August Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Banner Year Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. I have talked to a lot of you recently, but for my friends that I haven't been able to talk with - I am wondering how everyone is doing during these crazy times. Above all, I sure hope you have been able to find some time for crafting! The Simple Stamping Challenge for August is to create a project with only stamps, ink and paper, including Designer Series Paper, and the theme is open to either spooky or whimsical projects. I thought it would be fun to try out some of the cute stamps from the new Banner Year Stamp Set, p. 65 from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, for a Halloween card.


The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I paired several of the "spooky" images - the bat, the pumpkin and the jack-o-lantern face, the spider web - with the jar image from the Lots to Celebrate Stamp Set, p. 64, to create this row of spookiness on Whisper White cardstock, cut 4 1/4" x 2 1/4". I used the masking technique to hang the spider webs around the jars. The mat is the Mango Melody sheet from the Brights 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, cut precisely 5 1/8" x 3 1/4" to fit perfectly between the circle pattern.

The sentiment stamp was originally two lines, but I stamped them separately along a straight line (using the masking technique again) to create the long sentiment and flagged the ends. As you may have noticed, the Banner Year Stamp Set is bundled with the Banners Pick a Punch that would also be perfect for flagging the ends, but since this is a Simple Stamping challenge, I hand cut the flags.

Give this super simple card a try!
