Illusion Trick Card – Tips Tricks and Techniques Friday

It is Friday! Happy Fri-YAY everyone! What does that mean is for the blog? – Tips, Tricks, and Techniques. Today I have an Illusion Trick to give the look of multiple layers on a card. This week we focused on the Peaceful Deer Bundle from the July–December 2021 Mini Catalog.

This card uses the Illusion Trick showing multiple layers but yet it only one. Stamped with the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!.

The card above is made with only one layer of cardstock. I will be showing you an illusion trick where I will show you how to make this card. I will be ink blending and then overstamping to give the illusion of multiple layers on a card. It is such a simple trick and pretty with solid images as I created above. Let’s begin.

Supplies to do the Illusion Trick I demonstrated today in order to make a card that looks multilayered.

The above picture shows the products and stamps I used to make the Illusion Trick card.

  • First start by masking off a portion of the card front with two large post it notes.
  • Using blending brushes, blend the colors you want to use onto the cardstock to get your area prepped for your images.
  • Keep blending until you are happy with the amount of ink and look you wish to achieve.
  • Stamp the solid images first. If you want to put a splatter dots on it to bleed the ink do it now.
  • I used a small paintbrush with water on it to add splatter dots to my night sky.
  • Next I stamped the other two images. These were not solid.
  • I also stamped a small line stamp to notate the ground below the deer and bunny.
  • Using a Stampin’ Write Marker in Basic Black, color in the line images to make them look as if they are solid.
  • I colored each image a few times to get it as dark as I wanted.
  • I even went over the solid trees to make them more black.
  • Peel off both of the post it notes.
  • You are left with a card that looks like it is multiple layers.

Here are some close-ups below.
