FTL 260 – Smile!

This card took me about 10 minutes to put together!  I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw the cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com’s sketch.  Have you heard this before?  *grins* I say it often.  Anyway, what a fun card!  I love the Tape It stamp set.  I could use it all day…. well, I could but I am getting ready for craft fair season!  LOL

FTL258 – Dare to Dream

Here I am again, THIS time I have a little more time on my hands.  I was able to actually sit down, do some crafting AND make a card!  WOO HOO!!  YAY, me!! LOL

This time, when I did the cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com layout for THIS week, I didn’t really have a stamp set, color scheme or anything in mind… So this card, I almost had to force out of me… but it really wasn’t that hard!! LOL!!  It came together and flowed as I started creating.  I am really pleased with the way it turned out!  Btw, the strip under the flowers is Early Espresso.  For some reason, it looks black.  This card may be prettier in person!

Clean&Simple 257

My name is Christy Schroeger and I am a cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com junkie.    I admit it!  Every time I see a layout, I have to do it.  It’s a compulsion!  When I saw layout 257, I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do.  My love of butterflies only made this card EASY for me.  With the stamp set and punch bundled until the end of the month, it was just a no-brainer! *grins*  I saw this layout a week ago.  I have been itching to make this card because I had it all worked out in my head!  But with the other responsibilities of life, I had to put this on hold.

This past weekend went way too fast.  At the same time, it went pretty slow, as far as my crafting is concerned.  So, this morning, I immediately decided it was time to stamp.  When I saw the layout for the card, I knew, again, just what I wanted to use, stamp-wise.  I also decided to use colors that I don’t normally use.  It took me about 5 minutes to put this card together and I am really liking it.  I actually think I might make a few more of these but for now, here is my super fast card!  The design layout is from cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com

Clean And Simple 255

Every week, I stop what I am doing (this week started craft fair crafting) and try something different.  Usually, I go to cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com because that’s my style.  I love clean, simple cards.  I can get fancy… but usually it’s inspired by someone special or a card someone else created.  I live here, in the clean and simple section.  I see the layout and get to work.  I usually know exactly what I am going to do when I see the layout.  So, instead of my normal neutrals color scheme (although l have been using this color scheme a lot lately) – I decided to use the Afternoon Picnic color scheme.  Very Vanilla, Wisteria Wonder, Coastal Cabana, and Basic Gray (there’s a couple more I just didn’t use them).

Anyway, here’s my card – I wanted to use the new photopolymer stamp set – Another Thank You!  I LOVE IT!! I’m going to use it again soon too!! The really big thank you would make another amazingly clean and simple card!   Oooo… got an idea!  Ok… You will see this later on this week!

Good morning!  I have been up early all week and it seems that my mojo is in high gear in the morning.  HUH?? Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a night owl.  But with the latest schedule, getting a high-schooler to school on time, this lady is getting up early!  ANYWAY, here’s my take on this week’s sketch from Clean&Simple.  It was quick!  I love it!  This is my kind of stamping!

I often visit the clean&simple blog but rarely do I actually post a card.  Today, I thought I would actually post!  This card is super cute, super clean and super simple!  I love it!  It was the fastest card I made today!

I put their layout suggestion and my card together…
