2-Step Layered Ink: Simple Stamping Bonsai Card with Stampin’ Up!® Treasured Kindness Stamp Set


Sometimes a simple stamp set creates the perfect simple stamping card to let someone know that you’re thinking of them – Treasured Kindness is just that stamp set, ideal for a quiet note of support or love. This two step stamping set plus my simple stamping technique tip will let you stretch your ink colors by creating a layered look.


Do you know about Stamping Off Technique? With this simple technique you can double or even triple the number of ink colors available to you with the supplies you already own. ‘Stamping off’ lets you create 2 or 3 shades of stamped images from just a single ink pad.

Stamping Off Technique

  1. Begin by inking your stamp as usual.
  2. Next stamp on scrap paper to remove some of the ink from the stamp.
  3. Now stamp on your project to create a lighter tint of the stamped image.

With Stampin’ Up!’s 2-step stamp sets, this Stamping Off technique creates a perfectly coordinated final image on your projects.


Don’t forget to stamp inside your card – and on the outside of your envelope.
