Welcome to my little corner of the interwebs! I hope you have enjoyed the projects and cards you have seen so far in your little journey around the blogosphere today.
You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell from tiny town in Southern Illinois smack dab in the middle of the USA.
Today it is finally bright and sunny and a little warm-ish. So, that makes me think that Spring may actually arrive sometime this year. With all the cold and rain, it was really in doubt! So, this put me in the mood for flowers.
This first card, I CASE’d from Leanne Miller. Why re-invent the wheel every time you want to create something. I always say that I have not had an original idea since the invention of Pinterest! Even when I think I have made something completely on my own, it has most likely been inspired by the beautiful creations of others. So, thanks for the inspiration, Leanne!
PS – CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything. I hope the projects you see on my blog you like enough to CASE!
Isn’t that just beautiful… you know aside from the fact that my ink pads could probably use a little re-inking! I used the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper to decide my color scheme. I with with Night of Navy, Call Me Clover, and Calypso Coral. I have included the complete supply list below. The flower image was pieced together from the Blooms by Blooms stamp set and the sentiment is from the Incredible Like You stamp set.
And, don’t forget the inside. More often than not, I have no clue what to put on the inside. So, I just use DSP or images when there is no clear “inside” sentiment to go with the one on the outside.
It leaves plenty of room for a quick little note to tell the recipient how much you adore them!
My next card actually used that Incredible Like You stamp set as well. It really is a very versatile set. So, here is a completely different card… But not so very different from the card that was created by Tami White! Here is another CASE’d card.
I picked which color of the wonderful Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper I wanted to use first, which is really quite hard as they are all beautiful! My color scheme here is Lemon Lime Twist, Garden Green, and Lovely Lipstick. The lighter color for the flower and the stem were created by inking up the stamp and stamping onto a piece of scrap paper off before I stamped the layer. This technique provides the subtly needed for this type of two-step stamp. The lines on the envelope are one of the stamps in the stamp set. The photopolymer makes it easy to line them up.
A quick and simple inside that really pops by using the same basic layer dimensions as the front of the card. That little tiny flower really dresses it up!
Well, those are my projects for you today. I really hope that make you feel all warm and cozy inside because…
Remember, you can find the supply lists for both projects at the bottom of this post.
Keep on hopping along!
Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!
