More Simple Stamping

I am running out of cards from my Virtual Stamp Night. What am I supposed to do when they are gone? Create something new?! That seems rather drastic. Ah well, I don't have to worry about it tonight.

This card is from the "lots of flowers" challenge and uses one of my new Impression Obsession clear stamp sets. What makes it a quick card is that each flower is made with two stamps. I inked the bottom layer with yellow and stamped it onto glossy paper. I found that glossy paper worked a lot better than white cardstock in showing off the yellow color of the flower. I then inked the outline stamp in brown and stamped it over the yellow. It was really nice to not have to color each flower with markers or pencils. I added a saying and ribbon to finish the card. Very quick and easy!

Great tip on the glossy paper. I never use it because I am afraid of smearing. Thanks!

Stay away from the pigment pads if you are stamping on glossy! Although, VersaMagic isn't bad if you give it some time to dry. It even dries well on vellum. I think it is the only pigment pad that does.

Such a cute card Laura. Yep guess you have to make NEW cards if you're out of ones from VSN!
