Happy Friday!! This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog we are sharing SIP cards - those that are created using only Stamps, Ink and Paper. These types of cards are perfect for someone who is just getting started and doesn't have a large stash of products to use. But that doesn't mean SIP cards can't be beautiful! For my project I decided to focus on one of the stamp sets that is 25% off during November, the Tin of Tags stamp set, along with the non-traditional color combination of crumb cake, pink pirouette, soft sky and whisper white.
This Tin of Tags stamp set is perfect for tags, but it also is excellent for your Christmas cards! And even better, it's on sale for $15.75 all month long!
I added texture to my card by misting the pink pirouette card stock strip with water and crumpling it. I flattened it back out and let it dry and the result was this fun textured piece that almost looks like leather. In addition, I created a card stock "ribbon" by cutting a super-thin strip and then breaking down the fibers by running it over my bone folder several times. That allowed it to become pliable enough to tie it in a knot.
Here's one more view of my card. For even more SIP card inspiration please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
