#Simplestamping Saturday Wonderful Romance. OK, I accept that I used this stamp set yesterday too, but I like to show that you can use the same products for different projects. All my #Simplestamping projects start with a simple card, using a Note Card and Envelope. I then step the project up for a more Casual and then and Avid Crafter. Using the same layout and adding extra products and techniques. This is a great way to see how your projects can adapt as you add more items to your stash.
The Simple, quick version uses just one ink pad, Fresh Fig, and some Blender Pens. These pens come in a pack of three, so are great for splitting with friends, or why not have a crafting evening? I picked up extra ink from the ink pad and just shaded the flowers and small leaves in the image. Very easy and quick.
For the Casual version I added some Designer Series Paper, although in this case, vellum, and a coloured card base. I added the Petal Pink ink for the ‘sprinkles’ and coloured the image with Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends. The Combo packs mean you get the light and dark of each colour, but only need one item code. The Braided Linen is from the Autumn/Winter Favourites list. I love that you get a more solid bow, but can fray the ends really easily.
For the Avid version I added some heat embossing, a die cut and some gold metallic pearls. I used the same Braided Linen, but wove it into the die cut before tying the bow. Did you notice that the bow is in the same place on the card as in the previous version? I have not used the metallic pearls enough, but they add a very special feel to projects.
