Stamp School: Quick One Layer Birthday Cards and Invites!

Hi friends! Today’s project is a good one when you need a batch of cards or if you just want to practise with a new stamp set because it is on a flat sheet of cardstock. Limited supplies=fast & frugal!

blogbirthdayballons

Watch the video to see how it’s done! I apologise for the long video but this is a “stamp School” video and I want to make sure all the steps are clear. If you are making a batch of these I suggest you work “assembly line” style and stamp each item on each card before grabbing the next stamp, it saves a ton of time!

Video!

Tips:
When stamping one layer cards think about the ink you are using for subsequent layers. Blue stamped over yellow may take on a green cast and a lighter color stamped over a darker color may not show up at all.

When you are using a layering stamp but you don’t have many colors of ink you can keep overlapping the same ink color until the desired darkness is achieved.

Don’t worry about being perfect, these fun cards area fantastic way to get to know a new stamp set and when you are done you have a new batch of cards to show for it! Besides, people love to get a handmade card even if it isn’t perfect!

Fabulous One Layer Cards // Use Your Stash // 20% off RST

Howdy friends! I have a problem, I’ve mentioned it before, I hoard supplies. Oh, I have no problem using them or sharing them but just purging them? Never! And it’s a good thing because every once in a while I think of a way to use an oldie but goodie, in this case rub-on transfers (AKA rub-ons.)

I urge you to dig out any old rub-ons you have and try making these cards. Rub-ons can crack and not transfer as they age so let’s make sure they get used! Watch the video to learn a new way to make a quick card.

Video!

No rub-ons? Don’t worry, these cards would be just as pretty with a stamped sentiment and if you want to do the resist technique I share in the video simply stamp in clear and emboss in white and it will work the same, or write your sentiment with a white crayon, get creative people! 🙂

The stamps I used are from our sponsor Rubber Stamp Tapestry! Get 20% off your mounted stamp order of $10 or more with coupon code: ONELAYER *Offer good through 6/25/16

Supplies:

Tip! If you own several peg stamp sets mix them up for more options and versatility! I store mine all together to I can combine them easily on projects!

Directions:
1. Mask area where your sentiment will be with tape or a post it note.
2. Ink around mask with a light ink and then fill the area with small stamped images.
3. Remove mask and outline masked area with a fine tip black marker.pen.
4. Apply rub on in masked area. If you are using a white rub on on white paper apply watery ink over the rub on to make it show up.
5. Flick on ink as desired!

These are fun to make in batches. Get creative with your stamps and use up those old rub-ons! I love using up old stash, it helps me justify buying new stash!
