Make It Monday #4: Adding Colour to Outline Images

Make It Monday #4: Adding Colour to Outline Images

I use to stay clear of outline image stamps.  Why?  Because they meant extra work, extra time to colour the images and I like to create quick and easy cards.  But I have since discovered a new way to use my outline image stamps, and today I’m going to share with you just one way to create quick and easy cards without colouring in your outline images.

I’ve used the Fallen Flowers Stamp Set and stamped in Versamark ink onto a variety of different colour cardstock.  Then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  The large flower I stamped twice and then cut out the center using a pair of paper snips and popped it up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

All images have been die cutted using the coordinating May Flower Framelits alternatively you can fussy cut, be sure to leave a slight border around each image

The greeting was stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock using Birthday Blooms Stamp Set and cut out using the Stitched Shapes  Framelit Dies
