Now for some crafting creativeness! The first card for today, I wanted to have something for those of us who have little time lately but want cards mad fun and fast! What's better than actually creating a card about being creative! Check out the supplies and instructions.

  1. Stamp Weathered Wall with waterproof brown ink onto white cardstock.
  2. Sponge bright ink randomly covering the entire stamped surface.
  3. Stamp Do Something Creative stamp with waterproof black ink three times. Use stamp positioner if desired.
  4. Trim to edge of stamped image and frame with black cardstock. Spray with Shimmering Bliss Iridescent.
  5. Glue to the kraft card base.
It may or may not be early for Mother's Day card, so I'm sharing a fun technique with the Flower Trio stamp that just happens to use a pretty font sentiment that's for Mothers Day. It's a detailed but dense image, so I used it to my advantage to color with ink! 

Change up the color cardstock to white and whatever array of ink pads you have for a fun and quick card.

Again supplies and instructions.

    1. Ink up Flower Trio with bright color ink, use a sponge if needed.
    2. Mist with water from spray bottle and stamp onto the top half of kraft cardstock. Repeat as needed with stamp positioner for deeper colors.
    3. When dry, stamp black over colored image. 
    4. Rotate to stamp image again in previous steps.
    5. Stamp sentiment with black ink and glue to pink card base.
