Well my friends….here you go! There is not too much to say other than same basic card with a twist….If you missed yesterday’s post –CLICK HERE and you will see the Simple Saturday version and today….we have it “stepped up a bit” 🙂
You know I often blog about not being afraid of using your DSP……because truth be told – I KNOW YOU HAVE IT….and YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BUNCH OF IT.….so – USE IT!
When I stamped the cards for this weekend – I did the EXACT same thing on both cards and decided to just stand back….look at it and GO FOR IT!
I loved the simplicity of this DSP from the Succulent Garden DSP Collection. It is bold, it is FUN!. All I did was cut 5 rows of “dots” and adhered it to the stamped base that is 5 1/4″ X 4″.
I places a strip of Fast Fuse on the back where the DSP is and then placed 3 pieces of White Bakers Twine and the make a triple bow and adhered it to the front with anchoring it with a glue dot.
Chris R. – you did get this correct….I added Wink of Stella over the black insides of the flowers….I know – it is super hard to see in the photos but trust me, it is “just the right touch” to make an impact!
Well….my vote – TODAY’S card….WHY???? I know that the pictures do not give it the love it deserves….but that splash of fun really looks stunning with the bold flowers!
I invite you to give it a try….no worries if you do not have this stamp or the specific DSP….USE WHAT YOU HAVE….and give it a whirl. You can see that it is very simple yet has a classic feel.
Here is your picture to pin. I suggest that you find some “me time” and try using a bold DSP with a stamp. Trust me. at first you are going to think it looks wonky but just keep going….remember, it is HANDMADE, not HALLMARK and it is a WORK FROM YOUR HEART.
We had a beautiful day yesterday, it was unseasonably warm and it was great to see the sunshine….BUT….when it is warm that means – OFF COME THE HORSES BLANKETS…..and they love it….and they roll, for them it is preferably in mud….which means….when they come in……grooming – re-blanketing because it dips down in temperatures and I have this incredible patient husband looking at me saying, “You do not feel well…is this really necessary????….and then he caves in and says – I’ll help because I know you will not sleep worrying about them”
He is the best – and we are still are considering buying stock in Kleenex but we are hanging in there…..actually it is kind of funny as we both as sniffling together so it is hard to get the “male sympathy” from me!
I offer a very generous rewards program so if you like free stamp sets…than I’m your gal!
