Two-Step Stamping with SSInkspiration

Two-Step Stamping with SSInk... click on the link below to see the other designers' creations!
Today is my "first day" with students... and although it's really exciting, it's also a long day!  I have to learn 22 names (and really 44 total since I switch with another teacher for 2 hours a day)... my strong point is not learning names!  If you have any ways to remember names, leave a comment and help me out!  I usually try to relate their name to something, ie: Hannah Banana.
The challenge was to make a project using two-step stamping.  You might be wondering what two-step stamping entails?  Do you see the pink flowers?  That is two-stamps!  I stamped the large one and then stamped the smaller one inside.  It's so easy with Stampin' Up!'s photopolymer stamp sets.  They are completely clear so you can see through them to be able to see exactly where you are stamping!

You may be wondering what color of ink I used to get those two pinks?  It's Strawberry Slush - for the larger flower, I stamped it "off" onto scrap paper and then stamped on the Whisper White.  That's how I got the lighter shade.  For the smaller flower I just stamped it into the large flower!  Easy peasy!

My new favorite sentiment comes from a 15% Big Shot Bundle!  It's the Deco Labels Framelits and Oh My Goodies Stamp Set.  That sentiment is perfect for teachers as well.  Make sure to go to my online store and get the bundle before the end of the month at 15% off!

Send me some prayers and good thoughts for my first day back to teaching 5th grade!  Thanks for picking me as your demonstrator!

Love this stamp set and your beautiful card. Thanks for detailing the steps you took to create the look. Good luck with your return to school days. Can't think of any tricks to help you remember your student's names, any better than the one you're using. Hanna Banana works for me!
