3 steps to your inner artist

3-step stamping is one of the ways to really give a “wow” to your project with very little work.

Stampin’ Up!’s new stamp set “Lotus Blossom” is a fabulous example of this.  There are 3 stamps to create the layered effect of the flower, each with a different amount of detail.  When layered with different shades of the same colour, the effect is simply stunning.

Here are a few ideas to help your inner artist out. These two samples use a lot of sponging with our classic ink, but the amazing part is it only requires two to three colours to get that rich background.

This one is more of a “straight stamped” sample, and really exemplifies the simplicity of the 3 layers on the blossom:

  1. Wow… Love how you used that stamp set to create three distinctive looks. That second card, in particular, is really drawing me in. It’s those beautiful colours and artistic background! It’s making me wish I could stamp right now! (Gotta get back to Montréal first, though!)


  2. Why can I not find this lotus blossom stamp anywhere in the StampinUp web site store. What catalog is it in? I love your cards and you have inspired me to get the stamp and try them out for myself.


    • Hi Judi – The reason you can’t find it is it’s a Sale-a-bration reward which means it can be earned for free with a $60 order, but not purchased. You can find the reward brochure here:
