Fun Times

Let the Fun begin!

Here is a super simple card I made using a fun colour combination and a new stamp set I got from Simon Says Stamp recently.  It has a great retro look to it.

I wanted a nice, flat card easy for mailing so I began by stamping the sentiment from Hero Arts and masked it.  This set comes with a solid stamp so I began with that first, inking it with Memento Green and Martha Stewart blue.  I used my MISTI to get a nice, solid stamping.  
Lastly, I randomly stamped the leaf outlines all over my card front.
Easy, right?

 
Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES

The Male Room- SPOTS and STRIPES 



Sisters of Craft- ANYTHING GOES


I so appreciate YOU!  Thanks for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Hero Arts, SSS/ Memento ink/ Martha Stewart/ post it note(for masking)/ MISTI

I've seen a lot of this stamp lately but the way you used it gives me pause to buy it. I love the retro look you gave it, Karen.

I've been eyeing this set since SSS released it but it's been out of stock when I've wanted to order. I like it's CAS style. Nice work Karen.... very crisp!
