Handmade Rubber Stamped Greeting Card

Making a simple handmade rubber stamped greeting card is a snap when you have just a few supplies. Let’s talk about which ones should be high on your list!

Before we get to that though, let’s see what we’re making!

Use Colourful Patterned Papers for Handmade Cards

Rubber Stamping From Around the World

I’m thrilled to be a guest on Kristy’s blog today. I’m Jo-Anne Rogers, of Design with Jo and I’m coming to you all the way from Canada.

In the midst of snow and cold, it was fun to design a card with a breath of fresh air and sunshine for you.

Rubber Stamping Supplies for Quick Card Making

So what supplies would I suggest need to be on your “must have” card making list?

  • Rubber Stamps: I know, this seems a bit redundant, but when you have so many choices of gorgeous stamps from Stampin’ Up!, how do you decide? Here’s what I suggest: 1. Pick what you like. 2. Decide which styles and sentiments you will use the most. 3. Choose sets that will coordinate with other products (here the punch and designer series papers match).
  • Patterned Papers: Gorgeous papers make card making easy. This Dandy Garden designer series paper really does ALL the work! A colourful design to exactly match the stamps and punch – how easy is that?
  • Inks: Once you’ve decided on your stamps and papers, now you need to some ink to coordinate. Here, the Mossy Meadow ink on the greeting exactly matches the card’s base layer. And the dragonfly in Calypso Coral is identical to the dragonflies in the paper.
  • A Few Embellishments: Here’s where we can overdo it. Simple is generally better. So on this card, just three little sequins from the Artistry in Bloom suite in the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue is all it takes to make this a WOW card!
