Good morning good morning and welcome to the brink of the weekend! Do you have some fun plans? We’re going to do a little tidying this weekend – Wayne doesn’t know it yet and it’s likely to be traumatic (Goodwill is involved and that just hurts him to his core). So…think good thoughts for him making it thru a little…purging! 😉
I’ve got a cool little card for you today – I’d call it clean-and-simple! Since we didn’t get a chance to make it together yesterday, I took a minute (literally!) to put together a short little video on how to make it – the link will be at the end!
I used the Brightest Beauty stamp set to create a very summer-y card (as opposed to the more Fall-like card I made with it before – you can see THAT one right here!). And I pulled out the amazing Fabulous Frames die set (an a la carte set from the Annual Catalog), too. Take a look-see:
Right? Clean and crisp and summer-y!
The color palette has a lot to do with that – and it’s from The Paper Players color challenge this week!
I started by adhering a piece of Tahitian Tide paper from the 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to the front of my Tahitian Tide card base using Liquid Glue.
I placed a piece of Basic White cardstock in the Stamparatus and used it to stamp the two-step image from Brightest Beauty. First I stamped the berries/flowers in Tahitian Tide. Then I used the second plate to add the leaves and stems in Parakeet Party.
Note: if you have any issues with “bubbly” images when you stamp – know that that is a “thing” with some stamps and some of our colors (it’s a chemical make-up thing, I think). If you see it – ink your pad and then use a Sponge Dauber (with the same color ink on it) to tap-tap-tap all over the stamp before you stamp your cardstock. That ought to fix it for you! 🙂
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the front of the card base.
I cut the largest frame from the Fabulous Frames dies in Basic White and then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it over the art panel.
On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Brightest Beauty sentiment in Tahitian Tide ink and cut it out with a Stylish Shapes label die.
Using Stampin’ Dimensionals – and a little Liquid Glue – I adhered it to the card front.
I added a couple of 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots to the sentiment label.
I wanted to keep it clean-and-simple ALL THE WAY but…I just HAD to add some Brushed Brass Butterflies.
And that was it for the card front. I mean – it’s PRETTY clean-and-simple…right?!? 😉
On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Brightest Beauty in Tahitian Tide on a Basic White panel. Over the top, I stamped the texture image from the set in stamped-off-once Parakeet Party. Then I added a Brushed Brass Butterfly! 😉
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic White mat and then into the Tahitian Tide card base and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the texture image from Brightest Beauty in full-strength Parakeet Party on the front…
…and more of the Tahitian Tide 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I do LOVE this Brightest Beauty stamp set – even without using the bundled Golden Beauty dies!! It’s so pretty and – as you can see – pretty stinkin’ versatile! Don’t forget the a la carte dies – like the Stylish Shapes and Fabulous Frames sets – in the Annual Catalog – they’re real “workhorses” for your crafting projects!
I hope you like! And – here’s the link to the short video I put together so you can see how to make it yourself!

Finn Fan Fix
Finn has been right all this time.
Figments ARE real!! 😳😳😳
AND – they ARE invisible to all but canines!
We got proof the other day.
What we’re not TOO sure of is…are these the prints of ONE quad-pedal figment? Or….TWO bi-pedal figments? Does anyone even KNOW if figments have two legs or four?
GASP – what if they only have ONE leg and this is an entire frappe of figments!? I Googled it – that’s what a group of figments is called. A frappe.
It’s still a mystery wrapped in a conundrum….only dogs know for sure – and Finn ain’t talkin’! Pretty sure it’s in the dog-code.
But – he IS vindicated!!
