White Space

I am part of a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators 
known as the Artful*Inkers, lead by Donna Henley.
At the beginning of the year Donna decided to 
create a weekly challenge for our group and 
this week's challenge is to create a project that has 
a lot of white space....think simple, not a lot of "stuff", 
minimal layers, minimal embellishments......you get the idea.

You would think a simple card would be, well, simple right?
Not for the brain in my head, that's for sure!
I absolutely love, love, love the Mixed Bunch stamp set,
this image in particular, but would you believe 
that it took me forever to come up with this?
I am so used to a card being so much "more" that I
guess I forgot how lovely a "simple" card can be.
My favorite colour is purple and I am really liking 
the way this card turned out.  I guess I will have to try the
less is more approach to card making more often.

Stamps:  Mixed Bunch and You're Cherished
Inks:  Perfect Plum Classic Ink
Papers:  Perfect Plum and Whisper White Card Stock
Accessories:  Blossom Punch

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

  1. I agree with you about how lovely a simple card can be - this is really elegant - and yes, I "get it" that it could take forever to come together! I think sometimes that it's much harder being minimalist. Really nice card!
