The Simple Things

Happy Monday hoppers! Happy President’s Day! I have today off from work, yippee!

Take a peek at the card that I have for you today. Pretty simple, but oh so fun to make! I accented the leaves with a white gel pen – love that way it came out! I also used colors inspired by this week’s Play Date Cafe’s Challenge.

Inchies – ever heard of them? They’re 1×1 inch squares of little artwork. You can use small images or large ones and punch out a 1 inch square from anywhere on the larger design. It’s fun because you see the world on a much smaller scale than normal!

Mojo Monday’s sketch #147 gave me a great opportunity to do an Inchie card using Ippity stamps. I had a lot of fun and like the look! Just imagine how many different variations you could do with this!

I’ve been working with metal lately and surprise, surprise, have more to share with you.

This card uses a double emboss technique where you emboss the metal with a Cuttlebug, Sizzix or other type of embossing folder first. Since the metal is silver with one side painted, emboss so that the raised side is the colored side. After embossing, rub the design with a sanding block. It really makes the image POP out!

Next, run the same piece of metal through BUT with a DIFFERENT design folder this time. I chose the herringbone texture for a high contrast. Sand that design a little too. Now you have a double embossed design element! Pair it with a beautiful sentiment from “The Simple Things” set and you’ve got a winning card.
