I love building up my projects with layers of stamping, but sometimes it’s really nice to save time by using a collage stamp, like this Pressed Flowers stamp from Darkroom Door. What would’ve required three different stamps and quite a bit of masking is all done for you in one collage stamp.
I inked up my stamp with Distress Inks while keeping a paper circle (punched from a sticky note) over the postmark section of the stamp.
Then I took the negative part of the mask to shield the rest of the card, and applied green distress ink to the postmark.
I pressed embossing ink across the entire card and heat set it with clear embossing powder.
Sometimes it’s difficult to adhere card onto corrugated cardboard, but my Xyron® 5” Creative Station is quite effective.
I also embossed the metal Idea-ology flower parts, using Distress Paints with embossing powder.
