I also want to remind you about the 2018-2020 In-Colors that will soon be retiring and it’s time to stock up on all your favorites. And today’s video will have you falling in love and wanting to make these simple monochromatic cards.



Simple Monochromatic Cards + Tips for Stamping With Large Stamps

First, let’s talk BIG background stamps.  I have an easy way to stamp with them that will make sure you always get a great image.  But then….let’s talk about how to get simple monochromatic cards in simple steps….actually just check out today’s video for all my tips and samples!

And, what do you think?  Did I make it easy enough for you?  Ready to make your own simple monochromatic cards?  I hope so!


All 5 of the cards today were made with the soon to retire In-Colors.  I will be so sad to see these colors disappear!

If you like these colors, I highly recommend getting your re-inkers and Cardstock now before it is sold out.  Technically they are all available until June 2nd, BUT, in years past, this is the time of year these items start to sell out.  Don’t be disappointed….order your favorites now!

Now, Back To the Cards

I made basically the same monochromatic card with each of the colors.  The only difference is that the layer under the stamped layer I did some in the color and some in white.  It really did change the look of the card, but I am not sure which I liked the best?  Do you have thoughts on this?
