Hello crafty friends! It’s Blog Hop Day 1 for the brand spankin’ new Crafty Hugs release from Simon Says Stamp. My cards today feature taking really simplified approaches to using background stamps!
My first card features the gorgeous So Beautiful 6 x 6 Cling Stamp. I decided rather than try to get all fancy, I’d just stamp in in the same color onto the same color of cardstock for a cool monotone look.
For my second card, black ink on kraft cardstock created an elegant, understated sympathy card, and it features a pre-printed sentiment from the Reverse Sympathy Sentiments set.
And finally, I used the Peony Bouquet for my third card project, again using the same ink and cardstock color to create a monotone look.
Here is my video tutorial showing you these cards projects:
