Today, I’m sharing these fun stamped cards using the new Today and Outline stamp sets from May (Don’t forget to pre-order!).

Stamp repeatedly to create fun patterns that can be used as-is or as backgrounds

I’ve always loved stamping. And I naturally gravitate towards just stamping with black ink. But recently, I’ve fallen in love with colored inks. So I decided to combine my love for stamping and colored inks to create these cards.

Stamp repeatedly to create fun patterns that can be used as-is or as backgrounds

For the thank you card, I used the alphas in the Outline stamp set and highlighted Thank You with a different color. The Hello card uses arrows from the Today stamp set to create a muted pattern that can be used as a background.

I picked my favorite dye ink colors for the Love card and just stamped repeatedly. I did the same thing for the Today card and just switched up the colors.

YOUR CHALLENGE: Use colored inks (any color but black) + a repeated image to create a stamped pattern that can be used on its own or as a background.

  1. Your love card is my favourite. I’ve never tried anything like that, yours look fab I may have to give it a go.

  2. Loving the LOVE card. The colours are so vibrant – I need to use colours more when stamping!

  3. For some reason I always think that has to be complicated to hand-make cards but I love how simple it can be to make great looking cards!

  4. Oh I love these cards Amelia! I always seem to use black ink as well but will definitely be trying different colors now 🙂
