Simple Incredible Like you

December 27, 2018

When we were are our Onstage Local event in November, Stampin’ Up! issued a challenge to try more simple stamping.  Now this is harder than you think to do once you have been stamping for a while.  But I thought about the idea behind simple stamping – to showcase Stampin’ Up!’s wonderful products to new, beginner stampers.   The first thing you need is something to stamp on and our note cards with envelopes are a great starting point for a new stamper.  You get 20 pre-scored cards and envelopes in the pack at a really good price.  So I created both of the cards I am sharing with you today on note cards.    I am excited to be sharing a stamp set that is being released in the Occasions Catalogue and will be available for purchase on the 3rd January.  For the first card, I stamped the striped image from the Incredible Like You stamp set using Daffodil Delight ink.  I did use a post-it-note to cover the striped image before stamping the flower and leaves.  The flower is stamped using Blushing Bride ink and Calypso Coral ink.  I stamp the darkest colour first as it makes it easier to add the lighter solid image exactly where you want it.  I stamped the solid leaf using Mint Macaron ink and the detailed leaf image using Pear Pizzazz ink.  I removed the post it note and stamped the greeting from the same stamp set using Pear Pizzazz ink.  I also decorated the envelope in the same manner.  Because it is a note card, I didn’t add any stamping to the inside of the card.  Simple enough and it doesn’t take too many supplies.

For the second card, I used post-it- notes to mask across the card on an angle.  I stamped the flower and leaves using the same inks as the first card.  I removed the post-it-notes, rotated the card 180 degrees and attached the post-it-notes again.  Once more I stamped the flower and leaves using the same inks as for the first card.  To make this work and keep it simple I use my grid paper to align the card and I mark the positions for the edges of the post-it-notes.  This makes it simple to leave about a 1″ gap between the stamped flowers by moving the card downwards from the top position to add the post-it-notes the second time.  Anyway once the stamping is done, I removed the post-it-notes and stamped the greeting from the Incredible Like You stamp set using Pear Pizzazz ink.  I also decorated the envelope for this card to match.

What do you think, have I created simple stamping or are there too many colours for a beginner stamper?  I’d love to know what you think.

bye for now,

Kris
