You Mean The World To Me… In 2014!!

HAPPY 2014!! I am SOOOOO pumped for this new year, and I know it’s going to be AMAZE-BALLS!!! My resolution for this year is to be MORE positive!  I am going with the mind set, think it and it will be… I spend WAY too much energy on stressing about the “what-if’s” and I am going to focus more on the “now!”  So now you know what my resolution is for the new year, what’s YOURS?  Leave a comment to THIS POST sharing what your New Year’s Resolution is and maybe there is a little somthin’-somthin’ in it for you?

While you recuperate from the festivities of last night I have a cute simple card to share with you.  I used a simple technique that I haven’t done in a while, that I absolutely love!!  I call it Tone-on-tone layering…. basically you take a shape (any shape will do…) created from card stock that is the same color as the card base itself… you could use a punch shape or in my case a framelit share- see what I mean,

Simple patterns create interest for cards

I took the smallest starburst framelit (coming out in the Occasions Catalog in JUST 2 days!!) and made a bunch of them, then I used snail to secure them to the card front in a scattered pattern… SIMPLE!!  Of course that WASN’T enough for me… so I BLING-ED them up with DAZZLING DETAILS!  Then I used this FUN embossing folder from the NEW CATALOG too called SCALLOP TEXTURED EMBOSSING FOLDER and paired that with the SCALLOP RIBBON BORDER PUNCH for the outline of the center piece.

I love the sentiments in this set... so great!

I love this NEW set called STARBURST SAYINGS from the NEW Catalog, and it comes as a bundle with coordinating framelits- AWESOME-SAUCE!!  Simple card created in 1, 2, 3!! I LOVE Those kinds of cards… this came together fairly easy as I was inspired by the challenge photo from Stampin’ Celebration this month, see…
