How to make Stamped in Line Card

How to make Stamped in Line Card

“Using your Rubber Stamps and contrasting ink colours can be fun and give you great results, add some craft masking tape (or Washi Tape) and you can create your own arty masterpiece. Advanced crafters could really add their own spin on this idea, and use texture paste and stencils to bring Mixed Media effects to the card.” - Ann-marie Vaux

You will need:

  • 6x6inch white blank card base
  • Extra white card and white stamping card
  • Selection of Mini Distress Inks – 3 or 4 colours, can match or contrast, I opted for contrast
  • Blending tools for the Distress Ink
  • Small rubber stamp icons of images
  • Sentiment Stamps – this could be any
  • Black permanent ink pad
  • Craft Masking Tape or Washi Tape to use as a mask
  • Tape Runner or Adhesive tape
  • 3D foam
  • Scissors & Paper trimmer

Time to Make: Approx 20 min

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Step-by-step:

  1. Origami Bag

    Cut 2 layers of white cardstock approx 5.75inches x 5.75inches and 5inches x 5inches for the base layer of the card. Add 3D foam to the back of the larger layer, and attach to the card front, set aside the smaller layer for the next step. * The smaller layer of the 2 is going to be the layer you stamp on, this could be cut from stamping cardstock and the larger layer could be cut from general white cardstock.

  2. Origami Bag

    Using the Craft Masking Tape or Washi Tape, start by adding a strip across one edge of the stamping layer.

  3. Origami Bag

    Then add a Craft Masking Tape or Washi Tape to the opposite edge on the stamping card, then measure the width of the tape and add another strip with a gap between the rows both top and bottom. This will leave a larger gap in the middle as well as 2 uncovered strips on the layer.

  4. Origami Bag

    Start blending 1 colour of ink into the strips at either side of the card layer, just to the top of the strips and then taking the actual mini Ink pad, use the whole thing as a stamp, by turning upside down and using as it is, by adding a row of colour across the middle of the card.

  5. Origami Bag

    Next take a second colour and blend to the opposite edges of the strips on the layer, use a contrasting colour for dramatic effect or use a matching colour for a smooth blend. Then using the same technique for the row of colour in the card center, use the ink pad again in the center to add more colour and starting to create a pattern. I used a diamond style pattern but you could try anything.

  6. Origami Bag

    Add other 1 or 2 colours in the center of the card, using the ink pad as the stamp to fill in the blank sections of the pattern you are creating.

  7. Origami Bag

    Taking the 1st of your small stamps, stamp using permanent Black Ink into the ink blended strips at the top and the bottom of the layer.

  8. Origami Bag

    Continue stamping in the strips with other small stamps.

  9. Origami Bag

    Using the sentiment stamps you have chosen for the card, using black permanent ink, add the stamped sentiments to the center of the card over the ink pad pattern.

  10. Origami Bag

    Start removing the Craft Masking Tape or Washi Tape from the layer.

  11. Origami Bag

    Attach the layer using 3D foam to the card front.

  12. Origami Bag

    The finished card.
