Clear Stamp Technique

Difficulty:
Difficulty 1/5 (1/5)

Supplies

  • Clear flower stamps (The ones shown are from Autumn Leaves "Build-A-Flower" by Katie Pertiet)
  • Card stock
  • Stamping markers (I used Marvy Le Plumme II)
  • Black stamping ink
  • Clear stamp block

Instructions

  1. I used stamps from Autumn Leaves for this project. I used just the leaf part and centers for this flower. I didn't use any of the petals. I know a small set of these can be purchased at Target as well. Both sets are shown below.

  2. Put one of the flower centers on a clear block and ink with black ink. Then stamp in the center of your card stock. I have a piece cut small enough to begin, but you can cut it down to size later if you choose.

  3. Next ink one of the outlined petals in black ink and stamp at 12, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 o'clock as if you are looking at a clock.

  4. Now ink in black one of the solid leaves and stamp at 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11 o'clock. This should fill all the spaces for the flower.

  5. After you clean the solid leaf stamp, take one of your marker colors and rub it all over the stamp. They will make a strange pattern. Ink will only adhere in some places on the stamp.

  6. Now stamp that in one of the outlined leaves. Then repeat for all of the outlined areas.

  7. Do this same thing with a different ink color for one of the solid centers.

  8. Stamp over the outlined center.

  9. Now you can add some glitter or leave it the way it is and add it to a card base. This can be done so many different ways. I would love to see what you create. Leave a post here to show me if you make one of these fun flowers!
