How to Add Dimension to Stamped Images {Tutorial}

Remember these flowers from my earlier post on the Sophia Layouts Workshop?

Here's a quick tutorial on how I added a little dimension to make the flowers pop.  You'll need a stamp that you can cut apart and layer back together. I used Heartfelt Treasures. You'll also need your micro-tip scissors, or another tool that has a rounded tip, and either the Versamat or the foam sheet that comes with each of our stamp sets.

Stamp your image twice. For the first image, cut the entire image out.
For the second image, cut just a piece of the image out so that you can layer it.

Now, take your Micro-Tip Scissors, or another tool that has a rounded tip to it.
You'll want to leave your scissors in their case.
Using the back side of the Versamat (or the foam sheet that comes with our stamp sets), you'll just rub your scissors in a circular motion in the middle of the flower.
You'll start to see a slight indentation and the petals will curl upwards.

To finish your flower, add a small piece of 3D Foam Tape between the two layers and finish off with a button for the center.

I used the same technique on the leaves, just rubbing in a line along the open areas of the leaves.
I added 3D Foam Tape to the leaves to help them stand out on the page.
Then added 3D Foam Tape to the assembled flower.

Until next time...
