Welcome to Simple to Spectacular!

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 a few designers participating today and they each have three progressive card designs to share using the Uncorked stamp set. Enjoy!

“The Uncorked set is perfect for celebrations of all kinds!  The wine bottles are easy to stamp as they are, or can be combined with all sorts of different techniques to create some really fun effects.  For my ‘spectacular’ card I played around with embossing on vellum for a frosted glass effect!”

“Nothing says celebrate like breaking out a bottle of good wine! And no matter if your style is simple or you break out all of the confetti and bling, your message to celebrate can reflect that. It was fun to start simple and then keep adding elements to take each card to the next level for the group of cards that I am sharing with you today. This is the thing I love most about card making – customizing your cards perfectly to your style and the occasion.”Supplies:
