Simple Card Saturday Featuring Friendly Wishes

Good Saturday Morning Stampers! I am super excited today… I got my stamp studio cleaned and I am so looking forward to hosting my Totally Techniques Class this morning.  I have a FUN group of ladies coming, some new ladies (which is always awesome) and fun projects to make.  Life couldn’t be better… well only if I won the lottery??

I have a super simple card to share with you today, I made this for a display that I had at my CATALOG KICKOFF PARTY and I just loved how soft the card turned out.  It is SUPER simple to recreate…

Friendly Wishes with Striped Scallop Thinlit

I used roughly 4 basic tools to create this card.  I used the STRIPED SCALLOP THINLIT as a template to create the sponged pattern on the background, (notice the matching envelope?? Super adorbs right?!)  Making the background was easy, I just laid the thinlit on top of my paper and used a sponge with some TIP TOP TAUPE ink and applied some ink… the softer you smudge the sponge the more it looks like the effect in the picture.

Of course I used the FRIENDLY WISHES stamp set, which is filled with such great sentiments. I inked up this stamp using the markers so I could get 2 colors on one image- simple and cool!  Then I punched my strips using the TRIPLE BANNER PUNCH to create these larger flag ends to my sentiments.  And TA-DA… all done.  Layer on a few accent colors and BAM- you have a perfect card.  I would probably go back and add Dazzling Details all over it but that’s just me, LOL!!

Check out this other adorable treat bag I created for the party too-

Friendly Wishes with Petite Cafe Bag

Making this bag was a breeze too.  I used the same color scheme for this as I did on the card and I used the same markers (Tip Top Taupe and Blushing Bride) and of course I embossed the background layer and hand cut the flag ends but this bag could be easily paired with that card above- so simple it hurts, bwahahaha!

Do you prefer simple stamping projects or are you more of a WOW – OVER THE TOP style stamper?  I can be both, but I usually gravitate towards the simple style.  I am a WAM, BAM, Thank you Ma’am kind a gal… well when it comes to stamping 😉
