Spotlighting with Kitchen Sink Stamps

For this week's Kitchen Sink Stamps 10 Minute Card Challenge, I thought it would be fun to play with spotlighting. I am loving how these cards turned out! I hope you will give this technique a try with your Kitchen Sink Stamps. If you load some into the KSS gallery, please include keyword 10MC23.

 Here is the shortcut method I use for spotlighting which allows you to create this type card so quickly.

 Step 1 - Using a tiny bit of repositionable tape, attach a 2.5 inch square of white cardstock to your white card front.


Step 2 - Place a piece of fun foam under your card for cushion, and stamp your image as you normally would.

Step 3 - Remove the 2.5 inch image.


Step 4 - Add the sentiment and attach to a black mat just slightly larger than the stamped image panel.


Step 5 - Reattach to the front of your card lining up the images carefully. I promised you it would be quick and easy!!

This can be done with any size or shape panel you would like to use for your spotlight. Just have fun!!
