MIM Challenge #74 Stamping on Texture

Heather Nichols gave the tutorial on Monday.
She showed us how to stamp on a textured or embossed surface.

Once I got started I couldn't stop!
There are actually 3 stamped, textured surfaces used in this card.

The butterfly is melon berry cardstock, inked with canyon clay and stamped with BB tintypes in smokey shadow.

Berry sorbet cardstock was embossed with a damask embossing folder by Crafts-Too, then inked with Pure Poppy and then stamped with background basics farm &barn woodgrain. Loved how this looked, just like drapery.

The 3rd treatment was die cut from stone cardstock which was embossed with a cuttlebug folder, inked with summer sunrise and stamped with BB newsprint. The square limitless layers die was intentionally turned on it's side like a diamond, which fit perfectly within the damask 'drapery'.
Sometimes you get lucky! Sentiment from Lovely Layers stamped on the banner die cut, and, hard to see, but lifted with foam. Button is from my stash... so is the die cut square framing the sentiment.


  1. wow - amazing layers & textures! I love the way the diamond fits in with the damask. This was a fun technique to play around with.

  2. Love the bright bold colors you chose, all the different patterns and the pretty butterfly.

  3. Very ambitious. All those textures really came out beautifully.
