Simple Saturday II

This is my second post of the day, so if you are visiting for the first time, please scroll down to check out Simple Saturday I.Thank You_Mar 2010

This card is my take on FTL#81, which is featured on the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. It’s so nice of those gals to come up with a sketch for my Simple Saturday offering!

Fun, too, is the fact that this one is a little out of the box. I used a Stampin’ Up brass stencil to pierce the circles on textured cardstock, which I then filled in with a needle and embroidery floss in primary colors. Kinda cute. Easy. Different.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy Textured cardstock; White Daisy and Cranberry cardstock; Cranberry ink pad; Thank You stamp set; Red, green, blue, and gold embroidery floss; Needle; Stampin’ Up brass stencil.

Oh, wow! The hours are flying by. This card came about when I was in the midst of cleaning up my corner. Time to get back at it.

Hope you are having a great day! Later …

Honey, if you embroidered each circle, I would not call that simple! But it's really stunning. So nice!

Carolyn Christie said...

Pretty card!! Looks hard to make?? Love it!!

Alanna said...

Um yeah, I definitely wouldn't call this simple with all the floss used. I love the bright colors and all the circles.

Kathi,
It's a great card, but anything that requires me to thread a needle is not simple! My eyes . . .

LOVE the color pattern & cheerfulness of it! The earlier card is just so elegant with the embossing and the pretty pearls!

Wonderful!

Oooohhhh this is a card after my heart! LOVE it! Love the colors and the texture from the floss. I can tell that this is NOT hard to create, although it looks like it could be.

Awesome, Kathi!
