Just right


I love over-the-top, More Is More cards, but there’s something to be said for simplicity:

Easy Events in Calypso Coral

  • Easy Events Stamp set
  • Very Vanilla and Pear Pizazz card stock
  • In Color Designer Series Patterns Paper
  • Chocolate Chip Classic ink pad
  • Pear Pizazz and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers
  • Big Shot and Framed Tulips Textured Embossing Folder
  • Rhinestone Jewels
  • Chocolate Chip Scallop Dots ribbon

Easy Events was one of the many (7) free stamp sets I brought home from Convention.  I have to be completely honest – when I read the announcement that it was one of the Convention sets I thought I wouldn’t use it.  It seemed too simplistic, too (dare I say it??) beginner.   I know.  Stampin’ Snobbery at its worst.

I have reformed my thinking.

I really like the images in this set, and the sentiments – included with the images for quick and easy stampin’ – are just right, Goldilocks.  Not too silly, not too sweet, not too stuffy, but just right.  Add a little bit of bling, a little bit of Big Shot Embossin’, and you have a card that is…well, I think it’s just right!

  1. This is so cute! I was wondering the same thing – if I would use it. But, as usual you have inspired me. The ribbon is a cute touch and everything goes with that embossing folder. I just love this card!

  2. Ya baby! I forgot that we received that set at convention and was wishing I had it. Good thing I didn’t put it in my order today! I always love your more simple cards! Great job!
