Just Paper & Ink…. Seriously!

Hi Friends,
Today I am going to share a little bit about one layer stamping can be fun and look a lot more work than it really is. When I say “One Layer Stamping” I am thinking “Just paper and ink”!!! nothing fancy but the stamping makes it look like it is more work than it actually is. Lets take a look at how I created today’s card.

Step One: Cut a piece of Whisper White Card Stock to 4″x5 1/4″ and using Merry Merlot ink to stamp your rose stamp from the Forever Lovely Bundle #150580. This is your darkest ink color used in those card.

Step 2: Using your Lovely Lipstick ink pad, stamp that same flower stamp afew more times leading into the center. My watermark above is where your sentiment is going to go so we just want to work on the left hand side.

Step 3: Closing the gap on the left side simply stamp a few more flowers in Flirty Flamingo ink. This technique can be done with almost any stamp but Stampin’ Up!®’s new DistINKtive stamps are perfect for this because they look so dimensional already due to there shading. (DistINKtive stamps are a new style of stamps that Stampin’ Up@ now carry. In one stamp you have varied light and dark areas. They are really fun to play with.

Here is the final ONE LAYER card. Super Simple and perfect for mailing because there are no embellishments 😉
