Simple Stamping and Embossing

Hello friends!

Do you get overwhelmed by new techniques, new products, new gadgets, new tools....
new everything?
As a mother of two adult children, I used to tell the kids to make new friends when the new school year came along. The kids always looked at"Making new friends is not that easy!" So often times, they just loved hanging out with their old friends. Can you blame them? 

Today's card is just that--revisiting our first love of card-making: 
stamp and embossing, nothing more.
There is no fancy technique (such as masking) involved, either.

This is one of the 4 cards that I created with the latest "Build-a-Flower" Anemone stamp set without using the matching die (included in the kit)!

The delicate outline images were embossed with Golden Peach Embossing Powder 
(shop Simon Says Stamp here). Once the flowers were embossed, I applied Maple Yellow Crisp Dye Ink (shop SSS here).

Simple, maybe, but with such impact. Soft lovely colors and meticulous embossing makes this card perfect.

Beautiful card. As you wrote....Today's card is just that--revisiting our first love of card-making: stamp and embossing, nothing more. I often realize that like friends....the reason for card making remains the same: comfortable and cozy. I like to try new things and you sure make me think I can...but the tried and true always wins.
