I usually aim for quick and easy cards.  Well today I have the ultimate of that!  The new Color Me Happy stamp set that has arrived to go with the new Stampin’ Blends is really a perfect set.  The designs are intended to be colored.  I chose the only word stamp.

The Designer Series Paper is the Whole Lot of Lovely, and it gave me the colors to use.  As you can see from these beautiful stripes, I could have chosen several that would have been wonderful.  But I went with Tranquil Tide for the base.  Because the Thank You is stamped in black, I did a narrow border of black behind the DSP and the focal layer.

I colored the shadow part of the word with the Pool Party blend and left it there.  I could have colored the entire word with the light and then the dark for the shadow.  But after doing the shadow, I decided that was sufficient.  As I said to begin with this is the ultimate Simple Thanks.

There are black dots on each side of the “YOU” of the sentiment.  To give that a little attention, I added the Black Rhinestones on each of those.  I love those little cuties!  And I must say that when I first saw them I thought there is no way those will fit on any card that I make.  HaHa!!  I was so wrong!  They are another item from the Holiday Catalog that I hope carries over.

The Stampin’ Blends will be available to customers on November 1, as will the stamp set.  I hope you will give them a try.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I love reading your comments.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  When you click on an item you will be taken directly to my online store.  I hope you had an awesome day!!
