Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting ChatnCraft with Lorraine from the United States. Our theme this month is “What is your favorite Stampin’ Up! tool?” My current favorite is my Whisper White Craft ink and the Whisper White refill. I am loving the Shadow Stamping techniques that uses this ink. The cards above were done with the Blessings of the Home stamp set (available January 4 in the new January-June Mini Catalog) using the Shadow Stamping Technique. You really must try this! It really gives your stamped image a 3D look or almost a raised embossed look. It’s easy and it packs a great wow!
- Cut a piece of Balmy Blue yardstick 5″ x 3 3/4″. Put in the top left hand corner of your stamparatus. Hold in place with magnets.
- Use Whisper White ink to stamp the small flower image from Blessings of Home stamp set. Stamp a second time to get good coverage. Clean your stamp well BUT do NOT remove from the stamparatus. Let the white ink dry.
- Move your piece of Balmy Blue card stock very slightly over to the right. By SLIGHTLY, I mean like one millimeter. It is not much.
- Now ink your flower in Memento Black ink or Misty Moonlight. (The left card above was inked in black. The right hand card in Misty Moonlight.)
- Clean your stamp as it may have picked up some white ink, re-ink, and stamp a second time.
- Next adhere the stamped image to a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Misty Moonlight card stock.
- Adhere this to a card base cut 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.
Here are a few more examples of shadow stamping.

Artfully composed stamp camp
Please join me and 11 talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world for an amazing Stamp Camp experience. This Artfully Composed Stamp Camp will feature the colorful and fun Artfully Composed suite of products. You can see each of the items here:
Unfortunately, the ribbon is currently unavailable in the USA, but you could substitute either of these two ribbons:Product List
This Stamp Camp includes a card kit to make 12 cards…one designed by each of the demonstrators on the Creativity Abounds team. In this card kit you will get the card bases and any pieces of card stock needed to make the card. If a die other than the ones included in the Artfully Layered Bundle is used, it will be cut for you. Envelopes are included as well.
You will use your Artfully Composed patterned paper, Artfully Layered Bundle, ribbon, Faux Sea Shapes, and inks/adhesives.
This kit will come with an emailed written tutorial for each card as well as “unlisted” videos to show you how to make the cards.
On January 28-29, 2022, you will be part of an exclusive Facebook Group where we will have 12 LIVE presentations showing another project made with the suite. As the group is international, some LIVES will be at less convenient times, but they will all be recorded in the FaceBook group and you will have access to them forever.
The only fee to participate in this Stamp Camp is purchase through me of the Artfully Composed Suite (purchased as a bundle, two paper packs, and embellishments with a substitute ribbon) for approximately $90 (depends on the ribbon chosen.) If you already own these products, please substitute any other $90 (before shipping and tax) of products. REMEMBER: add just $10 of product and you will earn 2 FREE $50 Sale-a-bration items or 1 FREE $100 item.
You can order by clicking on this link: SHOP WITH CHATNCRAFT WITH LORRAINE and this will input the host code for you automatically. I will be notified of your purchase and will enroll you in Stamp Camp. Please be sure to order as soon as possible to ensure that nothing becomes unavailable!
About a week before Stamp Camp you will receive your card kit in the mail. Then a few days before the Artfully Composed Stamp Camp starts, you will receive an invitation to join the exclusive Facebook group.
