Simple Stamping with a Light Bulb Moment

Hello friends!
Hope you are keeping safe and healthy. If you are staying home, I hope that you find some creative outlet and use this time to explore. I am here to inspired and have a simple card to share.
Exquisite Envelopes
 When I was feeling stressed in the last few days, I decided to just get the stamps out to play.
thank you  

 The clear stamp set offers lots of small lovely images. These stamps offer fine and detailed edge lines and they make the image pop and look really sharp.

One thing I find it helpful to make the stamping more aesthetically more appealing .....
thank you

Ding---> Aim for 3. When stamping a floral scene such as today's card,  it is easiest just start stamping three images. Once you have done that, you can then stamp smaller images to fill in the spots to make it fuller. You can also use just part of the stamps to fill in the gap. EASY, right? 

thank you (2)

The obvious object of affection is...yup, that picket white fence (Pretty Picket).
I am in love with that fence and will definitely use it in more creative ways.
thank you -001
I used Distress Oxide for all of the stamping.  All the PB products that will be featured in my blog are listed below with affiliate links. Thanks for the support. 

Last but not the least....I was not going to bombard you with daily posts.
However, in a time like this (with news about the Kovid-19), mundane and normal routine like visiting card-making blogs might be one thing that is comforting and constant. 
So, I am doing what I can to share and spark joy (if any).
Thank you so much for your daily comment and visits!

I do love just pulling out my stamps for this sort of card--like the good 'ole days--haha! Beautiful, Virginia!

Dawn T said...

Gorgeous card Virginia. I Love the picket fence at the bottom.. I'm at home under lockdown for the next 4 weeks but working 71/2 hrs a day so still not much time to craft except in the weekends.

Love the little fence! And great light bulb moment!

Linda BL said...

Very sweet card-- love the picket fence.
I, for one, think that your blog posts and others are helping to take my mind off what is going on. If you posted twice a day, that would be fine with me!

Maura said...

Love your sweet whimsical garden scene, Virginia! Who can resist a colorful garden with a picket fence??? And great tip about stamping 3 and then adding smaller images!!! Thanks!

Ms. Tamp said...

Thank you for the stamping tip. I have trouble grouping images that are in the style of these separate flowers. It either looks too crowded or not cohesive in design.
