Card set – clean & simple

So these cards started off as a challenge under friends. Some Skyping was involved, as well as lots of good laughs and lovely chatting! And a card recipe of course! We were to use (I hope I get this right): black and/or white, plus one extra color (and/or shades of that color), enamel dots, shapes, stamp. Here is what I did:

Sanna LippertNow I still have several Studio Calico kits from previous years which urgently need to get scrapped/used, so I dug through them and found all these lovely bits and pieces. Only the felt bow is by Bella Blvd and quite new, everything else is from kits I used to order „back then“. Oh, and the black paper is by SODALICIUOS. Sanna Lippert

The 3 cards with pink, yellow and blue color I did according to the recipe (we were only to do one, but I could not stop there). And the last one is mainly in black and white – this one I kept for later, all the others are in the mail, or were delivered personally to my scrappy friends :-). Sanna LippertAnd what did I notice, I quite enjoyed creating after a recipe for a change. Someone else giving orders and making plans and me just following those. So much fun! And another surprise – I really, really like my clean & simple style cards!!! Quite much actually. I hope that the recipients will like them too.

The best part? The chatting and giggling with like minded people! Always the best bit!! Have missed that recently. It has been too long since the last time. And again I have to say that this hobby would be only half as fun without all the friends I´ve gotten through it!

Happy crafting, lovelies!!!

Celebrate

I am always creating cards in advance for those occasions that come unexpected. Then I just go to my card box and grab a card. So this again is a card I´ve created for my „card box“ to wait for it´s destiny :). And the current Cardabilities challenge (#115) was so nice that I just could not resist it. Here is my take on their challenge:

 

I´ve used some pretty old paper on this one – still trying to reduce the stash in my studio. And then I just added some wood veneer, pearls and some orange twine and stamped a small sentiment. Very clean & simple this time, but I like it!

Happy crafting,
