Project of the Week

Hi - it's Joy with a Project of the Week.  I was so excited when I saw the new layered stamp set Wendy released called Flower Power Separates.  I discovered several ways to do layered stamping with the red rubber.  Here is one of them.

The only supplies you are going to need are a good pair of scissors to cut the red rubber and a permanent marker - I use the red Tim Holtz Tonic scissors.  They are sharp and can make precise small cuts.

I trimmed each flower separate very close - closer than normal

On each stamp, a petal or a distinct part of each piece was identified and marked on the back.  I marked the outline stamp and the fill in stamp in the same place with a permanent marker.
I did not use the cling foam on these.  They are going to remain unmounted because I will use a MISTI or  when I stamp, I will use a foam pad underneath my cardstock.

In the above picture you can see how I have marked each one.  This will make it easy to line up the outline layer with the solid layer.  These will be stuck on a clear acrylic stamping block with a small glue dot.

Here is a card I made using the identifying marks to help me line up the outline image with the solid image.
I'm hoping you will give this a try.  Let us know how it works out for you.
