Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea! Are you ever just in the mood to stamp? No frills, no fuss – just stamping? I LOVE silhouette stamps for this reason! And today I have a trio of cards that took me no time at all to make, but I was able to spice them up a bit with some multi color inking! And I have a video at the end of this post to show you just what I mean!
I used the Vitamin Sea stamp set from Echo Park for each card in the set, but I changed up the images and colors to make them interesting!
You KNOW I just HAD to make a yellow submarine! Haha! I started each card with a gray sentiment. I think gray is an underrated color for sentiments. I frequently find myself reaching for black for sentiments, but the gray makes an impact in its own way, too! To add some dimension to my stamping I started by stamping the submarine with a yellow ink using my MISTI. Without moving the stamp I inked up the bottom portion of the submarine with a darker yellow ink and used a towel to dab away some of the ink so there wouldn’t be a harsh line of ink. I did the same thing with the crab using two colors of red ink.
I repeated the same process for my second card. I stamped my sentiment first in the center of my card using gray ink. Welllll …. I tried to stamp it in the center. I was about a quarter of an inch to the right of center haha! I lined up the fish with the sentiment and stamped a light orange first and then a dark ink second using a towel to dab off some ink to create a more seamless “blend” of ink. Once all my stamping was done I chopped off a quarter of an inch from the left of my card so that the images would appear centered. That makes this card 4 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches tall. I kind of like it!
I decided to do three colors of ink for my last card. I used a light pink for the body of the jellyfish, blue for the middle, and ending with some lavender at the bottom of the tentacles. I made sure to use a towel and dab away ink before each stamping. Be sure to watch the video below to see my multi inking technique!
Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea! I know many of us find ourselves scrambling in November and December to create Christmas cards for friends and family. At Scrapping for Less we are celebrating Christmas all year long! Once a month we will be sharing inspiration for a Christmas card! I used the Photoplay Here Comes Santa paper pad and a sentiment from the Stocking Full of Joy stamp set from Your Next Stamp to create a set of 7 Christmas cards!
I used about 5 pieces of patterned paper to create these 7 cards! And in the end I only had 2 little strips left! And I created all 7 cards in about 20 minutes! Yay! I have a video tutorial at the end of this post so make sure you check it out!
I started by cutting up some pieces of patterned paper – some had little images (like pictured above) and some into strips of varying widths. I didn’t follow any sketches, but these are super basic layouts that can be easily replicated!
I needed a sentiment for some of the layouts and the “Happy Holidays” sentiment from the Stocking Full of Joy stamp set seemed perfect! I love the little script!
I had a bunch of strips of paper left over, so I decided to use them to create one more card! Plus I couldn’t let that little Santa image go unused!
Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea and I created a set of one layer cards perfect for Spring using the Warm Spring Wishes stamp set from Gina K Designs!
I created my own stencil to use for these cards. It was so simple to do – I just took a piece of stencil plastic and die cut a circle from the center! I actually used the negative piece – the center circle – and adhered it to the center of my cards and used two colors of Distress Oxide Sprays over the top – Cracked Pistachio and Iced Spruce.
The basic layout of all four of my cards is the same. I stamped the leaf image from the Gina K Designs Warm Spring Wishes stamp set repeatedly around my masked circle and stamped a butterfly in the center. I used Distress Oxide Inks for all of my stamping except for the sentiment – I used Versafine Onyx Black ink for that.
I hope you’ll check out my video below for the tutorial! Thanks for stopping by!
