Lindsay from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff has designed some wonderful new digital card kits. When she told us about the kits she asked that we use one to make a 15 minute card. I totally panicked, you see I am a SLOOOOOOW crafter. Sometimes it takes me a week to finish a card. I have to try everything in every different way before I actually put glue to paper, sometimes I really annoy myself. However, when I saw her kits I was completely relieved. They are so easy to put together and so beautifully coordinated that it was a snap even for me.
In fact, it was so simple that I did a 5, 10 and 15 minute card with the Elegant Black and White Kit . I went from a simple elegant card to a more elaborate one all within the time limit. Keep in mind that the time limit didn't include cutting stuff out which I did while watching the Pens mutilate Carolina (sorry if your a Hurricanes fan... really, I mean that... he he).
The first card took only about 5 minutes to put together using just a few of the basic pieces from the kit (you get enough pieces for three cards on one sheet) a black cardstock base, and some ribbon.
The second one took about 10 minutes. I embossed the card base with a swiss dot embossing folder, added a white and black layer and a flower.
The last card is the most elaborate and actually took ME over 45 minute to make but that was because I spent 30 minutes looking for black satin ribbon that I finally realized my daughter had used for a school project. In reality it probably would have taken a little over 15 min. to put together with the extra pink layers, flowers and ribbon.
I also added an insert inside the card with a different layer from the kit and digital stamp from Lindsay's collection.
If you visit Lindsay's Blog she is giving away a free download of one of her new card kits and a coordinating Digi stamp to try out. Also, don't forget that if you buy 5$ worth of stamps you get one free until May 31.
