Switched Shape Stamping Tutorial with Bazzill Card Shoppe

switched shape stamping tutorial

A few weeks ago, I shared here on the blog that my favorite of all the Bazzill 12x12 cardstock is the Bazzill Card Shoppe line. It is 100 lbs and stands up well to stamping, die cutting, and heat embossing. It's thicker than most other cardstocks which means it provides a sturdier base for my handmade cards. This switched shape stamping tutorial is a perfect project for this paper (especially if you like to make multiple cards in one sitting).

Supplies:

To begin, take two coordinating card panels. Make sure they are exactly the same dimensions (this will be important later in the process). The two colors can be shades of each other, or complete opposites on the color wheel.

Stamp a lined image in your favorite ink. Stamp in the same place on both the card panels (it's helpful to have a stamp positioner for this part, like the Misti.) If you'd like, you can even heat emboss with embossing powder.

Now take the two coordinating panels AT THE SAME TIME and run them through your die cutting machine with a shape in the center (circle, oval, heart, whatever you have).

Next, switch the center shapes and adhere to a card base. You can choose to pop up the center shape with foam tape (like I did in the heart cards) or inlay (the oval and circle cards).

Add a sentiment or leave as a plain notecard. These cards are so versatile and can be used for any occasion.

  • WOW!!!! What great idea!! Thanks for sharing this idea. I can make multiple cards and put the ones I don’t need right away in my stash. I’m always trying to find ways to make multiple cards that are similar but not the same. Thanks again.
