Spooky 5MQ

Spider web1

5MQ. OK, so I call it a 5MQ (5 minute quick-ee) NOT because I can design it in 5 minutes, but because it can be duplicated in 5–not counting the drying time of the watercolor part.  Savvy?

This card packs a whollop for me… …because I adore simplicity, minimalism, watercolor (albeit kind of cheating to use the Distress Stains in this way, I mean, seriously… could anything BE more effortless than these stripes??? *insert Chandler Bing voice*)…

Spider web2

And, Spidey… swingin’ from the twine?  I know, right?  EEP!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Real Lemons… Not.

Lemons web1

Sometimes, lemons aren’t really lemons, if ya’ know what I mean?

One of the dies in the Thankful Dies set looked like it could be a lemon… So, I figured what the heck, just DO IT! Oh, yes I did!!! *fist pump*  Yes, I did feel quite brilliant when I finished this!  *monkey clapping* So, although I only show one, I actually made a stack of  ’em to have on hand.

Lemons web2

I layered the “Thanks a bunch” 3 deep to create a chipboard like thickness to it–with a heavier weight card stock, like Card Shoppe #100 by Bazzill, you can often get away with only 3 layers. :)

Oh, and, major miracle: I did a video for this and threw it up on YouTube… I should rename my channel, “The totally random video series by Julie”. The end.


Thanks for stopping by! :)


Designer note:  Washi tape is from my personal stash
