Today’s card is another that qualifies as #simplestamping. This one is a very “clean” card, which is not something I do very often.
The All Bundled Up stamp set from the Mini Catalog is so cute! The various little critters have been used by me several times since the catalog launched. Animals are a favorite image and these are top notch. These are easy to color and have some wonderful expressions. This little guy was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored using Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. To help ground him, I used the light Pool Party Blend and squiggled a bit of a shadow at his feet.
The second stamp set used on this card is the Peaceful Deer stamp set. Only sentiments were used. There was temptation for a few of the small images of this set. However, I restrained myself and stuck with the simplicity of the single bunny.
A layout of White on White is such a great choice and makes the perfect “clean” card. But I went just a step further and did some dry embossing on the top layer of White. Using my Simply Scored, I scored all four sides at 1/4″ and 3/8″. It does not show well in the photo. There is a bit at the top you can see. Please trust me that it is on all four sides! With most of the top layer left white, I thought it needed a little something. And a few score lines really add to the card. Plus by raising the top layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals, that gives more depth to the card.
The final touch was adding a little bling. Even a little bunny needs some bling. So there are three of the Fine Sparkle Gems added above the sentiment. To be different, I added two that are a Pool Party color and one of a more Balmy Blue color.
