“It’s Good Enough….”

Here is another Clean and Simple (CAS) card made using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  

Stamp Set – Thankful Thoughts
Cardstock – Early Espresso, Delightful Dijon, Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink – Early Espresso
AccessoriesDetailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Big Shot, Precision Base Plate, Gold Wink of Stella, Metallics Enamel Shapes, Snail Adhesive

I used the Gold Wink of Stella to highlight the body of these dragonflies.  It really stands out when you look at the card in person.

You may have noticed the small “halo” near the capitalized “T” – I’m keeping the card and will send it out anyway.  Because I stamped on a piece of designed series paper, I decided that the “blip” did not detract from the card enough to  toss it in the trash.

As I once heard Shelly Gardner, CEO of Stampin’ Up!, say at a live demonstration – “it’s good enough for the person it’s going to”.  I often remind myself, and my customers, of that saying.  If a card is perfect and mass printed, it might be called “Hallmark”.

A handcrafted card is like sending a hug with a fold in the middle!

Beautiful You!

This Clean and Simple (CAS) card was created with the new stamp set I just received  – “Beautiful You“.    I have seen some fabulous cards that were made with this set and I was enabled to add the “Beautiful You” stamp set to my shelf.  Yes, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators are enabled, too!

Stamp Set – Beautiful You
Cardstock – Perfect plum, Whisper White
Ink – Basic Black, Perfect Plum
Accessories – Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

Clean and Simple cards provide a fun break – stamping a card in a few minutes can yield wonderful results.  I can see myself making many more cards using the “Beautiful You” stamp set.

You can see all of the images and sentiments included in this set below.

“Life may not be the party we had hoped for, but while we’re here, we might as well dance. Doesn’t that stamp just say it all? The rest can be expressed by the other stamps in this set. You’ll love the artistic feel of this set–stamp a colorwash image over a silhouette for color, or add your own color with Watercolor Pencils or ink.”  (this description is from Stampin’ Up!)
