“S” is for…

Shadow Stamping

Shadow stamping is also know as 3D Stamping or Faux Embossing and you can find a great tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  It’s a fairly easy technique when using your Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  With the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, you can offset the top image slightly from the bottom.  Thus creating a shadowed or 3D effect.  It will certainly give your image depth.


I started with a Whisper White piece of card stock.  I masked the moon using a 1-3/8” circle punched Post-It® note.  I brayered on Bashful Blue and then removed the mask.  In Brocade Blue, I stamped the flowers from the Upsy Daisy set.  Using my stamp-a-ma-jig, I offset the flowers slightly and stamped them again, this time using Whisper White Craft Ink.  The sentiment is from the same set and stamped in Basic Black.  I layered the image panel on Whisper White and Basic Black and then adhered to a layer of WW on Bashful Blue.  A few pieces of my fav black gingham ribbon and black Vintage brads finish off the card.  An awesome technique for a beautiful card! 

So, quit lurking and give shadow stamping a try!  Thanks for stopping by today.
