Fun with Henley Layered Floral Stamps | Victoria CalvinApr 14, 2018
Hello friends! It's Victoria and I am back with a layered stamp tutorial using the Henley Stamp Set.
The Henley Stamp set is perfect for making stunning layered flowers. This technique works well for any craft project and is a great way to get a lot of mileage out of your supplies. For this layout, I used the floral and leaf stamps to create layered floral die cuts.
First, select a stamping ink of your choice - pick a light color and a coordinating color in a dark shade. For this project, I used four stamping inks, two for the flowers and two for the leaves.
Next, position the solid flower stamp on an acrylic block, inking the stamp with your lighter color first.
On top of the solid floral stamp, layer the detailed floral stamp using a darker coordinating ink color.
Repeat this process for the leaves as well.
Once your flowers and leaves are stamped, simply cut them out! If you have an electronic cutting machine, there is a cut file in the FJ shop specifically designed to fit the size of the flowers and leaves when you stamp them right next to each other. I don't mind a little fussy-cutting, so I just went with that!
Here is the layout I made using my layered floral die cuts. To begin, I layered two patterned papers from the Alexis kit to create a background. Next, I positioned two 3x4 photos, adding a black and white frame from the Henley kit to the right photo. Next, I placed a story tag from the Heidi kit behind the left photo and a label was added to the side of the right photo to serve as an anchor for smaller embellishments.
Under the photos, I layered my stamped floral die cuts, adding foam squares for a bit of dimension. I love the way this looks! To the top of the floral cluster, I added the "you and me" die cut from the Reagan kit to serve as my title. To finish the layout, I sprinkled a few epoxy hearts from the Kate kit and some epoxy dots from the Henley kit around the layered floral cluster.
You can watch my process in the video below.
Hope you're inspired to get stamping!
