Cardmaking with Limited Supplies – Day 2

Ink Road Stamps, Majestic AF stamp set, Australia

Sharing is caring!

Sometimes one of the best things you can do is limit your supplies when creating. Not only is it less messy, but it can stretch your creativity, culminating in a collection of fully coordinated cards! In this 3 part video series I will show you how I used the same supplies to create 3 very different cards.

I used the same materials for all three cards in this series, but you could definitely sub in a different colour scheme if you’re not into pink 🙂

METHOD: Card 2
1. Stamp the smaller unicorn using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink on the background panel of white cardstock.  Fill in empty areas with the star, rose and circle stamps.  Be sure to stamp off the edge to create an all-over effect.
2. Use the ink blending tool to ink around the edge of the stamped background.
3. Stamp the large unicorn onto one of the diecut rectangle blending card panels. Colour with copic markers.  Add dotted details to the mane using a white gel pen.  Stamp the greeting below the unicorn with the Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.
4. Adhere the diecut rectangle to the centre of the pink cardstock panel.  Apply foam tape to the back of the pink panel and adhere to the centre of the stamped background panel.
5. Spatter pearlised water across the entire card panel.  Place a large drop of pearlilsed water inside each stamped circle shape.
6. Adhere the card background panel to the front of the white card base and stamp the small unicorn inside the card with the Picked Raspberry Oxide Ink.
