Hello!  I am late to the stamp layering game and recently got 3 new stamp layering sets.  I had one before, so I now have a total of 4.  This bird is one of my new purchases and I just love him!  It took quite a bit of practice to get everything right for this stamp set, maybe partly because I do not have a positioner yet (I do have one on pre-order, I guess I am kindof late to the stamp positioner game too!)

I loved doing this as I used tons of inks and so much stamping was involved.  I used soft sand, pool and navy dye inks on the bird, with black as the accent.

This card came together very fast once I got the hang of the layering.  

Supplies: Hero Arts Layering Bird stamp set, Versafine Onyx Black, Hero Arts Soft Sand, Pool, Navy, Green Hills, Field Greens inks, Gina K Innocent Pink, Dusty Pink and Chocolate Brown inks, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched rectangles die, blue cardstock from my stash

I would love to play along with the SimonSaysStamp Monday challenge which is Little Critters and Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy your weekend!


  1. You clearly don't need a stamp positioner, because this turned out beautifully! I love the different shades of blue on this pretty card, and that punny sentiment is just sweet too!

  2. Hi Heidi, a stunning card for your first time using layering stamps, I have only recently tried this technique out, beautiful result even without a stamping tool. Love the sentiment too. Have a wonderful week... Megan
