Inspiring Iris Card Ideas #simplestamping

I'm featuring Inspiring Iris card ideas once again as I used it for my weekly Simple & Stepped Up Facebook Live.  #simplestamping is a concept where we take the very basics of card making:  stamps, ink, paper to make a card.  Sometimes we add one other element, but for this design I kept it super simple.

Here are the points to note about my #simplestamping card:

  • Stamps, Ink, Paper–that's it!
  • 2 colors of ink, 3 colors of cardstock
  • Black and white are basics
  • I kept it super simple, so this is perfect for a beginning card maker–just a few supplies.
  • Although this is #simplestamping, it made for a lovely Spring card!

For the second #simplestamping card demonstration, I stepped it up just a bit:

  • Contrasting color card base
  • Designer Series Paper addition
  • Punched out greeting
  • Pool Party Stampin' Blends Marker as a background to make the irises pop
  • Linen Thread adds softness and texture
  • Elegant Faceted Gems for a bit of shine inspiringirisstampinupcandyrattrayI'm happy with the way both these cards turned out and the way they show that both #simplestamping and a bit of added extras make for great handmade cards that are perfect for every level of crafter.  Click on the video below to see the design process, demonstration, and tips for fabulous color combos.
