Today's card is a monochromatic of black and white, with just a pop of pink. Berry Burst to be exact! When you don't have a lot of time for coloring, just a splash of color quickly add just a touch of color, without taking a lot of time. Or in my case, without me having to go find my glasses!
Isn't she adorable? Comfy, relaxed, and ready to claim this special day. Even though she's from the Christmas in the Making Stamp Set (available in just 2 days!), she's certainly more than a just for Christmas kind of girl!
This card seriously took me less than 10 minutes to put together, even with the little 'oops' I had with a stamp that faded on me. (Let's just say my original had two less layers than this one did!) It's just perfect for a last minute birthday, or special day kind of card!
***September 1st is the very last day to register for both Back to School Bingo and the 16-Card Holiday Catalog Extravaganza. Both need to be prepaid as I need to order and prepare products just for you! Please email me today to register for these events.
The Stamp! Smile! Repeat! Summer Stamp Camp is almost here! I'm busy checking off my to do lists as we get down to the last minute organizing and packing. Of course, it seems that for every thing I cross off, I add two more!
In the midst of all the camp frenzy, I found myself needing a birthday card! I love how the Memories and More Card Packs can quickly be combined with a little stamping and an embossed background to make a quick and simple card. The font from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set was exactly what I was looking for. Something small and delicate, that wouldn't distract from the other details on the card. This card took just minutes to put together, too, which was really appreciated this week!
It's gloomy and rainy out today . But no amount of clouds could darken your day if you received such a sunny birthday card. I know I shared a daisy card with you yesterday, but I just had to share this one, too because I have great news. The Daisy Punch is back in Stock! I know many of of you have been waiting to order yours, and now you can.
This card may look complicated with all of its color gradients, but it's super simple. This is a swap card I received from Bonnie Alexander and she used the Crushed Curry paint chip paper from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. I love the versatility of this paper stack and I have a feeling I'm going to be using it all year long. Combined with the Happy Birthday Thinlet and you've got a card that comes together super quick! And did you notice? There's no stamping on this card! What will they think of next?
This card uses very simple, basic layers, that are reduced by 1/4" with each layer.
Base: Crushed Curry, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Layer 1: Whisper White, 5 1/4" x 4"
Layer 2: Color Theory Designer Series Paper , 5" x 3 3/4"

What are you celebrating today? Is it a birthday? An anniversary? A new job? A new baby? An upcoming vacation? Or simply that it's Thursday and not Monday? Whatever the reason, do it with joy and spring in your step, just like this happy little fox from the Birthday Memories Suite. Reminiscent ofRichard Scarry's Busytown Books, or the animated characters from Disney, these happy, lighthearted woodland animals will bring a smile to anyone's face, no matter what the occasion.
And can you believe there is very little stamping on this card? The Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and coordinating Birthday Friends Framelits make for quick work with this lively suite. All I had to do was run the paper through theBig Shot and stamp the sentiment on the banner. That's it! Seriously cute and amazingly quick..

***Michelle's tip: A little bit of ink goes a long way! You don't need to saturate your sponge. Simply tap it a few times in the ink pad, and use a gentle "flicking" or brushing motion against the edge of the paper, to give it a nice, defined outline.
