"Try It" Tuesday!

I am taking the great alliterative "Try It Tuesday" idea from my friend, Julie Davison, and posting my fun new technique! Take blue painter's tape (use this because it doesn't stick to the paper) and then push it, sticky side down, into your ink pad. Then, lay it on your paper, and "voila," beautiful straight lines! Here are a few cards I came up with using this method:
These two cards use a "Simply Sent Kit" where the cards come with shiny embossed lines, so the ink resists. I love these simply sent kits because they come with so many fun accessories. This particular kit comes with the following:
