How To Stamp On Your Stamps

I’ll attempt to explain this here. There are several ways to do this technique, but the basic idea is to ink one stamp, place it against a second stamp to pick up the pattern, then stamp on your project. Let’s look at some samples which should help make this more clear.

Here I inked the large Knit Together stamp with ink. I placed the circle stamp against it, then stamped on my project.

For this next sample, I inked the textured leaf stamp from the Botanical Layers stamp set, then stamped against the solid leaf stamp. I stamped onto the cardstock several times like this, and stamped several times by inking the solid stamp the regular way to show the contrast of stamping the normal way compared to using this technique.
