Sending Saturday hugs to you!

It’s been a while since I created a card with stamps, paper and ink!

The making of this card

I still have the first card I stamped… scattered stamped pumpkins on a cardstock base with a “thank you” sentiment.  No die cuts, no embellishments, only  a rubber stamp, paper and ink. That card came to mind as I was making today’s card.

The Eden’s Garden stamp set is one of Stampin’ Up!’s Distinktive Stamps.  They’re amazing. The rubber is cut in a way that  different opacities are created on one stamp for a dimensional image.  I thought this stamp set would be perfect for a clean and simple stamps, paper and ink card.

The most time consuming part of making this card was deciding on a color.  Pantone just announced their color of the year.  This year’s color is called Very Peri.  It’s periwinkle blue with undertones of purple.  Very Peri gave me the inspiration to use Gorgeous Grape.  I mixed in some Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive and stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

I couldn’t resist giving this card a little sparkle and accomplished that by scattering a few 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.  Love3 them!

So, find a beautiful stamp, add some ink, cut a few layers and create something clean and simple to send hugs to someone special.

…the only limitation is your imagination!
