Clean & Simple Wednesday

I believe mid week we should all be able to still create even though our time is limited. Today’s card is a get well card.

A couple runs through your Big Shot machine plus 2 stamps and here you have today’s CAS card. Isn’t the stitching from the background die just beautiful? If you have any mid week time I hope to inspire you to create even the easiest of cards. Feel free to share your creations over in my Customer Facebook Group.

Tuesday’s Tip ~ Two Cards From CAS to “All Dressed Up”

:”

Welcome back stamp lovers!

Today I am here to share a Clean and Simple (CAS) card with all of you but I decided to also share tips on dressing up a card with added layers of detail.

Here is my CAS simple card design. Just a simple strip of double sided designer series paper. I used both sides to alternate the designs to really show off this beautiful paper. Then a simple strip of card stock, one stitched die cut and a single stamped sentiment. this gives such a sleek look and is quite striking. But what if we dress it up a little using this week’s Needlepoint Nook Suite of products…

As you can see I used everything the first card had plus more. The white space has been embossed using the stitched die from the bundle. The floral stamps have been stamped and die cut out using the coordinating dies. The stitched circle that the sentiment was stamped on also has a second scalloped layer. Then a few die cut leaves were used, also from the same bundle….. and POW!!!! A multilayered look with a lot of interest and dimension. (Quick tip…. Make sure to order Dimensionals in both the regular size as well as the mini’s. I will link these at the end of this post.) These really help with popping up some of the flowers to add even more to that dimensional look. Here is a close up photo…

I hope you have enjoyed this and feel inspired. The CAS card has sleek lines and is quite striking due to its extra white space and the ‘dressed up’ card has dimension and extra interest. Both designs will appeal to a wide variety of people. Now lets see a CAS & ‘Dressed Up” card that you have designed. CLICK HERE to head on over to my VIP Customer group on Facebook. Feel free to SHARE your personal projects. I Can’t wait to see them.

Melanie’s Must-have Monday ~ Needlepoint Nook

Hi Friends,

Welcome back to a Melanie’s Must Have Monday. This week we will bhe playing with the super fun Suite called Needle Point Nook Suite of products which includes the Needle & Thread Stamp & Die bundle along with coordinating paper and embellishments. Lets take a look….

This suite offers a wide array of coordinating products. This is perfect for all your crafty friends. I love all the layers that can be created with this collection of products.

Above here is the bundle. When purchased together you can save 10% ~ITEM # 150626

My first sample here shows lots of elements from this suite including the Stamps, Dies, Designer Series Paper, and the Old Olive Linen Thread. All these items will be linked up below for easier shopping.

Just look at the detail. The background stitched die leaves an authentic stitched design into the fabric…I mean paper. It makes the paper look as if it has been quilted. Just beautiful!

I hope your Monday is a beautiful one and that you will stick around all week long as we explore so many projects featuring this Needlepoint Nook Suite of products.
