Hello my stamping friends.  Are you ready to see how to keep it simple in card making?  I have 4 different cards to share, each using different stamps but the principle is the same–keep it simple! These cards fall into my SIP style of cards (Stamps, Ink & Paper)–basic supplies that give you fabulous DIY cards!


The one thing that is the same across all 4 cards are these adorable Scalloped Notecards.  They come in a package with all 4 colors.  When I starting creating today, I just cut a stack of Whisper White card stock that was 4 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ and started grabbing different stamp sets and colors.  My goal was to use big bold images that did not require any coloring.

Keep It Simple in Card Making

The video will give you lots of tips for all 4 cards and how you can combine different stamp sets to get the look you want.

For this card I used the Genuine Gems stamp set and Thoughtful Blooms, which is no longer available because it was a freebie during Sale-a-bration.  But if you want to make this card you could use any little bold flower.

And there you go…..4 quick and easy Thank You cards.  The basic idea is just grab some stamps and bolder greetings.  Whether you want birthday cards, thank you cards, or any others….keep them simple and have fun making them.  And then, don’t forget to brighten someones day by mailing them a card!!!
