Simple, Special, and Stunning SheetLoads!

Stamps: Squigglefly (April Showers), Hanna Stamps (Things Hanna Would Say). Cardstock: Stampin Up (Old Olive), My Mind's Eye (Simply Beautiful), Papertrey (white). Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine), Copics. Accessories: American Craft Elements (dotted grosgrain ribbon), Stampin Up (scallop border punch), Spellbinders (Nestabilities, long rectangle).

A new feature over on SheetLoad, called 'Simple/Special/Stunning' is in it's second month and and it was my turn to create cards inspired by the theme. The purpose of 'Simple/Special/Stunning' according to foundor Alicia is "to show how each issue of SheetLoad can be adapted for papercrafters of all levels".

The April Showers card above is my idea of a simple card -- it follows the SheetLoad July sketch exactly and the embellishment is actually a flower cut from the background DP. To see the next levels, Special and Stunning, check out the SheetLoad blog.

Let me know if our definitions of Simple/Special/Stunning are in the same field, or how they differ. We know everyone has their own idea of a 'simple' (and a 'not-so-simple') card!


  1. Wowza, Jessica! You brought your "A" game this month to show off some absolutely "STUNNING" cards to showcase the SLC new segment. Love all of the dp, techniques and embellies you used to make the perfect samples for each category. Great job!

  6. This is beautiful Jessica!! I really like that you used the flower from the designer paper - brilliant!! How come I never think of those ideas!! :-)

    It is true that simple can be defined in many way!! While your card is definately simple compared to the intricate cards made by many talented ladies, for me I am horrible at creating cards that incorporate more than 1 type of designer paper or more than 2 colors :-) Heheheh, for me, that's the definition!!
