Everything Eleanor from Stampin’ Up!

Super quick thank you cards using Everything Eleanor from Stampin’ Up!

Now these cards are the quickest of quick to make seriously. I will be making a bunch of these as this month’s thank you cards as not only are they super quick, I think they are lovely too! Well I’m biased – what do you think? I used Everything Eleanor from Stampin’ Up! and I am entering them (well one of them) in to the Less is More One Layer “Stem” challenge this week.

I was toying with the idea of adding a border around the flower for some extra interest but when I tried a couple of un-inked stamps to see what they would look like I decided Less is definitely More in this case.

I would describe Everything Eleanor from Stampin’ Up! as a more traditional stamp set and I tend to have a more modern style, but I thought I could team it up with the ink splat from Gorgeous Grunge to give it a more modern twist that would work well. I stamped the first ink splat in Real Red on one card blank and then Watermelon Wonder on the other, after stamping off to get a lighter shade for the second card.

I haven’t used Everything Eleanor for an age but this week, it’s been grabbing my attention every time I look down my rack of stamp sets, so I thought today would be the ideal outing for it. At first I was going to stamp, colour and cut out the flower to stick over the ink splats, but luckily remembered it was a one layer (clue being in the title duh!) challenge this week. Lol!

I must admit I am dying to add some sequins or rhinestones to bling them up a bit, but I’m resisting the temptation to stick with the one layer theme! Lol!
