See How to Double Stamp to Create a "Give Thanks" Card

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here! Today, I am sharing the double stamping with Memento Ink. One of the most versatile inks are Memento, they come in multiples shades and you can easily coordinate and found colors in between. I am featuring the stamp set Fall Leaves from Joy Clair. This month we are working together and you can find a lot of inspiration with the two brands in our corresponding blogs.

Directions

Bamboo Leaves and Cottage Ivy Memento colors inkpads

Stamp the solid image of the leaves with the lightest color of your Memento Ink. I used New Sprout and a stamping tool to stamp several images at once, but you can use an acrylic block to make the same. With the two darker colors of Memento Ink stamp the lines inside of the first images stamped. I used Bamboo Leaves and Cottage Ivy Memento colors.

stamp the sentiment, "Give Thanks"

Resize your layer and paste it with double-sided foam tape over your card base. To cut mine, I used the large Embossed Edge Square Frame from Kat Scrappiness. In a separate piece of paper, stamp the sentiment, “Give Thanks”. I used one sentiment included on the stamp set Fall Greetings from Joy Clair and Cottage Ivy Memento Ink. Finalize your card adding a colorful frame. I used Marigold/Gold Glossy Rinea Foiled Paper and embossed edge square die cuts from Kat Scrappiness to create mine.

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!

In my research, I found it had an actual name, Tattersall!! You could use line stamps, but I found using markers made this pattern super quick and easy!

Create a Watercolor Effect for a Thank You Card

by Elina Stromberg

Create a Watercolor Effect for a Thank You Card

This easy background technique can be used for creating beautiful soft backgrounds for various paper crafting projects. I used it for decorating a simple one-layer card, embracing our lovely color of the month ‘Fern Green’. The technique is quick and easy, and it requires only a very limited amount of supplies. Just take out your favorite Memento ink pad, any pattern stencil, a sponge dauber, and you’re good to go!

Skill: Beginner
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Place card base flat on your Craft Mat, inside facing down. Wipe the Craft Mat with the ‘Bamboo Leaves’ green ink pad, mist the ink gently with water. Using a Jumbo dauber apply a soft layer of ink on the card base, both on the card front and on the backside. Do not ink the entire card but leave some areas blank. Let dry for a few minutes.


Step 2

Stencil random text patterns on the inked areas. Use the same green Memento ink and a small Sponge dauber.


Step 3

Die-cut the ‘Thank You’ sentiment twice, once from white cardstock and once from dark green. Layer the die-cut words letting the white layer partly show underneath. Glue on the card front. Die cut a branch from dark green cardstock and glue on the card front. If you don’t have a die-cutting machine decorate the card with letter stickers and hand-cut leaves, branches, or flowers.
