clean & simple sunday no. 104

I’m away at the A Muse Studio National Conference in Santa Fe, NM! This wonderful consultant event is not to be missed! I’m getting all kinds of great training for my business and learning new stamping techniques to bring back to share with all of you! (not to mention lots of free stamp sets, tons of make & takes and oodles of fun with my fellow consultants!) I’ll be heading home tomorrow with all the scoop on the upcoming A|S Holiday Catalog, but in the mean time I do have a clean and simple Sunday card to share…

CSS-104_MiniBlooms_wreathYes, this card also features the Mini Blooms stamp set from A Muse Studio (I think the last several weeks have featured this same set, but see how versatile it is?! This is one set everyone should have in their collection—it’s THAT useful!)

To create the wreath design, I used one of my circle dies to trace a partial circle in pencil on my base panel. I then stamped the leaf cluster in grass ink, working my way around the circle. The pencil line is the perfect guide to help keep the shape of my wreath relatively even. I then stamped some of the little dots in blueberry ink (ha!) to look like little blueberry clusters. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Birthday stamp set and I stamped that in Versamark ink on a strip of vellum card stock and then heat embossed it in silver. I wrapped this strip around the front of my panel and used adhesive on the back to hold it in place. The only embellishment on this one is a wrap of toffee twine and a little bow to finish it off!

I know it’s a little early but can you picture this in red & green as a Christmas card?!?!  How about something like this?

MiniBloom-xmas SwapThese were my swap cards for National Conference. I brought a bunch of these with me to swap with other consultants in return for the gift of their “little masterpieces” so I’ll have a whole bunch of new samples to share with you at your next workshop!
