Keep it Simple Sunday

Today's Tip: Stamp the same image in four different ink colors to create a modern themed card!
Today's card was created using another soon-to-be-released Sweet 'n Sassy image. This month, SNSS is releasing three mini stamp sets, all designed by Leah Cornelius, titled Birth Month Flowers. A few days ago I shared January's flower, the carnation, and today's card showcases February's flower, the iris. Each flower image also comes with it's respective month stamp; what a perfect combination for creating a yearly calendar. The images can be purchased individually or as a set of three. I adore floral images and have been just thrilled with these stamps...I can't put them down and have a stash of cards left to share! My card was super easy so not a ton to explain...I simply stamped the image four times, on white cardstock, in four different colors and then cut out a portion of the image with a Cuttlebug and Nestibilities dies. The squares were mounted on a piece of black cardstock and the card base has been embossed for some added texture. A black ribbon was the finishing touch! Enjoy!!
