Today’s card, featuring the Blooming with Kindness stamp set from Stampin’ Up! (wood mount and clear mount) is a super quick, clean and simple card for those occasions when you just don’t have much time. That has definitely been the case around here this week as I prepared for Carter’s birthday party and also tried to make progress on the renovation of my home studio!

I began my card with a Whisper White card base. First, I inked up the leaf image from the Summer Silhouettes stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in Pear Pizzazz ink. I stamped off on a scrap of paper, then I stamped the leaf image in the bottom right corner of the card. I repeated that process again on the right side near the top of the card. Then I inked up the flower from Blooming with Kindness in Blushing Bride ink. I used a sponge dauber to add some Strawberry Slush ink to the center of the flower fading out toward the edges. Then I stamped the image between the two sets of leaves on the front of the card.
Next, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to place the “Thank You” greeting from the Blooming with Kindness stamp set near the flower image. I inked up the sentiment using Strawberry Slush ink, and stamped off on a scrap of paper before stamping the greeting on the front of the card.
I finished off the inside of my card by stamping the leaf image from Summer Silhouettes twice. I inked up my stamp in Pear Pizzazz and stamped in on the inside of the card. Next, I inked up the stamp a second time to avoid any harsh lines where the stamp had gone off the page. I stamped off on a scrap of paper and then stamped on the inside of the card again to give my image some added depth.
I was able to make a whole stack of these cards in about 15 minutes. They are lovely, but also very fast and convenient.
