Quick & Easy Projects: How to Make a Fall Card with One Ink Pad

by LeeAnn McKinney

Greetings crafty friends, today I am using my FAVORITE ink pad — Kaleidacolor. This 5-color water-based dye ink pad is very useful for a basic crafting project because it offers a variety of colors and the sliding palette feature gives you a lot of options. The ink pad has a lever to slide each ink pad together and then to pull apart for storing.

To create a beautiful background, just ink up the brayer, and roll it all over the card stock depositing the color down, you can keep going over it multiple times if desired to really get a great blend.

I then stamp out my sentiment and used On Point Glue to adhere falling leaves. I applied three dots of Gold Pico Embellishment to complete this project. I only use Kromekote Glossy Cardstock for this technique and it comes out perfect every time.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 15 minutes
