Beautiful You Simple Two-Step Cards
One of my favorite sets from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalog is the gorgeous Beautiful You two-step stamp set!  It has three lovely sketched images of a woman that are perfect for all kinds of stamping techniques.  There are also a couple of "wash" images that you can stamp over the images to fill in the sketches with a watercolor-like look.  So fun!

Today's card gives you a sneak peek of the Beautiful You stamp set, along with a couple of new accents!
Background Basics—I started by adhering a 2" x 4" strip of a decorative paper from the new Tasty Treats Designer Series Specialty Paper pack onto a Crumb Cake card base.

Background Accents—I layered half of a brand new Lace Doilies accent on the background, too.  These pretty new doilies are heavier laser-cut card stock, not traditional-style delicate doilies.  One side is white and the other is vanilla, so it will coordinate with any stamping project! 

I also wrapped some Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon around the card front and tied it into a double-knot faux-bow.

Sweet Stamping—I stamped the Beautiful You line image, along with a coordinating sentiment from the same set, in Memento Black Ink onto a 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then, I stamped the wash image in Flirty Flamingo ink over the top for a quick & artistic look!  Love it!

Finishing Touches—I finished by layering the stamped layer offset over a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock, and popping both layer with Dimensionals.  I finished by adding a couple of Pearl Jewels to the corner.  I think it would be fun to put a little Wink of Stella on the dress color, too!

Beautiful you crumb in color - peach

Two Cool—I created a second version using another image from the Beautiful You set, along with another fun greeting from the set.  I also changed the colored elements to Peekaboo Peach. So pretty!
