Floral stamps are always a fun way to incorporate the spotlight technique. For this design, Barbara stamped flowers and leaves from the Fancy Flowers Card Kit on her card base and on stamped the pattern again on a card stock panel. By coloring the flowers only on the panel, she has spotlighted them. Fun, huh?

Similarly, Guest Designer Lisa Henke stamps cute doggies from the Playful Pups stamp set on a white card stock panel, and then stamps, colors, and die cuts one of the images and pops it up on a frame giving him the spotlight.

Many of our intricate background stamps are perfect for the spotlight technique. Stephanie stamped the Bundles of Blossoms Background stamp in black on white card stock and stamped it again in the shape of a rectangle. She simply colored that one section and then popped it up for a breathtaking effect.
