CAS Love for the Paper Players

I love Clean and Simple (CAS) cards.  They are the easiest to make and often, in my opinion, the prettiest.  I don't know about you but I often find myself "planning" my cards in my head during the craziness of the day.  Yesterday was no exception, but this time I actually pulled myself off the couch and acted on my ideas : )

I wanted to make something with clean lines and monochromatic and I wanted to use some of my Sale-a-bration stuff.  With Valentine's Day quickly approaching I couldn't resist the little heart stamp in the "Pretty Petites" stamp set.

Pretty "Pretty Petites" monochromatic card

Then I realised that this card fits with this week's Paper Players challenge:

Sweet!  To create the "block" I used Primrose Petals and stamped the image four times before re-inking.  I used stamped images 1, 2 and 4.  I really like stamping off to create monochromatic cards because I know that the colours will match exactly.....because it's all the same palette....that made more sense in my head than in writing, sorry : )

Stampin' Up, of course, has made things even easier by having a coordinating punch, the Petite Curly Label punch, to go with the Pretty Petites stamp set.  The "love" from the "Fabulous Phrases" stamp set fit perfectly between the little brackets and I couldn't resist adding a little bling in the form of a Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

Remember, you can get the Pretty Petites or the Petite Curly Label Punch FREE with a $60 purchase...or get both when you spend $120!

Happy Stamping!

Today’s In-Colour is “Rococo Rose”.  I love how delicate it is while still be fairly saturated.....does that make sense?  It’s a little like...
