Kelly Rasmussen Wows With BasicGrey!

Good day to you!  
Today we have some lovely cards by Kelly Rasmussen, featuring BasicGrey.  Kelly has a fun, fresh style and a really great eye for just the right layout! 

Just look at this beautiful card Kelly made using BasicGrey's Soleil.  I like how she layered with the wheels and petals.  The arrow stamps are from the Paradise set and the letters alphabet stickers can be found in here!




I love the teal with the yellow on this card!  Also, I think it's a cool idea to tie twine around the flag piece!  Those gems are a neat touch too!  Kelly made this card with Sew Perfect and Delicate Flower stamps from the Lucille Collection by BasicGrey.




The vintage buttons on this card make a cool border and coordinate perfectly with the pretty Lucille papers!  I like how Kelly rounded the corners on the card and mirrors it on the floral paper.  The half circle peaking from behind the floral paper mirrors the buttons. I love this technique!  Plus she mixed and matched all three clear Lucille stamp sets: Be Silly, Fancy Schmancy, and Sew Perfect.  This is such a put-together layout!!




Serenade is one of those collections that I can't get enough of.  The papers are slightly distressed which lends to the classic, romantic feel of the collection.  On this card, Kelly used Serenade Layered Stickers & alphabet stickers to top the cardstock that she enhanced with butterfly and flower stamps from the Pocket Watch set.






We'd like to say a BIG thank you to Kelly Rasmussen for letting us showcase these fabulous cards!  Make sure to stop by her blog for more inspiration!  : )  Maybe she'll have some inspiration from the new True Love Collection, which is available now at Simon Says Stamp!
