The Simply Elegant Suite in the Annual Catalog is one that caught my eye from the beginning, but since it isn’t typically my “style”, I kept moving along. But it kept calling my name and when my monthly class members asked to do a class with it, that was enough for me to say yes, and boy am I grateful for them. The stamp set, Elegant Said, is versatile, pretty, and has great sentiments. The elegant tag punch is a great addition to your punch collection, and the Simply Elegant 12 x 12 Specialty Designer Series Paper. Well. Y’all know how I feel about Stampin’ Up!’s designer series paper, but this paper is now ranked one of my top 10 favorites. It is simply stunning.
Here’s a card I made using the stamp set and DSP.
The card base is Smoky Slate cut 6 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored on the long side at 4 1/4″. You take a piece of DSP measuring 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and adhere it to the inside of the front flap to make a full card front, and that glorious foiled DSP will shine through when it is opened. (This project also uses the Simply Elegant Trim and the inside also uses the Word Wishes dies and A Wish for Everything Stamp Set.)
Below are more projects I made with this Suite:
