Three Fun & Easy Handmade Card Techniques To Try with Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Hello my crafting friends,

Today I would like to share with you three fun techniques you can try with the Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set. I created these cards for Stampin’ Up! to share on their Facebook & Instagram Accounts. Each card shows a different technique.

The first is to create a watercolor background, then stamp the image on top. This gives the silhouette a softer look and can add some fun colors to the open area.

The second tip is to stamp the image and then draw an outline around the open area. This gives a more whimsical look to the image. I love how the drawn line doesn’t need to be perfect and gives the image a whole different look.

The third is to use a emboss resist technique to color inside the open space with Stampin’ Write Markers. Make sure to check out the step by step instructions or video below.

Card #1 – Watercolor

1- Start by adding ink to a clear block. You can do this with an ink pad or Stampin’ Write Marker. Spritz it will a little water with a Stampin’ Spritzer and press down on to your cardstock. Repeat with another color until your desired effect is achieved, let dry. I used Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather, and Polished Pink Stampin’ Write Markers.

2- Stamp your image on top once it has dried. I used Misty Moonlight. Cut out with a 2” circle from the Layering Circles Dies.

3- Emboss your 4” x 5 ¼” Basic White piece with the Stitched Greenery Die. Add the two Misty Moonlight stitched rectangles across to create a long rectangle. They can overlap in the center or you can cut them down.

4- Wrap with 20” of Twine and tie a bow on the right side. Add this to the cardbase.

5- Add the main image in the center with dimensionals.

6- Stamp your greeting on a ½” strip and trim the edges to create a banner. Add to the card with dimensionals at the bottom of the main image.

7- Add three embellishments.

Card #2 – Adding a Line Drawing over the image.

1- Stamp the image on to a light color cardstock cut with a stitched rectangle die. I used Garden Green ink on Soft Sea Foam Cardstock.

2- Then traced the image with a darker Stampin’ Write Maker, I used Misty Moonlight. You don’t need to perfectly trace the image.

3- Emboss your 4” x 5 ¼” Basic White piece with the Stitched Greenery Die. Add it to the cardbase.

4- Wrap 20” of twine around the bottom of the stamped image and tie a bow on the right side. Add to the center of the cardbase with dimensionals.

5- Stamp your greeting on ½” strip and cut the words up. Add above the bow with dimensionals.

6- Add three embellishments.

Card #3 – Emboss Resist

1- Stamp the image with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder on Basic White Cardstock.

2- Then added color to the open area inside the stamp with Stampin’ Write Markers. I began with the lightest color Misty Moonlight at the top and worked down to the darkest, Just Jade, Garden Green, then Evening Evergreen. Take a soft, lightly damp cloth and wipe off the ink from the white embossed area. Then fussy cut out.

3- Emboss your 4” x 5 ¼” Basic White piece with the Stitched Greenery Die. Add it to the cardbase.

4- On the Just Jade Stitched Rectangles, stamp the image a couple times to create a subtle texture. Add to the center of the cardbase.

5- Add the embossed image to the center with dimensionals.

6- Stamp your greeting on Basic White cardstock and cut out a banner shape on the right side. Add over the trunk with dimensionals.

7- With 10” of twine create a bow and adhere it with glue dots in the top left corner of the greeting. Add three embellishments.
