#simplestamping. If you are on Pinterest or Facebook, perhaps you have seen that hashtag . Simple Stamping. It's a term we demonstrators have been accustomed to using when referring to a card that has simply stamps, ink, and paper. A real simple stamping project doesn't use punches or dies or fancy techniques. Simple stamping is great for beginners and works well for seasoned stampers, as well. I think the card I'm sharing for project #10 would qualify as simple stamping. It does use a technique, but sponging isn't so difficult. In fact, when I used my new Blending Brushes from the January - June Mini Catalog to do the shading in this card, it didn't feel difficult at all! Totally perfect for simple stamping.
This card features Curvy Christmas, a stamp set that will not be found in any catalog, but instead is an exclusive, limited time product offering. It is only available while supplies last.
Curvy Christmas is part of the Curvy Celebrations promotion going on with Stampin' Up!® through December. Along with Curvy Christmas, we are also offering an exclusive 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper called Classic Christmas.
I did not use the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper for my card. Remember: I kept it super simple.
Ok, wait. I do have a small confession. In my card I did use a die from the Quite Curvy Bundle to make a mask so I could sponge the sky without getting ink in my snow white landscape. This Quite Curvy Bundle contains a stamp set and dies that will be available in the January - June Mini Catalog. However, it is available now as an early release bundle. In fact, if you purchase this bundle from me by the end of November, you will receive supplies for a free class using this bundle! If you purchase the entire variety bundle (Curvy Christmas, Classic Christmas DSP, and the Quite Curvy Bundle) by the end of November, I'll give you supplies for two more bonus cards. It's a great deal, so don't delay!
Back to the featured card...Yes, I used the dies to create the curve for the mask. However, this mask could easily be made by stamping the trees on a scrap piece of paper, then cutting the curve free hand, following the curve of the trees. Just like that, simple stamping. I hope you enjoy this one - it's one of my favorites! (Do I say that about every project? Maybe...) Watch my process here:
