Simple Sunday

I don't often have time to make cards on Sunday, and when I do, they are always simple.  We are usually busy getting ready for church and then my boys insist we watch football together in the afternoons (I knit!). 

Set 270 - God Bless

Today's Featured Stamper challenge at SplitCoast Stampers was number 200 and the title was "Reflection".  We were to CASE any of the first 199 featured stampers.  I immediately went back to Jenn's gallery because I love her cuttlebugging and I knew that I could keep it simple!  I CASED this card.  I changed the colors and sentiment, but stuck with the cute embossed flowers!

  • Stamps: Stampin' Up God Bless

  • Paper: Stampin' Up Crumb Cake, Real Red, black

Set 271 - Botanical Garden

Sadly, our card racks at church are always in need of sympathy cards.  Here is a quick card that I think has a lot of impact.

I like clean ands simple sympathy cards - frills just aren't necessary.  In this case I simply stamped the image with Staz-On and did a light wash of So Saffron on some of the petals.  I added a few dots of Liquid Pearls on the main flower.  This spectacular sympathy sentiment from DRS Designs worked perfectly with the very graphic flower image.

  • Inks: Staz-On Black, So Saffron
  • Papers: Stampin' Up Very Vanilla
