Two-Step Stamping

Two Step Stamping Busy as a Bee Thank You

Thank You BeeSpring has sprung here in the mountains of southern Colorado.

Many of the bee-friendly plants in our garden have come up and are already in bloom.

This is great news for our bees!

In celebration, I created this quick and easy card using the bee image found in the stamp set Dragonfly Dreams.

The bee is a 2-step stamp image.

Two-step stamping allows you to combine individual stamps to build the final image you want in the colors you want.

First, I stamped the solid image of the bee repeatedly onto my Crumb Cake card front using Crushed Curry ink.

Then, I over stamped the solid image using Chocolate Chip ink.

The stamp set is photopolymer so lining up the images is very easy.

I did the same on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I punched out the image using my 1 3/4" circle punch and then matted it onto a 2" Crushed Curry circle.

Easy, Easy!

The greeting is from the all-occasion set Teeny Tiny Wishes, one of my all-time favorite greeting sets.

Thank You Bee Closeup

Here is a photo of the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set so you can see the 2-step images for the bee as well as for the dragonfly.

Use the thinlits and your Big Shot to cut out images for added dimension!
