have to play with it some more with different color combinations. In fact, I might have just cooked up an idea for next week's SOS challenge. heh heh

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps - Betsy's Blossoms, Happy Greetings

Ink - Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Baja Breeze

  1. well, i learned something new - stamping off...
    It's hard to say which one is better, i guess it depends one one's preferences... I think i like the first one better, because it is brighter

  2. Nice job Leslie! Thanks for the shout out!

  3. I think they both look wonderful. I will have to give this a try.

  4. oooooooooooooooooooooh! ok, i b'lieve ya when you say it's easier than it looks... but it DOES NOT look easy. on the other hand it does look TOTALLY WORTH the effort of learnin' a new thing b/c ♥♥♥WOW♥♥♥ that is FAB*U*LOUS!!! (i like both versions, for the record; thought i concur that the refinements of off-stamping and lower twine do make me lean slightly toward the top one... it's just a bit more... sophisticated, mebbe???) (on the other hand, the lower card does not look like a FIRST TRY in any way at all!!!!!!!!!!) you soooo rock the stampy techniques!!! ♥

  5. SUPER fantastic!!! Love this technique and those colors and every thing else - FABULOUS!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
