Showcasing #simplestamping using Designer Series Paper.
Recently, Stampin’ Up! has focused on #simplestamping: the art of creating a handmade card with just rubber stamps, ink, and paper. After all, these provide the underpinnings of paper crafting. It allows us to focus on the basics of the craft, and we realize we can make beautiful projects with a handful of supplies. It’s a great place to start for beginning stampers, and it challenges seasoned stampers to step away from the extras.
Each month, Stampin’ Up! issues a #simplestamping challenge. For October, it calls for using rubber stamps, ink, paper, and ribbon with a thank you card.
Designer Series Paper Sale
I combined the challenge with the Designer Series Paper sale effective through October 31, 2020. Fifteen of Stampin’ Up!’s double-sided, patterned papers are 15 percent off. It includes selections from both the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. See the PDF here, or click on the photos at the end of the post to check them out and shop.
I love this card design because it showcases both sides of the paper. That’s often the most difficult part of crafting: choosing which side to use! Note: It uses the Playing with Patterns.
Here are a few cutting details. (Be sure to watch the video below showing how this design goes together. See other cards using the paper currently offered on the sale.)
- Card stock for the base: 5 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches, scored at 1 inch on the 5 1/4-inch side.
- A piece of patterned paper cut at 5 1/2 x 4.
- Complementary ribbon.
- A sentiment.
