Create-a-Card: 20th Edition

Posted by Wendy

Sometimes it’s fun to revisit older products and mix them in with new. Stamps are so versatile, you can achieve many different looks with one set.  After getting my fun new Hero Arts Ink Daubers, I decided to play with the Hero Arts “Type” set (CL483).

Here are the supplies I used for today’s card…

And here is the quick card I made…

I swiped some ink daubers on a panel of watercolor paper and used foam tape to pop it up on my card base.  Did you know all those fun little squares of VersaColor Ink in our store can be EMBOSSED? It was a revelation to me. The typewriter was stamped on a scrap of cardstock and I used my large pad of black VersaColor ink to stamp, then embossed the image with clear powder.

The Lawn Fawn polaroid die is becoming a fast favorite, it’s great to be able to cut out a quick frame for a card or layout whenever you need one. A few pearls and a sentiment finished the card off, quick and simple. Meghan pinned some more ideas featuring these stamps on Pinterest, check them out {here}.

We’re all moved in to 10 Pippy Place, and regular business hours have resumed and we look forward to your next visit to our new and improved ‘happy place’. We now have a self-serve coffee station where you can pay $1 to enjoy a delicious hot coffee (and support a worthwhile cause) while you browse. More about that later!

See you soon,

  1. I think there’s a “pearl” embossing powder that The Paperie sells – when you use a coloured (VersaColor) ink underneath it, you get amazing results! (I looove embossing)
    Am really growing to love the concept of daubers… Thanks for posting!
