Coloured stamping on coloured cardstock

The cards today show you how to colour stamping on coloured cardstock, show you how to do this on light and dark coloured cardstock. For these cards, I’ve use the lovely Altenew Watercolour Doodles stamp set along with a great sentiment die. To add more interest, I have added shine to the cards with both embossing powders and metallic cardstock. So let’s get started.

Coloured stamping on coloured cardstock

Coloured stamping on coloured cardstock - on dark cardstock

For this first card, we want to stamp on dark coloured cardstock. The trick for stamping in colours on dark cardstock is to use pigment inks or pigment hybrid inks like the distress oxides.

For this card, place a piece of Gina K Plum Punch cardstock and position the outline layers of the stamps onto your card, off to one side. Next stamp these in clear embossing ink and cover with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder before heat setting this.

Adding the colour

Now position the first layer of the stamps over the outline images on the card and stamp these in light distress oxides colours. Don’t worry about stamping over the embossing powder as this will resit the ink. The colours used here are Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, Shabby Shutters and Bundled Sage Distress Oxides

Once the background is stamped, using some metallic paints, add a selection of varying sized paint splatters onto the background and let this to one side to dry.

For the sentiment, die-cut the Altenew Fancy For You die out of Gold metallic cardstock as well as 3 out of Gina K Lovely Lavendar cardstock. Layer these up, offsetting the gold to create a shadow.

To assemble the card, adhere the sentiment to the front of the card, add a small ‘Just’ heat embossed sentiment over the top. Foam mount the whole card panel onto a card base of Lovely Lavendar and finish the card off with some gold sequins. 

Coloured stamping on coloured cardstock - on light cardstock

For the second card, we are instead using light coloured cardstock. Instead of using pigment ink, we can use dye inks on the lighter card. 

Again for this card, stamp the outline layer of the floral stamps onto the card, creating a floral swag across the card. Next, once stamped in embossing ink, heat set with rose gold embossing powder. 

Creating interest:

You can now stamp the first layer of the stamps over the top of the embossing powder as this will resist the dye in. The colours used here are Queen for a Day, Sangria, Eucalyptus and Spruce Catherine Pooler Designs Inks. 

To add more interest, splatter white metallic paint over the background and set to dry. Again this card uses the Altenew Fancy for you di, die-cut out of a rose gold cardstock and 3 layers from Plum Punch cardstock.  When complete, the card panel was mounted onto a Plum Punch Cardstock and finished off with a few sequins scattered around.
