I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU 🙂  I whipped up today’s card in just minutes using minimal supplies.  See more of my Stampin’ Up! Quick Card Samples. This card could easily evolve from simple to stepped up.  What product or technique would YOU add to step it up?  Please leave me a comment below.


  • A pop of Tangerine Tango from the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper takes a simple card to WOW!

  • A Stampin’ Up! Antique Brad brings the flower center to life.
  • I stamped the Whisper White Medium Envelope to coordinate with the card.  How pretty to find at the mailbox!

    I would emboss the image and then watercolor it, then die cut the sentiment and ink the edges. Love your work, Mary!

  2. I seriously can’t believe I forgot to order this when I placed my BIG demonstrator order yesterday – RATS! IF I WOULD HAVE ORDERED IT……I would emboss it and then pretty it up with some fun coordinating color using my ink pads and my watercolor brush. LOVE your creation girlfriend and many thanks for sharing! (PS – I see another demonstrator order being placed sometime today!)

  3. Love this card and stamp set! To step it up a bit I’d clear emboss the lines of the flower using a Versa Pen after stamping and maybe scallop the bottom of the small white CS. Just a suggestion… cathy

  4. Very pretty card.

  5. Wow, Mary, I’m not sure I’d do anything to step-up this card. Love it! I might possibly scatter a couple of basic pearls or rhinestones around the background or corners. Gotta have bling!

  6. I like this card….clean & simple ……short & sweet….smile on ones face when reading it!!!!

  7. Love it!

  8. I would use our duo daubers to spice up the edges around the saying! I do this on almost all my cards. Probably use the orange color. I think you said Tangerine Tango! I also love ribbon! Cute card Mary.

  9. Very nice, I just love this set. My problem is that I don’t use enough DSP when I create my cards. I am trying to use it more. Thank you for sharing.

  10. Love it as it is but might add a bit of color to the flower. Great card as always!

  11. Love the simplicity of this card! What a fun question about one thing to add…and a tough question, too. If I HAD to, maybe try a very thin strip of ribbon under the flower and across the WW piece. Thanks for getting us thinking 🙂

  12. Mary this card is cute and simple. I love your style. Have a great day.

  13. I love the design of this card!

  14. Muy bella te felicito, bellos colortes

  15. Wow beautiful. I luv this.


  16. Very pretty card! I would add some texture to the white except where the flower is.
