OSAT May Clean and Simple Blog Hop

 Hello friends!  Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time May Clean and Simple Blog Hop!  If you've already been hopping you should have landed here from the amazing Anna Smith's blog!  If you started with me, you'll want to make sure you hop all the way through and check out all of the fabulous cards and projects!  

Is Clean and Simple your style?  Well it honestly is not mine but I'm beginning to love it more and more.  Of course I always love everyone else's CAS cards... just not always my own!  

I started with an 11" x 4 1/4" piece of Stampin' Up! Bermuda Bay Cardstock scored at 5 1/2" for a top folding card.  My next layer was 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" SU Basic Black Cardstock and the Top Layer was Neenah Crest Solar White 80# cardstock.  The Doily is from the May Fun Stamper's Journey Bloom Box.  The stamp set is called Decorative Doily.  I stamped it in Versamark on Neenah Crest Solar White #80 cardstock and heat embossed it in White.  I used Tim Holtz Peacock Feather Distress Ink and an Ink Blending Tool to color in the image starting in the middle and working my way out so that it was darker in the center and lighter on the outside edges.  I used the coordinated dies to cut it out and and added it to my white layer and cut off part of the right side.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams.  It was heat embossed in white onto a thin strip of  SU Basic Black cardstock and adhered onto the doily with a thin strip of foam tape.  I finished it off with three Pretty Pink Posh Onyx Black Sequins.  I really love the simplicity of this one.  

For my gift card holder I used the Little B Gift Card Holder Die set to cut out a piece of 80# Neenah Crest Solar White Cardstock.  I folded the score lines and used FSJ White Liner Tape to adhere the sides.  My Doily was the smallest from the FSJ Decorative Doily Stamp Stamp Set.  I stamped it in Versamark  on more of the 80# Neenah Crest Solar White Cardstock and Heat embossed it in White.  I used Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and an Ink Blender to color in the doily and then cut out with the coordinating dies.  I layered it onto a SU Black Stitched Circle from the Stitched Shape Framelits Dies and then a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock cut with the Circle Layering Framelits.  The small banner was dry embossed with "For You" and was part of the Little B's Gift Card Die set. I know it's a little card to see the embossed letters.  They did not photograph very well.. Sorry.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll continue on by clicking next.  You'll not want to miss the fabulous blog of Maria Willis! She's a Stampin' Rock Star!
