Simple Stamping

Simple Stamping is the best way for a brand new beginner or for an experienced stamper who just wants to smash out several cards at a time.

I was inspired by Stamping with Jamie for my card.

Let me walk you through what you’ll need to create a simple stamped card.

Card requirements for Simple Stamping

  • Cardbase – I used Thick Basic White. I usually score my cardstock ½ on the short side and then cut ½ on the long side
  • Matte – I used Basic White and cut it ¼” smaller than the front of the cardbase
  • Three complimentary colours on the colour wheel.
  • For this example -I used Misty Moonlight, Azure Afternoon and Balmy Blue
  • A stamp that’s quite big and is a focal point -I used Simply Zinnias
  • A matching pen for the flecks of ink -I used Misty Moonlight
  • Circles for your stencil ( I just use two circle punches of different sizes)
  • Blending brush

How to create your card

  • Using your larger circle stencil -blend the medium shade of ink to the top left side of the card
  • Using your smaller circle stencil -blend the lightest shade of ink at an angle to the circle above
  • Using your darkest ink -ink up your focal stamp and stamp it over the two blended circles
  • Stamp a sentiment if you choose
  • Flick some ink with the matching dark ink (optional)
  • Adhere this using dimensionals onto your card front

And there you have it! Such an easy card to create!

I made this short video last week showing you how to put this card together.

You will also see some other colour samples that I used.

The Simply Zinnia stamp set is very versatile for other projects.

Be sure to check out some of my other projects using the same stamp set.

Thank you for reading and I hope you’ve been inspired to try out simple stamping.

Happy crafting!
