Stamping Inkspiration November Blog Hop Clean & Simple Color Challenge

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspiration November Blog Hop as our Design Team takes part in a Clean & Simple Color Challenge. This month we have been challenged to create a Clean & Simple project featuring colors from this month's Color Challenge, including Granny Apple Green, Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent. You will have the chance to visit with our talented Design Team members as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you.
Clean and simple is one of my favorite styles of card making and I had a lot of fun coming up with a color combination with the choice of greens for this color challenge. I chose to use Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Soft Sea Foam and added Basic White for my sentiment label. I love the way these colors work together to create a soft and soothing card design.

This pretty clean and simple card is a wonderful blend of green tones and textures. I chose to emboss the Soft Sea Foam layer to give it soft texture for the background with the lovely Ferns 3D Embossing Folder. I die cut the detailed leaves and arranged them on the card front so that it would appear as though they were growing out of the top of the sentiment label. The Basic White sentiment adds a nice contrast to the layers of green and the Evening Evergreen Ribbon helps step up the design. I stamped the sentiment with Evening Evergreen Classic ink onto the Basic White label and popped it up over the ribbon and the bottom of the stems using Stampin' Dimensionals. To complete the card design, I added Evening Evergreen Opal Rounds to decorate the card front. This card design would work well for a variety of occasions just by changing the sentiment.
