How To Use White Ink For Card Making

Just Stamp It

This is pretty simple – just stamp with it. You won’t want to use white cardstock (!!) so choose another color of cardstock and stamp on it!

Repeat Stamp It

Use your stamping platform to stamp several times in exactly the same place for a brighter white.

Stamp White, Then Stamp On Top With Color

You’ll need your stamping platform for this technique too. Stamp with white and let it dry. Then stamp directly over the top with the color of your choice. This is such a fun way to stamp on colored cardstock but still get a pretty image.

Shadow Stamp

For this one, stamp your images with white and let them dry. Then stamp slightly off from the first stamp (don’t use your stamping platform for this) using a color.
