Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring Simple Stamping, which means our projects feature only paper, stamps and ink.
It’s a great way to create a quick and easy card for new stampers or for when you need a card at short notice. These projects highlight how Stampin’ Up! ink, paper and card stock coordinates perfectly.
If you would like a copy of the 2019 – 2020 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.
My cards all feature the stunning Silhouette Scenes stamp stamped on a range of Designer Series Papers. I love how the DSP does all the heavy lifting for me, creating instant backgrounds to match the stamp and the sentiment.
The “together is the perfect place to be” card was inspired by this style of gorgeous photo. The long exposure of the photo and the rain makes the city lights look like blurs of paint.
Don’t you think this design from the Follow Your Art DSP has a similar feel?
I next went in search of some paper to match the child with the binoculars who is looking towards the future and hopefully a life full of possibilities and adventure.
This paper from the Come Sail Away DSP was the perfect match, with its finely detailed map image.
I was now on a roll as the one card quickly morphed into four cards, but when card making is this quick and easy thanks to simple stamping and DSP I just had to go with the flow.
The little girl on the swing card was CASED from the card on page 133 of the Annual Catalogue. I couldn’t use the tree branch die for a simple stamping card but I think the placement of the sentiment is just as effective. The DSP is from the See a Silhouette DSP pack.
My final card uses another piece of DSP from the Follow Your Art DSP – this one looks like a cloudy sky. I also stamped a few clouds and hot air balloons from the Above the Clouds stamp set.
This really is simple stamping at its best, using just one ink pad and one stamp set (for 3 out of the 4 cards) to achieve such a variety of cards.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Tina Gillespie.
