1. Decide on DP and cut to size for background.
2. Cut from the same piece of DP for the strip in middle of card, about 5cm x length of card. Now you will be using the otherside of same paper. (For example in the first card, one side of DP is True Thyme and the otherside is Dots)
3. Pick a co-ordinating colour for base of card.
4. Stamp image and embellish card how you desire.
It really is easy to come up with some quick and simple cards using this method because you hardly need to decide on the colours. Just pick your favourite DP and your favourite stamp set, and away you go. I certainly had fun making these 8 cards in one sitting!
The first three cards use Treehouse DP (which is retiring) and I've made some boyish cards using Wild About You and Bugs & Kisses stamp sets. These sets will both be in the new catalogue.
Here I've made some more samples cards using the All in the Family stamp set. Some girly cards using the Loves Me DP from the Summer Mini (which is also retiring). I really love the combination of colours you can use with this paper - Choc Chip, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink and Cool Carribean - some of my favourites.
And these two pretty Bella cards use Petals & Paisley which came out earlier this year in the Spring Mini. And I'm happy to say, we will be seeing this DP in the new catalogue.
My blog counter is ticking over very fast these days and I want to say thanks to those who take a peek at my blog, whether that be for Stampin'Up or personal. I can't believe it's getting close to 10,000 - which is actual visitors on my setting. So I'm planning on some blog candy and will be taking note of your lovely comments and who pops by to see me in the next month. So stayed tunned for more info....
