Stamp Simply.....Hip to be Square Style!

Hi all and TGIF! It's time for another Stamp Simply challenge and this one is all about feeling square! Here's the deal - NO rounded corners on todays card. No ovals, no circular punches or die cuts, only square shapes. The card must be square and all layers added must have squared corners. Want to see the offical rules? Just click HERE to head on over to Sharon Johnson's site!

Now... to my super duper easy peasy card! This is truly a 10 minute card.....

I stamped my floral corner (Penny Black) using Ancient Page Coal. I colored it up with watercolor pencils, blended with a blender pen and then added some hot fix crystals in yellow. I added the sentiment in the lower right corner and then decided to add a punch of color in a square. I used post it notes to mask off a square and then sponged the color (Dandelion Memento) in the square. Remove the mask and... then it's time to add your green and yellow mat onto a 4-1/4" card. Add some fun ribbon from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and you're done!

Wanna be square too? Join us in this week's challenge! If you need a little extra inspiration, just visit these amazing Stamp Simply designers! ;-)

This is bright and cheerful and summer-like. Thank you! Maybe I need to print out the pretty cards you've done that make me think "sunshine" and tape them over my windows to cheer myself up.
