Apple Harvest SIP Card

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I have a card to share with you using only Stamps, ink, and paper. If you caught this week's Technique Tuesday Video you may recognize the background. But I used the Apple Harvest Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! to create this fun colorful card.

Apple Harvest SIP Card:

First off you may be wondering Rick what in the world is a SIP card? Well, it's a quick and easy card great for new crafters or anyone that wants to make a card in a flash because it only uses Stamps, ink, and paper.

For this one I used one of the marbled backgrounds that we made on Tuesday and stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest Stamp set on it in Tuxedo Black Ink.

I stamped the image directly on the marbled background that we made to make it super easy. I then used my ink pads in the same colors as what I used to make the marbled background and a Blender Pen to color in the image. For this card I used Moody Mauve Classic Ink, Wild Wheat Classic Ink and I threw in a little Pecan Pie Classic Ink for the branch. I thought a Boho Blue brunch would have looked funny.

After I colored the panel I cut it down to 4" x 5 1/4" to fit on my A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card base made from Crumb Cake Cardstock. I then stamped my sentiment directly on the card front but quickly decided that I didn't like it and stamped it again onto a scrap of Basic White Cardstock in Moody Mauve Ink.

To finish off the card I added the new sentiment strip cut down to fit the sentiment with some Multipurpose Liquid Glue over the original sentiment that just didn't stand out enough. And that was all I did to finish off the Apple Harvest SIP Card. I have all the supplies that I used listed below in the shopping list.
