Stampin’ Up! likes to promote the #simplestamping, or stamping for beginners.  I love the look that simple stamping gives.  It is not “PLAIN”.  The simple stamping is more of limited product use, like a new stamper would have in their craft space.

Today’s card is a #simplestamping, but I do not think it is plain at all.  I hope you will give this one a CASE and see what you come up with.


#simplestamping, Dandelion Wishes, Jackie Beers, Simply Scored, Stampin' Up!


I love this card and how elegant it looks.  With a rhinestone in the center of the dandelion, it would be perfect.  But I wanted to stay with the definition of the simple stamping, which is Stamp, Paper, and Ink.

I used my Simply Scored to do the scoring around the centerpiece.  You can use the new Paper Trimmer and get the same results.  The score blade on the new trimmer is a wheel instead of a blade as the old trimmer had.  It scores much deeper and would be a great double use of the trimmer.  I used the Simply Scored before I thought of the new trimmer.  I did try with the trimmer and it worked perfectly.

The only thing the centerpiece has that is not just stamped and layered is that it is raised using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Little Tip:  I always place one in the center of a piece like this to keep the center from sagging. You don’t even have to remove the backing to stick the center one, just use it as a dimension.

Thank you for stopping by today!!
