Today’s card is a CAS/SIP Card! CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple, and SIP is an acronym for Stamps, Ink and Paper. A Clean and Simple card is one that has lots of white space, minimal layers, and little or no embellishments. I created this design with nothing more than ink stamped onto cardstock. Of course, the beautiful images in the Queen Bee stamp set helped a lot!

Today’s Card Parts & Pieces

  • I cut a Basic White card base 11″ x 4 1/4″‘ and scored at 5 1/2″.
  • I die cut the top Basic White layer using one of my Deckled Rectangle Dies. The layer measures about 3″ x 4 1/4″.
  • On the die cut layer, I stamped the images as follows:
    • With Crumb Cake ink and the “type print” image, I stamped off once onto the bottom right of the card layer, then stamped off once directly in the center of the card layer, then stamped again onto the top left corner of the layer.
    • I stamped the large Mango Melody flower image directly over the Crumb Cake images.
    • Then I stamped the bee image with Starry Sky ink as shown over the Crumb Cake and Mango Melody images.
    • Next, I stamped the crown with Rich Razzleberry ink at the top left of the bee.
    • Then, I stamped the Parakeet Party flower on the right side of the bee.
    • I stamped the sentiment with Crumb Cake ink.
  • For a little interest and to highlight the deckled edge on the layer, I added a little Starry Sky ink to the edges with a Sponge Dauber.
  • Finally, I shaded the bee’s heart with a Light Parakeet Party Blend.
  • The top layer is adhered to the card base with Dimensionals.

This is such a quick and easy card to create, and it was refreshing to just stamp ink to paper.

So, our Queen Bee is back. Get your stamps, stamp the images on a cardstock layer and create a Clean Vintage card just to say “Hello”.

… the only limitation is your imagination!
