Happy Saturday!  I hope your week was fun and you made time for your stamps, ink and paper. It was a busy week at Stampin’ Up!  The public launch of the new Annual Catalog, two new fabulous promotions and an unprecedented Paper Pumpkin Monthly Kit offer.  Lots of good stuff happening.  Speaking of good stuff, today’s post is a clean and simple card using stamps, ink and paper.

I’m featuring the Elegantly Said stamp set which is part of the Simply Elegant Suite on pages 68 and 69 of the new catalog. The elegant greetings pair beautifully with the floral, flourish, and border images. Look at the amazing detail in the stamped images.  There are 11 cling rubber stamps in the set.  The mixed font sentiments are appropriate for just about any occasion.  This card is “quick and easy” without a doubt.

Here’s a stamping tip: When stamping with a very detailed stamp and a clear block, lightly tap the stamp 3 to 4 times to your ink pad then stamp your image applying even pressure but not too much pressure.  The details will stamp clearly.  I used my Stamparatus for this card.

So, get yourself an elegant stamp set, stamp a flourish image or two, add a little gold dot and create something graceful!

…the only limitation is your imagination.
