KISSaturday Nature Walk & a NEW winner!

Good thing I can do a KISSaturday/Sunday card for you - I haven't seen my stamp room since Wednesday and with hubby's b-day today and a Superbowl Party tomorrow, a KISSable card is just what I needed since I wanted to get inky, but really have a lot to be doing! (I know you all can relate - we all need a KISSable card time and again :)
I also wanted to announce a NEW WINNER to my blog candy, drumroll again please....

Kim: What a yummy bunch of stuff you have to give away.....Count me in please. Have been following you for some time now and would have a really difficult time narrowing down any single thing. LOVE all that you have to post. TFS!

WaHoo Kadie, please email me your address and I will get the goodies out to you asap!! :)















Lets get onto to our KISSaturday card - Keep It Simple
* Head for Texture! - whenever I'm looking to simplify, I go for my Big Shot and an Embossing Folder. Now don't fret if you don't have a Big Shot (but seriously, why not?! I KNOW you'd love it!!!!), you could eliminate this step and still have a purdy card. I just think that one easy step with the Big Shot just steps it up a notch with minimal effort and time!
* Zip that Whisper White card through with the new Framed Tulips Embossing Folder,in the Occasions Mini, isn't it great?
* KISS with lots of White Space - Ink up your image, from Nature Walk, with SU Markers to get a variety of color on your rubber, here using Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizazz (I did use Riding Hood Red on the flowers as well to fulfill the PPA color challenge, but you can barely see the difference in these small blossoms), give a huff of breath to remoisten ink on stamp and stamp. Keeping with lots of white space, I added a simple Rich Razzleberry sentiment from Sincere Salutations.
* Pear Pizzazz seam binding bow wrapped with a green Circle Rhinestone Ice Brad kreates the perfect embellishment to finish off your KISSaturday card, 1-2-3!

And because it was so quick to kreate, I decided to show you how it would look without the Framed Tulip Embossed look - still purdy, right?!












Which do you prefer?? I'd love you to share your thoughts!

Thanks for stopping in for that little dose of me! Happy Superbowlin' and I hope you have some time to get inky and kreative!
Any questions, I am always just a click away!

Abaolutely gorgeous! I love both of them but I think I like the first one better! There's something about that embossing folder! It just adds the right touch to a card! Thanks for sharing a BEAUTIFUL CARD with us! I think I am gonna have to CASE this one!

These are two very purdy cards! Love how you made a one layer card with the bow adding dimension and WOW to them!

Christy Q said...

Gorgeous cards!! Both are beautiful but I will admit I'm partial to card #1 with the embossing. It adds so much depth to the card.

They are both so elegant. I fear stamping on one layer cards. You do it with such ease. I like that you showed both cards. Pages? Hugs,

Yes, the second one is still purdy, but I do prefer the first one with the embossed tulips. Gorgeous bow. Happy Birthday to hubby.

The seam binding/Ice Brad combo is GREAT! I really love this whole card, Kim!
