You can make beautiful Autumn greeting cards with the SIP Method and it can be easy too. All you need are stamps, ink, and paper to get started. I have a basic SIP card (stamps, ink & paper) AND a stepped up version. The ‘Beautiful Autumn’ stamp set by Stampin’ Up! makes stamping so simple!

If you are wondering  what  a SIP card is –it’s a greeting card that uses only STAMPS, INK & PAPER.  You don’t need all the “extra stuff” to make beautiful autumn greeting cards and these cards prove it! Simple stamping at its’ best!  

SIP cards are also great for beginners.  They are quick and easy, yet they use minimal supplies.  


The Beautiful Autumn stamp set has coordinating punches you can use too.  The punches add dimension but aren’t required for a SIP card. If you don’t have the punches just stamp!
