Tone on Tone Stamping and Ink Blending

I love simple and quick techniques. And techniques that don’t require a ton of supplies are the best, too. Today’s technique and card checks all of those boxes. It is simple, quick, and minimal supplies are needed. Be sure to watch the video tutorial down below for all the details!

The Technique

This technique is super simple. You need a stamp, a pigment ink pad, a dye ink pad, and some sort of ink blending tool. I started by stamping the large Buffalo Background stamp onto white cardstock with my pigment ink. Specifically, I used the Versafine Clair ink pad in Monarch.

Then, after giving the ink a bit of time dry, I ink blended over the top with a dye ink in a similar color. I used the Pixie Dust ink pad from Catherine Pooler and an Amazon make up blending brush. And that’s the technique! It’s really that simple!

Finishing the Handmade Card

To finish this card all I did was add a simple flag banner with the Happy Birthday sentiment on it.

And because it was so simple I decided to finish the inside of this card, too. I added a longer birthday sentiment along with the Buffalo Background along the bottom of the card base!


I hope you all enjoyed a look at this super simple cardmaking technique! If you are interested in any of the supplies I used, you can find them all listed and linked down below. Until next time, happy crafting!!
