card making :: berry burst

With Valentine’s day around the corner, I’ve been pulling out all of our love and heart themed stamps and ink pads to create cards.  Here are a couple of examples of designs that were created using a particular Stampin’ Up! ink pad color: berry burst.

One way you can stretch the use of an ink pad is to stamp an image more than once without reinking it.  In this example I stamped the flower images a couple of times before going back to the ink pad so that the images would be lighter each time they were stamped.  It makes it look like I used 3 or 4 ink pads, and it makes layering images easy to do.

Another great way to use an ink pad is with a dauber tool that picks up some of the color so you can apply it to a surface in a subtle way.  In this example I didn’t have cardstock in the same shade so I colored a piece of white paper using a dauber and the berry burst ink pad to create something that would come close to it.

Happy crafting!
