Hey everyone! It’s EK, and I am popping into to share a one layered card to inspire someone right now. I don’t know about you, but morale is a little low in my house, so I thought maybe I should make some cards to help inspire my kiddos to do their best work. I just love how the Soar Collection stamp set by Suzanne Cannon is filled with inspirational quotes perfect to inspire anyone.
Step One: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Trim a circle out of a piece of masking tape and adhere it to the cardstock.
Step Two: Blend some water reactive inks onto the Soft Finish Cardstock to create a night sky. I used Distress Oxides in Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, and Hickory Smoke.
Step Three: Using a black water reactive ink, blend ink around the edges of the cardstock to ground the image. I used Distress Oxide Black Soot.
Step Four: Using both clean water and an iridescent spray, splatter the cardstock to create stars.
Step Five: Peel off the mask to expose the moon. Add some pale blue ink to the revealed area. I used Distress Oxide in Tumbled Glass.
Step Six: Tape the A Way With Words Flourished Frame stencil from Suzanne Cannon over the inked cardstock.
Step Seven: Blend white pigment ink through the Flourished Frame stencil to create a frame around the card.
Step Eight: Stamp a sentiment onto the card frame from the A Way with Words Soar Collection stamp set. To be honest, any of the sentiments on the card would be perfect for this card, but I went with the Shoot for the moon sentiment.
I really love how with just a stencil, a stamp set and some ink you can create a really inspiring card. All of Suzanne Cannon’s sentiment stamp sets are perfect to create on layered inked cards.
