Simply Saturday with Basic Grey

I’m trying to get back on schedule with some of my blog posts. It is amazing how busy it has been lately! Since it is Saturday this design is a simple one. No stamping at all actually! When designing simple cards, sometimes rub-on transfers are the way to go.

Now I love stamping and I’ll never leave it but sometimes I like to take a quick change of pace and have a little fun with rub-ons. Basic Grey makes fabulous rub-ons in beautiful designs and they go on beautifully. It is a very crisp clean look.

This card was actually designed for a Craft Critique review on the Basic Grey Rub-on Tranfers. If you’re interested in learning more about rub-ons…have fun checking it out. Rub-ons can be applied to a myriad of surfaces. I love these white rub-ons as they have a great matt opaque look that can be difficult to achieve in other mediums.

jks-paisley-close-up-2.jpgTo create this design, I simply applied my rub-ons to my Basic Grey patterned paper and then matted the layer and adhere to my card base. To highlight my sentiment and embellish the design, I attached a Hodgepodge Hardware label frame over it and then tied a scrap of May Arts ribbon to the frame.

Basic Grey Rub-ons, Patterned Paper and May Arts ribbon were purchased from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.

Quick Tip: Embellish your rub-ons for a more personal, glitzy look. To highlight flowers in the paisley rub-on transfer…I added rhinestone stickers for a beautiful look.

Hoping your Saturday is simply wonderful!
