This is the second card we made at stamp camp last week. It is a quick and easy card (also known as CAS or “Clean And Simple”). I showed you the card we made using the Trees For Sale stamp set and the Tree Lot Dies a couple of posts ago (you can see it HERE). That card took a bit of time so I decided to have the group make a simple but still beautiful card too.
I used the stamp set called Wisteria Wishes to make this card. This stamp set has coordinating dies called Wisteria Dies but we did not use them on this card. By the way, you can save 10% by purchasing the stamp set and dies in a bundle.
I started this card by stamping the branch in Old Olive ink on a 4 1/4″ x 3 1/8″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Then I stamped the first layer of the flowers using Highland Heather ink but first I stamped off on a piece of scrap paper and then onto the Very Vanilla card stock. By doing this, your ink will be a bit lighter than a normal stamping. Then I took the middle piece of the flower and stamped that using Highland Heather ink too. This gave the flowers a two toned look. I layered this on top of a piece of Old Olive cardstock and a piece of Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper. This paper is awesome. You can only buy it for $18 with an order of $150 or more and it contains 48 sheets in the pack! The card base was also Old Olive.

This is so beautiful, Susan! It is so elegant, and the DSP adds to the elegance. I know the stamp camp was a lot of fun for everyone!
This is so pretty. I love the simplicity that highlights those beautiful colors and forms
