Playing With A Simply Scrappin' Kit

Happy Labor Day to my American friends!  It's nearing the end of the day here, and it's rained the entire day.  Yay for much-needed rain, boo for the timing on a holiday.  My husband is cooking some barbecue smoked ribs for dinner, and we'll have fresh Jersey corn on the cob.  Yum!

I played with a retired Simply Scrappin' Kit from Stampin' Up!, and made a whole bunch of simple cards.

Here's one for the Moxie Fab World Card Design Handbook Asymmetry Challenge:


It's also being submitted to Simon Says Stamp - 'Anything Goes', and The Paper Players - 'Leaves or Trees' (I've got a leaf, 'tho it's not the autumn kind ;)


The Simply Scrappin' kit also helped me make these:




Easy peasy, and a lot of fun, too!

Because they were each so simple, I added touches of Liquid Pearls in Lemon Yellow on every flower center for a little something extra, and a bit of twine on some too:


Have yourself a beautiful day or evening, wherever you are!



Dimensions: 4.25" x 5.5" each
Stamps: Truly Appreciated, Essential Messages - Hero Arts
Paper: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Certainly Celery - SU
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko
Fibers: twine - Creative Impressions
Other: stickers from Simply Scrappin' Kit (retired) - SU; Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls - Ranger

Those Scrappin' Kits do make into cute cards! Love your added touches. We had sun here, but not very warm. BTW, I'm signed up for Feedburner, but I'm still getting your emails through FeedBlitz.

WOW Colleen! These cards are so beautiful! I love every one of them in all of those sweet colors. I hope your Labor Day was fun. It rained here too, and I feel the same as you about it. So, our grilled steaks became "grilled" in the house steaks but they were delicious. Wish I had some of those ribs too!
hugs,
Ellen
