Hello everyone! Ann here with another tutorial for you on how to use the most out of your Whiff of Joy stamps! If you're like me, you have more than a few un-inked stamps that you just haven't had time to use because there's too little time in the day. All Whiff of Joy stamps need a little love and I'm here today to show you how to use up all those yet-to-be-inked stamps!
The first trick is to merge images by masking. Here's my technique on merging images, especially if I want to merge them a specific way. In this case, I've used the two new Henry stamps from the latest summer release: Beach Henry with Cocktail and Lazy Summer Henry.
I wanted it to look like they were toasting their glasses and this is how you can go about doing that:
1. Stamp the image that is supposed to be in the foreground on normal paper, not on stamping paper. You don't want to waste your good paper for masking :) This is the image that will look like it's closer to you, therefore, it should look like it's "on top of" the other image. Cut out the image. You don't necessarily have to cut out the entire image if only part of the image is going to look like it's on top of the other image.
The second trick to using multiple images is to not use the entire image. Here's one tip on using multiple images separately in one card. I've used two images from the Life's a Beach July Store Kit and one image from the Fun in the Sun June Store Kit. Willow looks gorgeous in all of these!
I love using "partial" images and using them in "frames." I've also used this trick on my Happy Thoughts for Henry card here as well as in the card I'm about to show you!
1. I start off with using some Nestabilities to create die cut shapes that I will stamp my images on. They should be good sized frames that will fit a good portion of your images and also fit on a card.
Thank you for joining me today! I hope that you got some tips on how to use those un-inked Whiff of Joy stamps!
