Stampin’ Up!® has been on a campaign to help beginner stampers. It is called #simplestamping. Sometimes we forget that we were once a beginner stamper and didn’t have a clue how to make a card or have many supplies. I learned at that time that I just needed to keep it simple. My first Stampin’ Up!® purchase was a Valentine set, Whisper White cardstock, Real red cardstock and Black Ink. The first cards I made were Valentines for my family and they all loved them. Everyone needs to start simple and progress from there.
I decided to make a very simple card that just involves stamping with ink to show how simple is still beautiful. I used the stamp set called Tasteful Touches. This stamp set does have coordinating dies called Tasteful Labels (and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle) but when first starting out you probably would not get them. I stamped the feather in Smoky Slate, Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Just Jade and Seaside Spray. I stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate. You don’t need to use all those colors. One or two would do.
I can’t think of a single person who would not appreciate receiving this card in the mail. Wouldn’t you?
As a reminder, this is my birthday week. I have decided to celebrate my birthday with you all week by giving FREE Shipping to all my customers who place a $50 order or more with me using the Hostess Code RMHPRSAM. If you place an order online, I will rebate you the shipping costs by PayPal or if you live locally, I can give you a check. If you need help ordering, let me know and I can place the order for you. Remember, you have to use the Hostess Code in order to receive free shipping. If your order is $150 (excluding tax and shipping) or more, do not use the Hostess Code so that you will get the hostess benefits yourself. If you do that I will still rebate you the shipping. This offer ends tomorrow, Saturday, August 29, 2020.
