Plain or with Pizzazz? (MIY Monday #3)

Today I wanted to show you how pretty a card can be simply using stamps, ink and paper!  It truly doesn’t take a lot of materials (or time) to make something special.  Additionally, I show you how adding just a couple of embellishments you can really make your project pop!

I was inspired, yet again, from the catalog (page 176).  These colors are so soft and elegant I was drawn to them.

The card came together very quickly using just a basic tool kit.  Here is a step by step video showing you how I did it.

Thanks with Varied Vases (MIY #2)

Today’s Make it Yourself Monday card was inspired by artwork in the catalog!  I love the bright and cheery colors of the ‘Hello’ card found on page 45 and was inspired to make my own version using the supplies I already own.

The catalog is an excellent resource for inspiration, whether you are looking for color inspiration, card design or just trying to find other ways to use the supplies you have.

I love the color palette in the original card in the catalog.  That was one element I knew I wanted to copy!


I don’t have the textured impressions folder that was used in the inspiration card and I really wanted to use a different card design so this is where I began to stray.  But that is OKAY!!!

For you visual learners, I have created a step by step video.  It isn’t a fast frame like last weeks.  I’m trying to decide which I prefer.  Feel free to let me know your preference.
