Simple Monday

Good Monday morning to you! How was your weekend? Mine was fantastic, mostly due to the fact that it was a three day weekend for me! I got all of my little projects done, cleaned the house, spent time with my peeps and crafted for like 16 hours!! Now that’s a good weekend. I have two cards for you today. I made these last night, one was from some scraps I had left over and the other one was just because. Sometime you just need a simple card and that’s just what these two are.

The first one is really simple. I had these triangles left over from something else I was working on and I thought maybe just glue them down the center of a card base of Pool Party and have them point to a greeting. The greeting is from the Best of 25 Love Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Gray. The triangles are Basic Gray, Crumb Cake and Bermuda Bay. Super simple yet sleek and modern. Triangles are very big right now too so it’s a little trendy!

The second card is a case of a card that I had seen either on Pinterest or a magazine. Simple base and background of Whisper White. The feather is from the Fine Feathers Stamp Set and is stamped in Bermuda Bay (think I like the color a little?!) and the greeting is from the A Little Greeting Wood Mount Stamp Set. Some Calypso Coral spritzed and a little piece of Epic Day This & That Washi Tape and we are almost done. I happened to have some sequins that match the Bermuda Bay color perfectly so I added three! Again super simple card but it still has some wow factor. Perfect just let someone know you are thinking of them.

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!
