Lotus Blossom: Three Step Stamping Made Simple

 Lotus Blossom - Three Step Stamping Made Simple, with Stampin' Up! color combination ideas by LovenStampsMost popular stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration mini catalog? I definitely think it’s Lotus Blossom stamp set (139143). I know it’s been the favorite in my orders so far so far this month!  

Why is it so popular? Easy. Because it’s gorgeous. The image is actually created with three separate stamps. Their photopolymer, so lining them up is easy.  I find that stamping from the darkest to the lightest produces the best results, and I like to look at three specific points on the flower image for lining up my stamps.

Wondering what color to make your flower?  I have some suggestions for you! With 2-Step or 3-Step stamping, you can select 2-3 different colors, or use the “Stamping Off” technique to use the same color twice (or even three times). 

3-Step Stamping Color Combinations

  • Island Indigo – Bermuda Bay – Coastal Cabana
  • Tangerine Tango – Calypso Coral – Crisp Cantaloupe
  • Melon Mambo – Melon Mambo – Pink Pirouette
  • Night of Navy – Marina Mist – Soft Sky
  • Eggplant Envy – Eggplant Envy – Perfect Plum
  • Real Red – Pumpkin Pie – Daffodil Delight
  • Blackberry Bliss – Rich Razzleberry – Rich Razzleberry

There’s another fun Sale-A-Bration product on this card: it’s the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper comes white with a clear embossed design that resists ink. There are so many fun ways to color it, but no matter what you choose the resist pattern will show through the color. Here are a few things to try.

Ideas for Using the Irresistibly Yours Emboss Resist Paper

  • Sponge on your ink with a stampin’ sponge
  • Color directly on the paper with Stampin’ Write Marker
  • Apply your ink pad directly to the paper with a wiping motion
  • Use a brayer for even color distribution

Like I said, lots of different ways and techniques for using this fun paper that you can get for free with a $50 order during  Sale-A-Bration!

  1. In your “Ideas for Using the Irresistibly Yours Emboss Resist Paper” list you have possibly two errors and I’m not sure what you meant. Check the words in the first two suggestions. I think one is Stampin’ Write Marker’s. You must have done this very late at night as you are usually very well written.

    Thanks
