Simple Stamping is Always in Style

This week, put away your embellishments and pull out your FREE Island Vibes Stamp Set only until Feb 28—it’s time for some simple stamping!
For our Thanks card, we stamped out the pineapple in Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake cardstock. We used the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Watercolor Pencils to fill in the pineapple and the leaves, then deepened the shadows and added depth with the Basic Gray Watercolor Pencil. The coloring may look intricate, but it’s so easy when you use the stamp as your guide for shading! Finally, we added a simple sentiment and voilà—a simple card for any occasion!
We used the marker-to-stamp technique to make our Diese Karte beweist: Du bist grandios card. To do this, we colored the plant with the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker, the pot with the Real Red marker, and then stamped! We repeated the process using the Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight markers. We then punched out the potted plants with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. So simple, but so cute!
To make our Je ne voulais pas attendre une occasion spéciale card, we used the stamping off technique. To do this, we stamped the leaves in Calypso Coral ink, then stamped above it without re-inking our stamp. We repeated this with the Daffodil Delight ink, resulting in a colorful pattern. To finish, we added our sentiment and a Baker’s Twine bow for texture.
If it’s been a while, try stamping simply and see what you can come up with!
