Simple Stems Resisted!

Guess what? I’m still playing with the Simple Stems Stamp Set so I hope you’ve ordered yours, lol! 🙂

For this card I actually wanted to achieve something “masculine” but by choosing Pacific Point instead of Midnight Muse I may not have achieved my objective completely. I chose just the one stamp to Clear Emboss then sponge over, which is known as the Resist Technique. The birthday sentiment came from the Delightful Dozen Stamp Set.

The Resist Technique is such an easy technique yet so effective. Plus it’s only now that I see the stamp I chose to heat emboss has a matching framelit, oh my, where IS my head at? Which by the way is from the Secret Garden Framelits Dies and can be found on this week’s Weekly Deals on sale!

Looking at this card “on the big screen” that flower could almost be mistaken for fireworks, cool!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Simple Stems Trio!

One of the challenges I set myself at the crop over the week-end was to do three cards using the beautiful Simple Stems Stamp Set found in the Celebrate the Everyday Catty. With seven stamps in the set it wasn’t going to be a difficult challenge, lol!

For the first card Calypso Coral Cardstock and Smoky Slate Cardstock were used as my layers to highlight the Silver Heat Embossing and the Watercolor Wonder DSP.

My last card came together quite by accident. The “L” layout I already had in my mind but it just wasn’t coming together Friday night so went home to sleep on it. Just as slumber was about to wash over me so did inspiration, this being the end result. Oh, how I’m going to miss Primrose Petals, sniff sniff, which I stamped the flower three times in then fussy cut each one then layered them on top of each other with dimensionals!

Simple Stems - Sending Good Thoughts - JIFAs you can see, the Simple Stems Stamp Set is a brilliantly adaptable stamp set, great as part of one’s stash! 🙂
