Simple Stamping for the AWHT Blog Hop

Simple Stamping Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring Simple Stamping, which means our projects feature only paper, stamps and ink. It’s a great way to create a quick and easy card for new stampers or for when you need a card at short notice. These projects highlight how Stampin’ Up! ink, paper and card stock coordinates perfectly.

If you would like a copy of the 2019 – 2020 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Christina Barnes. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

Card 1: This doesn’t have a lot of stamping, just the one sentiment stamped onto vellum, but it showcases some of the stunning Designer papers Stampin’ Up! produce. Just one piece of DSP cut twice evenly and glued to the card. A very simple way to use stamps, ink & paper!

Card 2: created using the Clear Stamp Block ‘E’ as a stamp, pressing it directly onto the stamp pad. I used Daffodil Delight in the centre and then added Balmy Blue at one end and Pear Pizzazz at the other. Then I spritzed it with some water before stamping the block directly onto the Shimmery White card.

While waiting for this to dry, go ahead and fold your Pear Pizzazz card base in half and add a layer of Basic Black card. Now that the ink has dried, stamp the branch & flowers (Colourful Seasons stamp set) and the girl on the swing and sentiment (Silhouette Scenes stamp set) all in Memento Black ink. Glue this layer to the card.

Don’t you just love swinging on a swing? This was one of my “perfect places to be” when I was a kid!!!

Card 3: uses the gorgeous stamp sets, Beautiful FriendshipI had a piece of paper in the shape of an oval sitting on my desk, so I placed it in the centre of the card and stamped the floral images around it, creating that central focus point.

Then I stamped the sentiment using the new Kindness & Compassion stamp set.

Cards 4&5: are some Thank you cards for my daughter’s netball coaches. Their team are called the ‘Roses’, so I thought Beautiful Friendship was the perfect stamp set to use. The images are stamped in Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Purple Posy, Granny Apple Green for the leaves, sentiment and card base.

I adore this one with the roses stamped in Mango Melody and Calypso Coral. The other colours are the same as the previous card. The sentiment is from the

It certainly was a challenge to create SIP (stamps, ink & paper) cards, but they can be just as effective! Why don’t you give them a go?!!!

  1. All your cards are gorgeous Kate, you’ve been very busy. I especially love your second card with the use of ink on the block the colours are so soft.

  2. Lovely cards Kate, and I’m particularly taken with the first one because I love that DSP – it’s so good you could team it with #simplystamping
