Do you ever have one small stamp that you want to use for a card, but you’re not sure how to fill up the rest of the card? Or you have several small stamps and want to use them together, but you’re not sure how to make them look nice as a group? Today I’m sharing four card layout ideas that are perfect for both of these situations. I made these cards with the Stampin Up Adorable Owls stamp set, which you can get for free right now during Sale-a-bration with any $50 order!

4 Card Layouts For Small Stamps
For each card below, in addition to the card layout I’m also sharing a fun way to color outline stamps.
1. Use Punches & A Background Strip
This is my classic way to use several small stamps in a quick and easy way. Punch them out, and lay over a designer paper strip.
Coloring technique: Keep it simple with watercolor pencils.
2. Stamp On Rectangles And Add A Cute Background
Coloring technique: Use Blends alcohol markers for beautiful, bold results!
3. Punch Out The Top Layer And Stamp Behind
This can be a really fun way to have your stamped images peeking out from behind, especially if you pop up the top layer. Watch the video for tips to line up your stamps and punch outs.
Coloring technique: Use a texture stamp to add color!
4. Peek Through A Wall
This works really well especially with animal stamps. And it’s super easy!
Coloring technique: Stamp onto designer paper.
