May I Suggest...

What I would like to suggest today is that you… Stamp Simply. Yes, of course!!! And I’d like to suggest paper piecing as well. It gives your card a lot of punch for very little effort. And here are two simple cards that fit this Stamp Simply concept well:

These two cards are made pretty much the same, using Coffee with Friends, and a very simple plan of attack! We start with:

1) A simple design.
2) Use of designer paper for interest.
3) A large main image panel with a simple image, paper pieced, and elevated for dimension.
4) The addition of ribbon or an embellishment.
5) In this case, the omission of a sentiment, though we would often add one.

You may see the rest of this lengthy post which includes design tips and a little paper piecing tutorial on my Blog, No Time To Stamp?

Thanks so much for checking in!
