Simple handmade card

A simple handmade card using just the Penny Black Bugsy and Owly clear stamp set, paired off with Lawn Fawn dialogue bubble clear stamp set.  Well, you can just leave that dialogue bubble out and I think it will still turn out really well.

This whimsical and playful clear stamp is really adorable.  I am only using the bird for this card, wait till you see the cute owls and other sentiments, it’s really a fun set of stamps to create cute greetings.

Well, the trick is using very basic stamp to create a totally different image.  I have used the branch from the clear stamp set and created a whole tree.  Use different color pigment ink (green and brown) for the branch and leaves, and it’s done!

Very minimal coloring, just playing around with ink pads and stamps.

Supplies and Tools

  • Cream card base
  • Extra cream card stock for the dialogue bubble (optional)
