Good Morning….did you hear me grumbling yesterday? Well….I admit, I was as it has been a long time since I have had my “Susan Computer Issues” but yesterday and this morning…. it happened with the “photos” on my computer….it still is not right but I was creative and figured out a way to import them and today…yep, I have a date with a computer gu-ru!!!
I have a super simple card for you today that will hopefully put some ideas in your creative head to use this super simple technique with other basic shapes you have! You can also do this easily with a specific die shape….all you need is a die cut and Mr. Big!
Today I am using the below framelits, the Sweet & Sassy Framelits. I am often asked…“What are some tips in getting started in cardmaking”…I just LOVE this question as the answer is super simple….get the BASICS! I think “nesting shapes” of framelits are basics…and something that “timeless and the classics”! WHY??? The are a great building block for a clean and classic card!
In the below picture you will see what makes it unique….I cut the heart shape out of the front panel of my A-2 Card and then did a super simple stamp of a “love you” and POPPED it up! Now I ask you….HOW SIMPLE IS THAT?
I realize that there are some people that enjoy Valentines and then there are some….that just find it an ok time to make projects…but I think that a simple heart with a sentiment can do the trick…..for Valentines….or also and many other times throughout the year for someone super special! Are you wondering where that sentiment came from?
Please pop back tomorrow as I will be doing a whole post on a FUN product that I wager to say…..is a “sleeper” to many of you! It is the Oh Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set that is in the Oh Happy Kit…..found on page 15 in the Big Annual Catalog.
The focal paper is super yummy and the other prints in this collection are WOW – just STUNNING……Take a look below and I think that you will agree!
Remember, tomorrow is the LAST DAY for you to take advantage of my Occasions Product Share.…and just think – with a share you would easily be able to make some Valentines yourself with just a taste of this paper….a win-win as you will not be breaking the bank with having to buy a whole pack of paper!
You see….there are ways of getting the new kids on the block….giving them a test drive before you make the plunge to purchase it….to me, it is the best of both worlds!
This is a great view for you to see the opening….I thought that it was fun and something just a bit different than a regular card. I also think that the beautiful paper sets the tone for a clean and simple card that still makes a recipient feel WOW….I am super special! (cause guess what….YOU ARE)
I used Rich Razzleberry to stamp the sentiment and then did my “Susan dashes” to just jazz it up a wee bit….you know how I feel….LESS IS BEST and SIMPLE is my middle name as let’s face it….there are simply times where we just want to make something….with little time….and simply have that “I did it” experience, that is what makes us all beam with pride and joy!
Doesn’t it just look FUN to see the opening on the front? I did double and you could also triple up the dimension to make it really stand out but the card will still go through as a regular card with no additional postage!
I hope that this sweet card made your heart skip a beat! I cannot wait to share with you tomorrow the Oh Happy Day Kit and what I created. I know that there are many that enjoy my Monthly Kits but let me tell you…..this was a HUGE TREAT for me to make as I adored not having to work with cutting….planning…..designing…I GET IT – KITS ARE GREAT!
Speaking of kits…I am in FULL STEAM AHEAD with the January Kit and if you did not receive a confirmation from me….Houston, we have a problem….but no worries….just email me and we’ll get it squared away!
Have a GREAT day!
