1 Stamp Set, 1 Design, 2 Cards

Hello Crafty friends, today would love to share with you my cards using 1 stamp set and 1 design, but 2 different cards. Today, I am using the Color Layering – Deer stamp, from the new Holiday 2016 Catalogue.

On this first card, I embossed the white cardstock with Wood Embossing Folder using my WRMK Evolution Advanced diecutting machine. And I added the embossed cardstock on the A2 card base.

I stamped the Deer on a white cardstock with Distress Mini Ink Pad set 3, and then fussy cut it. But you always can cut it out with the matching frame die set. Then I added the deer on the card 3D foam tape for some dimensional. I heat-embossed the sentiment on a black cardstock and then added it on the card with 3D foam tape. I added a piece of gold glitter ribbon for extra accent on this CAS card.


On the second card, it is simply watercolored, CAS and one layer card. For the card base, I used Canson Watercolor paper 140 lbs. And I stamped the deer with Distress Mini Ink Pad Set 3 and sprayed little bit of water on the inked stamp every time I stamped to create the faux – watercolor look on the deer.

And then I added some Broken China distress ink with wet brush to create the sky, and added some Vintage Photo distress ink with wet brush for the ground where the deer sit on. I used my craft heat gun to dry the panel completely before stamping.

I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black and I added some leaves around the deer that I stamped with the new Hero Arts – Ombre Autum Ink Pad.


On both cards, I only use 1 stamp set and 1 design. Also, with Color Layering stamp sets, you can create gorgeous depth of colors and dimension to the image even though it is a one-layer card. Also, for me, stamping with multiple stamps like this set, I like using my MISTI 🙂

  1. How inspiring to see what you’ve made with the same stamp. The deer is gorgeous and your CAS layouts are so different from each other but equally beautiful. Great job!

  2. Hard to choose one, Helen, they are both wonderful in their own way! Love that deer stamp. The windy leaves in your second card are perfect… also love that the deer looks like he’s in the top of a hill!

  3. Your watercoloured deer is so beautiful Helen. Great job with layering to add lots of depth of colour to give your deer a 3-D look. It’s wonderful that you show one stamp and one design can have completely different looks with just a few simple changes. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour.

  4. Both of these cards are wonderful, Helen! The deer look so real! Amazing job of stamping and watercolor! Thanks so much for sharing these with us at CAS Watercolour!
