Stepped-up Octopus card by Stampin' Up!

Simple octopus greeting card made with the Message in a Bottle stamp set by Stampin' Up saying 'You octopi my thoughts' with Real Red hearts

Add some extra stamping for a different look... 
So yesterday I explained that I've gone back to basics, and have been concentrating on simple cards that only need a few supplies.

It is so easy to create complicated cards with loads of detail, but it gets expensive, and isn't necessarily needed for a beautiful card.

With a bit of extra stamping I have stepped up yesterday's Octopus Card (below) by adding some hearts and the bottle stopper:

'You Octopi my thoughts' card made using the Message in a Bottle stamp set by Stampin' Up!

Both are gorgeous cards, but there's no doubt that the added hearts adds that little bit of extra oomph.

I have still only used the bare minimum of supplies; Whisper White Cardstock, some Basic Black, Real Red and Emerald Envy Ink and one stamp set - Message in a Bottle
The images comprising the Message in a Bottle stamp set by Stampin' Up! including a ship, mermaid, octopus and more.

My project was put together with some Snail Adhesive. I'm looking forward to giving this to someone special.

Back tomorrow, thanks for stopping by,
