Dandelion Wishes Drop Shadow Ornate Thanks Card. Crafty Collaborations Stamparatus Technique Tuesday Blog Hop April 2021

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

Today I'm taking part in the Crafty Collaborations Technique Tuesday Blog Hop and this month we are all focusing on the Stamparatus. Ive decided to show you the drop shadow Technique, which is super easy and looks fabulous.


Thick Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 4" x 8", scored at 4"

Coloured Card Stock Mat

1pc - 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"

Take your coloured card stock mats and line up in your stamparatus. Place the stamp onto the card stock image side down where you would like to stamp it, close the 'door' so that the stamp sticks to it. Add versamark ink and stamp the card stock. 

Take the card stock out of the stamparatus and use the heat tool to dry the ink. Pop the card stock back into the stamparatus exactly where you had it before, then move it a fraction of a smidgen to the right - a couple of mm or approx 1/16", ink up the stamp with the white craft ink and stamp. set the ink with your heat tool again - this gives you a drop shadow effect, quickly and easily with only a tiny bit of effort!

Repeat this process with the sentiment ( I chose a cling stamp and a photopolymer stamp, so had to do these steps separately, but if you used the same type of stamp you could do this all at the same time).

Add this panel to the card base you created by folding the basic white along the score line.
