Soft and Simple


100_4509         Again in need of some quick thank you notes, I pulled out the much neglected Simply Soft set.  I love the Two-Step stamping sets.  Most all of these sets have that soft watercolor feel to them.  The sponging on these simple little notes give a serene feel to the card.  When I started sponging the background, I wasn’t quite sure just where I was headed.  It all sort of took on a direction of its own and I just went with it.  I love how it turned out and I was able to turn out six of these 3”x3” note cards in very little time.  Also, I was able to use up more little scraps of card stock that has been stashed in my scrap box for a year (or more).  LOVE when I can do THAT!!

     I, once again, used my Simply Scored Tool.  I’ve been using that a lot lately…and my Diagonal Plate accessory just arrived today…YAY.  Needless to say, I’m 100_4519sure I’ll be using my Simply Scored Tool a bit more in the coming days!  Anyway, I created the cute little envelopes to go with the note cards.  These are made using a 6”x6” piece of DSP.  I can’t wait to use the Diagonal Plate to make these.  It was super simple without the plate.  I can only imagine how much simpler it will be with the plate…hehe…can’t wait! 

     Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to make a handmade envelope.  Warning:  they can be addictive! :)

  1. These are super Leslee! I sponge the same way - no direction, lol, but it is amazing where they head sometimes!! Been away at Stamp Camp, so sorry for the lack of comments lately *mwah*
