Stamping In Shapes feat. Altenew Springtime Azalea + Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

Hey folks! In today's video, I'm going to show you how to stamp your images in a shape. I'll be using the simple stamp set to create a simple circle of flowers and color them in with Copic's. Today's card is super easy for a beginner, but be sure to check out the video, because I share a card I did awhile back where I stamped a bunch of flowers in the shape of a heart!

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

One of my favorite things to do is to stamp my images in a shape. It's the next best thing to stamping out an entire scene, I think. I don't do it very often, but it can be outrageous fun. It can be very simple like the cards I'm sharing with you today or it can be very involved like the card I have below.

Either way it's a great way to showcase you stamped images!

The card pictured above is a card I did in June. I used the Wplus9 Modern Floral Series and stamped them all in the shape of a heart. I'm not gonna lie folks, it was quite technical and a lil time consuming. You definitely need to do some planning and this is one of those layouts you should work out on copy paper before you start! You can read more about this card HERE.

For my today's cards I'm using the Altenew SPRINGTIME AZALEA Stamp Set. They are fairly simple shapes which is perfect for this. I'm also a sucker for Altenew and while I don't use their stamp layering sets as they are meant to be used, I do love to some of the layers together and color with Copic's

I stamped all of my images on a 6"x6" panel of Neenah SOLAR WHITE 80# Cardstock. I wanted quite a bit of real estate to work with, because I already had it in mind that I would have a rainbow color palette. This way I could fit all 8 colors on the panel. If you went with something smaller you would simply need to adjust the size of your shape (in this case a circle) and the amount of images you stamp.

I traced my circle with a Hero Arts INFINITY CIRCLE Die lightly with a pencil on my panel. After I stamped all of my images with Altenew PERMANENT BLACK Ink I only erased the outer circle. Be sure to watch the VIDEO to see exactly how I did this.

I talk a lil bit in the video about my color choices for the green flower and the leaves. Although the greens I chose for the flower were from a YG family and the leaves were from a G family, they work well together because both family's have the same undertones. Once they are colored in, they will look different, but they will compliment each other. I have all of the Copic colors listed below.

To make sure I get the most of my stamp sets, I like to use the smaller images in them as accents or embellishments. For these cards, I used the stamp that's actually meant for the stamen on the flowers and stamped around my card panel.

Here's a big shocker folks! TO finish off both cards, I used a Uniball Signo WHITE GEL Pen and a Sakura WHITE SOUFFLE Pen on the center of the flowers and a whole lotta Spectrum Noir CLEAR OVERLAY Pen on the highlights of the flowers.

I also show you in the VIDEO how I stamped the sentiments.

Thats it! Easy peasy!

Before I go, starting next Friday, I will have a link to a sister site to my blog. Here I'm going to have all of the stuff that I need to clear out of my craft room for sale. Stamps, dies, inks and other stuff will be available. Stay tuned for that!
