Welcome to my Sunday series, affectionately known as Simple Sunday! The aim of this series is to showcase projects using minimal supplies, ideal for the beginner crafter or someone new to Stampin’ Up! Each project is a white card base with a 3×3 panel decorated using a single stamp set or die set. This week’s project features the Elegantly Said stamp set that you can purchase from the Annual Catalogue.
The cute little animals in this set are what drew me towards it in the Annual Catalogue. I’ve said previously that my son is a massive fan of penguins, so having a penguin included in the set was also a bonus. This is my first time using this stamp set as although I was instantly drawn towards it, I wasn’t sure how to use it on a card. When I hit blocks like this, I turn to my Simple Sunday template / style as it allows me to be minimalist and get the ideas flowing.
In the end, I made three different versions of the card using the bear, the kangaroo, and the penguin. All of them with blended backgrounds to help them ‘pop’ from the card base. I didn’t really need to do much more than that to the cards as the blended background gave them enough dimension (as well as added dimensionals). Very quick to make and can be a range of colours with the sentiments mixed up with the images to make numerous different variations.
But which one is your favourite? I think mine is the penguin, I love how he pops from the blue background.
