Inspire Me Monday: Clean and Simple Hellebores

Welcome back to Power Poppy! It’s Rhea here and today I am sharing the Hellebores Digital Stamp, and am going to show you a Clean and Simple way to treat this set.

Clean and Simple (CAS) is oh so popular! For some like me it wasn't easy to do at first. I am a very detailed person and love layers and embellishments.  I love adding shaped dies and textures of ribbon and whatever else I can find.  With this beautiful Hellebores Digital Stamp I think I was a able to accomplish the CAS but still added a touch of embellies, texture with a few layers.  But showing the true beauty of the digital image its self.

Then came the question, to fussy cut or not to fussy cut?  hahahaha  When I added the sentiment next to it I decided not to fussy cut that area and place layers there.  But I did fussy cut the rest of the image.  That really made the image pop off the textured background.  Of course I used pop up squares to help it along.  

There was one little problem...ever open a marker and a blob of ink drops on your image?  Yup, me too!!  Right on the sentiment, and just as I was finishing the last flower.  So what do you do?  Put more dots on the sentiment and act like it was suppose to be there :)  just sayin'

Here is the color palette I used so you too can color up this beautiful image. 


  1. Very pretty! I like the background and not all clean and simple needs to have nothing going on! :)

  2. Beautiful card!! Love your coloring!! I like that you have fussy cut the image.

  3. Lovely colouring. Like the digital stamp.

  4. I love how you designed this beautiful card. And I must mention how I love the way you include the marker colors right with the card - thanks for that.

  5. Oh, Rhea, this is gorgeous, and I love the CAS layout with the amazing texture of your background! And, yes, we've all had our little "whoopsies" that we figure out how to "fix" in one way or another. And often it turns out to be something even more fun! Hugs!


Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts.
