Here we go again Cards!

Here we go Again with another set of Cute Cards using a super fun Stamp Set!

Here we go again Cards

But before we get to that… Remember a couple of weeks ago when I had some products that got stranded at the Post Office across town? Well, my package finally arrived – YAY! But unfortunately, I decided not to use ANY of the products in the box to make this week’s cards.

My plan had been to create some Valentine Shaker Cards and add some little pink and red heart sprinkles, just in time for Valentine’s Day. But instead, I opted for my Journey Ink Pad and went in a totally different direction.

The PROCESS:

First, I decided to blend some Journey Ink onto my patterned paper with a blending brush. I figured that this would be a fun way to spotlight the cute little animals in the set. Next, instead of coloring the animals with markers or colored pencils, I decided to do some Block Coloring and it worked out fabulous! I’ve even included the how-to for this Technique below! Then all that was left was some super simple embellishments. Just a few enamel Hearts, Dots and Stars!

The RECIPE:

Here we go Again Stamp + Thin Cuts | Mix-in Paper Pack | Black Cardstock | White Cardstock | White Cards & Envelopes | Intense Black Ink Pad | Journey Ink Pad | Shortbread Ink Pad | Black & White Dots | Journey Dots | Blending Brushes | Foam Tape

The SKETCH:

Grab your supplies and use this PDF document to make each cute card, as shown. Or, use the Sketch designs with different papers and stamps for a completely different look! The choice is yours. <3

The BONUS:

Technique - Coloring with Blocks

BLOCK COLORING TECHNIQUE

  1. Stamp your desired image onto a piece of Cardstock. I used White Daisy and the Bunny image from the Here we go Again Stamp Set.
  2. Next, Grab a block and your desired Ink color. I used Shortbread.
  3. Use the block to pick up some ink directly from your Ink Pad. Make sure to swirl it and then tap it a few times to make sure it’s juicy. Then you will stamp it directly on top of your image until you like the desired result.

If you look closely in the photo you will see some wonderful texture that was picked up from my block and transferred to the bunny! Isn’t it great?! This may be my new go-to for coloring because it’s so simple!

Have a great day, my friend! Be sure to give the technique a try and then let me know your thoughts!
Happy Crafting! <3


As a reminder, many of the products used in today’s example are available at www.stampinbuds.ctmh.com, but only while supplies last!
