Shifting into Neutral

I am drawn to neutral cards and projects  – Shimmery White on Whisper White and Very Vanilla on Crumb Cake just make me happy.  Today Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake called my name –  a contrast to the crisp blue skies and the vivid reds, yellows and oranges on this beautiful Fall day.

This layout is one of my favorites and every time I make a card using it I wonder why I don't do it more often. My base card is Crumb Cake. I started by stamping the splotch and the splatter from Gorgeous Grunge in Crumb Cake on my Very Vanilla layer.  I layered the neutral stripe washi tape from the Warmth and Cheer Designer Washi Tape in the 2016 Holiday Catalog, a strip of Crumb Cake Card Stock that I die cut with the stars from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, added some loops of Linen Thread.  

On scraps of Very Vanilla I stamped the badge from Badges & Banners in Crumb Cake, and the "A Little hello" banner in Early Espresso.  I used the Best Badge Punch and the Duet Banner Punch to quickly "cut" those images which are mounted with Dimensionals. The Badges & Banners and Best Badge Punch can be purchased as a bundle to save 10%!

I finished it off by scattering the stars left over from the strip, some some clear sequins from the Metallic Sequin Assortment, and a single tiny rhinestone.  Now I'm doing my happy dance 'cause I love this card, even if I do say so myself!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!  I hope I've inspired you to get out your supplies and stamp!  If you need more supplies I'd be tickled if you shop from my online store – I'd love to be your demonstrator.  If you order from me be sure to use my October Host Code 7ZKGME4F for orders $149.00 or less.
