How to Make an Instant Card

20190528_163057

We all need quick cards! Let designer paper be your focal point. Cut a design paper 6" by 1-1/4" or 1-1/2". Attach it diagonally to your card front. Look closely. I added two score lines about 1/8" apart and parallel to the sides of the strip. This adds a bit of interest and texture.

These Notecards #131527 are FUN to create!! Simply scribble horizontally using the side of the broad tip of Stampin' Write Markers on GLOSSY cardstock!! BLEND sky colors by overlapping. Do not blend the green "earth." TIP: turn your glossy cardstock upside down to cut which will reduce oily fingerprints that interfere with coloring.

Enjoy Life Stamp Set

20180918_110621

I enjoy creating Sunset/Sunrise cards! "Enjoy Life" Stamp Set #148190 is a lovely silhouette stamp set to use with this FUN technique.

20180918_100214

Here is my process which allows me to reproduce the same card multiple times:

    *Punch or die cut a generous shape in the center of a quarter sheet of scrap cardstock.

    *Lay this template on your cardstock and hold in place. (I just use my fingers.)

    *Using a Sponge Dauber #133773 pounce on an ink pad to collect color, then scrub ink into the opening of the template, using a horizontal motion going beyond the edges of the template.  Blend one color into the next if desired.

    *Mark your colors for use at a later time and keep in the template in your stamp case.

    *Stamp a silhouette in black ink within the window before removing the template.

20180918_110644

This is a lovely, thoughtful sentiment! Try sponging a Sunrise/Sunset!
