LOVE THE SIMPLE DESIGN!!!

So I've had this stamp set for some time now, Six Sided Sampler.  I decided that for this stamp camp I wanted to try and use only one stamp set on each card.  So this is the design I came up with.  I wanted to showcase the bold pattern with the gold.  I JUST LOVE IT!


The background color is Blackberry Bliss...one of the new 14-16 In Colors.  I just love how the Gold Encore Ink stands out against this hue.  I also like that the Blackberry Bliss isn't red, isn't purple, but is truly a deep rustic color.  This makes it perfect for a neutral card.


To save paper, you stamp your saying on the mat and then punch out of the middle.  The top picture is what the back looks like and the bottom picture is what you have for your focal point.


The background was created very easily with the gold ink pad.  I just love the way it pops on the blackberry bliss background....WOWZERS!  As you can see we dry embossed the gold shiny cardstock to give it some volume as well.


Below is the finished card!  All the elements come together to create a great THANKS YOU Card!


Stampin' Up! makes everything so easy to coordinate.  From our paper to ink and then to accessories.... it really is easy!  You don't have to worry about if the colors match...you know they will!  And with all the coordinating stamp sets and punches, you're guaranteed to find the perfect project to use them on!
