Welcome to the new Simple to Spectacular feature!

Who doesn’t love a simple, classic sugar cookie? But then you icing and it gets even sweeter and more decadent. And then you pop on some sprinkles and suddenly it’s a party! The idea of this feature will be to show how a single stamp set can be used to create a card from clean and simple to downright fabulous with a few extra layers and embellishments.

We have three designers participating today and they each have three progressive card designs to share using the Pedal Pusher stamp set. Enjoy!

“I have always loved Pedal Pusher and couldn’t wait to take it for spin this week! I love riding bikes at the beach. So inspired by that along with my favorite color, and true to my typical clean and simple style, I have three takes for you today, each one a little more involved than the last. From simple to stepped up to spectacular, I used the same stamps, colors, and basic layout – and now I want to go ride a bike! Stop by my blog to read more about each design.”
