#simplestamping Card Class

Yesterday I had my first in-person mini card class since the COVID mess started with a neighbor of mine.  She has a cottage a couple of doors down from us and we have been spending the summer together so we both thought it was safe to do a class.  I had forgotten how much fun it is to teach someone new to stamping.  They always think they aren’t creative and can’t do it and it is fun to watch them realize that they can and that they love it!

We made three simple cards.  Two of them just involved stamping and the third one we did some die cutting with the new Stampin’ Up!® Cut & Emboss Machine.  These are the two stamping cards.


The first one we used the stamp set called Cute Fruit.  This set is in the Stampin’ Up!® Beginners Brochure.  I first stamped the background pineapples in BumbleBee Ink on BumbleBee cardstock.  Then we stamped the pineapple in BumbleBee and Granny Apple Green ink.


The second card I used some World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper and the stamp set called Sailing Home.  Both of these cards just involved stamps, paper and ink.


She loved making those cards so I decided to step it up a bit to show her how to die cut an image.  I actually posted this card a few weeks ago on my blog but I will show it to you again.  It used the dies called Stitched Leaves.  She loved the way the dies cut the leaf and added the stitching to it.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Lovely You.  It has a coordinating punch called Banners Pick a Punch.

Stampin Up Stitched Leaves

I will always remember my first time stamping.  I was invited to a workshop.  I didn’t want to go but it was being held by a friend of mine so I felt obligated to go.  I am so glad I did!  I loved it from that minute on!  Everyone can stamp.  Even people who are as un-artisitic as me!  Stampin’ Up!® makes it so easy.  Remember that commercial where it said “Try it.  You’ll like it”? I can’t remember what it was for, but it certainly pertains to stamping.  I haven’t met a single person who didn’t enjoy making a card or two.

Cute Fruit

Stampin Up Cute Fruit, #simplestamping

Cute Fruit is a stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up!® Beginner Brochure.  The Beginner Brochure is a small booklet that they came out with for people that have never stamped before.  It is great because they packaged items together that are easy to use and all go together.  The bundles give you everything you need to make beautiful cards.  You get the stamps, cardstock, eight different inks and a clear block. You can buy all the products using one item number or you can order them each separately if you prefer.

I already owned all the supplies needed in the bundle so I just ordered the stamp set because I thought it was really cute.  I love the little faces you can put on the fruit (Lynette, this is for you). The stamps are Photopolymer so they are easy to make the images.  I first stamped the pineapple in BumbleBee ink and the green top in Just Jade.  I stamped the face and the sentiment in Misty Moonlight.  I decided to add a few of  the 2020/2022 In Color Enamel Dots.  The Designer Series Paper is the 2020/2022 InColor 6″ x 6″ paper stack.
