Hello and welcome to my YouTube Channel and blog;  Today I recorded my second episode of Saturday’s Simple Stamping.  This series is all about using just stamps, ink, and paper.  Yes, it’s back to the basics.  This is also geared toward the beginning stampers or someone that has thought about stamping but has been afraid to try.  I am here to help you learn the art of stamping, and to have the courage to put stamp to paper.  There’s nothing like the feeling you get when you put stamp to ink and ink to paper for the first time.  The feeling of excitement you get when someone sees your stamped creation.  Here’s a look at today’s card.  

 I feel in love with this cute thanks stamp with the little bee on top of the n back in April when I got my first look at the 2018 Annual Catalog.  It just lends itself to so many different technique, and is a good size for most cards.  The large font and size of the stamp is so on trend right now.  And, let me just say that the Bee adds a little touch of whimsy to the set.  This little bee is just asking for you to pick your favorite coloring media and be colored.  The Bee Thankful Stamp Set comes in Red rubber in both clear and wood mount.

In the video I not only share with you today’s simple stamping card but I also share with you a few tips to help you make multiple cards at once.  

You want to line up a couple note cards along the score line and mask off the top of the note card at the top.  At that point you can start stamping.  You can stamp at the top over the top of the note card and the masking paper.  Next move down to the score line and bottom of the other note card and stamp.  Stamp the bottom of the last note card.  You’ve now stamped two cards and now all you have to do is add the black ink to the stamp and stamp the bee thankful stamp in the middle of each note card.  And, that quick you have made two cards.   

Here’s one more little tip for you.  For bigger stamps its easier to flip the stamp over and bring the ink to the stamp.  Instead of bringing the stamp to the ink pad.  This method allows you to see how your inking up the stamp, and allows you to get the right amount of ink on the stamp.  Where as if you take the larger stamp and ink it up the other way you can not see how much ink in applied.
