Rooted in Nature #simplestamping

Are you a beginning stamper with just a few supplies? Do you love the art and craft of rubber stamping but just don’t have a lot of time? Are you short of space and can only store limited stamps? Do you need a quick and easy, clean and simple card?

What is #simplestamping?

Stampin’ Up!’s #simplestamping is for you! It focuses on using just rubber stamps, ink, and paper to create quick, easy, and cute handmade greeting cards.

Each month, Stampin’ Up! issues demonstrators a challenge. This month: Employ the #simplestamping technique with your favorite retiring product in a thank-you card format.

I have a lot of favorites retiring from Stampin’ Up’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. (A new catalog debuts May 4. To make room for new goodies, some things have to go.) But one I’ve used a lot is Rooted in Nature. It includes  a host of tree and nature images and features versatile sentiments.

(To browse the list of retiring items and those discounted, click here and then click on Specials and Last Chance Product List.)

Rooted in Nature

This stamp set is slated to retire; it’s not available after May 3 (or while supplies last). Enjoy these card samples. They go together quickly, especially when using Stampin’ Up!’s Very Vanilla Notecards and Envelopes. Already cut and scored, you receive 20 cards and envelopes for $7. Just add stamps, ink, and paper.

For these cards, I used:

  • Pieces from the In Good Taste 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. I love the wood grain designs featured on some of the sheets.
  • Early Espresso ink and card stock and Garden Green ink and card stock
  • Very Vanilla Notecards and Envelopes

With this technique, you can make a set of cards quickly and easily. Send them out or package them up and give them as gifts.

Be sure to view the video below (a Facebook live replay) to see how these cards go together.

To see a more intricate card using this stamp set and the coordinating Nature’s Root Dies, see this post.

August 2020 #simplestamping Challenge

Here’s a cute card for Stampin’ Up!’s August 2020 #simplestamping challenge.

August 2020 #simplestamping challenge

Each month, Stampin’ Up! issues a new #simplestamping challenge. This month’s challenge: create a card using just rubber stamps, ink, paper, and Designer Series Paper with a whimsical or spooky theme. I chose the whimsical theme.

August 2020 #simplestamping Challenge

The card features the Cute Fruit stamp set. Find it in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Beginner Brochure.

This brochure contains stamp sets and a plethora of project ideas for those new to the rubber stamping experience. It shows you don’t need to have a huge collection of products to start learning to make handmade greeting cards with rubber stamps. Sometimes, simpler is better. I tend to be a clean and simple stamper anyway.

These images call to me. They are fun and easy to use.However, I think any crafter will find it fun to create cards and projects with this cute offering.

Stampin' Up! Cute Fruit Stamp Set

In addition to the Cute Fruit stamp set pictured above, I used the 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack. This stack contains 40 6 x 6 sheets of all-occasion designs, two double-sided designs in five In Colors. The colors include: Bumble Bee, Cinnamon Cinder, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, and Misty Moonlight. As you can see, I used different strips of the Bumble Bee and Just Jade pieces as well as the coordinating In Color ink colors.

This card is super easy to create and just as much fun to send. The “smile” sentiment lends itself to just about everything.
