Hello my friends! So today I am going to be sharing two simpler cards using the same set. I used the A Touch of Ink stamp set that is a level 2 Sale-a-bration item. This means you can get this set for free when you spend $120. It has really cute images and the sentiments are also very versatile.
On the first card I stamped the hummingbird and the flower images onto a small piece of Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The entire flower image did not fit on my small piece of cardstock so I just stamped the top portion of the image. I then used my Stampin' Blends to colour in the images. I used Old Olive and Petal Pink. I then used our new Blending Brushes to add some Balmy Blue ink to fill in the background so it would not be too much white on white.
I also stamped my sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a small piece of Basic White cardstock. I added Balmy Blue using the blending brushes to the sentiment piece as well.
I used a Basic White Thick card base. I then added a layer of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder. I wrapped a piece of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon around the embossed piece and tied it into a bow. I added this to my card base using dimensionals I then added my stamped image and my sentiment to the card front using dimensionals.

For the second card, I used the A Touch of Ink stamp set as well.
I stamped the flower and hummingbird images using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on to a piece of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image three times and positioned the hummingbird so it looked like it was getting some nectar from one of the flowers. This stamp set is a two-step stamp set. This means that there is an outline of the image and then a second stamp that fills in the images. I stamped the second step of the flower image using Flirty Flamingo ink. For the hummingbird, I inked up the second step stamp in Granny Apple Green ink and then used a sponge dauber to add Poppy Parade ink to the belly area and then stamped it down.
I used a Basic Black card base. On top of this, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock. Before I attached the Basic White piece, I stamped my sentiment in the lower right corner using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
I added a Basic Black mat to my stamped piece and then added this to my card front using dimensionals.
To finish off the card, I added some Clear Epoxy Drops.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed these cards. They are a little simpler but I think they are still fun. Sometimes simpler is better. It looks like we will be having perfect weather for staying inside and making cards.
Stay well and keep creating!
