4 Seasons Card – Stamp Layering with Spectrum Noir Harmony Quick Dry Inks

Hello Spectrum Noir fans!  Since we are all social-distancing and mostly at home, I thought I’d share some very simple cards today with “stamp layering”, showcasing my favorite dye inks – the Spectrum Noir Harmony Quick Dry Dye Inks in Lemon Tonic, Honey Pot, Orange, Oasis, Pink Tulip, Fuchsia, Friar Brown, Seal Brown, Spring Meadow, Grasshopper
and the SN Translucent Ink (Watermark).


The stamp set I used is the Cherry Blossom Layering stamp set by Hero Arts.  Even though the stamp set I used is limited edition, I will be linking some layering stamp sets that you can use with the same technique that I am showing you today in the supplies list below.



I wanted to create 4 cards to represent each season.  Start by stamping the grass with Spring Meadow Dye ink.



Stamp the second grass layer with a darker ink.  In this case, I used the Grasshopper dye ink.  I did the same for the “fall” card but using Lemon Tonic, Honey Pot and Orange.


Here’s what the Summer and Fall cards look like:



For the “winter” card, I used the SN Watermark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder then heat-set with my heating tool.



I love the simplicity of these cards and they are very easy to mass-produce.  Here’s a closer look:




I hope you like these simple cards I showed you today.  Even though the stamp set I used is limited edition, I will be linking a couple of layering stamps in the supplies list below.  Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!
