Clean and Simple Fun

Mornin' peeps!

Today's share consists of two very easy cards.  One is for my Chemo Card Angel lady, and one is for a very sick little girl that has recently been diagnosed with leukemia.

This first card was one that my friend Shirley had picked out for us to try at one of our 'play' days!  We take turns with ideas, and it's always a lot of fun to see what the other finds to CASE!

Amuse CS, Ink, Washi Tape, and flower die.

This card uses all Amuse products (Shirley is a demo if you need any product...).  We die cut the shape, put patterned paper behind it, a wee strip of Washi tape (also Amuse), and a button finished it off. Can you say easy-peasy?  Woweee!!!
 
This next card was fun, too.  The last issue of CardMaker, had a card by Michelle Woerner on the front cover.  She used all sorts of Washi tape on her card.  I didn't have any, so I used some randomly cut strips from a pad of patterned papers that I got free in a copy of an Australian magazine, Cardmaking and Papercraft.  Added a quick sentiment and a bit of bling!  As I didn't want to have to take a chance on a crooked sentiment, I stamped first, and adhered paper strips second.

Cardstock, Kate Knight "Totally Tropical" Summer Papers, Want2Scrap, Repeat Impressions "Thinking of You"


Ta da!  Two very quick cards!  I doubt that either card took more than 15 minutes to create. I've always been a bit afraid of CAS cards, but it's a style that is SO growing on me!

Hope your week is going well, and that your weekend holds some fun!  DH has three days off, and we are so excited!  That doesn't happen too often, and we are looking forward to some time together.

Thanks for stopping by - I'm off to see what you've been up to!

Hugs,
Patti J.

Terrific cards, Patti! I love the color and the little open space with the button on the first card and the festive look of the second. Best of all, if they're easy.....I just may have to CASE!

Great cards! Love the simplicity of the flower card with just the one color and white! And what a great way to use small strips as you showed in the 2nd card! TFS!

Sweet card Patti. Especially love the first one with the flower "window".

Both of these cards are really pretty. The recipients will think it took you much longer than 15 minutes!

I have cased both of these cards too. I really like the strips of paper layout because it uses up all those little scraps we all have so many of. I love how bright yours turned out!

Hi Patti, Thanks for calling by my friend, I have been so lapse in my blogging of late :( I seem as though we are never in and when we are I am tired out....lol
Had a peek back at your latest creations and they are beautiful as always :)
I love these two...the Turquoise one of course is my favourite as its MY colour, but both are super. xxx
Hope you enjoy some Hubby time and the weather is kind whatever you do.

Patti, both cards are gorgeous! Love the monochromatic-ness of the first card and the bright colors of the second. I can't wait to see you make more cards as you play around with CAS cards! :)Have a good time together!

Really like both cards and so easy peasy to make. Always need easy cards when ideas don't flow.
Hope to see you & Shirley the end of the month.

Well of course I love them - "duh" - the second card is amazing and very creative - I am sure both cards will be very much appreciated. I love doing the negative image technique - especially with "AMuse" dies!!!
