I was invited to a ladies craft club that meet about an hour from my hometown. These ladies have way more crafting experience than me but I was told that some of them hadn’t stamped before. I was unsure what to demonstrate so I thought use a stamp set that I love and one colour of ink and just keep it to a single layer stamped card.
Here is what I came up with – a very effective card I think
The back ground is stamped using the lace stamp from Touches of Texture. I only inked the stamp once and stamped with it four times – that is how I achieved the different shades going from light to dark. I then stamped the flowers and stems and added a sentiment.
I stamped onto a piece of whisper white 10.1 cm x 14.4 cm then stuck that on to the base card with Snail. The base card was made using a sheet Rose Red card cut in half long ways at 10.5 cm then folded in half to make a tent style card.
This is a great card for introducing stamping to new people and it can easily be stepped up in many ways.
