Tuesday Tips or Techniques-Shadow Stamping!

I am going to show you how to stamp a shadow today for "Tuesday Tips or Techniques"! If you take a peek at the photo below, you will notice that my branch has a lighter colored "shadow":

You will need the following:
  • Dark Ink
  • Lighter Ink
  • Cardstock
  • Stamp Image
  • Stamp-A-Ma-Jig

Step 1:

Stamp your chosen stamp image in the lighter color first on your cardstock piece.

Step 2:

Using your Stamp-A-Ma-jig (SAMJ), stamp your image on your plastic sheet using the darker colored ink.

Step 3:

Position the SAMJ so that it sits slightly to one side of the image you stamped in Step 1.

Step 4:

Carefully remove SAMJ plastic sheet and stamp the image in place using the SAMJ handle. The photo above and below show you the results. Perfect placement!

  1. Great tip. It makes it really easy to add the perfect shadow.

  2. Backing up on some emails that I glanced at but didn't really have time to read...this is a wonderful idea...and I'm thrilled to see that we can use the clear stamps with the SAMJ! Thanks for your tips.....
