Thinking of You

Hi there friends!!  Thanks for joining me yesterday for the Frame Pincushion post and tutorial.  I can’t wait until I have time to place around with that a little bit more.  It is definitely on my gift list.  In the meantime, I have a quick card to share today, and as I like to say, it really is simple.   I’m working to keep out of a rut and sometimes that means stretching your creative muscle.  I don’t think I do CAS (Clean and Simple) very well, but because of that I don’t want to quick trying.  Today my creative muscle stretch was to save time by forgoing the design paper.  It really makes me conjure up a different kind of card but it’s a great exercise.

I used two Impression-Obsession Backgrounds then stamped a sentiment on top.  I kept away from the ribbon and lace (this time), but pulled out one of the flowers I made on the flower loom (love that thing!!).  This one is made with wired sheer ribbon and that’s definitely the way to go.  I punched along the bottom of the card with a MS border punch then finally embellished with pearls.

Stamps: Impression-Obsession Cover a Card Thick and Thin Background, Cover a Card Ornate Floral , Background, TPC (sentiment)
Paper: Coredinations, Xpedx Brilliant White 140 lb Cover
Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink – Ice Blue, Prussian Blue
Accessories: Spellbinders Grand Large Labels, pearls, ribbon, pearl brad, Prima Pearls swirl, Pearl Picks, MS Border Punch

By the way, new stamps are being released over at JustRite Stampers today and all this week, bop over and have a look at the JustRite Inspiration Blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by today, see you soon!!

    Very pretty card today. Anything blue captures my eye and this one is so simple.

    Could you in the future explain how to put on a card the pearl flourishes. I see the packets in the craft stores, but am a afraid to try and put them on a card. Maybe a video? Of course if you’ve already done one, please point me there look on your site!ReplyCancel

    I LOVE your gorgeous blue card, Becca. Not exactly what I’d call clean and simple, but I’m sure it is for you. I love using background stamps. For some reason they are not as intimidating as designer paper.ReplyCancel

    Love this “simple” card.

    Could you please explain how to attach the pearl flourishes to the card. I’ve seen these products in the stores, but have been afraid to purchase them as I’m unsure how to use them. They look more complicated than putting a pearl on at a time :).ReplyCancel

  • Charlene DahlbergJune 29, 2011 - 8:19 am

    The Becca Bit on how to make the pin cushion was awesome! ;-)

    I love your card. Coincidentally I ordered ten of these cover-a-card stamps YESTERDAY while Scrapy-Land has their 15% off storewide coupon (SUMMER15 through June 30). They already have them discounted 15%, then with the extra 15% off coupon I got them for $8.66 each! So I am feeling like a really frugal bargain hunter, despite the fact that I ordered TEN of them, LOL!!!

    So I thank you very much for some timely inspiration, your card is absolutely beautiful and I like your “CAS” style!ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card Becca! I love those ribbon flowers you make. I need to try them. I love the pincushion idea too. I have some small frames I’ve never used and was going to give them away, but now I’m inspired to try my hand at making some of those also!ReplyCancel

    Clean & Simple!?!? Why? Your stuff is soooooo gorgeous. Compared to me, you ARE clean & simple. I strive to do something as beautiful as you do and not clutter up my paper so much. May never happen; we all have our style and what comes naturally to us. You are especially gifted.ReplyCancel
