One of the reasons why crafters flock to the bookshelves to snatch up the newest issue of Take Ten is the abundance of project samples that provide endless techniques and ideas for unique stamped cards. Another reason is that each card takes less than ten minutes to whip up, allowing you to churn out multiple cards in preparation for graduations, birthdays, and holidays in a timely fashion, year-round.
Want a third reason to love this publication from the creators of The Stampers’ Sampler? When you subscribe to Take Ten, we will ship you a free sheet of Clearly Impressed stamps that include a vintage ledger, handwritten scripts, French phrases, a couple bars of sheet music, and classic French postal seals. Our Shoppe Manager demonstrates how you can incorporate this versatile set of ephemera images into quick and easy cards that you can make in ten minutes or less.
Divine Twine – Cotton Candy
StazOn Ink – Jet Black
To give your cards a bit of shabby-chic flair, tear the edge of one paper to create texture. Layer coordinating papers on top of each other, adhering with double-sided tape. Stamp desired images onto papers using StazOn ink. Don’t worry if the images come out light, as that will just add to the vintage look. Finish off your projects by wrapping twine around the cards like a package, and tie off with a bow. Create a few more cards, and you’ll have quite a collection of beautiful notes the next time you want to send a sweet sentiment!
