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 Embellished Elegance stamp set. Enjoy!

“The Embellished Elegance stamp set is such a classic, versatile set…one with so many images included that it can be used with many different styles and themes.  I’ve combined it with the Autumn Pumpkins stamp set and used the wide variety of leaves and vines to embellish and dress up my simple punpkins.”
