A little help from my friend

img_7397card38

While stamping one night last week my inspiration left me and I fiddled around with designer paper for a while without getting anywhere.  The answer to my problem was of course, to scan through Sharon’s archives at No Time to Stamp.  There are loads of simple but impressive cards over there.  This is the one I chose to CASE

Isn’t this such a cool card and so straight forward to make.  I used my 1¼” punch and my 1 3/8″ punch to make the button and the cropodile for the holes. I tied the ribbon through, popped the buttons up on a few Stampin’ dimensionals and that’s it. Thank you Sharon for your never ending supply of inspiration.

Supplies:

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers
Inks:Riding Hood Red, Certainly Celery
Cardstock: Whisper white, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Delicate dots d.p., Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Bella Rose d.p.
Also:  circle punches, cropodile, olive grosgrain ribbon, celery twill ribbon

  3. Oh these are fabulous! Love the simple/elegant design.

  4. I remember Sharon’s card — so pretty! And yours, with those lovely, soft colors is simply ideal for a get well card. It could go for either gender, too, which makes it all the more useful. I love this design.
