card making :: one stamp set, different color palettes

IMG_6836b

Layer stamping with clear stamps is a great way to try out a variety of color palettes. Here are six examples using an array of Stampin’ Up! ink pads to produce different effects.  The stamp set used throughout this tutorial is the “Beautiful Day” set from Altenew, but the techniques can be used with any layering stamp set.

This is also a great way to make use of those ink pads that may have accumulated in your crafting stash!  For a step-by-step tutorial and to learn about the different color palettes, click here.

This was also my last article written as a contributor to the Card Making section of the About.com DIY website.  It’s been a fun adventure but I’m looking forward to having more time to spend with my family, and focusing on other projects I’ve been wanting to complete during the past year.  I hope you’ve enjoyed the tutorials provided over the past couple of years and will refer to the articles if you’re looking for a little bit of inspiration or direction.  Be crafty!  🙂
