Need the perfect solution for making simple stamped cards? I’ve got a lovely basic card plus stepped up versions that are also easy to DIY. These are perfect ideas for beginners, as well as “seasoned” card makers as I will also show how easy it is to STEP UP your simple cards!

Artistically Inked is the perfect stamp set for all occasions and creating fun, bold cards. Today I have 2 types of cards to share–SIP (stamps, ink & paper) as well as the STEPPED UP versions.

Simple stamped cards begin with rubber stamps that are easy to use like the Artistically Inked by Stampin' Up!

I just love the “watercolor look” of these stamps–especially the “blotch” stamp for the background. No more struggling trying to make a watercolor wash type background. Enjoy the video and post today. As always, I share many stamping tips as we make the cards.

I hope you enjoyed these fun simple cards. The whole idea of “SIP STAMPING” and then stepping it up shows that you don’t need a lot of products to make beautiful hand-made cards.

How Do You Make a Simple Stamped Card?

Let’s start with the SIP CARDS. These are made just using stamps, ink and paper.

Need a quick birthday card? Try these simple stamped cards design.

For these, I used the Stampin’ Up! Note Cards. The front of these cards is 5″ x 3 1/2″ and is the perfect size for these big bold stamps. You could add any greeting on them to make a card for any occasion.

Stepped Up Cards

Add a little card stock and cut out your images with the coordinating dies (or a scissors) and it’s so easy to step it up! These are still a SIP card because the only thing used is stamps, ink and paper!

These simple stamped cards are stepped up a little with a layer of black cardstock behind the stamped panel.

Card Measurements

  • Basic White Card Base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • White layer: 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Basic Black layer: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • Scrap of Basic White for cut out images
Whether your simple stamped cards are single layer stamped florals or layered with cardstock your cards will be beautiful!

See the difference that just a couple layers of card stock can make?
