I have had a busy week and the next few days are not looking much better, but I still wanted to post a Fast & Fabulous Friday for you. In fact, here are FIVE!
|Calypso Coral - Petals A Plenty|
|Wisteria Wonder - Fancy Fan|
|Lucky Limeade - Dots|
|Pool Party - Chevron|
|Island Indigo - Argyle|
Stamps - Serene Silhouettes, Perfectly Penned
Paper - Whisper White
Ink - One of -Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder
Big Shot - Various embossing folders: Petals-A-Plenty, Fancy Fan, Perfect Polka Dots, Chevron, Argyle
Tools and Accessories - 1 3/4" Circle Punch, sponges, Baker's Twine (In Colours, 2010 - 2012)
I hope you can see how just by changing the embossing folder and the colour or placement of the stamped image & sentiment, you can make the same design of card look like a LOT of other things! And each card is complete in just a few minutes.
Okay - I'll be honest. Making any one of these cards is awfully fast. Making all 5 did take a bit more time :) But once you've decided where to place the circular stamped image, the rest just kind of falls into place. And isn't it neat how the same basic card can be altered in very slight ways to create new and original cards? I showed these 5 variations to my Private Card Class ladies yesterday and when they made this card, their versions were different still! Everyone added their own bit of imagination and creative combinations. I was totally blown away at how unique and gorgeous every single card looked.
Hope you enjoyed today's creative crash course in simplicity. Have a truly wonderful weekend.
God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
