TSOT 571 Clean and Simple

 This is what I would call clean and simple card, what do you think?   I decided to play with the stamp set from the 2022 mini catalog from Stampin Up called Fond of Autumn. The stamp set is unique in that it has a large image that has two different dies that will cut it. One cuts the whole peace out and the other one cuts it into four different pieces. Here I’ve used two different pieces the flowers and the sprig with the berries on the bottom.  I did cut two of the flower pieces to use. Some new DSP paper to follow the card sketch and the card was pretty well done just added a sentiment from the stamp set. The banner Die is also included in this set with a few sentiments to use on it. 

  Thanks for stopping bye looking forward to see what you do with the clean and simple card.

TSOT 569. 😟

 Oh dear I’m so sorry everyone.  I had to make an emergency out of state trip for a funeral.  I had the perfect stamp for this picture and just didn’t have time to make a card.

TSOT 567. Plants

 Oh my goodness, I just about missed putting a card up. I’ve been so busy visiting family out of town and getting everything from the garden put up that it just hit me today Monday and I hadn’t put my card on yet. So I saw this sketch and the theme and my plan was to use this bigger stamp as a type of background.  Adding plants over and around  it but it just wasn’t working out. So I decided to just follow the theme. I have quite a bit I need to get done before My sister returns to visit before she flies home to Florida. I have a card class coming up which I am not ready for!!!  I hope you all will forgive me for not using the sketch. I really did want to try something with this one as it is so unique. the others on the design team did such a great job with it. I hope to see something that you did with it. I might try to work with the sketch some other time and put something up on my blog it intrigues me and I’d like to see what I could do with it when I have more time to sit down and think about it. Thanks for stopping bye and I hope you have a wonderful day.

This type of card is called a monochromatic card that means you use one color scheme with your neutrals. I kind of liked keeping it simple.  My sister will enjoy this she’s a lover of green, bike ride or a walker, has many plants sitting outside her door. I thought of her when I saw it and I decided she will be the recipient of this card.  Sometimes it’s nice to keep things simple, and then know exactly who to send the card to.

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
