The Sisterhood Challenge Simply Made

Today at The Sisterhood of Crafters Terri is our hostess
and she has chosen the theme
"Simply Made"
meaning not a lot of embellishments on or a one layer card so to speak.

Well, I took the theme totally to heart and made a
pretty much CAS card, leaving lots of white space.

I don't know what made me think of these little critter stamps  I have had forever,
but for some reason they came right to!

I do have to confess though,
simple as this card is I had to stamp it 3 times
before I liked it.
The first two times I stamped with 2 different brands of inks,
I won't mention them as I LOVE both
but they were too 'blah' for these guys.
here is a small sample of what  I mean

Then I had a 'light bulb' moment
and decided to use embossing powders!

All the products I used came from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
The little guy on the left I used Coffee EB powder
and the little gal on the right I used Berry Bliss,
isn't that a unique color?  Love it!!
to the center of her flowers.
The hearts were embossed with Red Apple.
I don't know abut you, but I think EB powder is
it just comes to life once it is heat set!
( Some of the links of the products used are from 2 different Sparkle N Sprinkle 'stores' as we are in the process of swapping over to a new store...and it is wonderful!
Old store link Sparkle 'N' Sprinkle 
as soon as all products are moved over the link will be

We would love to have you join our challenge at
The Sisterhood, and the 'sistah's have some great inspiration to get you going!!

Embossing definitely "umphs" the color, and I do love that pink. Very unusual. Your CAS design rocks! These hedgehogs in love are so cute!
