Just Add Color: Hello!

I’ve got a new tutorial & kit for you today! It’s called Just Add Color Hello…

Today’s card was designed for Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Design Team O is up this week with another fun challenge board.

I went for the bottom row this week – Black or White, 1 layer, Free. My “free” element is basically “pop of color”. And, though this isn’t strictly a 1-layer card (the DSP is layered on top of the Basic Black cardstock), the DSP is adhered directly to the black and there are no other embellishments or pop-up elements. Sometimes super simple is just right!

What I love about this design, and what you’ll see in the Project Tutorial & Kit is that this one layout works for all of the DSP in the pack – leaving you with lots of design options.

This is technically a Paper Pumpkin alternate idea as I used the stamp set from the Aug 2016 – Bold Botanicals kit. Though any sentiment from “hello” to “welcome” or “welcome to the neighborhood” would work great!

On the CASE: Simple Shapes

Let’s CASE this card…  It’ll be easy!
Yup – that’s what I thought when I was researching designs to CASE this week. I found this lovely design by Jen Rzasa over at Altenew and thought that it would be pretty simple to recreate.
