Hello everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I have a card and a tutorial to share with you using dye and pigment inks to achieve a different look for layering stamps.
Here is the card I designed. I used the Altenew - Beautiful Day Clear Stamp set. This is such a beautiful stamp set and it can be used in so many different ways depending on how you layer the images or if you just use the outline.
For the first stamped layer I used Rocky Shore from the Altenew - 4 Cube Inks Coffee Break.
Next, I used white pigment ink for the second layer of stamping. I just love how the white ink looks on the kraft paper.
Then, for the third layer of ink I used Mocha which is also from the Altenew - 4 Cube Inks Coffee Break. After stamping this layer I used a heat tool to dry the inks and also make sure all of the paper was dry before added embossing powder. I like to pour a little embossing powder on my paper to check and make sure it is good and dry before moving on to the next step.
For the forth and finally stamped layer I used VersaMark Ink and then I added Ranger - Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. I used a heat tool to melt and heat set the powders.
I stamped the leaves the same way I stamped the large flowers except I didn't use the Mocha ink since the leaves only have three layers of stamping. For the tiny vines and flowers I stamped all of those with VersaMark Ink and then I added Ranger - Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. I used a heat tool to melt and heat set the powders. Then for a little sparkle I added some Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the flower centers, vines, and tiny flowers. To seal in the sparkle and to add a little dimension I added some Ranger - Glossy Accents.
Here is a close up so you can see some of the sparkle.
Here is another close up.
The sentiment I used is also from the Altenew - Beautiful Day Clear Stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on to a piece of Vellum using VersaMark Ink. Then I added Ranger - Super Fine White Embossing Powder and used a heat tool to melt and heat set the powders. Make sure your heat tool is good and hot before you bring it to the paper. This will help melt the powder faster and also help to keep the vellum from warping. I wrapped the vellum around the back of the paper and taped it in place.
Here is a close up of the bottom portion of the card.
To add a bit more sparkle I added some Prima - Say It In Crystals A Victorian Christmas (Gold Sequins) and 5 mm Crystal Cup Sequins. To finish off the card I added the card front to a white A2 top folding card base and I added some foam squares in between the layers for added dimension.
I hope you enjoyed today's card share and tutorial! Experiment with your ink mixing the the dye base and pigment inks to see what kind of fun and unique looked you can come up with. Just be sure to clean your stamps good in between the inks.
