Precious and Few...Stamped Simply


I had so much fun playing along with Sharon's stamp simply challenge last week. So I decided to make one more card using the same challenge rules.

For this card I used my Harmony Circle III Stamp Ensemble from JustRite Stampers. This set comes with 6 design borders and 6 design centers. The 3 1/4" wood stamper is included, so I had everything I needed right in the box!


I colored on the rubber using a Tombow (water based) marker, huffed on it, then stamped on designer paper. I decided not to use a JustRite border around the sentiment since there were other elements that I didn't want to distract from. The stamped image was cut and embossed with my circle Nestabilities.

I used my new Martha Stewart punch for the strips behind the sentment. The cardstock is Prismatics Crabapple in light and dark.

The pearls are from Kaiser Craft and the designer paper is from the DCWV Luxury Stack. This paper is pearlescent, and very elegant.

So easy...and so pretty! I just love it when that happens! :-)

Thanks for stopping by! I'm working on something new, so I will be back soon. I hope you are too.

Very elegant! I adore your two little flourish borders on the round tag. The MS punch work is exquisite and your graduated pearls are to die for. I feel another order coming on.

Beautiful Michelle! I love the dp, the colors, the sentiment and I really like how you used 3 different sizes of pearls on the horizontal strip! I have that same luxury stack and somehow I never noticed this design was so pretty!! Beautiful punched borders in alternating colors! Love that!
