Two Lazy Cards

DSCF6895

Before I start my spiel, I just wanted to ask a little favor.  Some of my readers ask me questions in the comment screen.  While I would love to answer them (I love to talk stampin’!), if a reader is signed in as “anonymous”, there is no way I can answer their question.  You can easily email me if you have a specific question, or sign in using your email address.  I hate to leave people hanging with no answer!!

My sweet friend Robyn lent me her new Two-Step Bird Punch, and I made a very quick (read:LAZY) monochromatic card with the first punch-outs I did.  Sometimes these cards are difficult to photograph, but the effect is very soft & subtle:

This also qualifies for the Limited Supply Challenge #260 at SCS today:  to use ribbon and a trim punch, and for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge to KISS:  Keep It Simple Sweetie.  This card uses  Barely Banana cs, with Vanilla Wide Grosgrain ribbon and the Scallop Trim Punch.  Here’s the inside:

I saw this card on Corie’s blog and thought this would also make a good sympathy card.

 

 

My next lazy card is one I made with some scraps laying on my table; it’s a get-well card for my uncle who has been in the hospital for several days:

I literally threw this together—the only thing I had to do was trim the Chocolate Chip panel and round the edges; then I added the jumbo eyelet just for some interest.  It uses Bordering Blue, Chocolate Chip & Confetti White cs, with some retired DP as well as Thoroughly Modern DP from the current catalog.  The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations.

Well, I gotta run—busy day today!  Thanks for visiting!

These are both absolutely beautiful - simply fantastic.

Both are just awesome, LeAnne! Love that KISS card and the second one is a perfect masculine card!

Love the springy look on the blog. I suppose being buried in snow will make a person long for sunflowers.
I don't think these cards looks lazy at all! I think the get well card is a masculine and clean card. The bird, well that just screams to me that you know exactly how to pull off Clean and Simple.

Love both of these cards, LeAnn! The monochromatic card is beautiful, while I adore the grommet on the second card! Great job! Thanks for playing @ PPA!

Both cards are great, but I especially like the off-white one--very elegant! I'll have to try that, so thanks for the idea!

Susan Raihala said...

These are NOT lazy. The first is simply BEAUTIFUL! The second is simply perfect for a guy in the hospital and will certainly cheer him up!

Hope your uncle is feeling better.

Kristin Bueter said...

These are both stunning, LeAnne! I love the soft, warm look of the first card with the super cute bird, and the masculine, clean look of the second.

Hope your uncle is feeling better soon.
