October Technique Blog Hop: Stamping on Cardstock

Stamping on cardstock is something that I do ALL the time, so I'm very excited to share so many fun ways you can stamp on cardstock along this month's technique blog hop!  (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Cat's blog.  From here, you'll visit Michelle Loncar's blog next.)

My first card features the OohLaLa Macrons stamp set and Thin Cuts.  I stamped the images with black ink on three different pieces of cardstock: Shortbread, Papaya, and Paprika.  I then fussy cut each one to adhere to a Thin Cut stack.  I used my TriBlend markers to color in little details, especially the "chocolate" filling. 

For the background, I used the light side of the Shortbread cardstock, then stamped You're Sweet in two rows with Shortbread, two rows with Papaya, two rows with Paprika, and one final row with Espresso.  (Next time I would start with the Espresso at the bottom and work my way up.)  A little Rose Gold shimmer trim and Autumn loose sequins finish off the card nicely.

My second card uses several different stamping techniques.  I started by random stamping the different gourds from the Pumpkin Spice Scrapbooking stamp set onto White Daisy cardstock.  To create the two-toned effect, I inked up the gourds in Papaya or Paprika, stamped them on scrap paper, and then rolled them back in the same color.  I also stamped the border stamp in Paprika on Paprika cardstock.

For the adorable sentiment (called "Eat, Drink, & Give Thanks"), I inked it first in Shortbread, then inked the top only in Papaya and the bottom only in Paprika, then stamped it on the 2" square.  I added some gold Stickles to the sentiment, Gold shimmer trim to the cardstock band, and a few more Autumn loose sequins (adhered with Liquid Glass on both cards).

Thanks for letting me share some fun techniques to stamp on cardstock.  Please leave a comment before you continue the hop by click on her name to visit Michelle Loncar's blog next.  


  1. Love both cards. Your stamped backgrounds are really great.

  2. Your macarons! WOW! Love how you stamped the sentiment on the background and the additional color, on the cardstock, is wonderful!

  3. Great color combos! I don't remember seeing the macarons in those yet.

  4. Great background for your Macrons. The Macrons look good too.

  5. Love both cards, especially the Ooh La La Macarons card. Great coloring, and LOVE the backround stamping.

  6. Both your cards are awesome! I love the stamped background behind the macarons. I also love the random stamped gourds.
