Season of Thanks SIP Card

Today I have a SIP card (Stamps, Ink, Paper), #stampsinkpaper, that features the Gather Together stamp set. I’ve been a long-time member of a local chapter of the American Business Women’s Association and recently hosted a mini-mixer at my home for a small group of members. In addition to the socializing and refreshments, I designed two cards for the women to make that will be donated to the Cards for Soldiers organization. One card is for the recipient to keep and the other is for them to send to a friend or loved one back home. Since not everyone knew how to stamp and there was a limited amount of time to do the projects I had to keep the cards easy to make. I think it turned out to be simple yet elegant. I also used this project at my stamping club last week. All of the club members are avid crafters and they loved making this card too!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut piece of Cajun Craze cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half.
  • Cut piece of the woodgrain paper from the Come to Gather Designer Series Papers at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card base.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″. Using the leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set, stamp two leaves with Cajun Craze ink and then fill in the blank spots by stamping the leaves with Blackberry Bliss. Attach to a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock cut at 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″ and attach to card front
  • Stamp greeting with Blackberry Bliss ink on piece of Whisper White cardstock and use circle punch or circle die to cut out. Punch a larger circle with a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and adhere to the greeting. Attach to the card.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside of card. Stamp leaf in left corner and stamp greeting of your choice or leave blank.

Floral Essence SIP Card

Today’s card features the Floral Essence stamp set and was designed as a SIP (Stamps, Ink, Paper) card, so it is an easy card to create for both beginner crafters as well as avid crafters with a limited amount of time for cardmaking.

  • The color combination for the card is Rococo Rose, one of the new InColors, Smoky Slate and Balmy Blue. Here is how I made the card.
  • Card base – cut piece of Balmy Blue cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half.

  • Stamp the sentiment with Balmy Blue ink at bottom right on the piece of Whisper cardstock. To create the background, stamp the large floral image with Smoky Slate ink multiple times on piece of the Whisper White cardstock.
  • Stamp the three-petal image with Rococo Rose ink six times on a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock. Punch the petals out with the Perennial Flower Punch. Attach two of the petals together with a mini glue dot to make one flower. Repeat two more times.
  • Adhere stamped background piece to card front. Attach the punched flowers to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside of card. Stamp large floral image at bottom corner of card using one of the three colors from the card and adhere.
