The touch of ink stamp set is a Tier 2 Sale-A-Bration offering. It’s a two-step stamp set and what this means is that the first image stamps the outline, while the next will fill in the colour. This stamp set is what I would also call a ‘forgiving’ stamp set. I just love that the fill-in image is not precise. So if you’re slightly out in alignment, it doesn’t look wrong and it ‘forgives’ you!

This first card I created is quick to make and is great if you need something in a hurry or if you are starting out in cardmaking. It just involves SIP (Stamps, Ink and Paper) and a few Matte Black Dots which is one of my favourite products in this catalogue.

For my next card, I used our fabulous new Blending Brushes (another fave!) to add a stepped up element. Check out my video below to see how lovely these brushes are to use.

Some extra detail with an embossing folder and a heat embossed image step this card up for the Avid crafter. With several sentiments included, this stamp set can be used for a variety of occasions and is suitable for whichever level of crafting you may be at.

I created this card on my weekly Creative Escape Facebook Live session which is held on Wednesday at 7:30pm.

This week I reached 500 FB Likes and as a thank you to my customers, I am offering 10% off all orders placed by Sunday 24th January. Please phone or text me on Ph: 0404 255 001 to place your order as the discount can’t be applied online. All orders over $90 will also receive a free product from the Sale-A-Bration offering.

Please contact me with any queries and to place your order.

Step-it-Up Lily Pad Birthday Card

Hi Friends,

I’ve got a Step-it-Up card for you today using 3 free Sale-A-Bration products. Some of you maybe familiar with a series I ran a couple of years ago called Step-it-Up Sunday. Each Sunday I would feature a card made for the beginner crafter, casual crafter and the avid crafter. It’s not a Sunday (I need a weekend … again!) but it’s step-it-up time here at Stamping Flair.

This card features some simple stamping on a Whisper White card base. The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set is a reversible stamp set so the outline of the lily is on one side of the stamp. Flip it over and you have the fill in image.

I love how simple this stamp is to use and hey, you don’t have to worry about lining it up because no matter how hard you try, it’s not going to. That’s just how it’s designed – love it. Then I added some background splattering with the Artisan Textures stamp set in Coastal Cabana. Pretty, simple and quick. Perfect if you are a Beginner Crafter or need a card in a hurry.

The card for the Casual Crafter (someone who crafts occasionally) has been stepped up with a bit of die cutting.

More detail has been added to the card for the Avid Crafter (papercrafting addict). I added the beautiful die cut black border which makes the DSP pop. 

I added more depth to the stamped lily by shading with Stamin’ Blends. This colouring medium is beautiful to work with and it’s great quality and very user friendly. You don’t need to be an artist to use them.
