#simplestamping | Lets Get Hopping #17

Hello and welcome to another Lets Get Hopping blog hop. Today the very talented ladies in the Lets Get Hopping team are sharing some #simplestamping projects.

The #simplestamping trend is a challenge focus issued by Stampin' Up! for the year of 2019, where demonstrators are encouraged to go back to basics and showcase projects using the basic stamping supplies most stampers start out with.
For example the monthly challenges so far this year have been;

  • January - create a Thank you card using only a card base, ink and one stamp set. 
  • February - create a Valentines Day card using only stamps, paper, ink and one punch
  • March - create a Birthday card using only stamps, paper, ink and one layer of Designer Series Paper (Patterned Paper)
These are the challenges are also the challenges that have been issued to the Let's Get Hopping team; create a card that meets the brief of one of the #simplestamping challenges.

Given that I am incredibly behind on my birthday cards this year I chose to take on the March challenge and create a Birthday card using stamps, paper, ink and a panel of DSP. I have to admit, this was an extremely tough challenge for me as my creative style leans towards lots of little details and layers. However, I was so happy with the first card I created I decided to make four more using the different colours featured in the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper Stack. 
So what do you think?

Okay, so I may have broken the rules just slightly and added a bow in Whisper White Bakers Twine and a Candle Embellishment to this cute little cupcake from the Hello Cupcake stamp set (another Sale-A-Bration freebie). However, when I first discovered Stampin' Up! it was the little embellishments and the beautiful ribbons and twines that I couldn't wait to get my hands on and they are the cheapest and easiest way for a beginner stamper to add a touch of something special to their projects.

I hope I've inspired you to have a go at a little simple stamping in your crafting. 

Next up is fellow aussie Teresa Brown. I can't wait to see what she has to share with us today
