Hi everyone! I’m back after a bit of a hiatus from stamping. My puppy tore her ACL and had to have surgery, so I spent a couple weeks helping her get around during her recovery. Then I was packing up stuff and I went to a stamping retreat which was a lot of fun. Here is the aftermath…… LOL
Yes, my studio looks like this right now as I’m typing up this post. I have a lot of unpacking to do, but I was able to whip up a sweet little chocolate flower card to share with you today. This card with the chocolate flower squares is a cute little 3×3 notecard, and you can put together a set of these in less than 30 minutes.
I stamped the Peonies Squared from the A281 sheet (Bold Nature Scenes) with some chocolate ink onto some cream colored cardstock. I trimmed the stamped image out and glued it down onto a chocolate card.
It really helps to have a well-inked inkpad when inking up a solid stamp like this. If you find that your images are coming out blotchy, try reinking your inkpad first. You can also make sure you clean your stamp really well – sometimes there is a little residue left on the stamps from the manufacturing process. Using a stamp positioning tool such as a MISTI is a big help when you need to re-stamp your image.
I’m going to get back to unpacking, so hopefully everything will be put away before my next Art Neko post. Hee hee hee! Have a great week!
