Splattered ink cards- When in Doubt Twirl & Do What Makes You Happy

Hello Crafters!

Last week I shared a Thank You card using Distress Stains.  Today, I would like to share two more cards using the stains but a different technique.

Both cards are using the new stamp set from Quietfire, Twist & Enjoy.  Talk about a fun set of stamps!
Twirl & Enjoy, Set of 3 Stamps - Mounted
To make the cards: three Distress Stains (Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw and Barn Door) were randomly dropped on a piece of white heavy card stock.  The result was a page full of the coolest splatters!  Then, one of the Spellbinders matting dies was used to cut out the rectangular pieces of card stock with splatters that I wanted to use on the card fronts.  Two of the sentiments from the stamp set were heat embossed near the splatters.  Here is a close up of the When in Doubt Twirl stamped sentiment:
The fronts were matted on black card stock and mounted on 4.25 x 5.5 cards.  Below is another blotted card using the Do What Makes You Happy stamp:
I like the simplicity of the cards and pop of the colors.  Plus, it is always a good time to have inky fingers!  Playing with inks, stamps and paper is one thing that does make me happy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
