Good Thoughts

Lately I've gotten into more clean and simple cards.  Today's was inspired by the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.

This card is most certainly crisp and clean with Whisper White as the card base.

The color inspiration came from my stash of washi tape.  The bottom layer is from Stacked with Love Washi in the Occasions Catalog, I love the stripes.  I also wanted to pull in a cheerful color, so the next layer is the Hello Honey washi tape from the Happiness Is Project Life Accessory Kit.

With a clean card base comes a clean focal point.  The sentiment from Perfect Pennants is in Memento Tuxedo Black with a sweet little Hello Honey envelope below.

Did you notice anything different about this card??  I restrained myself and didn't add one single sequin or rhinestone....can you believe it!!   The only extra splash of color came from the little Cherry Cobbler heart on the envelope.  Are you wondering where the envelope came from??  Well, it's in the super cute set About the Label in the Annual Catalog.  I love that it's just the outline of the envelope, it has a super clean look.  And lastly, the sweet little heart was made with the Hearts Border Punch, it was just the right size!

If you haven't given the clean and simple look a try, why not?!  It's a great way to get in your stamping time when you are super busy.

Until next time, happy stamping!

Card "Create"tions Saturday Blog Hop Week 3!!

Welcome!!  We are in our final week of Card "Create"tions Celebrations 2015 and it has been a blast!

A big thank you to all of you that have followed us these three weeks!!  You should be arriving from Melissa's fabulous blog Rubberfunatics.  She never disappoints!!  As always, make sure to travel all the way around so you don't miss anything!

My final card set was for the gorgeous Your Perfect Day.  To make it even better, I paired it with Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper and the Artisan Embellishment Kit.  When I started planning for this blog hop, I considered many options.  As I've told you before, I love to re-use things and I keep all sorts of boxes and containers.  So, why not use the box for the Artisan Embellishment Kit as my favor.

Isn't this cool!! My upline Patty Bennett was the first to think of this idea and I think she is a genius!  Once I had my box all prettied up with designer paper and embellishments, I had to decide what to put inside.  My first thought was lots of confetti and a congratulations card, but I went with thank you cards for the happy couple.

 Custom envelopes for each card of course!

There are so many ways to you run with this idea, I hope it has inspired you!  Now, onto the Debbie Henderson's awesome project at Debbie's Designs.

A Perfect Day

We are coming to a close for Card "Create"tions Celebrations from Create with Connie and Mary.  Today my last card set showcasing Your Perfect Day went live.  I can't share the exclusive cards with you, but I can share this one!

Your Perfect Day is so elegant and has a lovely simplicity to it.  My favorite stamp is this beautiful cake.  It stands alone nicely on this card with a bit of designer paper and a sentiment.

Pear Pizazz is a great accent color along with Blushing Bride.  They go hand in hand with this wedding style!  A couple of pearls and a small flower completes this elegant look.

If you'd like to see the Your Perfect Day card set I designed for Card "Create"tions Celebrations, you can still subscribe!  Just because the collection has come to an end doesn't mean you can't enjoy it!  In fact, you will get to have access to the entire collection ALL AT ONCE!  Woo Hoo!!  For all the details go to Create with Connie and Mary.
