Some layering stamps are easy to use and others take practice. I just got a new Rose Garden layering stamp and die set from Catherine Pooler Designs and this one will take some practice.
The results will be worth it! It’s a beautiful stamp set with some statement sentiments.
I won’t show you the pile of discarded attempts I made at layering these stamps!
These stamps each have 4 layers. I love layered stamps and the effort that it takes to get it just right. The depth of color and the image are always so pretty.
I kept the rest of the card simple because I spent so much time playing with the roses. I just love the blues…I used Catherine Pooler inks: It’s a Boy, Fiesta Blue, Something Borrowed and Juniper Mist. For the leaves I used Eucalyptus and did not use the layers on top.
I mixed some ink from my black ink pad with water using a round brush. I tapped that on my finger to create the splashes. I added a few iridescent bubbles from Studio Katia.
This is a clean and simple card. I don’t know that it would count as one layer because I die cut the roses and leaves out and they are popped up with foam tape.
All in all, I really love these simple cards with just a couple of the beautiful layered florals and a fabulous sentiment.
With a little practice, you do get the hang of a particular stamp set and the layering gets easier. It is definitely made easier with the MISTI!
Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!
