Black & White with a Pop of Color

I love black and white cards. I love them even more with a "pop of color". The True Love Designer Series Paper lends itself to these types of cards so easily. Use the True Love DSP as is but add color with bits of card stock, ribbon, and/or embellishments. I used Just Jade for my pops of color on the following 6 cards. These are so easy to make as they all use the same dimensions - making it easy to make lots of great cards fast to use now or build up your stash for later use. 

Oval Occasions Bundle & True Love Designer Series Paper

I love layering punched shapes to add more interest to cards and make my sentiments stand out.

Matte Black Dots are a perfect embellishment for these black & white cards with a pops of Just Jade color.

Color Coach Card PDF's

As requested I am posting PDF's for the Color Coach Cards you may have seen me use from time to time in my business, including in my Facebook Lives. Once downloaded, you can print the sheets, then cut the cards apart. I like to have mine mounted on the same color card stock. Color Coach cards measure about 3" x 4" when cut apart. Cut your card stock 3 1/4' x 4 1/4". You can punch a hole in each of the cards and put them on a 2" ring which makes the cards very easy to use.

Fresh Fruit For All

I have loved creating with the amazing You're A Peach Suite. It is so fresh and fun. BUT, there is so much more to the Sweet As A Peach Bundle if you allow yourself to see it a new light. Think outside the box. Let your imagination take shape Can you envision creating other fruits with this bundle? Well, in my video below, I demonstrate how I used the Sweet As A Peach Bundle to make blueberries, cherries, plum, and apples. I bet you, like the viewers of this Facebook Live, can think of many more fruits you can make with this stamp set and dies bundle. The versatility of the Sweet As A Peach Bundle has opened me up to so many more ways to use it. 

Take a look at my video demonstration, then make a "fruit salad" of cards give or send. You'll be spreading love and summer fun!
