Inking Techniques – 3 fun ways!


Today, I have a new video for you! In this video, I show you three fun ways to created a multi-tone look with solid stamps, ink pads and more!

Here are the three cards from the video:

In my first card, I used a Moonlit Fog ink pad along with a Tombow Marker, number 606 and 636 in my second sample.

I used the thumping technique to create this two-toned look. I really love this color combo!

In my second project, I used Jelly Bean Green along with a Tranquil Teal Ink Cube. I did a bouncing technique on this one and I really love the way it turned out.

And for my final card, I used a Bubblegum Pink ink pad and the Dark Pink Zig Clean Color Brush Marker along with a smooshing technique. I hardly ever use pink and I am not sure why? This color combo is so bright and fun!



Card bases- 4 1/4″ X 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded in half

Black Onyx layers- 3 7/8″ X 5 1/8″

White layers- 3 3/4″ X 5″


Supplies used:

Stamps- A Big Hello, (from the Card Kit) Hugs, Lovely Words

Ink- Black Onyx, Bubblegum Pink, Jelly Bean Green, Tranquil Teal, Moonlit Fog, VersaMark (GKD embossing ink will work too, I just didn’t have mine handy)

Markers- Tombo 606 and 636, Zig Real Brush Dark Pink

Dies- Hugs

Card Stock- Bubblegum Pink, Jelly Bean Green, Moonlit Fog, Black Onxy, White Layering

Embossing- Embossing Magic Pad, Fine Detail Clear Powder, Embossing Magic Pad

Sequins- Disco Ball, Emerald City

Crystalline Drops- Gun Mental

Misti, Tidy Towel

I hope you enjoyed this video and I would love to know which card you liked the best!

Make it a great day and Happy Stamping!

    Thank you for sharing. This is a great technique, especially for a person like me who does not color well.

    Beautiful cards Gina, I just love your style. Question – have you ever thought of creating a die that does that black panel? Maybe even the white and black panels? I’m kind of lazy and like the dies to do everything for me. I would just create a whole bunch of panels and then grab them when I actually get to the point of putting a card together. (If you saw my craft room you’d think I never actually get to that point.)

    Love the technique you used. Can the big hello flower stamp set be purchased without all the other items? Kia

      It will be available for purchase by itself in late March. 🙂

    I love this technique! It would be a good one for people who don’t like to color, but want some shading. Instead of using a paper towel, I use a piece of an old TEE Shirt. No lint and it washes out when it gets too dirty. I clean my stamps with it too. Love your products and videos.

    Hi Gina which adhesive runner do you use. I see only a dot runner on your website and I have always thought dot runners were not permanent. Thank you for taking the time for your answers. Love watching all your videos and have since you first started. You are amazing! Thanks for all your inspiration.
