More Black Ink Only

Published by at 6 08 am under General Purpose Cards,Inkadinkado

I wanted to play one of my favorite SCS challenges, the Featured Stamper Challenge, but time was limited — very limited! So what do I always so when time is short? I use the same supplies from my last card, that are still always on my work surface (picking up after myself is NOT my strong point — and sometimes that’s a good thing!). So this card uses the EXACT supplies as my last card, with the addition of SU’s Tag Corner Punch added. Here’s my card:


The card I cased from SgtStamper’s Gallery is here. As you can see, I used the basic layout, altering the position of the sentiment, and somewhat mimicking her ribbon placement. I changed all images, papers, colors and the size of the card. Hers appears to be square. Mine is 5.25 x 7″. I have a lot of envelopes to fit this size card and I’m really enjoying this size. It gives me room to use some of the large images I love! And now that I have 2 cards rather matchy-matchy, I just may have to make a third — there’s just something about 3’s!!! Here’s the first if you are interested.

Stamps: Delicate Branches (image) and Southern Belle (sentiment) both by Inkadinkado

Paper: White, Black, Sublime DP by Kaiser

Ink: Versa Fine Onyx Black

Accessories: Dotted Sheer Ribbon, Sublime Brads by Kaiser, Foam Mounting Squares, Pop up Glue Dots by SU, Glue Glider, Eyelet setter for holes, SU Tag Corner Punch.

Note: The INKA stamps, Kaiser Paper and Brads, my Foam Mounting Squares and Glue Glider all came from Joans Garden.

MY FAVORITE BLACK INK for getting a good solid image is Versa Fine Onyx Black. The ink is very black and the raised pad stays wet almost FOREVER. I LOVE this black ink for this type of stamping. It is available at Stampers Dream.

Thank you so much for stopping in. I’ve been absent for a few days as I’ve been shopping and helping DS#2 decorate a living room — fun stuff!!! Hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead!!! I hope to get daily uploads done this week — always the best of intentions!!! Thanks much — see you soon!!!
