Simple Stamping Sunday: Humming Along

For this week’s Simple Stamping Sunday card, I used the Humming Along stamp set. This set was one that I received when I attended OnStage in Orlando in November. I love the big bold flower and the detailed hummingbird. I also like the simply stated sentiments! The black lines of this set make it perfect for coloring with Stampin’ Blends Markers, which is what I used to add most of the color on this card!

You can see the whole Humming Along stamp set below:

It really is a beautiful set!

Here’s the color combo I used:

The following supplies were used to make this card:

  • Humming Along stamp set
  • Very Vanilla Notecards and Envelopes
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink pad
  • Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers Combo Pack
  • Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers Combo Pack
  • Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers Combo Pack
  • Grapefruit Grove Ink Refill
  • Aqua Painter

Instructions for making this card are as follows:

  1. Stamp the flower and sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Let dry.
  2. Color the flower in Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. Color the center stamen of the plant with Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.
  3. Add one drop of Grapefruit Grove ink refill to a clean stamping block. Drop a few drops of water onto the block with an Aqua painter and swirl together to mix.
  4. Use the wet Aqua Painter to splatter ink spots from the bottom right corner up to the upper left corner of the card. Let dry.
  5. Stamp and color the envelope to match (if desired).

And that’s it! It’s that simple!

Even with only a few basic supplies, you can make really beautiful cards! I hope you’ll give Simple Stamping a try!
