Super easy cards! - Friends Are like Seashells stamp set

I love stamping with friends and every week I'm lucky enough to get together with a very few stampers to chat and enjoy a morning beverage/snack at our local coffee shop.  Last week I made SIX cards!  Yes, while eating and chatting and stamping in less than two hours. I made them all with the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set which has 23 images, AMAZING die cuts and a coordinating 3D embossing folder.  I didn't even stamp much for these cards. . .I just used ONE die cutting and ONE embossing folder for a simple and elegant look. Let me know how you like the cards and how I did with my first blog video!

StampingPals Challenge #12 - Favorite Technique - Darling Donkeys & Approaching Perfection

  Are you enjoying Stampin' Up!'s Saleabration??  I am loving it!  This card uses TWO FREE PRODUCTS (Darling Donkeys & Approaching Perfection stamp sets), both only available until February 28.  I chose these sets for  StampingPals monthly challenge (February 2021) which is to use my favorite technique.   So what's the technique?  Using the fabulous new blending brushes from SU!  They are SO easy to use and the blending is more consistent and flawless with these brushes.  They come in a set of three and can be cleaned and reused to your heart's content. This stamping is as simple as I can manage.  I love layers and DSP and ribbons but I ditched all of that for this simple design.  The base is thick white cardstock.  I used the blending brush with Bermuda Bay ink to make the hazy cloud around the donkey.  The donkey is colored with Blends and adhered with dimensionals.  The saying is from the fun Approaching Perfection SAB stamp set (stamped with Bermuda Bay ink).  S
