Clean and Simple Cards

Hi! I have two cards to share today because I kept my style clean and simple! I picked my color scheme first... Bermuda Bay, Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, and Barely Banana. Very bright and pretty! Here is what I came up with...

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: The More the Merrier hostess set
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Cameo Coral, Barely Banana, Going Gray classic inks; Jet Black StazOn
Paper: Whisper White, Cameo Coral, Barely Banana, Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery cardstock
Accessories: paper piercer, White Signo gel pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Certainly Celery 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Clips Assortment, Aqua Painter

I figured I'd add a sentiment to the inside when I'm ready to use it... I watercolored the birds in that pretty new color, Bermuda Bay! Once they were done, I added some Cameo Coral to the hearts and also added glitter to each one with my Crystal Effects. Next, I had to decorate the card base... since I wanted to incorporate all these colors, I thought it would be simplest just to cut strips! I added a little faux stitching to the top and bottom of each panel, and along the bottom of the birdy strip. I added the cute little clip and ribbon and adhered everything to the cardbase... pretty simple I think!

Since I still had everything out, I decided to make another card using this color scheme... here it is:

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Circle Circus set, Hope Happens set
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral Classic inks
Paper: Whisper White, Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, Bermuda Bay cardstock
Accessories: So Saffron wide grosgrain ribbon, Dimensionals

For this card, I stamped random circles from Circle Circus onto Whisper White cardstock. I matted it out and added a little ribbon to the side. I stamped and matted my sentiment and then stuck everything down to the card base! It was one of the easiest cards I've ever made and I still like how it came out!

Well, I hope you all enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping in!
