KISSaturday and Blog Candy

As much as I love an intrique card with embellishments galore, I just don't always have the time to kreate them. I am starting to enjoy the KISSable card just as much, because I can still accomplish something cute in less than half hour! Its becoming easier to kreate in a pinch! And if you own punches and/or the Big Shot, it speeds up the process even more and you still get the wow factor (so important, right?!) There is no right or wrong way to KISS - just Keep IT Simple Sweetie, whatever 'simple' means to YOU! So here we go with my KISSaturday

* A crisp and clean piece of Whisper White cardbase
* Add texture! What can be easier for that instant pop of pizazz than a little bit of texture. Zip it through the Big Shot with Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.
* Blender Pens and line are images are great to easily add a variety of color. Grab a line art image, like Birthday Bakery, hostess lev 1 set, and those Blender Pens and have fun coloring.
* Add some more fun pizazz to your image. A little Dazzling Diamonds goes a long way. Accented each cake with a little sparkle using some Crystal Effects and sprinkled on the diamonds. Scrumptious!
* Get punchy!! Corner Punch on opposing corners for something different! Melon Mambo matte with a punched Scallop Trim Border. And punched Large Tag - always remember to stamp your image first than punch. When someone new attends my classes, I always get that light bulb moment! They are amazed thinking my placement is perfection! No no no sillies - stamp than line up your punch around your image! Ahhhh, the light bulb goes off!!
* A little ribbon (Melon Mambo polka dot- retired, sorry) a faux knot and a tag danglin from Linen Thread finish off my KISSaturday card! Hope you like it

Kim, this is the perfect CAS card. You may have created it in 30 minutes, but it sure looks like you spent longer than that! I love the polka dot background and the little bit of pink ribbon. Beautiful.
Thanks for visiting my blog on the Paper Players blog hop today. I really appreciated you stopping by.
