Yup, I'm REALLY late for Wednesday!

But it STILL counts - it's before midnight, my time!! :D

Today, I'm going to give you two REALLY basic, simple layouts that feature Designer Series Paper. To change the look and feel of the cards, change the colors and/or the DSP! Both of these cards are monochromatic, but it would be really easy to change it all around! :)

Card stocks: Pacific Point, Whisper White

Stamp set: Oval All

Ink: Pacific Point

Accessories: Pacific Point DSP, scallop oval punch, eyelet border punch

Do you see what I mean? You really can't get much easier than this!

Card stocks: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Basic Black

Ink: White craft

Stamp set: Close as a Memory

Accessories: Walk in the Park DSP, embossing buddy, heat tool, white embossing powder

Again, so simple but SO elegant. We used Basic Gray ink on the inside, and stamped the long verse from the stamp set inside, then off-stamped the flowers and stamped it lightly over the verse. It's very subtle, but not morbid!

OK. I'm off here for tonight! :D Mom's birthday and Mother's Day cards are done - her birthday is two days after Mother's Day this year - and I can't wait to show you what I made her! (Can't show you before Sunday, because she checks the blog out sometimes!:D)

I got more new toys today, too - and am planning some fun things with the one I've been waiting on. Don't forget that NEXT FRIDAY AND SATURDAY are the next blog tour!

Some people aren't sure that the blog tours are a good thing - "Why do you want to give your customers access to someone else? You're going to lose them!" But I totally disagree! The more I think about it, the more I realize that my stamping style is definitely not some of yours, or my regular customers'. But I trust that, when you see something you want to know more about, you'll ask me. I have faith that you know ME, and when you're excited about learning something new, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

So. I'll be back sometime on Thursday (when I know what to post!:D), but I hope YOU will also take the time to STAMP SOMETHING before I am! :D Have a wonderful day!
