Simply Fabulous


Recently I was looking through my “to use” basket on my crafting desk. I was happy to find this stamp set “Simply Fabulous”.

I absolutely love this stamp set and was happy to begin creating with it. To get your stamp set click the link.below.


As I started to plan my cards I decided that I wanted simple cards with only a layer or two.  I also wanted to use the in color  designer series paper specifically Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party, and Sweet Sorbet. Of course I was determined to use the nice big bold sentiment “just saying Hello”.

I remembered that I had been contemplating  different ways to use the in-colors that will be retiring now at the end of April 2023. Suddenly the light bulb went on.

Here is the first card I created.

I used Fresh Freesia cardstock and made my card base. This would be a top folding A2 card that fits perfectly in a medium envelop.

Here are other materials I used.

  • A strip of Highland heather cardstock from my scrap bin. It measured ¼”x5-1/4”
  • A strip of the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper from the Sale a-bration catalog (This DSP will be unavailable after February 28, 2023.
  • A piece of Highland Heather cardstock measuring 3-1/2”x3-1/4”.
  • A piece of Basic White cardstock measuring 3-1/4”x3”. This is what Istamped on
  • Small piece of Gorgeous Grape ribbon. Twine or any purple ribbon would work.
  • The sprig of leaves stamp from the Simply Fabulos stamp set (The one that has two pointy leave on each side and one on the top).
  • Soft Succulent Ink to create the wreath. (This is also an in-color that will be retiring at the end of April 2023.)
  • A small scrap of Basic White cardstock that allows me to stamp three of the larger flower.
  • Highland Heather Ink
  • A small strip 1-1/2”x1/4” that I stamped Thank You in Highland Heather ink.
