Back to Basics:
Flicking through the pages tonight reminded me of how overwhelmed I was by the fact that someone had made those projects, and 'apparently' it was just as easy for me to do too! In saying this though, I didn't know where to start, and even though I had the basics...I didn't know how to use them.
So, this week, I've decided to return to the basics and to share a couple of easy things to incorporate in your own card-making when your beginning - so your project starting points don't seem so daunting. Tonight, I thought I'd share what I call the "Stamped Strip" technique, which is simply stamping onto a strip of cardstock, matting it onto a co-ordinating colour and then adhering it to the card front which is in another colour again. In the above card, I've also added some grosgrain ribbon, brads and the cheapest of all embellishments...piercing.
