simple card tutorial - multi color stamping

mix ink color on your stamp before stamping for multicolor effect, and play with over stamping.
Here is a super simple first step at these 2 techniques.

simple line image of your choice. I used this cling stamp from Hero Arts

white cardstock to stamp on
3 or more colors of ink pads. I used Distress inks in red barn, lipstick stain, and spiced marmalade.

Sentiment stamp of your choice
black or dark color ink pad for sentiment
cardstock for layering
ribbon for embellishment
foam or sponge for blending colors
cardstock for card

Required Tools:
corner rounder
Nestabilities dies (or layering punches) I used this set from Nestabilities by spellbinders called 'Labels 1'

Die cut machine (like Cuttlebug or Big Shot)

Step 1
Create card shape, and round all 4 corners
Die cut layer color

Step 2
apply lightest color of ink to one portion of stamp
apply medium color of ink to another portion of same stamp- overlapping the first color a little
apply darkest color of ink to remaining portion of same stamp- overlapping the first and second color areas a little
'huff' or breath on to the ink side of the stamp
and stamp to white cardstock.

try it a few time to see what different effects you can achieve with more or less of one color or another.

Step 3
position stamped paper with die so the stamped image will be off center and die cut

Step 4
Ink with black ink your sentiment stamp and over stamp on to your die cut stamped piece. Position your sentiment so it partially (or totally) falls on to your image stamped design.

Step 5
Use one of your color ink pads from your multi color stamping, and foam or sponge to sponge and blend color around edges of your stamped and die cut piece.

Step 6
fold ribbon in half to create a loop and glue in place on your color layer die cut

add foam tape or pop dots to back of stamped die cut and position over ribbon and color layer

glue to card front
