My CAS butterfly card for Watercooler Wednesday was inspired by the colors of Global Design Project's CASE the designer, Steffi Helmschrott's, card:
stamp sets - Watercolor Wishes, Papillon Potpourri, Botanical Blooms, Touches of Texture; ink - Sahara Sand, Tip Top Taupe, Pear Pizzazz, Versamark; Stampin' Emboss powder - gold card stock - Whisper White thick; other tools - Big Shot with Botanical Builder framelits, heat gun, embossing buddy, masking tape, Post-It® notes
Four stamp sets, four ink pads and multiple tools for a one-layer, two-color clean and simple design that took more than 30 minutes to complete after thinking for two days. On the other hand, only one stamp set and two ink pads for Christmas in July at Stamp Ink Paper using Stephanie's sketch from Jingle Belles, which came together in about 15 minutes as soon as I decided on the designer series paper:
stamp set - Time of Year (hostess); ink - Real Red, Garden Green; Stampin' Write markers - Real Red, Garden Green; card stock - Garden Green, Very Vanilla, Real Red; paper - This Christmas specialty designer series, Delicate White Doilies; embossing folder - Holly; punches - 3/4" circle, 1" circle
No wonder I struggle with Clean and Simple!
