What you need:
- any kind of background stamp, and any stamp that has a 'frame' design
- ink pads (you can use a lighter shade and darker shade of one color, or just stick with one ink pad...)
1. Ink your background stamp and stamp it on a piece of cardstock. (Since I scrap 8.5x11" pages, I have lots of 3.5x12" cardstock scraps).

2. Ink your 'frame' stamp. If it's a journaling block stamp like the one I'm using here, carefully ink the 'frame' part of the stamp only and wipe off any excess ink that gets on the inner portion of the stamp.

3. Stamp the frame stamp on the cardstock that has the background stamp design.
4. Simply cut out the stamped frame and you're done! I have the real estate punch, so I used that to punch out the image.
It's a fun and easy way to combine your stamps, huh? :) Here are some other stamp combinations I tried. (SC real estate sign stamp + SC grid stamp, SC pinked circle stamp + SC woodgrain stamp, SC pinked circle stamp + SC grid stamp, and Making Memories journaling block stamp + SC woodgrain stamp).
I used two of the stamped images on a recent scrapbook page I made this weekend:
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial! I thought it was a little boring that all I've been sharing these past few blog entries are my recent scrapbook pages, so I decided to change it up a little. But I'll be back soon with a few more pages I made over the weekend. Happy Monday, friends!
