Grab your stamps and ink and get ready for me to show you 4 simple greeting cards + how to decorate the envelopes so that they coordinate!

Now, some of you may be asking SIP Cards???  What is that?  If you are new to following me, you will soon learn that I am all about making quick and easy cards and one way to do that is with my SIP METHOD–stamps, ink and paper.  That’s all you truly need to make pretty greeting cards.  I think sometimes we get so wrapped up in “all the stuff” that we forget we can do a lot with a little!

These 4 simple greeting cards are perfect for many ‘every day’ occasions.

Today I am featuring 4 simple cards that I made with the SIP Method using the Stampin’ Up! Rare Blessings Stamp set.  This stamp set really caught my eye in the catalog, but mainly for the greetings in it.  I wasn’t in the mood to spend a lot of time coloring, so I decided on monochromatic (+ Black) cards.  I love adding black because it really makes everything pop!
