2-Step Stamping with Floral Wings

floralToday I wanted to share another card with Floral Wings, a 2-step stamp set.. This stamp set can be found in the back of the catalog because it’s reserved – and priced low – for hostesses only. Just one of the many benefits to hosting a Stampin’ Up! workshop.

Floral Wings

I adore 2-step stamp sets. They’re quick, stamp multi-colored images and … did I say quick? If you’re not familiar with 2-step stamping, here’s the deal:

1st step:
Stamp the base of the image first. Here the base is the butterfly as shown. Typically you stamp the base in a light color, but with this particular 2-step stamp set you can use a dark tone for the 1st step too. Here I’ve stamped the base with Crumb Cake.

The stamp with the flower buds is the 2nd step for the butterfly. Those buds fill in the open spaces on the wings to make the wings 2-color. Stamp that stamp directly on top of the other image. I’ve used Tip Top Taupe for this second step.

You’re done!

Stampin’ Up! made this 2-step stamp set super easy to use. First, Floral Wings is a photopolymer stamp set. It’s see-through so you have complete control as to where you place the stamp. Second, both stamps have arrows built into the stamp (my sticky notes point to them). These arrows tell you which way is “up” so that both images line up with one another. These arrows don’t stamp an image, they’re there simply as a helpful guide.

  1. Oh Amy ! Where were you when I was asking everybody about this particular stamp set ? I ended up with Best Thoughts because I could not find anybody to tell me how this stamp was used . I am so glad you put this out for people to see so they will see how those little flowers are placed and how easy it is to get a pretty image .
    Thanks !
