Basic Guidelines One


What a gloomy weekend we had. It rained just about the entire time. Although I did make a few cards, I pretty much lounged around the entire weekend. But, we all need that from time to time. Today's card is for the Loonie Stamper's Challenge. The colors were a bit of a challenge for me because of the raspberry fizz and the melon berry. I just didn't think they meshed well together. So, why on earth I put them so close...who knows!

Anyway, I used Papertrey Ink's Guidelines One (because they just came out with Guidelines Two for this month's release). I kept the card really simple, making it useful for any occasion. I added pink rhinestones for some dimension and bling. Although the stamping takes a little while, it is a very simple and fast card to make.

And last, but not least, I started Tweeting on Friday, so you can now follow me on Twitter. See my tweets on the left side of my blog! Join me too!

I love your blog! I do have a question regarding "guidelines". Do you have problems lining up the grid? I've tried stamping like a 1/2 sheet of cardstock to use as a patterned paper base. I don't have the grid block because it is always out of stock at PTI. Any help you could give, would be greatly appreciated:) Thanks!
