For this week’s Global Design Project, I combined our color challenge with Stampin’ Up’s #simplestamping challenge. That means I used Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather, and Shaded Spruce inks with just paper and stamps.

#simplestamping with Simply Zinnia


First, I stamped the three colors on Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, using a stamp from the Of Art & Texture Stamp Set. I started at the top, “stamping off” several times with Coastal Cabana, then Highland Heather, then Shaded Spruce. “Stamping off” is stamping on scratch paper, before stamping on your project, so the image is lighter. Next, I added a second, “spots,” stamp, “stamping off” one time in the three colors.


Second, I stamped the flowers, from the Simply Zinnia Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink.

The only other requirement for this month’s #simplestamping was to use a “thinking of you” sentiment. The Simply Zinnia Stamp Set has the perfect sentiment, “Sending flowers and thinking of you,” which I stamped in Memento Black Ink.

I glued my stamped layer to a Coastal Cabana card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, and my #simplestamping card was complete. Both stamps sets are in Online Exclusives, and you’ll find the link below.
