Woo hoo!!! I am so excited for today because Day 3 of Neat and Tangled Release Week is all about the Flower Medallion Building stamps!! Andddd this may be one of my new favorite sets. 🙂

I ended up creating a flat one layer card because the individual elements offered in this set are so unique, they really stand on their own. And there are so many incredible ways you can layer these stamps!! It’s SO MUCH FUN to create with!!!! I kept the color palette to simple blues and greens, but the possibilities (rainbow ya’ll!!!!!!) are endless! And then there are the big bold capital sentiments that really perfect this card.

Hey there PTI lovers! Today is another wonderful celebration of Papertrey through the years and today is 2009! I am working with the classic Fruitful set below:

The Vault - Fruitful Stamp Set

I have two cards for you today using these adorable little fruits. And the first one is inspired by my childhood and something my hubby calls me, “Georgia Peach.” 🙂

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Design Team Fruitful

I couldn’t fight the urge to let that little peach shine on a card of it’s own and it’s now one of my favorite cards ever lol. Simple? Oh yes. Darling? To me, YES! 🙂 The natural twine bow added a bit of a hometown farmer’s market feel and the sentiment is just beautiful.

For my second project I created a cascade of deliciousness down my card. I seriously adore this set. Do you all have this one?? I’d love to see all of your creations with it! I accented my sentiment using Soft Stone ink and stamping the “made with love” circles in a few areas around the cascade.

Well hey there folks! How has your summer been going so far?? It’s been PRETTYYYYYYY hot here lately so I am glad to be hiding out in the craft room and setting it up from our move. Today I have a one layer leafy green birthday card for you using Lil Inker goodies from the last release.

I masked off a little portion to fit my stamped sentiment and then placed all of my stamped leaves around the edge to create a definitive border.

Hey everyone! This is my second blog post for today, check out my first one with a couple simple birthday cards here. 🙂

One of my 2016 New Years Resolutions (I know, some of you might think they are pointless or dumb hehe) is to start entering card making challenges! So today is my entry into CASology’s Week 179: Simple challenge. Here it is:

This was a really fun  CASology challenge for me because I typically find myself adding mountains of layers on my cards, so trying to pair everything down and just get to the heart of it was definitely a welcomed challenge. 🙂
