Clean & Simple (CAS) Thank You Card

Normally, I’m not one for clean and simple. I like a lot of fluff on my cards 🙂 Furthermore, I’m late to the Inspired by Nature party because while I’ve had this set for a while, I’ve never used it. We planted some pink coneflowers in our garden over the summer, so I decided now would be a good time to put some ink to that stamp.

I used Gina K Luxury Base Weight White card stock. It’s great for a one layer card because it’s super thick and sturdy. I inked the stamp using my Stampin Up Markers–the stems with Pear Pizzaz, the flowers with Blushing Bride and a little bit of Melon Mambo, plus Soft Suede for the flowers’ centers.

The sentiment is actually 2 separate stamps from Thank You Kindly. I stamped “thanks” with Blushing Bride ink and the other with Soft Suede ink.

I wish there was more to say, but that’s it! The thing that took the longest was coloring on the stamp with the markers. The rest of the card was done in just a few minutes .

Congratulations Card


WOW! The font on this “congratulations” stamp is just beautiful! It’s called Well Scripted and again, I ordered it in clear mount. It couldn’t be easier to use.

The card base is striped Kraft (from Taste of Textiles) and I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.

Then, I used the butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and my Big Shot to decorate the rest of the card front. The butterflies are made from Melon Mambo, Apricot Appeal, and Baja Breeze card stock. They’re attached with Mini Glue Dots in a cascading pattern.

Clean and Simple Delightful Decorations Ornament Christmas Card

I made this card a couple of days ago but just got around to posting it today. This is a clean and simple (CAS) card, one layer only. I stamped the ornament from Delightful Decorations in Versamark ink, then applied Heat and Stick Powder and heat set it. Next, I sprinkled on Romantic Red Glitter and shook off the excess.

Above the ornament, I stamped the string from Berry Christmas in Platinum Shimmer Paint that I sponged onto the stamp. At the bottom of the card, I tied a piece of Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, making a little loop on the front and attaching a Fire Rhinestone Circle Brad.

The card base is Gina K Luxury Base Weight White card stock.
