Hey y’all, Kate Kennedy here to bring you a super fun technique that will make you look at your Sweet Stamp Shop stamps in a whole new way! In this video I will use  my stamps  to create a template. I then will cut out the stamped images creating a stencil. You can stop there and use this stencil on a card front by misting or inking the negative space or what I have done is a bit different. I layered the stencil on top of my card base. To add some color I stamped and used some pattern paper to fill in the  negative spaces of the cut out shapes, creating a super fun and dimensional appearance. Add a greeting and a couple of embellishments and the card is complete.


Unfortunately, the stamp set I used is no longer available, but, there are almost identical triangles in the Fall Gratitude set along with some other super fun images.


This technique is so versatile you will be able to use it with a number of stamp sets. Here are some suggestions:

City Scape how fun would a skyline stencil be?


Happy Hour the circles would make such a fun template!


For the greeting I used one of my favorite sets, Monogram It!


Here is the video tutorial with detailed demonstration start to finish. Hope you try this technique and share your projects with us on the Sweet Stamp Shop Facebook page.

    It looks like Facebook is required to be eligible for your giveaway. If that is true, it is unfortunate. Wish more companies were like Authentique who encourage FB comments, but will allow blog comments as entries if someone is a non-FBer….like me! 🙂

    Just in case FB is optional, I am commenting and am a new subscriber to your YouTube channel: JanisinIdaho. Yippee!!

      LOL…..I forgot to comment on the project! Love the look of this. I think triangles would be close to the limit of my cutting abilities! Ha. What a eye-catching card and such pretty colors!
