Same Supplies, different cards

Happy Monday!  In my neck of the woods, we had beautiful weather over the weekend, which was refreshing and much needed.  I am ready to start seeing flowers bloom, barbeque-ing outside, and taking bike rides with my children.  Spring is coming and I am very excited about that!
Today, I am showing you two cards, using the same stamps & paper, but one is a little more simple than the other.  Not all stampers and paper crafters have all of the latest and greatest tools, especially people new to this hobby.  I remember the frustration seeing a beautiful card, but not able to create it, from lack of supplies.  Question?  Why do we make cards?  To send them right?!  I love making fancy cards, but the ones I mail out, usually are pretty simple.  The only difference in supplies in the two cards, is that I added ribbon to the first one.

Supplies used:
Feb Kit of the month
Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper
Ivory card stock
Copic markers
satin ribbon
black pearls
Spellbinders labels die
foam tape

Love them both.. and u are right.. I tend to make my cards more flat these days... easier to mail out to friends/family.. the bumpy cards are harder to mail.. more $!!

This is a great post.. just shows ya how u can make a beautiful card with just some paper, some great stamps and colored markers.. way to go!

Love them both! "Sometimes simple is better" is what my daughter is always telling me in regards to my cards.To many details and the cards don't get mailed out in time!lol.Thank you for the inspiration and the reaffirmation that sometimes simple is pretty awesome too!

What a great post! I love seeing two different looks with the same stamp set! Thanks for being aware that we don't all have the latest and greatest, but that we can do a lot with just the basics. Have a great day1

I was so happy to see this.. sometimes I get so frustrated because I can't make my cards look like some I see and don't have unlimited supplies and budget! They are both beautiful and I love the comparison!
