Silhouette Stamps

Hi!!! We have more gorgeous inspiration for you on this Bank Holiday weekend! Eileen Godwin has been creating some super stunning stuff with our stamps so we will be sharing lots more from Eileen over the next week! Today Eileen has a step by step guide to creating some awesome backgrounds which work perfectly with our silhouette stamps…


I have three sample cards to share with you today. All three feature the same technique, with different stamps.

flower - silhouette stamps - script stamp - card


Here are all the products and stamps I’ve used to create my First Sample.

I’ve linked all the Stamps for you:

Scripted Streets

inky script stamp - Paris street map stamp

Take a piece of smooth Blending Card stock, 21cms x 16cms

Fold to make a card blank

Use a corner punch to round off each corner.

Place the front of your card face down onto a score board and score lines vertically right across the card to resemble a fence

Take an ink pad (a light shade of  colour is best) and run it down your card but keep the action light don’t press too hard.

I did not ink the whole card with colour, as I wanted some white space.

I used a wet baby wipe to gently move the ink around and to blend away any lines I had.Dry with a Heat gun.

Next, I placed a Moon / Sun mask over my ‘fence’ and created some shadow.

On to the stamping.

I found my MISTI a most valuable tool for this project!



Two more samples for you now using exactly the same technique explained above.

The stamps are all linked for each sample for you.
