Wintertime Calm …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Since I took Saturday off from blogging, I figured I would share a special post with you today. I am going to show you a progression of cards, from simple to a touch of glitz.

I started ever so simple with the “All is Calm” Specialty Designer Paper and the “Wintertime” stamp set. I haven’t used it yet, but have been dying to get my hands on it and stamp!

My core colors that I used are Pool Party and Island Indigo … even though those are not listed on the designer paper pack, the Pool Party went well with the pattern I chose.

I simply inked up the stamp with the Island Indigo and stamped directly onto the designer paper… assemble and you have a cute and quick card! Simple can still be pretty.

 

Now … If you’re one of us who like some sparkle to your cards, my next sample illustrates what a few rhinestones can do for your card. Oh my that’s pretty!

If you’d like to step it up a bit more and highlight the greeting, simply stamp another image onto the Whisper White cardstock … cut it out … and mat it with a little piece of Island Indigo.

Wow… that really adds dimension and gives your card a new look.

 

If you still don’t have enough sparkle … then instead of the Pool Party mat behind the designer paper, you could use our beautiful (and new) Dazzling Diamonds Shimmer paper.

Look at how that makes the entire card pop! So whether you like a more simple and subtle card or full out bling … you can see how easy you can transform your cards.

So head off into your stamp room and have some fun! Feel free to share your projects with me (lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com) I’d love to share your project with our stampin’ friends on Linda’s Stampin’ Escape blog… with your permission of course!

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Have yourself a wonderful day ~
