All About Neutrals

Oh…we have just had a couple GORGEOUS (but extremely windy) days here in Dayton, OH…high in the 70s…LOVE it!  But Monday…high of 39…gotta love this time of year!  LOL!!!  But this time of year also brings visions of the new catalog for demos and finding out what is staying and what is retiring.  I like to start using things from the catalog just in case it is going away and I didn’t play with it enough.  Fortunately the set I picked to work with is STAYING!!!  WOOO HOOO!  Out theme this week is All About Neutrals…just using neutrals on your card.

Is this a great (and extremely simple) card?  I think so!  And even though it is just in white, grey and black, really any color just about can be used for the grey panel for a whole different look!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Smoky Slate – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp the branch using Memento Black twice – once from each direction and the sentiment also in Basic Black.  Layer onto Basic Black 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Whisper White – cut out two each of the 3 flowers, add to card front
  • Add some clear Epoxy dots (from the Occasions Mini) and some Basic Rhinestones to the center of the flowers and scattered around to finish off

Isn’t that special?  And speaking of special…we are offering a new special collection – Barn Door Home Decor – the four seasons…

Do you LOVE extremely quick clean and simple cards?  Well you know that I do!

As you can see, I’m still playing with this color combo that I am IN LOVE with!  This is a based on a card I had pinned to one of my Pinterest boards.  I loved the clean design and when I was looking for ideas I came across it and turned it into my version.  I changed the stamps and sentiment and the embellishment along with the colors and mine is a two layer card and not a single layer one.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp leaf with Peek-a-boo Peach, Tangerine Tango and Pool Party and greeting in Memento Black, layer onto card front using dimensionals
  • Add Black Rhinestones to finish off.

Yep…that is all there is to the card but it is AWESOME!!!   Speaking of AWESOME, the brand new NOVEMBER Mini Session is COMING SOON and it is AWESOME!  We are featuring products from the HOLIDAY Catalog! Check out the FREE Be Merry Kit Bonus project when you purchase October & November together!

Do pin a lot of ideas on Pinterest?  Do you every MAKE any of the things you pinned?  Well, I do pin a lot…I use them for inspiration but don’t always exactly copy them.  Quite some time ago I pinned a card that had blue and orange leaves.  I LOVED it and wanted to great it.  Except for similar colors and the idea of using leaf images, I really didn’t copy it but really ended up with a FUN card!

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, run through the Plank embossing folder, layer on Pacific Point – 3 3/4 x 5 and add to card front
  • Pacific Point – 2 x 3 5/8, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/4 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp large solid and small solid leaf in Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point, cut out with matching framelits
  • Whisper White – cut out detailed leaf
  • Vellum – cut out solid large, solid small and detailed leaf.
  • Layer all the leaves together and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – 1/2 x 2 1/2, stamp greeting using Memento Black, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals
  • Add some Clear Faceted Gems to finish off
