Basic Stamping Techniques for Beginning Stampers

Cats on the Edge is a very simple card, drawing on very basic stamping techniques.  This is the kind of card that is PERFECT for a beginner stamper to do!  And, since there is no coloring involved, it is also a super quick card to make. The same Art Dauber technique used in my previous blog post is also used here to create a cheerful background.  

Both the E7983 Black Cats and E7840 Web Border are from my stamp line with Impression Obsession Rubber Stamps.  Clearsnap's Colorbox®️ Premium Dye ink pads (Tangerine, Grape, Licorice) are used, along with Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry®️ Paper Glue.

Simply stamp the Web Border on a white cardstock scrap in Grape; stamp the Black Cats over the border using Licorice. Punch rounded corners. Dab Tangerine around edges with an Art Dauber.  Cut an orange cardstock layer and dab Licorice around the edges.  Use Art Daubers to create the random colorful dots on the notecard.  Attach all the layers with Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry®️ Paper Glue.

Additional embellishments can be added as desired.  I just added a strip of coordinating ribbon but you could also add a small spider, stars or a phrase.  Just use your imagination!
