It’s Tuesday… one more day before the launch of the Sudsol Blog tour! The Tour theme is Clean and Simple or Demonstrate-able Cards… and I’m going to share several cards and a new technique too! But that’s for tomorrow’s blog post, LOL!

Today, I’m sharing another clean and simple card along with a by request recipe on how I made the pasta dish which accompanied yesterday’s Green Pot Chicken Recipe.Today’s card is uses two stamp sets and the sentiment was intentionally left off… so I can add it later when needed. Sometimes I make a bunch of blank cards and “card candy” so that the gift recipient (or I, myself) can add a sentiment as needed.The really fun part of today’s clean and simple card share was that it uses a simply scored board, and clear embossing powder. LOL, you could also use white… but clear is what was on my table at the time I decided to try my newest technique!
The technique was really quick and easy to do… although in my experimentation, I had to do do it a couple times before achieving consistency and success! LOL… the first time I stamped the butterflies too far apart so they were WAY out of the box formed by the Everything Eleanor stamp image! So.. I’m going to share a quick tutorial on how to do this… along with today’s tips for paper crafters and Success!
Technique: Simply Scored and New Ink Pads!
- Cut Whisper White (WW) Card Stock to desired size… for today’s simply scored ink technique, my WW card stock was cut 3.75” x 5”.
- Place long edge against top rail on your simply scored board and score in 3/8” and 1/8” intervals for the length of the card piece. (I.E. 3/8”, 1/2”, 7/8”, 1”, 1-3/8”, 1-1/2” etc.)
- Turn card stock 90 degrees and repeat step 2.
- Turn on heat tool to pre-heat.
- Ink large and small butterfly images using versa mark ink and stamp onto the mountain side of scored card stock (the side with the bumps.)
- Today’s Tips for Paper Crafters:
- If you are using Clear Mount stamps, mount both butterfly images onto one block, comparing against the surface of the Everything Eleanor image to ensure both butterflies will fall within the inked area.
- If you are using Wood Mount Stamps, stamp an extra image from Everything Eleanor onto a scrap of card stock. Cut out the center, stamped image reserving the frame to use as a template for fitting your versa mark inked stamps into.
Now you’re done.. easy peasy, quick and easy!
