Happy Sunday!  We have a new challenge for you over at the Paper Players.  Our very creative Joanne is our host this week.  She has a Clean and Simple Challenge for us mixed with some fruit and berries.  You can choose either or both for your card bur remember the Clean and Simple card rules.  Use minimal layers with little or no embellishments and create your card with lots of white space.

There’s nothing like a ripe, sweet strawberry, especially during the summer season.  My card today is one of those ripe, sweet strawberries just for you.

To have some fun with Joanne’s Clean and Simple Theme Challenge, I chose to use stamps from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set. The sentiment, leaves and flowers are stamped with Soft Suede ink and shaded using Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Mossy Meadow Blends.  The strawberry is a two step stamp.  I stamped the outline image with Soft Suede ink.  The layer stamp is stamped with Real Red ink and nicely fills in the strawberry.

I added a lot of color to my stamped images which helped show off all of the white space on this single layer card.  I refrained from adding any embellishments since I did have a lot of color. This kept my card clean and simple without a doubt.

So, find the freshest fruit in your stamp stash, add lots of color to a white card base and create something clean and simple to link up with us over at the Paper Players.

…the only limitation is your imagination!
