I have made a #simplestamping card to share today.  This is a challenge that Sara Douglass made at our November OnStage to share more cards for the beginner stamper or those with limited supplies.  I really love the idea.  These cards are the kind I really enjoy making.  I think of the #simplestamping as a basic card that can then be “stepped up” by just adding a few embellishments or add layers and it is a more involved card.  It makes me go back to when I first began stamping.


Little Twinkle, 146452

I used Thick Whisper White card stock as the base of my card and two ink pads.  The square in the center is done by using the Clear Block D as a stamp.  I just placed the Clear Block on the Balmy Blue Ink Pad and then stamped it onto the card stock.  The star backgrounds are also stamped with the Balmy Blue.  The star and sentiment are stamped with Pacific Point.  I fussy cut, although it was very simple cutting, the star and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensional to raise it.  I added the Metallic Pearls for just a touch of bling.

Next week I will show a Stepped Up version of this same card.  I hope you will try some SimpleStamping and share your projects.

I know I sound like a broken record, but remember that Sale-A-Bration ends on the 31st!!
