today I am sharing a set of Thank You cards that I made using less supplies than I normally do. And these were so fast to make. I also got the chance to play with a new gorgeous alpha stamp set that I recently got. I so love this set and how it makes possibile stamping each letter close to eachother so that it seems that the words are stamped all at once. Love the font also!
I had a background stamp that I stamped on all my cards with various colored inks. On one of the cards I used a pigment ink to stamp the background and that made possible the embossing with some clear powder, as these pigment inks stay wet longer onto the paper.
To make these even faster I used the wonderful MISTI tool that acts like a positioning stamp tool but also allows to stamp and restamp again the same image on the exact same spot! How cool is that! I sometimes get uneven inking onto my stamps and the stamped image is not great. So by using the MISTI I can go and restamp again right on the same spot.:)
Once my backgrounds were all finished, I stamped the sentiments letter by letter with some black ink and decorated my cards with a silver gem.
The embossed card I finished it up differently as I couldn’t stamp my greeting on the background there. So I just trimmed it out, added a black ribbon and stamped the sentiment right on the card.
Using stamps like these are such a big help when you need to create a lot of cards that don’t require too much time making them.
Here is a list of the supplies I used.
Thx for stopping by!
