Diamond Layers with Two Stamp Sets

Below is the sketch we are using as inspiration for our DOstamperStars Blog Hop. It is an AWESOME and easy sketch to follow! I've had a little sneak peek at some of the other cards on the hop and I think you'll come away as inspired as I was.

Cutting Instructions:
Card base: ½” sheet of cardstock
White or neutral layer: 4” x 5-1/4” (for stamping in the center area)
DSP Triangles: two 2”squares (cut diagonally to get 4 triangles)

I had selected two different stamps to play with for this sketch, but the whole thing went together so easily that I ended up with two cards! I really encourage you to pull out a stamp set, some coordinating inks and DSP and give this simple sketch a try!

For the pink card, I used Flirty Flamingo to stamp the images from Friends are Like Seashells. I then lightly added some gray marker to the edges to give it a drop shadow, which adds dimension and interest to the images.

Even those the art gallery stamp images are layered, I achieved the look of two-colors in the flower by stamping off. For the first layer, I inked up my stamp then stamped onto a piece of scrap paper, then without reinking, I stamped it on my layer. When I stamped the second layer, I inked it up and stamped directly to the layer. By removing a little ink from your shadow layer, it makes it appear lighter in color and works great for these two-stepped stamped images.
