Today I’m coming to you with a Clean And Simple (CAS) card featuring only one stamp set, the Stars Hollow set.

I love this set. I’m a casual fan of the show the set is based on, not a die-hard fan, but I love some of the sentiments used, and I LOVE coffee. 😉 This card actually came to me like a flash of lighting. The simplicity of this card is something that I think makes it POP!

I knew I wanted to use the umbrellas, and I was almost certain they belonged with the sentiment. I did my research and discovered that I needed 6 umbrellas, which lined up perfectly along the side of this card!

Creating my card

I started by stamping 6 umbrellas onto Arches Cold Press Paper using Staz-On ink. Next, I painted them in using Catherine Pooler inks. Finally, I fussy cut them out.

I stamped my sentiment onto my card base using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then adhered my umbrellas using foam squares to give this card more dimension. Finally, using the new Lawn Fawn glue (LOVE!), I adhered these iridescent stars. This final bit really made the card come to life.

Sometimes a perfect card doesn’t require a whole lot of work. Sometimes less is more.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Clean And Simple cards? Honestly, I can go either way. 🙂
