This was the challenge given to us by Stampin’ Up!® for January #simplestamping

No embossing folders, no ribbons, no embellishments aaaah – this can get a bit tricky for me. I just want to add layers and detail but the whole idea of the #simplestamping challenge is to get everyone involved in this fun activity of stamping and enjoy the creative outlet it provides. It is so much fun and doesn’t have to be time consuming to get fabulous results.

I used to be so afraid of stamps and ink pads until I learned how to do it and it all started with simple projects. Simple doesn’t have to be boring and when you mix our stamps and inks with our gorgeous Designer Series Paper, simple cardmaking still produces beautiful projects. 

This card will take you a few minutes to create.  Cover the entire card base with the All My Love DSP. There are lovely sheets of flowers and hearts in this pack and I especially love this sheet. 

Stamp the hearts right along the strip of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry. Punch out the Pretty Label punch from Mint Macaron cardstock, cut in half and attach behind the Whisper White panel. Adhere this to the card base.

My first #simplestamping project completed. It took me out of my comfort zone and I’m glad I gave it a go. Watch out for more #simplestamping projects in the next few months. Projects focusing on stamps, ink and paper.
