Simple Sundays #1 - Mosaic Madness Banners

Hey Stampers,

Happy Sunday to you !! It is a gorgeous day in Newfoundland today - I have all my windows open so the warm air can blow through my house. We were outside all yesterday, and plan to go outside again after lunch. I was doing a bit of laundry this morning, and since my laundry room is also my Craft Room I decided to make a quick card ! I have been really drawn to simple cards lately. Something about a card that uses minimal products and that you can create in about 15 minutes is SO wonderful - who doesn't have 15 or 20 minutes to spare ?! I am going to start a series today called Simple Sundays - it probably wont be every Sunday but I will come back to it from time to time. My first in this series uses an idea that I saw on Stampin' Connection from the talented Nicole Tugrul (www.becreativewithnicole.blogspot.com). She made 2 really sweet cards using this fun design, and I wanted to try one for myself ! Heres what I came up with with the awesome Mosaic Madness and Banner Greetings stamp sets.


Isn't that cute !?! I am SO in love with this fun color combo - Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry and Strawberry Slush. Aren't they so fun and fresh !?! For my stamped piece, I used a piece of Whisper White measuring 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" and made this fun repeating pattern. It took no time at all using my Stamp-a-ma-jig ! I then cut a banner end on the bottom of it. I layered this onto a piece of Strawberry Slush measuring 2" x 4", also with a banner end, using some Dimensionals. I wrapped some of the so sweet 1/4" Rich Razzleberry Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon around the top, and added a fun little bow with a glue dot. I stamped my sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and sniped it out with my Paper Snips. I added a tiny scalloped edge that I made with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and a scrap of Strawberry Slush to it, and added it to my stamped panel with some Dimensionals. I embossed my Bermuda Bay card base with the Modern Mosaic embossing folder, and then added my panel right on top ! So quick and easy !! And of course, we needed some bling with some Basic Rhinestones. LOL

So thats my Simple Sunday card today !! I am so in love with all of these new products. They are available on FRIDAY (May 31st) so scoop them up then !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
