Quick and Simple Card Using Stamps, Ink and Paper

Make this quick and simple card using just stamps, ink and paper. A card using just stamps, ink and paper is known as a SIP card. Make it with paper and stamps you have on hand. No need to buy anything special. It makes great use of scrap paper, too.

I made this for a card challenge. I chose to use Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper with Basic White cardstock for my base. Whimsical Trees stamp set provided the tree image. The greeting came from Peaceful Deers stamp set. The versatile layout of this card lends to using whatever is on hand.

The card, above, uses the other two halves of DSP from the video. I simply turned the paper over resulting in a different layout. Remember, there were two pieces of DSP cut on a slant. A wonderful benefit of Designer Series Paper – double sides! Placing the two sheets together and cutting on a slant allows all pieces to easily fit together. It is like putting together a puzzle!

With this card, I chose to mount the circle on a scalloped circle using Cajun Craze cardstock. A 1/4″ strip of Bumblebee cardstock covers the seam where the two papers adjoin. In making all of the cards, I pulled the colors from the Designer Series Papers for stamps and blender pens.
