Welcome friends to our monthly Build-A-Flower Release Blog Hop. I am so honored to be a guest designer today. It's an honor and a blessing to be asked. You should have arrived from Caly's Blog.

Today, I am showcasing how you can create clean and simple cards by using just a few of the images, if you are new to layering stamps this is a great way to get your feet wet and to try simple layering as a newbie--- as you practice, you can move onto the full images. Altenew new does an amazing job with providing layering guides and often has videos as well. Don't forget to visit the store for the FREE layering classes that Altenew offers, (there are three).
So lets take a look at my cards that I created for today'e release...
Card One: Layer Stamping & Water-coloring
For my first card, I did some simple layer stamping and some water-coloring. I love the artsy feel you get when you combine both techniques together. As you can see I did not get a perfect impression when stamping with the layers, I purposely did that because I like white space on flowers and leaves.
Card Two: No Line Stamping & Water-Coloring
For my second card, I did no line stamping and water-coloring. This card is super simple but it certainly make a huge impression. Its clean, simple and masterful.
Card Three: Layer Stamping & Stamping w/Acrylic Block
For my last card, I created a fun focal point using a round acrylic block as my stamp. I applied ink directly to the block and stamped it onto my card panel. I added some fun layer stamped leaves and sentiment. I just love the clean look this gives and that its a 5-10 card to make, so if needed I can mass produce a few to always have some thank-you's on hand.
Well, I hope this inspires you to look at your layering stamp sets a bit differently. Sometimes less is more. Smiles.
