Clean and Simple

I love making clean and simple cards... less is more, right? I tend to either focus on the patterns of some favourite papers to make my cards, or abandon papers all together and just focus on the stamps, making everything else really simple so the stamps stand out and become the feature.

I had a little time last night to put some of those dancing ideas for the Sassafras Lass Yummy in the Tummy stamp set into practice.

Cards 1 and 2 - Ingredients: Yummy in the Tummy stamp set by Sassafras Lass, Making Memories rubons, Pumpkin Pie marker by SU, Cinnamon versa colour ink, Crystal stickles, white cardstock base - so simple, and quick to make.

Cards 3 and 4 - Ingredients: Yummy in the Tummy stamp set by Sassafras Lass, Occassional Greetings and Short and Sweet stamp sets by Stampin' Up!, Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa ink by SU, Porcelain paper by Basicgrey, Earth Love paper by Cosmo Cricket, Sand Beige and Cinnamon versa colour inks.

Trying to get some sewing done today, have been feeling "papery" for a couple of days now so have gone with it, but I know I need to knuckle down now and get cracking on all those bags ready and waiting to be put together.

Have a good day wherever it takes you :)
