WCS64

Creating simple cards is not always easy. I have been trying to create some cards with the Say It With Scallops stamp set for a Stamp-A-Stack. I want quick, easy, pretty cards. Is that too much to ask?


I am having difficulty making the cards with just a few layers. I decided to try using Beate's WSC64 sketch for the layout. I knew what I wanted to do with the center part, but my plan was to have a layer of More Mustard for the background. When I placed the center part on the mustard card stock, it looked so plain. That is where the kiwi layer came from. Oh well back to the drawing board.

Stamps: Say It With Scallops
Paper: More Mustard, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Haiku DP
Inks: So Saffron, Kiwi Kiss
Extras: 1/2", 1-1/4" & 1-3/8"circles, Scallop circle & edge punches, Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon, dimensionals

I know what you mean though. Sometimes planning for the stamp a stacks and classes can take hours just coming up with the ideas!
