Fresh Thinking of You - Stampin' Up! Ringed With Nature

  One of my goals for designing for my Quick & Easy card classes is to use minimal supplies and use some easy techniques that sometimes get lost in the fancy die cut and messy ink techniques world.  I want my customers to be able to go home and create a card of their own using the color combo or layout or easy technique even if they don't own the exact stamp set.  Keeping supplies to a manageable level not only helps me for packing for class but can also help beginners feel able to jump right in with more experienced stampers.

  I love this fresh color combination for an all purpose thinking of you card.  I used a set that seems like it's really for fall and winter; do you recognize the poinsettia flower?  With Orchid Oasis and Pale Papaya Ringed With Nature doesn't seem so seasonal now does it?

  The easy technique on this card is just the torn edge of the stamped layer letting a bit more of the Orchid Oasis card base peek through.  A bit of shimmer is brought in with the ribbon and the sentiment tag punched with the retired Tailored Tag punch adds some modern angles.  A few Matte Decorative Dots are sprinkled among the flowers and leaves for a bit of texture.

  Card base, stamped layer and punched sentiment that's all and that's really easy to translate into a card with supplies you have at home.  It's also fantastic if you are stamping multiples.  Add in a few embellishments (rhinestones and pearls are perfect all purpose embellishments if you don't want to commit to colors!).

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
