Collage Stamping

by Kim Hughes

Cluster a few stamps and create a colorful collage.

Supplies

  • Stamps (here, Inkadinkadoo Rock Star)
  • Ink (here, Ranger Peach Belini and Pitch Black; Stampin' Up! Dusty Durango and Baja Breeze)
  • Paper (here, Pink Paislee and Bo Bunny)

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Start with a minimum of three images that work well together. Choose from the same stamp set if possible, but you can use similar style of stamps for this technique as well.

    Stamp starting at the far right. Use a darker color of ink, but keep in mind that the sentiment should be the darkest color to help it stand out best.

  2. Step 2

    Place the sentiment down uninked to gauge where the left image should go. Stamp image on the left in a light ink color.

  3. Step 3

    Stamp the sentiment with black ink, layering it over the outer images.

  4. Step 4

    Stamp the lightest accent under the sentiment.

  5. Step 5

    What you have is a playful cluster of images that's just plain fun to look at.

    Change the colors to pinks and purples for a girly "diva" look.
