Fifteen Minute Card Projects ... Pretties in Less Than /4 of an Hour

Pin It

Yes, it's simple ... yes, it's clean (read: plain) ... and why, yes, it DOES look rather spartan but it took less than 15 minutes! Whaddya want in 15 minutes?!?

This decidedly spartan 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Valentine's Day card was created with scraps of pomegranate cardstock run through the Cuttlebug in a 2 x 2 embossing folder ... yes, I AM starting to like those little guys, some DMC super-shiny thread, and a sticker/rub-on from MaMBI.

I always anticipate unfortunate errors whilst cardmaking, so I ran a fifth 'love stamp' through the Bug. When the highly anticipated unfortunate cardmaking error did NOT occur, I used the 5th embossed heart on my envie.

Cardstock: Bazzill Basic Textured Cardstock in Quartz and Pomegranate
Stamps: None
Ink: Ditto
Stickers: Me and My Big Ideas, Love and Romance Sayings
Fiber: Jewel Effects by DMC, #E815
Tools: Cuttlebug Die-Cut machine, Cuttlebug Love Heart 2 x 2 Embossing folder, Cuttlebug Postage Stamp Die
Envie: Papertrey Ink

Thanks for dropping by and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2008!

BTW, if you think THIS card is ugly just wait'll you see the pink and green one!

Another New Year, The Same Old New Year's Resolution

Pin It

Okay, so here's the thing: I resolved on January 1, 2007, that I would blog ... actively blog.

Well, that didn't happen ... what a surprise!

So, in the interest of consistancy, I'm making the same resolution again THIS new year.

And so it begins ...
