Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing a SIP card with you. A SIP card simply means it's made using just Stamps, Ink, and Paper. SIP Cards are great for those just starting out and for those that just want to make a quick card. I picked the Wildlife Wonder Stamp Set to showcase today. Here's a look at the card that I created to share with you today.
Tips & Tricks:
When you start off with any card design you have to pick your supplies first. I knew that I wanted to share this beautiful stamp set with you today, but the hard part was deciding what colors to use. I ended up in the end just going with a classic color pattern of just black & white. My card base was made from Basic White Thick Cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2". I then stamped the bear image from the stamp set along the bottom of the card base. I then added one to the inside as well. This was the starting point of creating my card.
Next I cut some Basic White Cardstock and Basic Black Cardstock for the focal image that would be on the front of the card. I stamped the bear on the Basic White Cardstock layer in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink just as I had on the card base. With the exception of I stamped the bear in the center but more towards the top of this panel. I then stamped the grasses at the bottom at different heights to fill in the bottom portion of the Basic White Cardstock layer. I felt as if the bear was floating in mid air so I took the shadow/ground image from the stamp set and stamped it under his paws so he was grounded. I stamped it twice. The first time I stamped it I did full streght ink. The second time I stamped it I stamped off on my Grid Paper first to have a second generation lighter shade. And I think it turned out beautifully.

The Wildlife Wonder Stamp Set is a Distinktive stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images. Distinktive Stamps are Patent pending and exclusive to Stampin' Up!.
To finish my card I added the Basic White Cardstock panel to a Basic Black Cardstock panel cut 1/4" larger than the Basic White stamped panel. This allowed for a nice mat around the focal image. I then took a strip of Basic White Cardstock and stamped the sentiment on in Tuxedo Black Ink. I wrapped this around the focal image and popped up the entire focal image using Black Stampin' Dimensionals. I did add a couple Basic Black dots from the Classic Matte Dots to the sentiment to help tie in the black a little more on the sentiment strip.
