That is what this card is all about.....being quick and easy. This is one of the cards from my card class. I was actually showing the Adorning Elements Dies and Embossing Folders and how well they compliment each other. This is also a great way to use up some scrap DSP (Designer Series Papers) which is 12x12 paper printed on both sides. I hope you enjoy the card and keep coming back to my blog to visit.
I just had my Open House to debut my new business this last Thursday. It was fun getting ready for and I was excited to start a new journey.
Here are some pictures before the Open House started. The first one is my display table. Didn't have to use a big table since I don't have a lot of stock built up yet.
Due to the fact that I have a small house I couldn't keep everything together. Here is how I set up my catalogs and order forms. Kept them out of the way but had easy access.
Of course we can't forget about a Make N Take table. It was across from the catalogs. Everything was really handy and had directions typed up (in a large font) to help with making the card.
What can't we forget?.....Snacks!!! I kept it very casual as to not overwhelm the guests or me (trying to get them done).
The last picture is of my Make N Take. I actually cased this idea off Pinterest. I don't remember where I found it but I liked the idea. I used what paper I had the most of but I think it would be great in any color. It was fast and simple. No one had to get overwhelmed doing it.
Hope you enjoyed the little trip to my Open House. I so much appreciate everyone that got to come out to it. It was nice seeing everyone!
I was playing with different colors of cardstock and really love the looks of these colors together. Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mamba. I also loved the different textures with the embossing folders and then adding the stamp flowers along with the Itty Bitty Banner and saying. Not to mention the small amount of DSP paper for the scalloped border.
Sometimes it is just plain fun to mix and match and see what you can come up with.
I hope everyone is getting to enjoy their day today. I have had a nice day so far. Got up and went to church but left there early to go see my grandson compete with his high school percussion band. What a treat. I love that he has an interest in band and keeps himself busy with it.
I am now down in my craft room to play a bit before going back to church....yes I go twice on Sunday's. My hubby and I love going to church and very rarely miss. BUT before I break out the supplies to create I thought I would post a card today.
The card I chose for today makes me thing "Happy" when I see it. I love the colors: Indigo Blue, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green and Tangerine Tango. Sounds like fun doesn't it. I also used Happy Watercolor DSP. I am loving the print with the circles on it but had to add some words to it. Just wanted to break those circles up a bit. The other things I used is Flower shop stamp set and the Pansy punch along with the Adorning Accents die. I hope you enjoy the card!
I really love how this card turned out. I am sure it will be in one of my upcoming classes. The colors scream "Happy" to me. I love it.
The items I used were: Happy Watercolor and Petite Petals stamp sets; Petite Petals and Scallop Tag punches; Lots of Dots embossing folder; Gumball Green cardstock; Watercolor Wonder DSP; Whisper White cardstock; Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango and Basic Black inks.
Hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I enjoyed making it.
I am going to host an Open House to debut my new Stampin Up business. I have finally gotten everything organized and started doing some creating. I will be having my Open House this coming Thursday, February 28th. I am trying to decide on a Make N Take...which I should have already had done. This is one of the cards I did. I really like it and think it would be easy enough not to take a lot of time since I am doing this in a 4 hour time span and people can come and go. I used the Flower Shop and Petite Pairs stamps sets along with the Pansy Punch and the Adorning Accents die and embossing folder. These colors always pop out at me so I really like them. Hope you like it too.
Happy Friday to everyone since it is almost Friday here.
