5 Cards 1 Stamp – Easy Stamping Techniques!

Hi there! A lot of people want to know how to get more use out of your stamps and supplies… and I’m with you! In today’s video, I am sharing how to use 1 stamp from the Caroling Squad stamp set to create 5 cards… and this stamp set still has tons of other images for even more versatility.

(Looking for anything that I used in the video? All of the supplies are linked with images to multiple stores at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used when possible. Watch the full video HERE in HD!)

For the first card, I stamped and heat embossed the trees on an angle going off the edge of the card. This can be a great way to change it up and get a new look… don’t be afraid to play with positioning! Then, I used Simon Hurley create. inks to blend colors on top of the trees.

On the second example, I heat embossed the tree in the center of the card. Then, I used my inks to watercolor the tree and background. I mix greens with blue colors to change it up and create new tones for the tree!

On the third card, I stamped and heat embossed the trees around the card hanging off the edge. This time I created a night sky blended background using blues, purples, and yellows with my inks. I love the unique design this created and made a star in the center of the card!

For the next card, I heat embossed the tree onto a piece of kraft cardstock. Then, I added color using my inks with water on acetate to create some fun controlled watercoloring!

On the fifth card, I stamped the tree several times and watercolored it in using Simon Hurley create. inks. Then, I cut out the layers of the tree individually and added them onto the card with varying layers of foam tape. This creates a beautiful dimensional look to the card! I finished off the card with a simple yet beautiful tone on tone background using the Frostbite stencil.
