Clean & Simple

I have been feeling quite uninspired lately. I know the main reason was that my studio space (as I like to call it) was a complete disaster. Today I finally set about finding the table surface, and the floor, and some other organizational things. After that, I still didn't quite feel like being creative. So I went over to SCS to browse the forums. I came across this thread about the clean and simple style that still packs that wow punch. That has been the style that I ultimately lean towards the most. Finally, after that quick read, I sat down and just did whatever came first. I started with the star image from PaperTrey's Text Boxed. I stamped that with Moonlight White on black cardstock. Next, I brushed some white Pearl Ex powder over the image. Then, I inked up the "dream" stamp with versamark and stamped that all over the image. It's neat because it gives it the illusion of the kiss technique, except it's not backwards! For my patterned paper, I just stamped the two star images in that set all over the place, coated the whole paper with versamark, brushed more white pearl ex over it, and added it to the card base.

Stamps: Text Boxed
Ink: Moonlight White, Versamark, Silver
Paper: Black, White, Shimmer White
Accessories, etc.: pop dots, black ribbon, pearl ex powder


  1. I love your clean and simple style! Keep 'em coming!

  2. Love this card, so simple yet so detailed. I can't wait to try something similar with this set!
