Super Simple Cards

Hello Paper Crafters!! Today I have some super simple cards I made while watching the Super Bowl. I am not a big football fan but even I know that was a pretty boring game and so all the better for me to be stamping. That’s when I’m in my happy place. I chose Dandelion Wishes and Bokeh Dots because they go together so well. These cards were effortless.

Dandelion Wishes

The Dandelion Wishes stamp set is what I call The Perfect Stamp Set. It has 3 beautiful images of dandelions and 3 sentiments, so you only need this one set to create beautiful cards, perfect! The style of the images is elegant, playful and simple and the fonts are a gorgeous mix of san serif and cursive. The cursive font is so pretty and fits the mood of this stamp set perfectly. I love it when fonts are mixed.

Bokeh Dotssuper simple cards

The Bokeh Dots is a stamp set that contains 2 background stamps. One is the typical dots (you think of when you hear the word Bokeh) and the other is a star burst. You can create soft and subtle backgrounds with the two bokeh stamps. If you don’t know what Bokeh is you can read about it here. This is also one of our patent pending Distinktive stamp sets. The surface of the rubber is etched in a way that the ink is laid down in different opacities which create an image with lots of depth and realism.

Lasting Lily Stamp Set
