I started by putting some distress ink (Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, and Weathered Wood) on my Ranger non-stick craft sheet.
Spritz with water to get the colors to blend - wow do they pop after a bit of water! I put my stamp on a grid ruler so lining it up would be easy while stamping.
Press your stamp in the "ink pad" on your craft sheet, and ink away!
I kept rotating the stamp and cleaning it so the pattern wouldn't be uniform.
I added a little more ink, but less water to create a second panel. Adjusting the water can really change the stamped image. I like both of these, but they definitely look different.
For my first card, I cut a lot of circles with a punch.
The edges were inked with vintage photo distress ink to give a bit more depth. My handy grid ruler helped me find the center of the panel:
And to align the rest of the circles. This part was inspired by another blog post using circles on a card.
To make the edges a bit glitzy, I rubbed versamark ink onto the edges, and then sprinkled gold embossing powder over the edges.
Add a bow, and you're done!
To create the other two cards, I die cut pieces from the paper to fit stamps.
These images were embossed with copper embossing powder.
A little distress ink on the edges helps to add depth.
I love how this kit can be used for vintage-y feeling cards, as well as for bright and cheerful cards. Check out the Club Scrap blog on Wednesday to see a totally different vibe for the stamps and paper from the Bon Appetit collection.
