Happy Monday, all! Today I have a “back to basics” card for you! I loved creating cards like this years ago, so inking up some stamps for cards like this was familiar and comforting (as weird as that sounds). Not only are these colorful and fun card, but they go through the post very easily because they are one-layer cards. :)
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
I used one stamp set for both cards, Playful Animal Friends 1 from Pinkfresh Studio. I’ve had this stamp set in my stash for ages just waiting for a good chance to use them! I decided to create clean and simple cards using a few of the critters and Distress Oxide inks.
The colors of Distress Oxide I used are:
NOTE: I do not stamp more solid stamps like this with original Distress Ink (the results aren’t as good–I reserve original Distress Ink for techniques). However, Distress Oxide Ink is wonderful for direct stamping!
I hope you all enjoy the card! Thanks for stopping by today!
