Default What color paper...

are most of your images stamped on? White makes the most sense to me, but maybe I'm completely missing something?

What do you do?


TIA, Lisa

White or Vanilla, occasionally another neutral but not too often. I use coloured cardstock for layers mostly, or punching out embellishments like butterflies or flowers.

I usually stamp images on white cardstock, and color them. I make card fronts and attach them to white card bases, and only use colored paper for layers and embellishments.

Almost 100% white but I might make a sponged background on it before I add anything to it. Almost always use some kind of colored or designer paper to trim the final product.

Almost always white or ivory cardstock but I also like heat embossing onto dark cardstock.

Normally I only stamp on white, although always have either layers of contrasting colors or use a color for the base of the card.

Most of the time white and ivory but I have done black and other colors for sure.

Suppose I want a blue and silver card. Instead of using 2 inks on white, I might use silver ink on blue paper. You just have to remember if the color is dark, use a liner inside you can write on.


Great way to use up paper if you are overloaded! You can do solid stamps and emboss them if you want to get a little fancy.

Usually white for me. Unless I'm going for a specific look, like colored pencil on tanned paper etc.

On the Easter cards I've been making I used pastel colors to stamp on. Colored then with pencils plus markers. Used patterned paper for layering plus black.

Like using white or a light gray marbled paper I found but then I don't always know how to make/finish the background. It seems to look like something's missing.

Usually white, but on occasion I stamp on colored card stock. I did a wedding set recently & stamped on aqua; Mostly the only white piece was as piece of water color paper & I just painted an aqua strip across it.
You can find it here:
Because of Love by TLady - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
Three of the sunflowers were colored on white card stock, cut out & popped up on dimensionals.
But when you stamp on colored card stock, you want to put down a light layer of white so the color shows up better. I used a white colored pencil. I also added white accents with a white signo pen.
I used the girls invitation to design my cards on this occasion. I was tickled to find out from our son that the colors & EVERYTHING were right on with what she did!

It's white, cream, kraft & black for me in that order of preference. Maybe stamp on colored paper occasionally. I usually use pre-made cards/envelopes and purchase them in packets. I used colored papers as layers.

Mostly white, cream or kraft, but I have been known to use black or navy with a white or metallic image embossed on it for the focal point.
