Keeping it Simple

Keeping it Simple

Let’s start the month off with something simple, shall we?

I love Tim Holtz stamps, and the blueprint style series is great to use for simple cards like this.

Stamp your image twice, once on kraft colored cardstock, and once on a good quality white cardstock. Let your ink dry (or use a heat gun to set your ink if you’re impatient) and then color the white version with your favorite medium. I used water color pencils and a water brush, but markers, paints or crayons would also work. Cut the white image out, and layer it with foam dots on top of the kraft image, and you’re done.

Quick, easy, and lovely results, what’s not to love?

What’s your favorite simple card technique?

Don’t forget, if you’d like to receive a card from me, make sure you’ve signed up on my email list. The sign up box is at the top right hand side of the page! I’d love to send a thank you your way!

  1. Nice contrast, kraft and colors. I’m not a big fan of coloring, maybe because I can’t seem to stay inside the lines, so I choose images that I can stamp with a color and be done. Lazy??

What do you think?
