#SimpleStamping on Saturday with Waves of Inspiration

by Joanne James23. April 2022 18:58

Hi everyone! I have a quick post today following on from yesterday's post showcasing the wave in the 'Waves of Inspiration' stamp set. I mentioned in yesterday's post that this wave would make a great #SimpleStamping card so today I wanted to show you a pared-down, basic example of that using this week's Freshly Made Sketches layout courtesy of the lovely Kim:

 

And here's my #SimpleStamping card:

 

I used the same broad layout for yesterday's card (Kim's sketch is a favourite layout of mine that I often come back to) but for today's card I was completely faithful to it. I stamped my wave using my Stamparatus to build up my layers of ink colour and cropped it for fit the centre of my card. I matted it with a thin border in Night of Navy and added a birthday sentiment from the same set that I trimmed to fit:

 

A stamp, inks and paper; just 6 items - nothing else required! Clean and uncluttered - just my thing!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project for our new challenge over at the Paper Players where I am the hostess. Until then, happy stampin'!

This is AMAZING!!!  So simple and such a great way to use this image.  So many samples I've seen have been a bit over the top with this wave, but I love what you did here.  Just fabulous!

What a great wave and such amazing colors! I love it in the center panel of the sketch! (Yesterday's wave with all of the detail was fabulous too - but it also works beautifully on this fresh and clean card!) Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
