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

Love your tip about adding the black mat…it really does make those colors pop!
I’m so glad that tip was helpful for you! Thanks for watching.
I love all that you share! It is souch fun to stamp using your ideas. I do have a hard time seeing your videos with the large host code and the light green strip. Could they be a bit smaller?
I’m glad you like the cards I share Donna! I’m not sure exactly what you’re talking about because I don’t have the host code in my video. Are you talking about the banner of my website? If so you should just be able to scroll down on the page before you click to play the video. If you are watching on a phone or tablet try turning your device in landscape view and that may help but some principle there too…scroll down before you hit the play button or click the word “youtube’ in the lower right corner of the video and that will take you to YouTube to watch and perhaps that will be easier for you.
