Sketch Challenge May 2022|Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friends.

Welcome to the May edition of the Inkspirations Blog Hop.  This month we are creating projects from a sketch.  So as you hop along the links, you will see different ideas of how to craft from a starter sketch.  Some of us might turn it on its side, or create many layers with cardstock and designer series paper.  And it’s possible we all use different images from various sets!  

Here is the sketch idea we started with.

I kept my project simple for today.  It features the In The Moment stamp set.  I have labeled it a SIP <Stamps-Ink-Paper> project.  I did emboss the front of my card so it is slightly stepped up from a basic card, but other than that I simply stamped, colored, and put it all together.

In the Moment - SIP Card Project

I have a full photo tutorial for you below.  So if you  like to see the progression of the project take a peek at the photos.  Remember to leave me comments at the end, let me know when the last time you made a SIP card! I know I tend to embellish my cards.

Then, hop right along to the next stamper in our blog hop today.  Enjoy Karen Henderson's project, and please leave us comments.  We love to hear from you.

Happy Stampin,

Susan

Artistry Blooms - Two Step Stamping

Art Gallery | Two Step Stamping

Hello my stamping friends.

I have a fun two-step stamping project to share with you today.  To review two-step stamping is when you have a stamp set with two coordinating images.  One is usually a full image and the other a detailed image.  You stamp the full image in a lighter color, and then the detailed image in a darker color.

I have a full Show & Tell Demonstration for your crafting enjoyment and to take you through the full process from start to finish.  Check it out, and if you enjoyed watching please subscribe to my youtube channel so you will be notified when I share other projects in video format!

Okay, so have you ever tried the two-step stamping process?  Is it one of your favorites??? Leave me a comment, let me know if I inspired you.

If you need a list of supplies or the written instructions, they are here as well.  Just keep scrolling to find all the details.
