Lately, it seems I have zero time. I know we all have 24 hours in a day and it’s how we decide to use it. It is totally not my decision to sit/sleep/rest as much as I am right now but I know my body needs it! This too shall pass! Until then, I need quick and simple card ideas!!! Ones that use minimal supplies are my favorite because then there is more time for creating and less time for picking up! 🙂 Check out these cute cards and all you need is stamps, ink, and paper!
How cute and simple are these little 3″ x 3″ cards!?!?!? I pulled out the Touch of Ink Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, 3 ink pads (Basic Gray, Misty Moonlight, and Crushed Curry) and some cardstock (Basic White and Misty Moonlight). Technically, I guess adhesive and a Bone Folder were used as well but those are already out on my table anyway! 🙂
I really love this butterfly image because it’s so real looking. It’s not all perfect and symmetrical but rather a natural look. There are 2 images in the set. One of them is the outline which I did in full strength Crushed Curry Ink and then the solid background image to “fill in” which I stamped off once before stamping over the outline. You can see on the envelope I stamped just the outline and that alone is stunning!
This card I created the same way with Misty Moonlight and stamping off once for that solid background image. Notice that the solid background image still has spots of no color on the face and wing to really show off texture and dimension on the bird. It’s those fine details that make such a big difference!
Which card is your favorite?? Let me know in the comments below! Remember all you need is stamps, ink, and paper to create a stunning card! It’s that simple! The Touch of Ink Stamp Set is one of the $100 level stamp sets for Sale-A-Bration and it’s SOOOOO worth it. Stock up on inks and paper and maybe even a few embellishments to get this set for FREE. It’s amazing!
