I got so caught up in the Blog Tour yesterday I didn’t get a lot of time to stamp. I wanted to have something to post today so I decided a Clean and Simple Challenge was the way to go. Last week I missed a lot of challenges so it was time to try to catch up. This card was made based on this bedding from JC Penny’s. I love the simplicity of black and white, but I was drawn to the framed print above the bed and wanted to recreate that. I started with a 4 1/4 X 11 piece of Whisper White card stock and then layered it with a 4 X 5 1/4″ piece of Basic Black and again with a 3 7/8 X 5 1/8 piece of Whisper White. I embossed a frame on the top piece of Whisper White using my Fiskars cutter with scoring tool. Then to make it more pronounced I went over the lines with my Bone Folder. The circle is the 3rd from the outside on my coluzzle. I simply attached Basic Black, Going Gray and Basic Gray circles that were punched out with the 3/4″ circle punch. I stamped on an extra Basic Gray one with Whisper White ink and the Sweet Serendipity stamp set. I put a vintage brad through the center and have it up on a dimensional. I simply trimmed the edges of the circles overlapping the coluzzle circle with paper snips. The circle is then attached with dimensionals. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiment from Smarty Pants.
I finished the entire card in about 15 minutes and some of that was spent finding the show Colin wanted to watch. We are in for a rainy week, so hopefully I’ll get a lot of stamping done.
