Good Morning and as promised – I told you that I was “mixing” something up for you today! Here is my Simple Saturday card for you….no envelope as this is a card that I will slide in some goodies!
I should have taken a picture of the goodies to show you how I adore to tie things together. For those of you that get my product shares or even get a goodie from me with an order, one thing that usually happens is that I present it to you as a gift.
I am pointing this out to you as true it take a bit more effort but I think that we all can say, the effort is well worth it because one thing happens INSTANTLY – you feel special, you feel important and with the crazy hectic schedules we all seem to have ~ there is nothing like seeing something special and complete!
You know that I adore square cards and today is no different. You also know that I adore the DSP Stacks that we have in all color collections.(this is why I offer them on every Product Share that I offer)
The 2 colors that I am using today to make a POP are Emerald Envy and Pacific Point. I love the boldness and crisp contrast they give to one another.
I have done other posts using this stamp set, click here and here – Perfect Mix ~ I will say that I am sure that many of you have flipped right past it in the catalog! I think that it is a fun and whimsical set with some great sentiments but also it is great for those of you that are like me…making things and giving them away! (always gets an instant “feel-good”)
Again, I am keeping it super simple and clean with basic shapes and you can see that I am using both circle framelits, the layering circles and the stitched shapes framelits.
For the simple coloring I used the Aqua Painter and then I know that it is super hard to see but I used the wink of stella pen to give by “batter of love” some shimmer – a quick and easy touch that is a wee bit of blink without going over board.
Because this sentiment was too big and square for me to fit it in I decided that there are always options (isn’t that soooooo true in life as well) – there are times that you just have to look at something and say, “How can I make that work”?????
Simple….I did a quick surgery and cut it and then matted it! This works every time and it truly is a great solution when you are in a jam!
There you go…today’s Simple Saturday card for you….I hope that you are having a fantastic day and that I hope that you pop back tomorrow to see how I stepped it up!
I admit, I love to read your comments on Saturdays as sooooo many of you try to guess what I am going to do for the next day…it is equally as fun for me to out guess you.
Please know how much I appreciate you taking your time to pop on my blog. I try my best to inspire you as well as be your biggest cheerleader to help you see that YOU CAN DO IT~
Do you remember what I said about making things special? Well…every month I will get emails from people that said, I totally forgot that I was going to be getting something from you and when it came and it was all wrapped and special, I felt special!
Well…in case you do not know this – let me tell you , YOU ARE SPECIAL…..I know that I am a good one to talk as I am very, very hard on myself but this is something that we all need reminded…we are all special!
Now go in that kitchen and whip something up!
