Simple Stamping

Floral Essence Friendly Thoughts Card

Where would I be without my family and friends? I don't want to even think about that. My relationships with my family and friends helped me to be the person I am today. Without any of them, my story would be different. Some of these people are family that became friends too, and some are friends that became family. I'm grateful for all of them, including my Stampin' Up! family and my stamping friends.

My card today celebrates friendships by giving you a #simplestamping card you can make in Calypso Coral as I did or in your favorite Stampin' Up! colors. I'm posting a project sheet to help you do just that.

Enjoy Today!

The older I get, the more I understand what "living in the moment" really means. I want to truly be present in all of life's moments, big and small. I want to stop and smell the roses! I want to just sit and listen to a friend. I want to enjoy the ride on this journey called life. There are so many people that have helped me want to truly live this way. I always thought I was, but now realize it's so easy to forget to take time to just enjoy the day. So today, I'm choosing to find joy and gratitude in all things that are happening and in all the people I come across today. I hope you too will find ways to enjoy today, no matter where you are or who you are with or what you are doing. 

I received this swap card from Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Jennifer Merle-Hamscher. What a terrific card layout using layers of 3" x 4" Designer Series Paper and 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" card stock.

Simple Stamping for your Sunday

Happy Sunday (a snowy Sunday for some of you). Here's an example of "Simple Stamping" which consists of Stamps, Ink, and Paper. I've added a tiny bit of ribbon to embellish the card. This is a great example of a card for beginner stampers or those who just enjoy simple paper crafting. For the more avid stamper, you can certainly take this card to the next level by adding embossed texture to the backgrounds, more stamping in more color, and fun embellishments. Grapefruit Grove is the featured color. Have you used Grapefruit Grove? It's one of Stampin' Up! five 2018-2020 In Colors which also include Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Lovely Lipstick, and Pineapple Punch.

Butterfly Gala Stamp Set, Grapefruit Grove card stock and ink
Dimensions: Grapefruit Grove card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" on long side. Cut Whisper White layer 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" and adhere to card front. Stamp butterflies in Grapefruit Grove ink on 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" Whisper White card stock, then layer on top of 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" Grapefruit Grove card stock.
