Welcome to our August Team Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Simple Stamping, so I took that to heart and went back to the basics of Stamps, Ink and Paper!
I have to projects to show you, but you can do with literally any stamp set. I did find that lighter ink colors work best for the background as even the two light colors I chose, gave some great color.
EVERLASTING BEAUTY Stamp Set
The blue is Balmy Blue, ink and card stock. I used Stampin' Up! acrylic Block D to mount my image on so I used Block D to create the background. I just inked the whole block with my ink pad and stamped it onto my white paper.
I do have to say... definitely use our Foam Mat when stamping the inked block onto your paper.
COFFEE WITH FRIENDS stamp set
For this one, I turned the direction of my card and added a mat layer of card stock, which is Petal Pink. Petal Pink is also what I inked Block E with to create the background. I like how this one filled up a lot of the white card stock. The card base is the New In Color Moody Mauve. It is such a great color.
See.... I told you, can not get more basic and Simple than that. Now, you can always bling up your card, add some ribbon, or do some fussy cutting of images, but a handmade card is always appreciated, no matter what it looks like.
I hope you like my projects but....
