I guess that you could say…..“Same Church, different pew” as I have made some changes from yesterdays card to change it up a bit and then you can see which one you like better! At 1st glance you might think that there are some major changes but they really are not.

Color is a BIG factor in what we do and trust me – I ADORE WHITE….but today you can see that I used the Tip Top Taupe as my base and it gives the card a totally different feel….do you agree? This is a great neutral color as you can easily write with a black pen and it is easy to read so there is no reason to add a mat of white to the inside!

Here you go…..


Today I added a 1″ stripe of black paper across the center of the card before I added the matted DSP like I did yesterday! Isn’t it amazing at how this simple touch adds an instant feeling of depth?

Also, to the stamped image I used a 2″ white circle and just matted that behind a wee bit and then used a 2 1/2″ Black Circle to really make a statement. After adding my dashes with the must have white gel pen I took a bit of adhesive to the back of the black circle and then added some of the FUN silver thread – I think little touches like this are super quick…take NO EXPERTISE…..and WOW – a fun look and feel!



You can see that it is basically the same card and they both truly would take about the same amount of time to make up. It all comes down to personal preference and what you are in the mood for when you sit down to create!

I know that we all have a TON of PAPER – let’s pull this paper out and put it to use. I hope that this 2 day posts has shown you that you can easily take a DSP print and make it work. True the stamping adds a bunch but do you know what is the most important part?

YOUR WORDS INSIDE….that is the important part!
