Using different coloured inks onto plain card can really bring some colour and texture to your card.

You will need:

You will also need:

  • Flower Stamps (Uniquely Creative)
  • Bunny Stamps (Uniquely Creative)
  • Happy Birthday Stamp (Uniquely Creative)
  • Pigment Inks (Blue, Black, Purple)
  • Sponge
  • White Paint
  • Copic Markers
  • White Embossing Powder (WOW)
  • Heat Gun
  • Sequins


To make the card base I trimmed my card base using Blu Navy Nettuno Linen Effect Card 280gsm to 4 1/8" X 5 7/8". I then trimmed down a smaller piece of card using White Card Super Smooth 250gsm for my card panel. I also stamped my images onto a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and coloured them in. I then trimmed the images out and placed aside.

To ink blend the background I picked up the inks with a sponge and started working on the edges and slowly blended the colours to the middle. I then added some splashes of white paint. Once this was dry I adhered this to my card using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then adhered the coloured images to the card using some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then used a piece of Black Plain Card 240gsm to heat emboss the sentiment. Trim this down and adhere to your card.

To finish off the card I adhered some sequins using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

Your card is now complete.
