Peeps Silicone Shadow Easter Card


Plastic Flamingo, Pumpkin Spice, Lemonade, Jalapeno, Fish Tank, Sugar Plum
Excellent and interesting texture created by the silicone stamp.

Peeps Silicone Shadow Easter Card
I like the shadow technique when applied as a background for clear photopolymer stamps. I also like the many colors of Easter Marshmallow Peeps. Not having neither the shadow stamp nor the peeps stamp I decided to make my own by using Lawn Fawn's Hoppy Easter stamp and die set along with a white silicone placemat.

1st: I trace the shape of the Hoppy Easter die (cutting side up) onto the white silicone placemat and then fussy cut the shape.

2nd: Using double sided tape I then secured the now Hoppy Easter Shadow stamp onto an acrylic block. FYI - Place clear packing tape on both sides of the silicone for stabilization during cutting.

3rd: The Hoppy Easter shadow Stamp can now be used as any normal clear photopolymer stamp and is ready for inking. FYI - Remember to stamp in reverse to mimic the original stamp shape.

4th: This technique can be applied to any die to enhance and expand your stamping pleasure.
