Clean and Simple with Hanging Garden

Hello and Happy Tuesday! Today, I want to share with you a quick, clean and simple card I put together using the Hanging Garden stamp set found in the new Spring Occasions catalog. It's a card that you can very easily re-create with little to no effort and yet, it still has a bit of elegance about it being black and white.
But, before I get into all the details about the card, I want to update you on the fact that we are in the last days of being able to get in on the Paper Pumpkin 5 year Anniversary Celebration. If you would like to get in on this party, you must subscribe by 11:50 PM MT Saturday night! Even if you're not 100% sure you will like Paper Pumpkin (trust me, you'll love it), get a 1 month pre-paid subscription for $20 so you can at least try it out AND get in on the FREE gift being included in the March box (did I mention the Anniversary box is going to be a special design?) Or, better yet, do a 3 month pre-paid subscription and qualify for a FREE Sale-a-bration level 1 choice! Interested? Click Here to shop Paper Pumpkin.
Now for the card.


I started with a basic A2 card base of Whisper White, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4". I adhered a piece of the Petal Passions DSP, cut 2 1/8" x 5 1/2" to the center of the card front with Snail® adhesive and wrapped the card front with the Whisper White 1/4" Organza ribbon and tied it into a bow. I stamped the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the lower right corner and then I stamped the hanging flower pot image onto a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock in the same ink and punched it out using the 2" Circle punch and layered it onto a piece of Basic Black that I punched out using the Starburst punch. I added some Dimensionals and added it to the card front. And that completed this card.
As I stated, it's quick, it's clean and it's very simple. If you would like to recreate this card, all of the materials are listed below and can be obtained through my online store just by clicking the links. If you enjoyed this card and would like to receive tutorials much like it, please join my mailing list by clicking here.
I would love to hear your comments, so please feel free to leave them below as well and I wish you all an amazing day!
Happy Stamping!

A Little Timeless Elegance and Hostess Rewards

Hi there! Happy Tuesday! Have you had an opportunity to look over that retirement list? If not, don't wait too much longer. Lots of stuff has already begun to sell out. I missed out on stocking up on Crystal Effects. I love that stuff, not only is it a great glue, but it is also great for creating the look of glass and adds dimension and shine to projects. Anyhoo, you can see the retiring products here.  And right now, I have a party open and if we reach $150 in sales, the Hostess Rewards will be up for grabs! I will close the party next week on 5/5/2016 at 4pm. If our grand total before shipping and tax is $150 or greater, I will place everyone that placed an order in for a drawing to receive the hostess rewards and I will contact you to find out what free products you would like to use your hostess rewards for.We are only $50 away from earning those hostess rewards...soooo, there is a pretty good chance someone will get those rewards and it might just as well be you, right? To qualify, just place an order of any amount through my on-line store using the Hostess Code: T9Q4A39S

Anyway, my project today takes a little twist on the basic Black and White card simplicity. Instead of white, how about Very Vanilla? In this card, the DSP I used is from the Timeless Elegance Designer Series paper. Isn't it gorgeous? I just love this paper.
I used the lacy look paper and the stamp set I used is Choose Happiness. Both of these are on the retirement list and I am so sad to see them go. Once again, one of those go to sets that I reach for again and again. But, as they say, all good things must come to an end right?
Well here is the card:
So what are your thoughts? What retiring set are you sad to see go? Leave me a comment below and let me know. And don't forget about the chance to win Hostess Rewards. Just place an order of any amount to qualify using the Hostess Code: T9Q4A39S
In the meantime, Happy Stamping,
