These one-layer cards are 4.25" square and super simple. My thank you card stash was depleted by the holidays, and I needed some quick and pretty cards. This stamp by Hero Arts begged to be used, and who am I to argue with a stamp? They are tenacious, as anyone who's tried not to buy one can attest.
I used SU's soft subtles and cool caribbean to create the color assortment. Here's another case for having tons of bling lying around, but obviously you could just buy clear bling and color with Sharpies or Bics or Copics if you want. The sentiment is from my complimentary Thank You set from the nice folks at Clear and Simple Stamps.
Simplicity Tip: Don't be afraid to be a MOTO. MOTO is an acronym from my husband's Air Force days and stands for Master of the Obvious. The term is used as an insult in the military aviator world, but it deserves better. Too many times, I stare at a stamp and wonder how to make it look special or creative. When I try to force the image to do something other than the obvious, sometimes I just waste a bunch of paper. Cards like those in today's set use the stamp in a very obvious way. But if you get good impressions, make smart color choices, and embellish just a bit, obvious can be special and creative, too. Embrace your inner MOTO, and make something obvious yet beautiful. You have my permission.
Here's cool caribbean.
And pale plum.
See. Channeling your inner MOTO can result in something beautiful.
Make Monday a great day!
