The inspirational colors of the day are Tempting Turquoise, Concord Crush, Certainly Celery and Basic Black! The featured stamp set is from the 2011-2012 Stampin Up Idea Book and Catalog.
I really liked this weeks colors together; however, I really didn’t have a lot of time to get my creative juices flowing. Therefore, I decided to start with basic stamping and go from there. Sometimes the most adorable or lovely card is a result of just stamping… no bling, no punches etc.
Today’s card is a 5 minute “Wow”. The base of my card is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Basic Black. I then stamped my flower in Tempting Turquoise and Concord Crush. I used the Certainly Celery to stamp the leaves.
The strip across the middle is 5-1/2″ x 1″ thick. I then cut a 5-1/2″ x 3/4″ Whisper White strip for the middle. I used my tearing edge to tear a bit of certainly celery to layer under my quote. That’s it!!!
I challenge you to look through your stamp sets and find a stamp set that you think would be perfect for some basic stamping. Pick 2 or 3 colors and give it a try. I think you’ll be surprised!!!
