Yesterday I showed you two-step stamping where one image is stamped directly on top of another image. Today's version of two-step stamping, which I used to create the fourth card for class this month, uses a set where two separate stamps give you a whole image.
I used the stem (top left) and flower sprinkles (top right) to create a flower image.
I love how easy this design is to change! Because I am using two neutrals, Whisper White and Sahara Sand, you can easily switch the ribbon color and card base to change the feel of the card. I originally made the card in Baja Breeze, but quickly realized I had several cards that featured blue so we made the Perfect Plum version during class.

- On this card, placement is important! You don't want your stems too low, or your flower may be down by the ribbon and you don't want them too high or the ends may not be hidden by your embossed piece.
- Whenever I am trying to estimate placement for a stamp on a larger piece, I use the layers! I placed the Sahara Sand layer beside my Whisper White piece and laid the Perfect Plum scallop on top of the layer. This gave me a good visual on where I needed to stamp my flowers. I stamped the center stem first, then the stems on either side.
- The sprinkled flower images are super easy to align (especially with clear mount stamps) and allow plenty of margin for error without looking askew.
