3 Ways to Add Texture to Bold Sentiment Stamps - MFT Techniques & Tutorials

July 14, 2018

It's time for a Techniques & Tutorials feature on the MFT blog.

Today I'm showing three ways to add some texture to bold sentiment stamps using the new Happy Birthday to You stamp set. I kept the designs of my sample cards simple since I wanted to focus on the stamping techniques.

Here is a video showing the techniques. Click HERE if you prefer seeing it on YouTube.

1. Ombre Stamping

My first card uses the Ombre Stamping technique. First I stamped the sentiment with Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, then added Tropical Teal ink only to the bottom portion of the letters.

2. Shadow Stamping

For my second card, I used the Shadow Stamping technique. I stamped the sentiment in Pineapple, then stamped it again in Poppy, slightly offsetting. I like that this technique adds some dimensional looks while I can keep my card flat and mailable.

3. Stamp Kissing

My third card uses the Stamp Kissing technique. It's a great way to add patterns to solid stamps. Honestly, it is a little difficult to stamp a pattern precisely with this technique. As you see in the photo below, my striped pattern is not perfect. But, this still is a fun technique to try to stretch your stamps.
