InspireINK October Blog Hop: Back to Basics Simple Stamping

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 

Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project I have made for the InspireINK Blog Hop. The theme this month is Back to Basics, so I have done #simplestamping. We were allowed to use one stamp set, one ink pad, one card stock colour (along with white, black or vanilla) and one punch or 1 die cut. I have kept mine really simple by not using the punch or die cut.

I designed a very simple card, then I stepped it up a bit, then stepped it up again but still keeping it simple.

To test how simple my design was I got my other half, Ed, who has never stamped or made a card in his life follow my instructions and design. He did really well and you will be able to see his debut stamping on my YouTube channel tomorrow.
