Hello! I have to admit that I didn’t really get a chance to play with all my new toys yesterday. I did get them put away but in order to do that there was a lot of cleaning up and organizing to do. Yuck! I really wanted to play. It is a good feeling to be organized though.
I’m calling this week Video Week on the blog. Stampin’ Up! has some great videos out about some of their new products and I want to share them with you.
The first video I want to share with you is about the Oh, So Eclectic Bundle. I used this stamp set on the card I shared a few days ago. There is so much you can do with this stamp set and COORDINATING framelits. Here’s a simple card that I made using just the stamp set and the new Fresh Fig In-Color.
Be sure to check out the samples at the end of the video. There are some really cute ones that I’m anxious to try.
You can check out more details on this bundle here. Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
It’s Simple Saturday! So….when I started designing this card I intended to go real simple: single layer….just the card. However, that’s not what I ended up with.
First of all my images were too small for a full size card and it was just way too plain even when I tried it on a note card. What to do, what to do….
Add a layer of course! Well, it was kind of like “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”….you know, the kids book… One layer just wasn’t enough so I needed another layer…and then another one. Luckily I stopped at four layers. Ha!
Of course, once I got all of the layers put together I still thought there was too much white space. Honestly, I thought I was over the fear of white space on a card but apparently not. I needed something on the lower portion of the card. I didn’t have many of the new ribbons from the new catalog so I decided to go with the Basic Black Solid Baker’s twine. I added a small bow with long tails that hung down into the scary white space. Ta da! It is finished! Yep, that was the answer.
Even with water coloring the flower image this was still an easy card. Easy yet elegant. I can’t wait to see all of the easy and not so easy cards I’ll be able to design once I have my stash of new products….that will be here MONDAY! Woo Hoo!
Have you ordered your new products yet? Have you even checked out the new catalog yet? Get on it! The catalog is fantastic!
