Clean and Simple

Clean and simple is not easy.  It’s difficult to create a card where you have just enough and not too much.  My card is mostly white except for the butterfly and sentiment.  Dimension is created with layers and texture.  It came together very quickly once I decided to use the Floral Fest stamp set.  I stamped the flower image two times with Whisper White Craft ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  The outer layer is punched with the Large Scallop punch and the next flower layer is hand cut with paper snips.  LOVE the Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  It adds so much without being too glitzy.  Click the image to enlarge and see the Iridescent Ice sparkle.  Here’s a sneak peak of one of the new In Colors Island Indigo.  The butterfly and sentiment are stamped in this new In Color.  The punch used for the sentiment is the Decorative Label punch.  Click here to see how to punch.

Summer Mini Sneek Peak

I’m so excited about the new 2011 summer mini.  There are so many new items.  Two of the newest punches are the Triple Layer Punches.  Create three coordinated punch images with just one punch.  The images look beautiful layered together or separately.  There is also a new textured embossing folder – Flower Garden.  I used both these new products in my card below.  I hope you can see I used Dazzling Diamonds on the textured image.  The flower image is gorgeous!  I also used my new Doily Triple Layer Punch to create a border along the side of the card.  I punched one image in white and another in black.  The other new item I used is the frame for the sentiment from the Four Frames set.  This set is available through the end of the month and will not be available until July with the launching of the new catalog.

The sketch from The Paper Players inspired me to create my card.

Here’s my card.
