Back to Stamping!

Hello, Fresh Squeezed friends! It's Virginia here sharing a simple card with you. It's all about STAMPING!! There isn't a single piece of pattern paper or embellishment involved! It is completely FLAT and it's perfect for mailing

This 100% stamped card has that "special something" that a printed card does not have! It has a whitewash look- rustic and organic!  Each balloon was stamped multiple times (white chalk ink and various colored dye inks).  After stamping the balloons, I then stamped the strings in black.  I also inked up the edges to make the design look more cohesive. At the end, I embossed the sentiment from this set Inside Scoop: Birthday.  The balloon image is from Life of the Party.

I hope this has inspired you to try stamping with kraft cardstock. The effect is satisfying and!  Thanks for stopping by!!
