I just love the look of white on white and couldn’t resist doing another one. This is made with Confetti White, popped up with dimensionals and scored with SU’s new scoring tool. The flowers are from Bordering on Romance, embossed with pewter embossing powder and watercolored, then popped up. Sweet and simple.

For the workshop this month, I pulled out a old favorite and a new one from the SAB catalog (goes live in 3 days!). The first card is a Vintage Vogue CAS card, white on white card stock and several inks: Wisteria Wonder, Pretty in Pink, Pear Pizzaz, So Saffron and Concord Crush for the sentiment (Teeny Tiny Wishes). The next card is a stepped up version, using the new large sizzlit die from the mini, Paper Doily, in Pink Pirouette. I cut out two flowers and a dot and popped them up with a dimensional, well a quarter of a dimensional – can’t be wasteful! We didn’t make this one in the workshop as there were too many people to fuss with it, which is a good thing!

The second one features the stamp set Fresh Vintage, which is a set you can get when you order $50 of product, and Every Day Enchantment designer series paper, another freebie. The base is Crumb Cake, with Very Vanilla, Peach Parfait and Pool Party. Inks are Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. I had to keep both projects simple due to the size of the workshop, but as I’ve said before, I love simple and I like the way these turned out. Can’t go wrong with our beautiful vintage sets!

Sometimes we stampers joke that the more layers on your card, the more we love you. But if you get a card with no layers, you’re still loved. These cards are CAS – clean and simple. Two of them have a little layering, but one has no layers at all – very clean and very simple, but still nice. It can almost be more of a challenge to make a beautiful card with no layers than one with lots of layers, kind of like writing something short and concise, or speaking without rambling.

The first: Fabulous Florets on Whisper White. I used markers on the stamps, then Aqua Painters to color in the petals.

The second: Open Sea. I made the little background part by inking an acrylic block and using it as a stamp.

The third: Thoughts & Prayers. I sponged the background and inked the stamp with markers on Confetti Cream.

I hope you like them!

This is another CAS card, no layers, which means it was quick too. The cardstock is Confetti Cream, sponged with some Night of Navy inside an oval template, which I cut with the Coluzzle (too bad we don’t sell it anymore, it’s a good tool). Then I pulled out a great stamp set from several years ago called Schooner and stamped the ship. Added the sentiment from Sincere Salutations in Cherry Cobbler and that was it. It’s nice for a guy – no frou frou.

Unfortunately we all need sympathy cards. I kept these clean and simple (or CAS in stampese). The base of all three is Confetti White and so is the front piece. I used Close as a Memory and Watercolor Trio (both retired) with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive ink. Dimensionals under the front piece give it a little depth.
