Welcome to the August Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. Our theme this month is Clean and Simple Cards. The Artistically Inked stamp set is perfect for creating Clean and Simple cards.
Clean and Simple cards have lots of white space and a minimalist feel to them. They are without embellisments or “bling” and ribbons. For my card, I used the Artistically Inked stamp set and the coordinating leaf die- both in Gorgeous Grape. I love the “swoop” of the die. The sentiment “welcome, baby” is from the Widly Adorable stamp set.
Have you ever liked a card so much that you decide to make it another color? By definition these cards are simple and that means quick to make too! Soooo, that’s what happened to me today. Here it is Balmy Blue.
And, if two are good, three must be better! Here’s the last one in Rich Razzleberry!
INstructions for Artistically Inked Clean & Simple Card
- Cut your card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and score at 4 1/4″.
- Using the same color ink as the card base, stamp the large watercolor stamp twice across your Basic White mat (5 1/4″ x 4″.)
- Die cut a sprig of leaves from the same color cardstock as the card base and adhere to the card front.
- Stamp your sentiment in the same color ink.
- Adhere your card mat to the front of the card base.
- Adhere a card mat (5 1/4″ x 4″) to the inside of the card base.
That’s it! It’s Clean and Simple so 6 steps and you are done!
