When stampers talk about simple stamping (as in, #SimpleStamping), just what do we mean? As you might expect, examples are all over the place! I tend to confuse “clean and simple” with simple stamping, but of course a design can be simple and still time consuming to create (I had an example in today’s newsletter).
Here’s one idea, a card I created on the spur of the moment when I heard of the engagement of one of our stampers:
The color palette isn’t really simple, but I don’t think a card has to be monochromatic to be simple. The Big Shot work here is limited, and you could swap the scalloped mat for a plain one. The coloring is swipes of marker — using two colors for the leaves and two for the berries creates interest. The banner is trimmed by hand.
We were just finishing up one of the Jingle Jump sessions when I put this together. Most of the supplies were out for this JJ card:
I’d love to hear your opinions of simple stamping!
