Here in Seattle, we have been having the most amazing weather. It has been in the 70's or close to it. It is like summer here in the NW. With the sunny weather, it truly is feeling like spring is here. With it comes flowers, chicks, bunnies, butterflies and new life.
Happy and springy cards are a great way of spreading the cheer of this wonderful season.
Today, Lisa made a great card using a cool technique called "selective stamping". It will really add a lot of mileage to your stamps you have and help you to look at stamps in a whole new way!
DeNami has lots of scene stamps. It often looks like the entire stamp needs to be used each time you use it, but with selective stamping, you can pick and choose what parts of the stamp you want to incorporate. The best part about this is that it's like getting many stamps for your one purchase! You can start browsing our stamps and see what kinds of images you can envision with this technique.

Today I’m sharing a card I made featuring the selective stamping technique and the Stitched Duo 1 Dies from Pretty Pink Posh (available for sale at DeNami Design). Let’s get to it!
Step 1: Die-cut the tag twice from white cardstock (once with the windows and once without). Tip: When die-cutting the one with the windows also die-cut one from Stamping Mask Paper (Inkadinkado) at the same time. You may need to run it through your die-cutting machine a few times to cut all the way through the cardstock and mask paper, but it will work.
Step 2: Adhere the mask (with the windows cut out) to the solid tag.
Step 3: Adhere three window masks.
Step 4: Take the K89 Hatching Chickies Border image and mask off all but one chickie with a post-it note.
Step 5: Apply ink to chickie.
Step 6: Peel away sticky note.
Step 7: Stamp chickie within upper left-hand window of tag.
Step 8: Clean your stamp. Repeat steps 4 through 7 (cleaning stamp in between) to add the remaining two chickies on the border stamp to the remaining two windows on your tag.
Step 9: Peel away the masks in the other three windows. Stamp the new CL-B120 Little Easter Eggs image in two of the windows and “Hello” from PF26 Assorted Greetings in the final window. Color all of the images with markers.
Step 10: Peel away the tag mask. Adhere cardstock window tag (the one you cut in Step 1) to the top of the solid tag stamped with images. Embellish the tag with a bow and some glitter. Cover the front of an A1-sized card with patterned paper. Adhere finished tag to the card front with foam squares.
I had so much fun making this card, and I’m really happy with the results! And I love the fact that you can use this same technique and layout to create cards for lots of different occasions. Just change up the DeNami Design images and you can create cards for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, etc. I know I’ll be revisiting this technique and layout many times in the near future, and I hope you will too!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!
