Creating Layered Stamps

I am here today to share with you some of my cards I made with my layered backgrounds. Tim Holtz does such an awesome job at this technique and has some great paper and stamp line called Components that follow this technique that have inspired me.


So I thought I would share with you some of the cards I have made and my process for this technique. I have created a video to walk you through the process as well, so feel free to check that out also.




If you do not have a lot of supplies, you can easily start out by using some card stock such as the Memoranda set from Tim Holtz. Alternatively, you could start out with a simple background such as I did in the card below and overlay the background with large number stamps and ephemera.


Adding color helps to create focal points on background stamps. You can easily emphasize some of the images on busy backgrounds by stamping overlays in black archival ink.  Ephemera, washi tape and word stickers are also a great way to add to the layered look. 


Thanks for stopping by!
