As a card maker, we all have our struggles. For me, I still struggle with SIMPLE. One layer cards are hard for me....normally. The Stampin' Up Tape It stamp set is wonderful- and wonderfully EASY to make a simple card!
I also used my favorite stamp set: Gorgeous Gunge . The crow came from the Toil and Trouble stamp set from the Holiday catalog. Easy and Simple, right? I used Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Basic black ink.
Remember that I said you can change the ink with the tape it set and change the whole look of the card?
Using the same tape it stamp set- I changed the colors to Real Red, Gumball green and used the new Gold Metallic Encore Ink Pad . Notice that I still used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set here as well. I always use caution when stamping with this set. Just a hint, Red ink can give you an interesting look!! (think a GREAT blood splattered Halloween card!!!)
I love stamp sets that I can get a lot of mileage out of, by simply changing the ink, I have a whole different card! I love the little bit of metallic glimmer that the gold ink adds! I did find when stamping on the whispering white cardstock, I needed to heat set the metallic ink because the whispering white cardstock is so slick. This was an easy quick fix!
Thanks for stopping by today! What craft projects are you working on? Anyone DONE with all their Christmas cards yet??!!!
