In creating time with friends and doing some easy or some times not so easy challenges, I totally enjoyed making these cards.
The use of not even a half of a 12 x 12 sheet of simply beautiful pattern paper was the secret . From super simple fast cards to a little more fun, they were all extremely EASY, yet a couple I thought were pretty too ...
First a fast Thinking of you card using some scraps of that Pattern paper . I cut a small strip off of the front of the card and them added a strip of paper inside to balance the outside , I matted the sentiment that was stamped directly onto the pretty paper... this is 3 3/4 x 7 1/2
Second , is another fast card, I used wide sheer ribbon over a wide strip of the pattern paper, then added a strip of sahara sand cardstock,by SU, stamped the sentiment in brown, paper pierced a bit and added flowers from my stash
And fourth is my personal favorite.I again stamped right on the pretty paper that I mounted on Crumb Cake as my card base. Then I used markers and a blender pen to color and coordinate my image to the paper. I matted the image on dark brown to set it up and off and used a piece of neutral ribbon to dress it up a bit. Last I rounded a couple of corners to make a change of style.I really love how this card turned out ..It just shows that ...
Sometimes just a half of a sheet of pretty paper is what it
takes to jump start my creativity , So I hope this sends you
looking at your stash of paper to see what you can create too...
Thanks for stopping by, And I hope to see you here again real soon.
Until then, Smile, Craft, and enjoy your day .
