Stamping with the Back of your Clear Stamps | Sunny Studio Turtley Awesome

Happy Saturday! I'm so happy to share with you that I'm guesting for Sunny Studio Stamps with their Spring release. Included in that release is the Turtley Awesome stamp and die set and if you don't know, I kind of have a thing for turtles! Today, I'm going to share a quick step by step tutorial with you on how to create a repeat background like I did and how to add color using the back of your clear stamps.

For this technique, I used a MISTI stamp positioning tool, but you could also use a large stamp block and grid paper to achieve the same look. My cardstock is 4.25 x 5.5 inches. I later trimmed it to 3.75 x 5 inches to adhere to my card front.

Begin by creating a small cluster with the stamps. Position them so they will stamp on the bottom right hand side of your paper. Close the lid to pick up the stamps, ink your stamps, close the lid and stamp the image.

Using the ruler on the side of the tool, slide your paper down 1.5 inches and stamp your image again.

Repeat this process until you have reached the top edge of your paper. And yes, it's totoally OK if your paper hangs over the edge of the tool when you stamp!

Now let's stamp the left side of the paper. Create another cluster with your stamps.

To add some color, I decided to stamp the turtles with the back side of the stamp. As you know, the back side of all stamps is solid and usually a little larger than the detailed stamp image. This particular set, works really well for this technique because there are 2 turtles facing each other that are the same size. Other shapes that work well for this are designs that are more symmetrical, such as flowers.

Simply line up the back side of the stamp with the detailed stamp image. Close the MISTI to pick up the stamp, apply some ink and stamp. You'll have to play around with how much to slide the paper down to stamp each image, but if you start at the bottom like you did for the pattern above, you can use the same slide down method.
