Color Coordinates: Offset Stamping

Hi Everyone! Happy Saturday!! It’s Shari here with a Color Coordinates recipe and offset stamping technique for you.

Do you store your inks away and forget about some of your favorite colors? I’m guilty of picking up the same 12 or so inks when making my cards, but this time I decided to dig into my oranges and found a forgotten treasure…Apricot!

I wanted a retro look for this offset stamping technique so I chose soft tones of Cloudy Sky, Apricot, Duckling (my favorite yellow), Dusty Sage and Fog.

Using the Neat And Tangled stamp set Calathea, I stamped the solid images in my five colors onto a panel of Neenah White 80# card stock.

The inks work their way into the paper leaving a soft silky look. Once I filled the panel with the color images, I stamped again using the outline images with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. To get an offset look, I positioned the outline to the right leaving white space next to the leaves.

The Calathea stamp set offer inside and outside messages. I added a simple greeting using the Intense Black ink.
