Spotlight Stamping

Prepare card by cutting black cardstock 83/4 x 5.75”. Fold in half. Crease fold with a bone folder. Set aside.

Stamp Magenta image 21.057.R page 84, twice on white glossy cardstock using black Memories ink. Let dry completely before proceeding.

Trim one image to 51/4” x 41/2” and mount to front of the black card. Set aside.

Cut out a “Spotlight” shape from the second image. The shape can be a rectangle, circle, square or a shape that echoes part of the stamped image. I cut a 2 x 13/4” rectangle on mine. Using markers, color in the shape you just cut out.

There are two ways to add this to the main image. The first one is to glue this to the top of the full image aligning to the corresponding part of the image. Outline a border with the fat end of a Zig Writer black marker around the spotlight. The second way is to mount your spotlight piece on to black cardstock. Trim close then align to the corresponding part of the image.

I colored some leaves and berries from my scrap piece and added them.

Here are a couple of samples using the same stamp and spotlighting different parts.

First taught this class March 2, 2002.
