Stamped Layered Card Part One by April Williams

for part two of this tutorial, please click here.

Normally you would do this technique using layers of cut card stock, but I decided to use Spellbinders Nesties dies for the layers on my card.

Supplies needed:

  1. Spellbinders Nesties dies -- I used Big Scalloped Squares
  2. small stamps or a background stamp -- I used Ivy Background 1831-329R
  3. Versa Mark ink 99702 or any colored ink
  4. embossing powder -- I used Pear Star embossing powder EP432
  5. removable tape
  6. heat gun

First cut out the white pieces that you will stamp on from the nesties dies. Then cut out the background pieces out of the nesties dies. Mine are purple. Take the white pieces and stack them on top of each other using removable tape.  This helps them to stay in place while you are stamping.

Using the Versa Mark ink, ink up your background stamp and stamp over the nesties stack starting on one side and then the other so as to cover the whole stack. You can use individual smaller stamps too and just randomly stamp  over the stack. If you do not want to use embossing powder, then just use colored ink to stamp.

Now pour the embossing powder over the whole surface where you stamped and heat powder with a heat gun.

Carefully peel off the layers and adhere the color background to each piece.

You can also cut smaller layers and stagger them as Marie has done with her card here below.

This makes a pretty and easy card. I hope you will try this. Have fun! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
