Stamping Layers

Thanks for stopping by to spend time with me today!

This is a card using those awesome 'layering' stamps that are all the rage right now...truth is they have been around for a long, long time but they are making a fierce comeback!

One technique for using them is to plan to use the same 'color' but in varying shades.  In this thank you card I used 3 different shades for each flower, first the 'blackout' layer in the lightest shade, the 'outline' layer in the darkest shade and the center in a medium shade.  These types of layering stamps look wonderful in different color groups as well as in different shades of the same color.

I used my CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge to cut the sentiment label from Amethyst cardstock and a miscellaneous orange patterned paper.  See the supplies list below for the cut information.

I used Thistle Ink for 'WITH' & CS Orchid Ink for 'Thanks'
