The year of #simplestamping

Hello fellow crafters! I hope you enjoyed holidays and found some time to relax.  This year Stampin’ Up! kicks off its #simplestamping campaign – calling on demonstrators to design and create beautiful cards just using stamps, ink and paper. Believe me it’s harder than it sounds! As an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator I love to design and create cards using a variety of our wonderful products.  Sometimes it’s difficult to get back to the simple thrill of putting ink to paper. I remember when I put ink to paper to create my very first card. I was so excited – I had actually created something beautiful. It was so easy and I was hooked! As time has gone by I’ve learned so much and challenged myself to create works of art with my stamps, inks, papers, and embellishments. This #simplestamping challenge is giving me a chance to take a step back and focus on simple creativity. Here are just a few of the cards I created with just stamps, ink, and paper.  I am including a supply list in case you to recreate these cards.  If you are not already working with a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would love to have you for a customer.  You can shop here for all the supplies shown below.  Feel free to leave a comment or let me know how I can help you create your own beautiful cards.
