A single layer of Whisper White Cardstock on a Coastal Cabana card base, along with just three colors of ink, makes this #simplestamping in my mind.


The three colors are: Coastal Cabana, Melon Mambo, and Gorgeous Grape, inspired by TGIF’s color challenge.


First, I used an oval from the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Paper as a stencil, sponge daubing Coastal Cabana Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. My Sponge Dauber must have had another color in it, but I like the accidental two-tone effect.


Then, using Gorgeous grape Ink, I stamped the swinging girl from Silhouettte Scenes inside the oval.

For the third color, I stamped the tree branch from Butterfly Wishes in Melon Mambo Ink. Doesn’t this give the impression the girl is swinging from a tree?


To keep things simple, I stamped “Enjoy Today” right across the oval. I just had to add that little Melon Mambo Enamel Heart!


Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy today!
