Colorful Stamping on Kraft Card Stock | One Layer Card

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope all of you that celebrate has had a wonderful day with the one you love...even if you are single...its good to love yourself!!

I wanted to share with you on how to stamp with colorful inks onto kraft card stock!  I love the look of kraft - but it is hard to achieve colorful stamping just with the inks alone.  So, I wanted to revisit an oldie but a goodie technique.

With this tutorial, I also created a one layer card, which can be difficult at times too.  We all love to add dimension and pretty embellishments to our cards, but it is good to have one layer cards as they are easy to mail!

Below is my tutorial on this card!!

I love how this masked off technique also gives the illusion of dimension without having dimension at all!!

Unfortunately, I couldn't find the stamp set I used on the Stamps of Life website as it was a special thank you set for being a club member. But you could use any flower sets you may have to achieve the same look!  Enjoy the tutorial
