Many times people will ask what supplies they most likely need to start stampin’, and besides cardstock and stamps, I always recommend Basic Black ink.
I am sharing some of my favorite projects from the past that were very popular as part of a card class event that I held. Each card starts with the image stamped in Basic Black ink. The simple image was then colored and paired with coordinating cardstock and accessories. Simply started with no complicated technique. Just stamp in black and add color!
The images above are of a card that I created using the retired set “cute as a bug”. Each “bug” is stamped in black, then colored. Very simple and easy to make.
The next pair of images are of a card made using the same simple strategy. Stamp the image in black and color. No fancy technique, just a basic image (&a greeting) stamped in Basic Black.
(the above stamped zebra image is from the retired Stampin’ Up set “Zoofari”).
The next and final set of images I am sharing is the same concept. There’s nothing easier than using our Basic Black ink to stamp the image of your choice. The image is crisp and clean and fun to color! Add accessories and voila! You’ve got a fun card! (The comical little crab image is from a retired stamp set called “Crab & Company”).
