Fresh Colors

When I found this color scheme on Pinterest, Hero Arts' Daisy and Bugs set was on my desk. The two go together like, well, daisies and bugs.

Stamping outline stamps with fun colors (instead of stamping them in black and coloring them in) is an excellently clean-and-simple way to design a card. Two shades of green (Memento pear tart, Hero Arts lime) and two shades of aqua (Hero Arts tide pool and Antigua) give this card such a fresh and fun look!

Tomorrow, I'll share a card made with this same set but using the dies with it. Thank you for the lovely feedback on my Dies Go CAS series.

I hope all of you are enjoying this final week of anticipation of Christmas. Our church had its cantata today, and oh, how uplifting and beautiful! I've worked on addressing Christmas cards most of today, and we FINALLY decorated our upstairs trees. Needless to say, we're feeling festive around here.

Peace, love, hope, and joy,

stamps: Hero Arts Daisy and Bugs, Papertrey Keep It Simple Birthday

  1. Duh! Color inks instead of coloring. My guess is that coloring for some people is therapy as much as a design choice. I'm not good at it. This is why I start my day with you, Susan. I feel much smarter already and it's only 7:00 a.m.!

    1. Thanks, Janet! So glad you find Simplicity helpful!

  2. The colors are so fresh and pretty.

    1. Thanks, Sheila. I think so, too. Makes me think of spring in the depth of winter.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
