Stamp School #2 How to Ink a Stamp

Hi friends! In this weeks Stamp School lesson we will make this card:


You will need:

  • 1 sheet of white cardstock
  • Inkpads in shades if red, green and black
  • Paper trimmer
  • Button and string (if desired)
  • Optional: Paint brush and water/waterbrush

The first technique you will need when learning how to stamp is how to apply ink to a stamp. I know it seems basic but many people get it wrong. Today I will show you a no-fail way and we will create a beautiful card. you will also learn how to make background paper which is a great way to practice and good for scrapbookers too plus you will always have paper to match your project! Interested yet? Watch the video to learn how!


I hope you are enjoying stamp school, I sure am! Next week we will be sing water-based markers, I will use the Spectrum Aqua markers (affiliate link) but you can use whatever water-based makers you have. The Spectrum Aquas are nice if you want to pick some up though. You can catch last weeks episode on basic supplies here if you missed it. Thanks for stopping by ad til next time happy crafting!

  2. Lindsay, thank you so much for video number 2! I enjoy all of your videos and the time you put into them. I have learned so much about watercolor from you, and now I am so excited to start stamping! Thank you!


  3. Lindsay, this is a great series of videos. I wish they had been available when I first started paper crafting. I kept using the wrong type of ink whenever I would try to color something and I got very frustrated and just stopped doing it. These are a wealth of information everyone. I just love your videos. You are just a hoot to watch. I love your bubbly personality. Thanks for all you do for us. We truly appreciate it.
