Impressive Stamping Technique with Die Cut !

What I love about cardmaking is that it lets me incorporate different techniques to create a cohesive layout!
 
For today's tip, let me show you how to make an impressive card using two distinct yet complimenting techniques: stamping and die cutting!

Watch the Video Tutorial:

Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:

Step 1

The materials that you'll need are: cardstock, paper, die cut circle, set of stamps (to create a landscape design), archival ink, and glue dots.

Let's get creative!

Step 2

Get your card with the die cut circle. And prepare your stamps for a landscape effect!

Mine is a ready-made material, however if you do not have one you can just use your individual stamps and layer up to build your own landscape design!

For this card, I used 2 different lavender field stamps and utilized different strengths with my black archival ink.

Step 3

For the first stamp, test it first on a piece of paper so you can manage the density of its blackness.
 
Once you are happy with the look and thickness of your ink, imprint it on your card as seen below.

Step 4

Now you can move on to your next stamp. For the second one, make it really juicy to create a pretty layered effect!

We're slowly building it up! Don't worry about doing this with your normal stamps as we are using black ink.

Step 5

Next, add other elements on your card.
 
As you can see, I added a house and a few clouds.
 
You can play around with your ink and create gradients of black employing an awesome effect on your design!

Step 6

Finish your card off with your desired title. As for me, I chose the phrase: 'brighter days are ahead" as it would be the best line to depict my layout!
 
I stamped it on a piece of white paper and trimmed it down. After that, I inked up the sides to create a dimensional look to my title.

Step 7

Get your glue dots and carefully place them on the part where you want your title to sit. The glue dots will give it a 3D look instead of being flat on the surface of the card.
