Today’s card used a technique that I rarely do, but always love the results.  And maybe it isn’t really a technique per se.  It is stamping on your Designer Series Paper instead of just using it as a layer.  The results are usually very nice.  Here is what I did for today’s card.


Definitely Dahlia, 139911


This card definitely falls under Quick and Easy layout. There is really not very much to the card and the layers are simple.

The color combination came from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper. Wow! That’s a big name. But the paper lives up to that name.

Color Combination:

Other than the beautiful DSP, I simply stamped the Definitely Dahlia stamp with Fresh Fig ink and the sentiment with Tranquil Tide ink.  The sentiment is from the Label Me Pretty stamp set. The sentiment contains a tiny heart, but I wanted to add Fresh Fig to it , so I added an Enamel Shape Heart over the tiny heart.  And that is the extent of the card.  I hope you enjoyed it today.
