Welcome to The Creative Inking Blog Hop!! Whether you are joining in from the Awesome Lori's Blog or this is your first stop, I am so thrilled to have you stop by The Creativity Cave! Our theme this month is Two Step Stamping and I have to admit this is one of my favorite parts of stamping! Two-Step Stampin allows you to stamp an image in layers to add shading, dimension and depth or to stamp flowers separately from leaves, for example. It is a wonderful part of stamping and I have always LOVED the look! I have two fabulous projects to share with you–and a video that includes tons of tips and tricks (and suggestions for when you mess up–like I did! 🙂
My post includes these two cards–both are totally different–but use Two Step-Stamping!
First let's look at the Tranquil Tulip Card–It is so soft and simple and EASY to stamp!! I combined it with the Sorry For Everything sentiment set for a really great project that could be used for several occasions.
Gather Your Supplies:
- 1/2 Sheet Crumb Cake (5 1/2 x 8 1/2")
- 3 7/8 x 5 1/8" Basic Black

The second card uses the Colorful Seasons's Stamp Set–and it is a FANTASTICLY Versatile stamp set! It has all the season's covered and some fantastic sentiments that go with it (and I LOVE that font!!)
