You’re Sublime for FMS192

Jen Mitchell has created a super-simple sketch for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  You can make just about anything with this fun layout -and the variety of beautiful cards by this design team proves that.  I chose to make a cute, clean, simple card that combines two fun sets with Farmers Market Designer Series Paper, a new favorite from the new catalog.  Here’s my card:

You're Sublime, B.Y.O.P, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, FMS192And here’s Jen Mitchell’s fun sketch inspired my simple card:

FMS192Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • You’re Sublime.  What a stinkin’ cute stamp set!?!  A crab, a frog, a submarine, a wheelbarrow and an adorable trailer home – this set has it all.  I love the big, bold images – they are perfect for quick-and-simple cards, all you really need is white card stock and black ink to make a cute set of cards.

  • Snipping Away from the Image.  With Jet Black StazOn, I stamped this trailer on a piece of Sahara Sand and snipped it out.  I allowed myself a lot of white space around this image when I snipped it out.  This additional space allowed me to not finely cut around the hitch or tire.  Yippee!  I do love detailed snipping, but it’s not always called for.  This cute trailer did not call for fine snipping, so I didn’t waste a minute of time fine snipping it.
  • Finding Balance.  It’s important to find balance on a card.  The panels of Farmers Market Designer Series Paper, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla are perfectly centered on the Soft Suede card base.  With the placement of the trailer selected for me (based on Jen’s sketch), I had to do a little squinting to determine the best placement for the sentiment (stamped in Mossy Meadow) so that everything would be balanced (but not centered).  If you missed my Squinting Technique video, please check it out here.
