Clean and Simple Card Set with No Coloring

Hi! I find myself often needing a gift set of cards and not much time to create them, so I made a set of 6 clean and simple cards with no coloring - Just stamping! I used products from the September box from The Hedgehog Hollow. I made all 6 of these cards in about 20 minutes. I put a different sentiment on each one, so they're perfect to give as a set, but you could easily make them a set of just thank you cards or even birthday cards!

I love how each of these turned out! I used my Distress Oxide inks because they stamp very smooth and are so easy to clean off of the stamp! Perfect for quick and easy mass produced cards! 

I started by centering the Bountiful Blooms Add-On stamp from the September 2018 box in the center of an A2 card. I used 6 different colors of Distress Oxide inks to create my backgrounds - 

Tattered Rose
Abandoned Coral
Wild Honey
Cracked Pistachio
Peacock Feathers
Wilted Violet

After I had all of my color blocked backgrounds stamped I used the Bountiful Blooms stamp set to stamp the floral fill in image with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink. I love the look of the gray against the colorful backgrounds! I wanted a quick set of cards, so I didn't add any coloring. The stamp has some sketchy lines and I thought that added just the hint of shading that I needed! 

I used 6 different sentiments from the Bloom Where You Are Planted stamp set and stamped them with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink and trimmed them into strips with my paper trimmer. I positioned them on the cards with foam tape. I put each sentiment in a different place to give each card its own uniqueness. It's obvious they are a set, but each one is different! 

I wanted to add a bit more embellishment, so I added some clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh with Ranger Multi Matte Medium. I love how the ink changes color underneath of the droplets! It's so eye catching! Watch my process video below!
