Creating clean and simple cards with Marcie

April 6, 2020

Clean and simple cards should in theory be easy to put together. In reality, some can really struggle with placement and overall design of where images and sentiments should go. We want our simple designs to have fresh lines and draw the eye exactly where it needs to go. Charles Mingus said about creative simplicity, “Making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.” Let’s see if we can use our Ink Road stamps to create some awesomely simple cards!

I have three cards for you today using some of my favourite pop culture stamps and am sharing some tips on keeping it clean and simple. I’ll show you two of my creations up close and hopefully they will inspire you to pull out those stamps and get CAS (clean and simple!).

An easy to recreate design is the key to clean and simple creating. I used the same layout for all three of my cards here and they would be quick to reproduce if needed. One main image and open white space are elements to CAS creations. Here I have clustered smaller images across the front of a white cardstock panel to use as my “one” main image. I stamped with black Copic-friendly ink and coloured them in with Copic markers on each design. Don’t forget that “white space” doesn’t have mean literally that…feel free to substitute any colour of cardstock. 🙂 The sentiment underneath in a crisp black ink finishes off the panel, and all of them are adhered to an A2 card base using a coordinating colour of cardstock. Easy, right?!

This is MY interpretation of a simple design. It really varies from designer to designer though. Don’t be afraid to experiment with clean and simple creations. Add your own personal touches! A touch of sparkle? Sure! Some paint splatter? Why not?! Gems, pearls or sequins? You do you. 🙂

Check out the sets I used in the Ink Road store!

 Don’t forget to use the code MARCIE10 for 10% your purchase at The Ink Road store. There are so many fun pop culture stamps to use and create amazing clean and simple cards with! You can find examples of other clean and simple cards on the blog here, here and here! Have a great day!

Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal
but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any
ideas or suggestions? With thanks
