Stampin' Up! Back on Your Feet - Clean & Simple


Hello! The card I'm sharing with you today is super quick and was inspired by this sketch at CAS Colors & Sketches.  This month you can use any of the 2021 challenges to enter their current challenge.  

I know three families whose week started off yucky, which is extra not fun this time of year, so I decided to make them each a card.  Instead of using ribbon or Designer Series Paper, I scored a few lines on the card with my Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  (You can see this better in the pictures below)

Card Base ~ Thick Basic White Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Scrap of Basic White Cardstock 

  • Score four lines on the bottom of the card, starting at 1/2" and moving up.  With the card open, turn it over to start scoring, so that the raised lines are on the front of the card. 
  • Stamp the giraffe using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the scrap of cardstock.
  • Color the giraffe with Watercolor Pencils.  (I used Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie for the body and Pumpkin Pie & Early Espresso for the spots)
  • Blend the colors with a Blender Pen. 
  • Fussy around cut the giraffe with Paper Snips. 
  • After getting an idea of where you are going to put your giraffe, stamp the sentiment with Tuxedo Black in. 
  • Attach the giraffe with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I kept the inside simple, just stamping another sentiment. 

Stamping doesn't always have to take a long time or be super fancy.  I really enjoy simple stamping sometimes and it can have quite an impact.

Happy Stamping!
