Basic Grey Oliver's Versatility...

So I sat down last night to make a few cards and decided to use up some of what I had left in the Basic Grey Oliver kit after having already made four 12" x 12" layouts.  I came up with a few cards, all for different occasions, just to show you how versatile this kit truly is.  For each of the cards I used a white card base that I had on hand.

The first card is for Christmas...I know, scary to think of how close it really is but we must face reality, it's just around the corner.  For this card I kept it fairly simple, using card stock, one patterned paper, ribbon, a Basic Grey stamp set, white stamp ink, my Sakura Gelly Roll pen in Clear Star, and a black fine tip pen.  It's hard to tell on-line but each snowflake was stamped in white ink then traced with the Clear Star pen which gives a beautiful sparkle and makes the snowflakes come alive. 

This next card is a love card...perfect for Valentine's Day or just to let that special someone know how much you care.  Here I used some of the doillie paper, a couple of the patterned papers, and a Basic Grey stamp set.  Again a fairly simple card but so pretty.  The sentiment reads "loving you more each day..."

The last card is a birthday card.  I wanted this card to work for a boy's birthday since one of my son's has a party to go to tomorrow.  Again, I used some of the card stock, a couple sheets of patterned paper, a few of the brads from the kit, another Basic Grey stamp set, colored pencils, and a black fine tip pen. 

They are all fairly simple cards but it really shows how much you can do with one of the Queen Scraps kits...they are loaded with product and perfect for celebrating or documenting almost any occasion.
