Hi everyone! I am sharing something a little different today other than my normal card. Today I want to share these fun hand stamped recipe cards. These are perfect to pair along with your holiday baked goods, to give as a gift for a newlywed or new home owner, and so many other things! Be sure to watch the video tutorial down below to see exactly how to make them, and different ways you can make them your own! Plus so many tips and tricks as well!!
Some supplies used in this video were sent to me free of charge for design purposes. I only ever design for companies I can stand behind 100%! To see who I currently or have previously designed for, head HERE.
These recipe cards are stamped using Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps stamps. They are high quality red rubber stamps and you know each time you stamp them it’s going to turn out! Even with these larger stamps, they stamp perfectly each time! To stamp the images I used black dye ink and heavy weight white cardstock cut down to 4″ x 5.25″.
You can easily stamp these with an acrylic block or by laying them on their backs and pressing the paper on top, but because I was stamping so many of them I used my stamp positioner. This is such a helpful tool, especially when stamping multiples and larger images! I used my Original MISTI, but these will also fit into the Mini MISTI, too.
When I was stamping I used a dye ink. This allowed the ink to dry super fast, so smudging wasn’t a problem. I also used a dye ink that would play nicely with my colored pencils. I used colored pencils to color in the images first of all because it’s fast. Second, it won’t bleed through to the back or the cardstock of bleed if it gets splashed with anything wet!
One last suggestion. If you are giving these as a gift and leaving the cards blank, obviously you won’t want to laminate them. However, if you fill any of the recipes in I would highly suggest laminating them when you are done. This will seal in your handwriting and protect the cards from regular kitchen mishaps!
I hope you all enjoyed a look at these simple DIY hand stamped recipe cards. They are so easy to make and come together very quickly. They are great to pair with your baked goodies or to give as a quick and simple gift!
