Clean & Simple

The Clean & Simple Stamping blog has some really nice layouts, so I thought I'd try out the current Fall-To Layout:

I adored the sample on the blog and didn't realize how much my DEEsign looked like it until after I started to post (My colors are almost identical - oops!):


1. I loved the idea of a tone-on-tone look. I'm liking that lately, so I picked two very simple colors - SU! Kraft and Melon Mambo.

2. I started out by using my Cuttlebug and my Sizzix Heart #5 die. I adhered the heart to a 2 1/4 inch square, then cut it into 4 smaller squares.

3. I used my Pinking Hearts Border Punch and some hemp twine for my ribbon embellishment.

4. I added the sentiment from SU!'s A Happy Heart stamp set.

5. So simple!


  1. Very pretty! Love how you broke up the main image to fit onto the 4 squares. :)

    Thanks for playing along with the FTL! :)

  2. Fun card! I love the main image being split over the squares, cute idea!
