clean & simple sunday #25

So—-lots of new products coming out of Convention in New Orleans this weekend! I’m hearing about new shimmer card stock, fun and exciting new stamp sets and some fun new products like clear acetate paper and window dies as well as new colors of felt… I’m sure the new catalog will be something to pour over when it finally arrives!

In the mean time, I have been playing with the new colors I have in hand and enjoying a new stamp set I picked up as well. This set is not new to the catalog, its an oldie-but-a-goodie and its called Marvelous Marigolds

In this clean and simple design I focused on the white space and made sure to leave some to contrast these gorgeous, big flowers. I used a simple sugar card stock base, stamped the two larger flowers in Lido ink, and then one in Bellini ink. The solid flower I stamped in Burano ink and then the sentiment was stamped in Titan ink. I embellished the center of each flower with a tiny pearl, and that’s it! A very clean, simple card—very fresh!


  1. I’m really digging that Venetian color palette – beautiful colors!

  2. It really is a gorgeous group of colors! Wait ’til you see them in real life!

  3. I really love the colors and CAS look of this card! Nice job and great stamp set.

  4. Well Pitter, you’ve done it again!! Gorgeus …you make it all seem so easy and simple, but your talent for color and design are extraordinary!!
