Gina K Designs Folk Filigree - Easy Stamped Card

Happy Wednesday, hope you are doing well!  It is sunny and warm today and I saw that I have one white crocus blooming.  I need to replant some crocuses and snowdrops since the moles, or some creature in nature, has eaten most of them up, but what I have is cheerful!

I have been stamping quite a bit this week and have one project to share.  Sometimes, I really like to use small stamps to create a project because I feel like it is taking me back to stamping roots, where you just have stamps and ink and a folded card. 

Simple and fun!

  I really just do enjoy stamping, so I don't even mind that I had to practice a layout or two before doing the final card.  Imperfect score lines were quickly done on a scoring board with a bone folder.

A tip, I did get some very small smudges of ink where they shouldn't be.  After it had all dried (since these are pigment inks) I took my Prismacolor Magic Rub white eraser over it and, by golly, it actually took up the extra ink!  I was very pleased.

Have a wonderful day!

Supplies: Gina K Designs Folk Filigree stamp set, Avery Elle Inkpads in Sugar Plum, Vino, Celery and Daisy

Beautiful card and thanks for the tip on removing unwanted smudges of ink. I might have to give that a try too! I always seem to be leaving unwanted splotches!

So glad to hear you have been stamping lots, I've got days off now and hope to get a little crafty, I haven't been very productive lately... LOVE your clean & simple wreath design, it's such a pretty combo of colours!

Your stamping is so pretty and I love your embossed framing.
The moles around here have totally ruined our yard over the winter there is so much dead grass where they have been plowing through, hope it comes back.
