background stamps (full size and builder size)
clean and simple look
sentiments with two kinds of fonts
gingham (not trendy, but it is on the cover of this month's Martha Stewart magazine, so I'm hoping by listing it here, you will mistake it for a trend and make it a trend...)
Do NOT like:
rows of large ruffled ribbon
pom poms and other items that belong on curtains
weird stuff on cards, like game pieces...
things that could go south on me fast if we overdo it:
Stamping and a serial novel, "How Stamping Destroyed My Life"
