You Are Amazing

The Clear and Simple Stamps Collection 3 release review continues today with sets featuring flowers and butterflies. You won’t see any flowers on my card, but I used one of the floral sets in Collection 3 to create a single layer masculine card inspired by the current Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger challenge. As soon as I saw the cool, graphic rug in the inspiration photo (I've shared it at the bottom of the post), I knew I wanted to create a card based on the shapes and colors.

I used a leafy stem image from the Flowers set to stamp a series of repeated images along the left side of a cream kraft cardstock panel using inks that match several colors from the rug. To add interest, I alternated the orientation and spacing of the stem from line to line. I stamped the “you are amazing” sentiment from the All Occasions 2 set in the open space on the right side of the cardfront. The sentiment’s accented with a single copper brad.

For more inspiration using the flower and butterfly sets from Collection 3, don’t miss what the rest of the CSS team is sharing today. Here’s where to find them:
