Simple All-Occasion Card

Hello Card

Hi All!

First, alert! Simon Says Stamp is celebrating their 14th birthday by having 14% off all their branded products! Now through Sunday, use code FOURTEENYEARS at checkout. When they had a similar sale over the summer, I listed all my Simon Says Stamp favorites. I was just lamenting that I spent over $100 there a couple of days ago. You know the routine… I just need this one die. Maybe I’ll do a haul next week. 🙂

Today I used the Altenew Halftone Hello set, which I also used on THIS CARD. The stamp itself gives you a pretty ombre look, without having to shade anything manually. I added a couple of extra details with glossy accents and a Wink of Stella clear pen:

    It’s always good to have a few simple cards up your sleeve for those unexpected occasions. Thanks for sharing this one with us. I also like the way you showed us how you positioned your clouds and other elements on the card, That was very helpful. And I must remember to drag out my stamp-a-ma-jig again. The MISTI gets most of my attention these days!

    I love this card. Cute, colorful, easy to mail – the perfect card. I was glad to see you use the stamp-a-ma-jug. I love my Misti but sometimes I find the Stamp-a-ma-jig just perfect.

    Beautiful, simple and fun. Love the Ombre effect on your sentiment, the sun with it’s rosy cheeks just looks adorable.
    Hugs,
    Maria.

    Love that you included the measurements in Imperial & Metric! Is this a new feature or have I been missing this the last 2 years?

      It’s new! I started a few weeks ago when a few members suggested it.
