I love quick and easy cards.  Who Doesn’t?  Today I have shared one that is really quick and only needs a few different products to make.  I will also go ahead and give you a hint……tomorrow’s card is using the same colors for a more advanced card.  Well, it looks advanced but is probably as easy to make as today’s card.

Back to the card.  It is one that would be great to have on hand and add an appropriate sentiment, or have several pre-made with different sentiments.  It also qualifies as a #simplestamping card.


Beauty Abounds, 148726


I used one stamp set, the Beauty Abounds, and three ink pads.  I stamped the bokeh, or bubbles if you prefer, first.  I alternated the two colors.  Then simply stamped the filigree type flower over top of them in Memento Tuxedo Black.

For the sentiment, I stamped it first and then added the bokeh.  I combined two sentiments to make this one.  Don’t be afraid to mix and match like that.  The couple of pearls were for some bling.  And don’t tell anyone, but there is a tiny smudge above the sentiment so it got a bit larger pearl!  Ssshhhh….:)

Thank you for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it.  Please return tomorrow to see the card using the same colors.  Truthfully, I did the other card first and then used what was on the table to create today’s card.

It has the Stampin’ Up! logo.  It is made of a great heavy weight canvas.  And it is so Pretty!!
