simplestamping is what I tackle every Thursday @ 2PM CT on Facebook Live. Stamps, ink, and paper are the backbone of what we do as paper crafters, and I love showing how easy it is to start making your own handmade cards and the challenge of doing something lovely with just a few supplies. Although #simplestamping helps beginner card makers, it is also the formula for quick and easy cards which I always love.
I wanted to feature Prized Peony for this week's #simplestamping session. It's a great all-occasion stamp set with versatile greetings and gorgeous flowers. It debuted in the 2020 annual Stampin' Up! catalog as part of a beautiful suite with very soft colors. I took Prized Peony in a totally different direction and went bold with Magenta Madness.
My first card uses this month's #simplestamping from Stampin' Up: stamps, ink, paper + a punch. That tiny dragonfly was the perfect little touch! For my second card I stepped it up with another layer (and color) of cardstock, ribbon, and a single pearl. Those little extras acted to soften my bold design making it softer and more feminine.
