Shadow Stamping

Simple yet effective!

Shadow stamping gives your images that  3-D appearance.

For the card shown below I used the Blooming with Kindness stamp set, Stazon Black Ink, Illumniate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad and the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  

I cut the card from Basic Black cardstock 8.5" x 5.5" and folded it in half.
Then I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 4" x 5.25"

After inking the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder with Basic Black ink I ran it through my Big Shot.

Taking another piece of Whisper White card stock, the Black Stazon Ink and the flower stamp
from the Blooming with Kindness set I stamped a black flower.
Stamp another black flower with the Basic Black ink pad (DO NOT USE STAZON FOR THIS STEP as it will permanently mark the Imaging Sheet that comes with your Stamp-a-ma-jig).  

Clean the black ink off your stamp and tap it into the Illumniate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad.

Position the Imaging Sheet with the black flower directly over your stamped image for your card.
Shift the Imaging sheet slight up and to the right.  Then place the Stamp-a-ma-jig tool over the top left corner of your Imaging Sheet.  Remove the Imaging Sheet and place your stamp into the corner of the Stamp- a-ma-jig tool and press down.  By using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to slightly shift the spot you will stamp you've created a shadow effect with the Glimmer Watermark Ink!

Punch the flower out by running it along with a proportionate non-scalloped cirle from the Circles Collection  Framelits.  Then run a piece of Basic Black through the Big Shot along with the coordinating sized scalloped circle.

Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock 3.75" x 1.5"
Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3.75" x 1.25"...stamp this piece with any sentiment you choose!
