Beautiful You Birthday


I’m a bit late, but it *is* still Wednesday, so I call that a result!

Today I’m showing another quick and easy, clean and simple card that I created for my recent new catalogue and Sale-a-bration launch parties.  It uses the gorgeous “Beautiful You” set that I loved the moment I saw it – I was lucky enough to win a set at the last OnStage event in November.  This is a really versatile stamp set that lends itself to watercolouring, pencils, paper piecing, you name it!  And it’s all over demo’s blogs and Pinterest boards.  Here’s the one layer design I came up with:

Beautiful You, Clean and Simple, Monochrome, Birthday

I also wanted to show that creating a card doesn’t need lots of things – this is a one layer card using one stamp set and one ink colour.

I used the stamp-a-majig to line up my three ladies and to position my sentiment.  When I filled in the rightmost image I stamped off the Elegant Eggplant once for a contrast.

When I was demonstrating this card at one of my launch parties, I forgot to stamp off once, so I stamped the middle image to demonstrate how the stamped off image would look and the next version of the card was born – this is in Watermelon Wonder:

Beautiful You, Birthday, Monochrome, Clean & Simple

One of my attendees went one step further as she like it so much and also stamped the final image.

Simple but effective, I thought.  Hope you like it!  See you at the weekend.
