Stampin’ Up! Iconic Occasions Sneak Peek Super Simple Saturday

Mornin’, y’all!  It’s Saturday and I realized I hadn’t done a Super Simple (Single Stamp Set) Saturday in quite a while!  So…I decided to do one today.  What better time of the year for a simple, quick and easy card?  Busy as we all are…I’m betting it’s gonna be a winner!

Sous and I cooked today – got my Chocolate Dipped Espresso Chocolate Chip Biscotti done.  Made a batch of Espresso Toffee Fudge.  And a batch of Almond Fudge.  That last one – tastes like heaven!  Looks like…well.  Not heaven.  I tried to dip it in melted Almond Bark (per the recipe) and….hmmm.  Not so bueno.  We’ll see if I can make it presentable!

Got more to do over the weekend and then hopefully I can get packages in the mail on Monday.  Fingers crossed for me, people!

One of the new Host Exclusive stamp sets in the 2017 Occasions catalog is called Iconic Occasions.  And it’s got a plethora of images and sentiments that will let you make all sorts of quick and easy cards.  Check it out!

I used it this time to make a quick get-well card.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week:


And my color scheme was inspired by the My Favorite Things color challenge.

I started with a Whisper White Note Card and Envelope.

To begin, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and stamped circles in Blushing Bride, Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green on a piece of Whisper White.  Except for the Blushing Bride circles, I stamped everything off once before stamping my card stock.

Then I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig again and added the thought bubble icons.  I used the same colors as the circles – but I didn’t stamp anything off.  Everything is full strength.

Finally, I added the sentiment in Garden Green with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I SNAILd the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added the Get Well sentiment in Pumpkin Pie and then used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add a little Blushing Bride band-aid over the top.

I SNAILd it to a Pear Pizzazz mat and into my Whisper White note card, popped the front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

For the matching Whisper White Envelope, I ran more little Iconic Occasions band-aids in Blushing Bride across the front…

…and repeated my circles on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this little set – it’s quite unassuming at first glance, but…it’s super versatile!  And the little icons are really cute!  Hope you like!

  1. What a cute card! Great take on the sketch and the colors are just perfect. 🙂 And anything dipped in chocolate is always presentable…so that’s my suggestion to fix it. 😉

    Clever use of the thought clouds. Maybe your sous-chef has a suggestion about the dippity do. Not that it would be so good for him!?!

  4. Very cute, and your chocolate goodies sound delicious!
