Hi All!  Today I want to share a little secret with you.  Everyone can make beautiful handcrafted greeting cards with just stamps, ink, and paper.  I made three cards – from simple and easy to more embellished using just one stamp set, two colors of card stock, three embellishments and four ink pads!  In each of the three examples below I used the same items, just adding a few new elements each time to create a new look.  All the items used can be ordered from my online store.  If you were to signup as a new Demonstrator you can get all the items used and more, up to $125 value, for just $99!  Sign up by July 30th and you will also receive an Ink Pad Assortment (10 pads), normally $67.50,  FREE!  That’s a total of $192.50 in products for just $99!  Now that’s a GREAT deal!  Click here to learn more about joining my team.

All three cards below were made using the same stamp set, inks and paper.  A supply list is at the end of this post.

Abstract Impressions 1

This card was made using Stampin Up! Whisper White cardstock,  Abstract Impressions stamp set, and ink pads in Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green.  A very simple and elegant card that is so easy to make.

Abstract Impressions 2

Build on the basic card above by adding a pop of color using the coordinating two step stamps from the Abstract Impressions set with Blueberry Bushel and Mossy Meadow ink.  Create a bit more interest by using the Tailored Tag punch and adhering it to the card with Stampin Dimensionals.

Abstract Impressions 3

You can really jazz up the card by using Balmy Blue cardstock that has been embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder and adding a bit of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  The Whisper White cardstock has been trimmed down to allow the blue card base to show.
