Each month, Stampin’ Up! issues a #simplestamping challenge to its demonstrators worldwide. We go back to the basics and focus on creating a card with just rubber stamps, ink, and paper. This month, we add an extra element: ribbon.
Although I need a few more Christmas cards, I also use a lot of thank you cards this time of year. I’ve received a number of heartfelt gifts, and I want the givers to understand how much I appreciate them thinking of me.
Evergreen Elegance #simplestamping
I turned to #simplestamping to help me create s stack of cards I can have handy and get in the mail right away. This card uses:
- Evergreen Elegance Cling Stamp Set found in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog
- Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set (sentiment) also found in the Annual Catalog
- Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog
This layout features three strips of Designer Series Paper each measuring 5 1/4 inches by 1 4/ inches. I spaced them equal distance apart on the Soft Succulent card base. Imagine creating a host of different backgrounds with Stampin’ Up!’s huge array of patterned papers.
The white stamped piece measures 2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, and the Evening Evergreen layer measures 2 1/4 inches by 3 1/2 inches. I topped it off with a bow created with the Soft Succulent 3/8 inch Open Weave Ribbon.
As I’ve said before, I’m a clean and simple stamper and this basic layout and design really appeals to me. It will be easy to create a stack in a short time.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’ve enjoyed my #simplestamping project.
