Did you know you can get card layering with ink that results in a BEAUTIFUL greeting card? I love this stamping technique! Grab your favorite Stampin’ Up! ink pads and get creative!

Sometimes you just have to think outside the box. I tend to layer my cards with cardstock but I was inspired by a card I received from Stampin’ Up’s co-founder Shelli Gardner. She has a real eye for vintage AND layering with stamped images. This card layering idea was so unique. I want to share a CASE of her card and show you how easy it really is to layer stamped images to give your cards depth and beauty.

 What do you think of this card layering with ink? Is it a technique you would try? What stamps would YOU use? Let me know! 


A common question I get asked is “Where do you find your inspiration?” Well, truth be told, everywhere, but I want to tell you there is nothing wrong with CASing a card. What is CASing? It stands for COPY AND SHARE. Today’s card by Shelli was just gorgeous. I struggle with vintage so I just CASED her card. I changed the sentiment but that was it. Is there anything wrong with CASing? Nope, not at all. It’s all inspiring!
