While there are countless exciting products available for stamping, you can create beautiful cards with just a few necessary items. With simple layers and stamped images, your card will be a unique work of art. To start stamping DeNami-style, get started with our favorite basic supplies.
  • Onyx Black Versafine ink pad
  • ATG Tape Dispenser (glue stick or double stick tape will also work)
  • Quickie glue pen
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • And of course, your favorite DeNami stamps!

Cardstocks: This is your canvas. Cardstock will hold up well to the inking and coloring. Stamp on one layer of cardstock, then use another stamp on a new layer of cardstock. This is the simplest way to make an easy yet elegant card (click here for more on layered techniques). See below for some of our recommendations.

Ink Pads: For all around stamping, we love the Versafine line of ink pads, especially the Onyx Black ink pad. Quick-drying and waterproof, it is a perfect ink pad for virtually all your stamping needs. See below for some more recommendations.

ATG Tape Dispenser: Any adhesive will work to hold your cards together, but for serious stampers we highly recommend the ATG Tape Dispenser. This is a worthwhile investment, and the tape refills last for a long time.

Quickie Glue Pen: The DeNami Design secret weapon! More on this in the Finishing Touches section. Suffice it to say, your cards will truly sparkle when you use this.

Paper Trimmer: Because no one wants to try to cut out everything by hand! A must for quick and easy layers.

Scissors: Another basic but necessary tool. Sharp is better!

Markers: We love the rich, saturated colors a marker can bring to our images, but you may prefer colored pencils or watercolors. Choose your favorite color palettes to work with. Keep in mind your colored cardstocks, too.
