Simply Said

February 10, 2011 | 4 comments

I sat down earlier today to create a card for this weeks Inkspiration Colour Challenge #56 before it closes tonight. Here’s the colours provided for the Challenge.

These colours look gorgeous together, especially when Cherry Cobbler and Baja Breeze are favourite colours of mine. Adding Basic Black & Whisper White just top it off.

I wasn’t too sure what stamp set I was initially going to use but while flicking through the IB&C, hearts came to mind. At first I was thinking ‘I Heart Hearts’ but I wanted to use something new or neglected and that’s where ‘Simply Said’ comes in. I also though the Cherry Cobbler flowers over a Baja Breeze base heart would look really nice.

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve inked up my Simply Said stamp set. Are you the same? I guess when a stamp set has been around for a while and there are lots of newer ones we tend to use those and forget our older sets. That’s what I tend to do anyway.


This is my end creation using those gorgeous colours and neglected stamp set.


Stamp sets: Simply Said
Card: Basic Black, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze, Subtles Pattern Stack (Baja Breeze)
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler.
Accessories: Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder, Big shot, 1/4” Whisper White grosgrain ribbon, Matt Pack & Paper Piercing Tool, Stamp-a-ma-jig.


I’ll be posting up some blog candy a little later so come back for you chance to win.


Till next time…..

    Another lovely card!! I know what you mean by stamp sets that haven’t seen much ink. I have quite a few sets that I don’t seem to pull out very often. Might have to change that and have a play with some oldies 🙂

    What a beautiful Card Nikki! I like it very much. I know exactly what you mean about forgetting the older sets. I have quite a few of those. Thanks for inspiring me to look at them again!
