Distress Ink Enveloper Note Cards

I had my Waffle Flower Enveloper Little Birdie stamp set out, and I have been wanting to just use ink on it (no embossing powder, no hand coloring, no painting).

The “possibilities” card is regular Distress inks, the “thanks” card is Distress Oxide inks. I used my MISTI, and cleaned the stamp between ink colors. The ink blending happened on the paper, not on the stamp.

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, Waffle Flower, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Rander Distress Inks Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Oxide inks Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.

Snail Mail Note Card

YES, the retired Turtle & Co stamp set is still on my work table! (and I still haven’t finished my spring cleaning OR Mother’s Day cards! YIKES!)

I colored the snail with Copic markers, and added Glossy Accents to the shell (and a little bit of a slime trail).

My inner Star Wars geek has a message for you:  May the 4th be with you!
