Cute-n-Classy (ssnotime53)

I could not wait to get home from work on Friday and hit my stamp studio (okay-okay, it's really my dining room)! This week's stamp simply challenge issued by Sharon at No Time To Stamp was to follow a class act ... Jennifer Buck, one of the Stamp Simply team members. This was a jolly good time for me, because I normally like to doo-dad my cards just to the point that they can still fit in the envelope! LOL Well, Jenni, I gotta tell ya, you made a believer outa me .... cute-n-classy really rocks! My first card was a CASE of THIS card made by Jennifer, after reviewing her blog and her SCS Gallery. After I stamped and colored the corner flower/flourish from Hero Arts Clear Birds and Branches, I added diagonal scores at 1/2 inch intervals using my scor-pal. This allowed me to stamp the flower border using a "grid" so they were evenly placed. It really was EPLS (easy peasey lemon squeezy - as Jennifer says)! The card I CASED had a layer of vellum over the top, but I cut a clear acetate cover which almost makes it looked framed under glass! I then added a bow and put the crystals right on top of the clear acetate, along with the sentiment.
Well, call me BUCK-AROO because I went on to make a second card! Hey - this EPLS stuff is addictive - I recommend it! Notice the diagonal scores again? Well, okay dokey schmokey, I'll admit that the scor-pal IS one of my fav tools! Thanks for visiting. Whatcha waitin' for? Go create something Cute-n-Classey with the No Time To Stamp gang!
