Splitcoast Tutorial: Stamp Shifting

It's my turn to share a tutorial over on Splitcoast today - my cards are all very different, but what they have in common is a stamp positioning technique. I'm calling it Stamp Shifting, but with the help of a stamp positioner, these effects can actually be created by shifting the card panel as you stamp! So fun and easy.

You can head over to the photo tutorial to see the other samples I created, but I wanted to talk a little more about this card here today! The background was created using this stamp from Whimsy Stamps, and shifting the panel 1/16" for each new impression. I used these inks from Clearsnap - these are water reactive dye inks with an extended dry time - they are wonderful for techniques and blending, and they've just released 12 new colors to the line! I love this combination of Mint, Inchworm, Tahiti, and Capri. 

Here's a closer look at the background - I love all those tiny dots! The paw prints were part of a set that coordinated with the Lattice background, a whole bunch of super tiny stamps that fit right in the intersections of the X shapes - but that set is sadly discontinued. Any tiny stamp will work though! 

Adopt Don't Shop DOGS Clear Stamps
This is the set I used for the focal panel - if you're a dog lover, and especially if you have a special place in your heart for rescue dogs or a rescue organization, this set is for you! A portion of each sale goes to Whimsy's local rescue too. (I've donated cards to a rescue org before - these sentiments are perfect for those too!) If you are a cat person - they have you covered too! Check out the cat set HERE - so many cute sentiments! Learn more about Whimsy Stamps' Adopt Cats and Dogs campaign HERE.

That's all I know today! Thank you for stopping by!
