I have been on a clean & simple kick as of late. I love the multiple layer look, don't get me wrong, but there is something so appealing about a clean & simple card. These wonderful sets being featured today allow for such versatile cards and CAS cards as well!

Victoria (my 13 year old) had two birthday parties this weekend, so I had to whip up some cute teen cards. This one was created with the Lots of Letters stamp set. So simple and fun - using the letters and the square stitched background. I used black, white and pink - colors requested by Victoria for her friend Abby.  



This card uses lots of letters

 This second card features not only the woolen mittens stamp set, but also the perfect plaids background set. I made a faux burberry scarf background with black ink and red, cream and brown copics. I added some of the Gina K. ribbon and then stamped and trimmed up the mittens and colored them with copics. I used some old rustic thread I had on my desk to tie up the mittens. I love the sentiment font - so cute!
