Hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop! Each month a few Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world come together to inspire! Currently, you’re visiting the blog of Kylie at Stampers Workshop in Australia! Thanks so much for hopping with us!
The theme for our May 2022 Blog Hop is Simple Stamping.
Simple stamping is one style that challenges me so much! In a way, I feel all my stamping is simple (unless I’m working with a specific technique). However, I know the style of simple stamping is generally considered to be more clean and simple, with more white space. I played around with a few ideas before deciding to do something as simple as I could in my own style!
For my card, I created a card base from Thick Basic White cardstock. I also cut a panel of Basic White cardstock for my main focal panel and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. While my machine was out I also die cut a circle from Vellum using the Stylish Shapes dies and three fern shapes out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Forever Flourishing dies set. When die-cutting the fern pieces, I added Adhesive Sheets to the back of the cardstock so that it was easy to layer the pieces.
Once all the die-cutting was done, I adhered it to the front of my card base. It was then I decided some gold speckles might look nice on the card so I inked up the dot stamp, from the Forever Fern stamp set, and stamped it on the card. I also stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of Basic White cardstock. Next, I gold-embossed all the stamped images. As I had already adhered the fern to the card, some of the embossing powder stuck to the edges where I hadn’t matched the layers perfectly. I could have tried to brush this off using a clean paintbrush but I actually really liked how it looked. A happy accident!
Here’s the card…
