Simple & Easy 2-Step Stamping Cards

Simple & Easy 2-Step Stamping is a fun technique where just a few supplies are needed.  Stamps, ink, & paper.  It’s easy to line up the solid images in the stamped outline image.  Having the solid images as separate parts to add color inside the outline image makes it a simple process to bring it to life.

Look at all these color combinations with the Dandy Designs Sale-a-bration 2023 Designer Series Paper.  This paper can be earned starting January 5th with any $100 purchase.
