I was having a play with the Stamparatus today and also wanted to have a last inking of the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set before it retires, although I think this will be one that stays in my stash, at least for a little while.
I have made a Sympathy card (although you could really add any sentiment to this one) in a one layer card, so just thick white cardstock as a card base, no other layers, and stamped directly onto the base.
I have used my Stamparatus grid paper to line up the sentiment and make sure it was very straight. Then used a piece of scrap paper, again, lined up along the grid paper, and then placed the stamped images where I wanted them, inked them up and stamped using the Stamparatus. So easy!!
To create several colours on one stamp, I have stamped in the main colour first, then using a Sponge Dauber, sponged a different colour around the edge or down the centre.
The colours I have used are Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake.
The sentiment comes from the Special Moments stamp set, available FREE during Sale-a-Bration starting 4th January 2022. Not long now!
It was a very quick card to make, no cutting layers and lining things up, and it’s much more fun to be getting inky instead of cutting cardstock layers!!
