Here we are… Week #20 in the Creative Juice series. Today’s sketch fell nicely into the Flash Card category too. I used the new Share What You Love bundles to create this card but any stamp set will work! Get creative!
Each week I serve up a big glass of CREATIVE JUICE to get your creative juices flowing. Let me share this week’s card inspiration.
- Get creative with your color combinations.
- The flower could be a punched image, a die cut image, a sentiment, anything!
You can print out the sketches each week OR you can save them to your computer. By doing this you will have sketch ideas at your fingertips, whenever you need them. Just click the pic to download or print it. Remember, you can always find them here if you go to the ‘Categories’ (located on the right side bar) and click on Creative Juice.
Here is what I came up with for today’s CREATIVE JUICE sketch…
I love that this week’s sketch layout was perfect for a Flash Card.
This card came together SO fast it’s almost embarrassing. I love the watercolor wash stamp that comes in this bundle. It gives just the right amount of color in the background. I inked the stamp and stamped it off twice before I stamped on the cardstock.
The Hardwood background was stamped off twice as well. It made for a very soft image.
Linen thread always looks good with Crumb Cake cardstock.
Here are the measurements for my I’m Lucky to Have a Friend Like You Flash Card but remember, these measurements are not set in stone. Get creative with your measurements!
- Crumb Cake – 11″ x 4 ¼”, score and fold at 5 ½”
- Blushing Bride – 2 ¾” x 4 ¼”
- Very Vanilla – 2 ½” x 3 ½”
A short and sweet supply list. Don’t have the hardwood stamp? Choose a different background stamp OR use an embossing folder. Want to order any of the supplies needed for my Flash Card? Click a pic!

No camping for the Stewarts this weekend. Ginny has a vocal recital on Sunday and we wouldn’t miss that for the world. Plus, today Mr. Awesome and I celebrate 27 years of marital bliss. We’re not big into celebrations or anniversary gifts. We might go out to dinner or something. Not a day goes by that he doesn’t tell me he loves me, or that tell him that he’s my best friend. I am so blessed to have such a fabulous guy!
The new Stampin’ Up catalogs will be arriving in mailboxes soon! If you placed an order here on Simply Simple Stamping in 2018*, I have placed an order for a new catalog to be mailed to you. Yay! I can’t wait for you to see all the new stamps, accessories and COLORS waiting for you!
I have had a lot of requests for the new catalog tabs. I LOVE that you guys are so excited about them! I have been working on the new tabs and a video sharing some great new tips on adhering the tabs to make it easier. Here’s the deal…. Stampin’ Up doesn’t allow us to show the inside of the catalog until June 1st. In the video, obviously I am showing inside pages of the catalog so that means you will have to wait just a little bit longer. June 6th to be exact. I think what I have for you will be worth the wait though! Stay tuned!!!
*Orders placed from January 1 – April 30, 2018
