clean & simple sunday no. 82

Today I’m taking part in the CAS-ual Friday’s clean & simple challenge for this week…


The theme is HUNGER GAMES and participants are being challenged to create a clean & simple card using at least one arrow.

I was really inspired to participate in this one because I’ve had a new stamp set from A Muse|Studio called I Was Here and I couldn’t wait to use it! I knew it would be perfect for this challenge.


I chose a base card in wheat and a stamped panel in sugar. I used ocean ink to stamp the sentiment and cut a cute little heart (the medium out of the heart trio die set) out of petite polka dot cherry. The arrow paper clip is from the hung up collection of cute clips at Stampin’ Up! and I finished off my design with a bit of onyx polka dot organdy ribbon. This stamp set does come with a few different arrow styles but I couldn’t come up with a nice, clean design using them, so after several attempts, I just decided to use that adorable paper clip.

There is still time to participate in this challenge and plenty of great inspiration over at the CAS-ual Friday’s blog! Enjoy!!
