Back To The Basics Tuesday!!!

I really kind of miss how much fun card making was before I was trying to be the best (I am so not the best) but I think you know what I mean!!!!! When you go through through the galleries wishing you had this die or that DP all the newest coolest paper crafting products that really hit the pocket book!!!

Then I realized that was were my mojo was hiding!!!! I had now want to use what i had because it wasn't what the Jones were using. till now!!!!

I love the simplest of cards and so I have decided to make the most basic of cards using the most basic of products!!!

a year or so ago I made a card for a DP challenge on SCS and it is still one of my more popular cards being faved over 130 times and cased many times and for that I am flattered!!! The card uses only two tiny stamps and tiny scraps of paper! but the simplicity if the card is what i was drawn to. So i really hope you like the star card reborn!!! thanks for looking and if you have any simple ideas you would like the share please leave a comment!!


*supplies*

80lbs white card stock, scraps of DP, SU star punches, PTI buttons & twine, and a tiny craft tag cut on the cricut!


*what you could uses in stead*

110lbs stamper select CS from PTI, die cut images or cutouts, brads eyelets or dew drops,
you can make a tag out of and scrap of paper cut by hand and added to your card like journaling strips!
I really hope that you like this post cause it has really helped me want to stamp again TFL Sarah :o)

Love It! Too often we get caught up in the 500 ingredients needed to make the most time consuming cards... distill the intent to the essence. Simplicity can be as beutiful and sincere, and quite a Savings :-) Thanks for the beautiful reminder!!
Happy Crafting!
