Eye Love You! (TCPTUESMay13)

Hiya crafty "peeps!" Ok, cheesy, I know.... Hope all my American readers had a fab holiday weekend!  We did, and the weather in CO was downright glorious this weekend! Wanted to share with you another card I'd made for this month's TCP Tuesday Challenge! And here's a word from Miss Meowy about the challenge:

***This month's challenge is a KISS challenge! This challenge is all about Clean and Simple cards. 

Some people are good at it. Some people are not. I know I tend to just keep piling on the embellishments and paper layers.

This challenge is about really looking at your stamps and making them the focal point. 

It can be a classic, elegant card, or a fun and whimsical one. 

Design a card using TCP stamps and/or CutUps dies with clean lines, minimal elements, areas of white space and few or no embellishments. 

Here's my card! I used the new Glasses CutUp  as my focal point on a white on white card. I used strips of washi and half a sticker to create the cluster in the upper LH corner of the card. 

The sentiment was made with the Coolvetica Alpha (I literally could *not* live without that alphabet set! It's the best!) and the heart and some words from Admit One. I also used the Big Scallop CutUp on some red dotted DP (no card is complete without DP, I think!) ;) and the white layer along the bottom. 
A strip of ribbon and some red rhinestones are the embellies I used on this card. I gotta say, CAS cards are not normally my gig, but "eye" really LOVE this card! Probably the most fave CAS card I've ever made. These glasses are the best! Hope you have your new goodies from TCP and you can show off how Swanky you are! You can link your cards up on the sidebar of Alma's blog until the end of May! 

big hugs, Noelle
