Save time and money, and still get beautiful cards? Yes! The whole key to this is in the stamp sets you choose to use.
Don’t let the task of coloring images be your hold-back from making beautiful cards. You don’t have to color, and I’m going to show you what else you can do to save time and money, and storage space!
Many times I see card makers layering on the card stock and Designer Series Paper to avoid having to do anything but stamp a sentiment. I prefer to use rubber stamp art to create my design, but I also prefer not to color because:
- my coloring leaves lines (pencils & markers),
- or saturates through the card stock to the inside (alcohol markers),
- or warps the card stock (watercoloring).
Earlier this year, in a blog post from May 13th, I pulled a list of stamp sets that are either “distINKtive” (a type exclusive to Stampin’ Up!) or two-step stamping (invented by Stampin’ Up! years ago). You can see that blog post here. That May blog post lists stamps from the current Annual Catalog and are all still available for many more months, so bookmark the post and come back to it whenever you’re needing something new!
In today’s post, I’m tightening up my list of favorites to my top ten stamp sets, and am beginning a new teaching series: “How To Avoid Coloring”. Look at how economical these stamp sets are without the dies! I’ve included Flowing Flowers even though it is retired, and it’s not too late to get it! Contact me for a private bundle I’ve created with the stamp set and a package of Note Cards and Envelopes.Product List
