Stampin’ Up! Three Colors w/One Ink Pad


I’m running late, I need to make a card in a jiffy, I don’t want to make it complicated…what do I do? Stamp, punch, adhere. Whew, that was easy. Hold up, wait a minute! I got ink where it doesn’t belong! Darn it, I’m already late. What now?

MAGGIE MADE TIPS: Not in cash, but great crafting recommendations:

  • One Ink Wonder: Use one ink to stamp three different shades. How? Ensure stamp has even ink coverage before stamping it and do not re-ink. Just stamp it two more times and with each stamp the color will completely change to a lighter color. I used melon mambo and it’s amazing the three shades of beautiful popping color.
  • Oopsie Smearked Ink: Make a mistake? Well, you know there are no mistakes in stamping right!? Simply place an embellishment over it. I put the tiny hearts left overs I had from a previous card and if I said it once, I’ll say it again “never eva eva throw away left over paper that bigger than a nickel.” As you can see, you can still use it!

Don’t have time to stop and make this card? You can buy it here. Envelope included in sealed package to prevent dirt or dirty fingers from touching it for $3.49. Cards are made to order just for you (hearts included).
