Simply Serene Silhouettes

Hi Everyone,
I’m back with another cool sketch from Stamping and Blogging. Who says things have to be difficult to be pretty? Not me! I’m the Queen of Simple and Easy!! lol
Today sketch is a simple one and I kept it that way….I tried my best to over complicate it and make it wonderful but you know what? That’s not me! So here is my simple and I think pretty card for todays sketch challenge.
serene silhouettes s&b card
I have just a few elements in there but I think it works and makes a statement. I hope you do too. I simply used Whisper White Card Stock, Memento Black Ink, a Blender Pen and a Red Marker. I did use a Red Ink Pad for the Greeting. That’s it. I also used my Magic Bow Maker to make my perfect little bow. (It’s available at the top of my blog).

Here is the sketch if you’d like to play along.
….and a list of supplies that I used to make this card.

I love, love, love this Star Framelit and the Fabulous “Under the Tree” Specialty Designer Series Paper. I hope you do too.
I flipped the sketch on this a bit as I wanted to use this double star I had made on this card and liked it better going this way.

Blooming With Kindness & The Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,
Welcome back! This months theme for the Stamper’s Dozen is “Gratitude”.
I’m sure you came here from the talented Patty Chenails blog….if not make sure to check it out.
previous button
I had this card in mind for it as it has fall colors and one of my oldies but goodies sets, Blooming with Kindness. I hope you like it.
My color of choice is Cajun Craze. I used the main image and stamped it randomly all over the back mat. I love how it looks so textured. I then inked up the image and removed the stem ink and used my Old Olive Marker to ink it….then stamped the image onto Very Vanilla and cut out using the Oval Framelits.
I cut the gold Glitter paper in 1/2 “ strips and pieced it on the sides of the card as a faux mat. The sentiment is from Truly Grateful and stamped and cut using a piece of the glitter paper beneath it. The bow was made using my sweet little Magic Bow Maker (available at the top of my blog) and adhering it with a glue dot.
I stamped the image on the inside of the card as well as on the front of the Envelope. What do you think of the swanky Envelope Liner to match. Love how it pulls everything together. Hope you do too.
Here are the supplies I used for my card.
Now I hope you will move on to the next blog which is Jan's Blog...she's always got some Fabulous things going on.

Thanks for stopping in. I’ll be back soon. Smile
