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.

Simple Stems - Make a Wish - JIFThis next card is very clean which makes it VERY adaptable to most any situation – thank you, birthday, congratulations, or even with sympathy – simply by swapping the Basic Pearls with a sentiment.

Simple Stems - Baked Brown Sugar - JIF

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! 🙂

Simple Stems - Stamp Set - JIFRemember though, this is only available in the Celebrate the Everyday Catty which will be concluding June 1, 2014!

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

Not quite on time!

We had business in Terrace on Saturday which we didn’t think was going to take so long but even with having breakfast there we still ended up racing into the house 40 minutes late for the sleepover Boy Child was invited to that night. An entire day in the blink of an eye!

Hence there was no time to make a card for the birthday boy so had to find something in my already made stash. Well, in theory that should have been a piece of cake you would have thought but noooooo…note to self, MAKE MORE MASCULINE CARDS!

I certainly had the coloring for males on some cards but the sentiment in retrospect wasn’t quite right. Out of all the cards I had there was only one that would be appropriate. This was it made with the fabulous Clorkworks stamp set!

Inkee Fiddlings - Clockworks - 2012-13 Incolors

 Admittedly I do rather like this card but fear I cannot take the credit for its design as I CASEd it (Copy And Share Everything) but from where I cannot remember 🙁

Created in last year’s In-Colors, it really does pop don’t you think?
