Projects 89-90 of 365: Pumpkin Thank You’s September 22, 2010

A few days ago I stumbled across another blogger with a great Stampin’ Up! blog.  Her blog is Odden Designs (and while I didn’t copy the web address to link 😦 I do know it shows up right away if you google Odden Designs.  Well, she had these really cute, simple 3×3 thank you cards that I just loved.  So I had to make the 3×3 pumpkin card for myself (completely copied from her card) and then I made a simple modification by adding another, different shaped pumpkin and made it into a 4×4 card. So quick and simple that it will be hard for you to resist making these cards for yourself too 🙂

Project 88 of 365: Punched Stars Card

This is the second card in my “Day of Texture” cards that I’m posting today.  I really couldn’t decide what greeting to put on the front of this one, so you could use it as a notecard with no greeting on it, or there is plenty of space on the right side to add a greeting.  My first instinct was that this would make a perfect Father’s Day card, but since it is September I really didn’t want to commit to that 🙂  This would also make a good masculine birthday card or thank you card…

Seriously….It’s all about the embossing folder and a little ink to distress and bring out the embossing…love the effect.

Projects 83-86: How much time do you have? September 9, 2010

Where to start, Where to start?….

I had started stamping some 4×4 panels with the bees from the Just Buzzin By stamp set.  I was just randomly stamping these with black ink, and as I saw them all laying out I had a great idea.  What if I started with the same basic panel, but then finished each card with varying amounts of “extras” to show you what you could accomplish in 5, 10, 15, and 20 minutes.

It worked out great, because sometimes you need a card “right now”, so this 5 min notecard would work perfectly.  It is just the plain black/white bees mounted on 2 contrasting colors of cardstock.  It doesn’t get any simpler than this, yet it is so cute, and anyone would be happy to receive it with your personal note inside!!

Next, in 10 minutes you can color all the bees yellow (Daffodil Delight) to give it a little more pop…..

With 15 minutes you can go another step further by completely coloring the bees, even giving them rosy little cheeks, and mounting them on contrasting layers of cardstock.

If you have 20 minutes you can really deck this card out.  We have our panel with fully colored bees, mounted on several layers of cardstock, transformed into a 5 x 7 card, and then the braided taffeta ribbon (you braid this yourself from 3 strips of the 1/8″ ribbon).  This card is still super simple but with the coloring and the braiding it just takes longer.
