Simple but effective - Stampin' Up! project

I love the way that a few products can create something that is really effective, which brings a happy smile to the recipient, but which took no time at all to create.  This is one of the sets that do this (IMHO).  The water colour words stamp set, some washi tape and a couple of ink pads and hey presto!  You can even add a couple of simple embellishments to add some bling.

To create these cards, all you need are your card blanks.  Stamp some hearts using flirty flamingo, and stars using the lemon-lime twist (I don't usually 'do' green, but I do like this particular ink colour).

Stamp the 'hooray' stamp onto some lemon-lime twist cardstock and trim down to make a banner.  Grab some of the washi tape and simply pop some onto your card, anyway you like!  Pop the 'hooray' banner onto your card and add a star to finish it off.   For the hearts card, stamp the love sentiment on top of your stamped hearts, add some washi tape and if you desire, pop on a heart.  There you have it, quick, simple and WOW!  Not shown, but I'd be inclined to add some of the mini sequin trim, to add some extra sparkle!

As you can see, you can embellish your envelopes as well. Don't stop just at the cards.  Check out more projects over on my Stampin' Up! shop website.
