Stampin' Up! #simplestamping Challenge

This one had skipped my notice until the other day when I spotted it mentioned on the Stampin' Up! demonstrator site. Never mind me, I'm often late to the party.

Stampin' Up! is apparently running a monthly challenge to create a card with little more than cardstock and stamps. Keeping it simple and not over doing layers and embellishments.  Each month has a theme and for January 2019 it is Valentine's Day.  Supplies to be used are stamps, ink and paper and the bonus material or tool is a punch.

All you have to do is use those direction and make a card using current Stampin' Up! products and then share your card on social media with the #simplestamping. Stampin' Up! have their scouts out looking at entries and choose a number of entries to receive a little gift.

Has to be worth a try... for fun or freebies, doesn't matter which.

So I made this little Berry Burst number, with a Whisper White layer into which I punched a few hearts using the cute dog punch. I then popped a few more hearts out of Berry Burst cardstock and then stamped the heart from Happy Tails onto the Whisper White using the small stamp in Powder Pink ink. Then I stamped a sentiment from Part of My Story in Berry Burst onto the mat and then took the heart from Wood Words stamp set and using Powder Pink, stamped off twice I added some subtle lighter hearts. I then stuck my little Berry Burst punched out hearts onto the card in little groupings and added a touch of Wink of Stellar to them all.

So simple but cute.

Why not give it a go yourself and remember to add that hashtag when you share. My video talk through with measurements is on my You Tube channel now.

Thanks for dropping in.

    1. I don't know where it came from ... perhaps a human mum to 5 puppies and their besieged parents stupor is how it happened :D
