Stamp Simply Blog Hop: Go-to Layouts

Welcome to this Saturday's Stamp Simply Blog Hop featuring our "Go-To Layouts." My design is also uploaded at today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers, seen here.

This is a layout and simple style that you have seen here numerous times...a longer length card with a rectangular panel...often done in monochromatic colors and singular sheets of decorator paper.

This is a super simple sketch, yet allows me to add elements--many, or few--(usually FEW!)--all chosen to let the image shine through!

My design today features a Crafty Secrets "Summer" Cotton Scrap image panel (#7 Summer at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store).

I just love the red striped towel on this oh so cool bear!

The decorator paper used here is from October Afternoon's 8 X 8" "Thrift Shop" pad.

A simple addition of turquoise May Art's twill knotted across the design adds the final touch.

Simple, simple, SIMPLE!
ALL of the supplies used in this design are available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!

Sherry is waiting for you
with a fantastic design! If you've come here blog surfing, be certain to check out the gals at the top of the list as well!

LOL--Great card, Deb!

I laughed when I saw the red and white towel around his waist...and his friends in the water!

Is the area that you colored the scene also on fabric? It looks like a type of twill or something.

I love the background and the matching monochromatic twill ribbon around the card! Perfect!
