Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters


Happy Monday to you all! I thought it would be fun to challenge you to use anything but black ink to stamp your images or sentiments...that's right, any other color ink except for black! Gina K. Designs has some amazing colors and thought it would be a good opportunity to get you to use some of those amazing colors!

The Challenge: create a card or project that has images and/or sentiments stamped with any other color ink but black. NO BLACK ink at all!

To kick start your creative juices, I designed a card and a set of tags. I'm also including an older card I've shared with you before but that is perfect for this challenge.

First up is a card using featuring Let it Snow desgined by Theresa Momber and stamped with Gina K. Desings Color Companions Blue Denim Ink and Gina K. Designs Color Companions White Pigment Ink.

Next up is a set of tags using Poster Board Christmas set by Rebecca Oehlers inked up with Gina K. Designs Color Companions White Pigment Ink.

Lastly is a card using the Cheers mini stamp set inked up with Gina K. Designs Color Companions Dark Chocolate ink.

Make sure you see the rules below before you get started.


All entries must be uploaded by Sunday, December 8 by 8 pm Central.  Please use the keyword: STV13MON48 in all caps in the tag section when you upload. 


Here is the Gallery: STV13MON48


Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!!!

Great challenge, Carolina, and love your cards.  Here's my card.  I really should make more as I'm so far behind on my Christmas cards and have a few birthdays this month too.....yikes!!!  I better get working.  Thanks for hosting our challenge and the inspiration.

What a wonderful challenge and your samples are as beautiful and inspiring as ever Carolina!!! Thank you so much :)

I found some ornaments I had done up earlier in the year so decided to make them into Christmas cards. HERE is my way of displaying the ornament on a card.

Thanks for this challenge. It is so easy just to reach for the black but I really enjoyed thinking about different combinations of colours. Great idea Caroline and here is my card:

Ahhh, Leslie thank you on all counts! You are so very sweet!

Okay, Carolina, your inspiration projects are awesome! Love everyone of them! On a separate note, not stamping-related at all, you should consider changing your profile pic here to the one you posted on FB with the fedora hat! It's awesome! :)

I just finished commenting on all the cards posted so far and just blown away by your creativity and your beautiful, beautiful cards!!! Thanks so much for sharing such beauties with all of us!
