Learn how to add color and depth to stamped images with an easy two-step stamping technique. Sara Naumann shows you how.
Two-step stamping is a simple process and gives lots of creative possibilities!

You'll need two variations on a single image: A silhouette (or shadow) stamp, plus an outline. Many stamp sets are sold with this option, making it a snap to create a beautiful image for a card, gift tag or other papercraft.

Want a variation? Simply change the color of your ink, or try heat-embossing the outline on top of the stamped silhouette.
