Stamp Simple Challenge #58


This week's challenge over on Sharon Johnson's blog (notimetostamp) is to keep it FLAT. With the rising cost of everything these days ... including postage ... sending a flat card will certainly save you a few bucks. With the holidays not all that far away, I've put together a few gift sets of Thomas Kinkade cards.
I can't believe I didn't even use ribbon on these cards (ribbon is somewhat of an addiction with me in case you hadn't noticed, LOL).
I simply stamped the image using India Ink Black onto glossy white ... colored them here and there with various SU inks ... added a little prisma glitter and there you have it ... very simple and festive!
Please take time to check out Sharon's blog for ALL the details on this challenge and also don't forget to check out the samples the design team ladies have come up with. I've linked their sites for easy access. Show a little love and leave them a comment, I'm sure they will LOVE it!!!
Thanks for stopping by! It's always great to hear from you!!!

  2. Wow Darlene, you did a great job coloring the TK stamps. Your instructions on how you colored the images sounds like it is so easy to color them in. I have been contemplating getting a few of these stamps and keep holding back 'cause I think that I wouldn't do a good job with it. You may have just convinced me to give it a try. Take care my friend.
