Quite Curvy Preview

 Only three days away!  Yes, that's right, only three more days till the Curvy Celebrations Variety items are available for purchase!  I have been having fun with the products.  They are quite versatile as you will soon see.

Todays card is a simple note card size card so it measures 3.5 x 5.  Stampin' Up! sells the note cards with envelopes so that makes it even more simple as the base cards are already prepared for you.

Here is the card I made for you today.  It is cased from the sample pictures that were shared with us as demonstrators and I imitated it as closely as I could.  Detailed instructions can be seen in my YouTube video.
The DSP is 6x6 and it has Christmas designs and then regular patterns that could be used for any season.  The little birds are so cute too.

Here is a list of the items used to make this card:
  • Quite Curvy stamp set
  • Curvy Dies
  • Whisper White note cards and envelopes
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Real Red card stock
  • Blushing Bride card stock
  • Soft Sea Foam card stock
  • Real Red, Ivory, Soft Sea Foam Blends pens
  • Real Red, Melon Mambo markers
  • Classic Christmas DSP
  • Regular and Mini dimensionials
  • Stampin' Seal adhesive

Tis The Season For a Simply Saturday Card


Wow, time does fly doesn't it?  It is time for another Simply Saturday card.  For this card I pulled out a carried over punch called the Taillored Tag Punch.  

I can't say I've used this punch a lot but for today's card it creates a lovely quilted look when paired with the Tis The Season 6x6 designer series papers.

Look at all those lovely designs!  Some are holiday specific but there are a few that could be interchanged for other seasons as well.

Let's look at the card.
Getting into the season I couldn't resist letting Mr. Snowman join in on the fun.  He is a project I make using my Silhouette Cameo cutter.  But, the card is the main focus for today.  I have a video up on YouTube that shows how this was made so you'll want to check it out because there is a tip there that makes this card oh so simple that it qualifies for being a Simply Saturday card.
