Good morning everyone....

Today's card shows what you can achieve using one main stamp and one Promarker

The card is certainly not flashy/over the top/ etc  but sometimes you may need a quick 'congratulatory' card to send to someone and this design is ideal for the male population

I've mentioned previously how I intend to use each and everyone of my die and stamp collection, embossing folders.... well, to cut a long story short, all the gear in my craft room!  So, this Clarity stamp just happened to appear on my work table and I had an idea to use it for today's card but also to keep the card minimalish....

It's a 6" square card, top folding, and the stamp is a Clarity stamp nos 68 and named 'floral swirl'.  This is the first time I've used it and I actually bought it in 2012!... shocking I know

I used Adirondack 'denim' to stamp around the card then a Promarker in 'berry red' to add the dots.  There is a little white space on the leaves so I added the red to those too

The sentiment is one by Creative Expressions and you'll see on the last picture below the ones I've used frequently.  I used a Versafine ink pad in 'satin red' to stamp the sentiment then ran the denim ink pad on the edges

Foam pads were added to the back just to give it a little height

As this is my first week of blogging this year I decided not to do a 'Festive Friday', although the odd one may make an appearance, the reason being that I'm going to make a batch of the same card design except for the ones going to our nearest and dearest.  I will carry on with the give-away

So for this week's freebie I have a distress ink pad in 'weathered wood'.  The same condition still applies, if you'd like your name added to the draw then please leave me a comment on today's post by 6pm Saturday and I will announce the winner on Sunday's blog
Until later....

Today's freebie 


  1. I like this card, so simple and very effective especially the red dots which just bring it to life. Really nice

  2. I love that idea June - never really consider one stamp!! I love the simplicity of the card & can be used with many sentiments!- clean Must admit, like you, I have stash that has been bought, stored, and is still in prisitne condition - but thats part of being a crafter I think!!!! Thanks June!

  3. Such a simple clean card that even I could make, thanks it's perfect for me xxx

  4. Hi June this is a stunning card. I love the idea it is brilliant. I do have that ink pad so there is not need for me to go into the draw. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  5. Hi June,
    what a very wonderful card and I like the idea of using up old stash.
    I keep promising to do tha same but get side tracked by new products too much.
    I also want to try and make some CAS cards as I'm not good at not adding more things to cards and have to sit on my hands for a CAS one.
    I do so admire people that can make them.
    Your design is fab and would be very good for most occasions.
    Love that denim ink colour.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  6. Brilliant card and a good idea. I am sure I have lots of stamps I haven’t used. Thanks for sharing.
