At the Stampin’ Up 30th Anniversary OnStage event in November, they discussed getting back to basics with Simple Stamping.  Over the next several weeks, you will see some projects with this concept in mind.  I know, this is NOT a typical Cynthia kind of project.  And, full disclosure, it was a challenge for me to keep it simple.  The whole idea is to use just ink, stamps and paper.  Okay, I can do this…

The Flouring Phrases stamp set is a great option for a quick and easy card.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad to stamp the image and the used the Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends marker, along with the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends marker to add some color.

How easy was that!  And seriously, out the door with this card in a very short time.  Now, if you wanted to take it a little bit further…there are a lot of options.  I regress, okay, I leave it as it…she says a bit reluctantly. 😉
