Don't get me wrong, I love all my ribbons, markers, papers, gadgets, gizmos, and whatnots, but you can create a big impact with a couple well-designed stamp sets and a few embellishments.
Here's each one alone:
I stamped the circle first, stamped it again on a post-it note, then cut out the center to create a mask before stamping the daffodils in the middle. The sentiment was stamped before I put the Washi tape over top.
For the next two, I created "patterned paper" using the Doodle Design circle and three dots. The Washi tape went over top of a white strip to keep the pattern from showing through. To attach the banners, I used a regular stapler (which I'm counting as an "embellishment").
If you want to limit yourself to one stamp set, here are a couple with just the daffodil set.
Two stamp sets, one ink pad, two colors of paper, and two embellishments. Beautiful doesn't have to complicated, expensive, or time-consuming.
Until next time,
