My two favorites:

Visual Triangles: place elements in a triangle shape. It creates movement and balance in a design

Rule of Thirds: Imagine your design space as a 3x3 grid. Place elements for emphasis at the intersections of the grid, divide the background into one-third/two-third sections. Not sure why it works, but it's a rule in photography that seems to work every time!

HTH!

For making cards, I always tell my beginiing stampers that each card uses a main image, a layer beneath that and a background. The beginners seem to like this because it makes a complete card and it a simple way of learning the basics. I have found that cards using this approach come out looking nice, but were really easy to make.

One third, two thirds rule, if you are going to divide your background have 1/3 in one patter and 2/3 in the other. It often looks nice to cover the seam with ribbon or a contrasting strip of cardstock.

When I started making cards, my demo told me, "Always have three things to look at on the front of the card!"

She meant: an image, a background, and an embellishment. It works! My cards now never look like they are 'missing' something.

I guess I never approach my creations that technically!LOL! Maybe I should take some lessons.

I work with coordiantiong colors-make sure all the elements are balanced, and my work looks finished and purposeful.

Less is sometimes more.

Odd numbers are key to design.

I don't claim to be an expert, but it is often good to use color more than once in a design.

This is a great thread. I knew about the rule of 3rds but don't always think of it when I'm creating. I really could use some design knowledge. I'm clueless.

Odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye, so if you are going to use something like a basket of flowers you should put in an odd number. If you are going to use a repeated image, go for an odd number!

As stated before, I use the rule of thirds.

I use no more than four colors on a project.....otherwise it gets to busy.

I usually use a metal embellishment, a piece/pieces of ribbon/twine, and stiching/piercing.

I always us at least three layers, card base, coordinating color/s, and main image.

I don't like to stamp on my card base as it seems to clutter it up.

These are some of the basic stuff I think of when I start a card. HTH!

I forgot to mention that I also try and balance my colors.....

I use half as much of my second color as my main color, and half as much of my third color as my second color, half as much of my fourth color as my third color, ect.

I've heard of the gallon, quart, pint rule to colour use, and try to apply it to my cards and layouts. When you use colours in those proportions, they work together rather than competing, and the result is more pleasing to the eye.

Oh dear - you have just hit on an Ellen hot button I LOVE to bring my interior design training into my card making. I do believe this may be the perfect topic for my blog this coming week I'm off to share - at least a little, because I can teach this stuff for hours - LOL. As an interior designer I had the amazing fortune to teach throngs of consumers some of these key little basics. I'm like a kid in a candy store when it comes to this whole thought process. LOL. Off to write some of the basics

Oh dear - so much for clicking the go advanced button. I guess I need a cup of joe first - LOL!

I just wanted to quickly let you know that I have started writing on my blog - simple dreams. It will be so much easier for me to keep track of what I've covered and keep it all in one place by putting it there. So for anyone who would like to stop on by just click on the green link below and hopefully you might discover something you haven't heard before. It is going to take me quite a while to do all of this and so I can't promise that I will get to it every day, but I will do my best.

A teacher is only as good as the examples they put forth and so I can't just mutter on about things without sharing examples Unfortunately it takes time to write it all and make the examples. Perhaps I just need to put it all in a book - LOL!

I hope you enjoy the insites that my interior design training will bring to your creations. My belief is that we all are artists - we all have creativity within us! If we learn the basics behind what makes good design then we will have the courage to venture forth and create with confidence

As a for design from college. The two I follow the most :
1. The eye of the viewer naturally moves to the top right of the page then to the bottom left.
2. Avoid putting a focal point on the left hand side of the pge that leads off the edge of the page. That causes the viewer to believe she should turn up the left hand side of the card (as opposed to the right).

Oh, and another one:
3. Use a variety of image sizes. For example, a large main image, a medium-print design on a printed paper and a small detail image stamped on the background.

This is a very interesting thread. Keep the thoughts coming!

Okay, I can't find the edit button, and baby only allowed me five hours of sleep. So, what I meant to write was:
I used to design newspapers. So I try to follow the same principles of page design I learned in college...

That's better (I think)...

Default carry the design inside your card

I am new to SCS, but love this thread.
I have stamped for 15 years. Am still totally hooked

I try to take a little piece of whatever I cut off my card front design and
put it on the inside of my card and even on the envelope if I have enough left over.

This can be a long slender piece of card stock from a layering,
a piece of my stamped background that I had to cut to size it for the
card front.

I may even put a tiny piece on the back of the card and put my initials and
the date above it.

This ties your whole composition together. It can even be stamping.
If you have a stamp set of let's way flowers. You use the big flowers in your design on the front of the card and then stamp a smaller matching version
on the inside of the card.

Hope this makes sense.
Shelly

This is great!!! Thanks Laura L
•Balance- The "weight" of the design elements should balance. In other words, attempt to put equal amounts of material on the left and right sides of your card, as well as the top and bottom. This doesn't mean making every side of the card match exactly. Example of unbalanced card-a single brad on the bottom is outweighed by three images and a greeting on the top.

Definitely! This is called "Repetition", and it is very important to repeat elements, colors or patterns on a layout - especially in scrapbooking, too!
"Balance" is a good one, too. If you use a dark color on the left side of your card, for example, then the right side should have something to visually balance it, such as a pattern or image.

I have been thinking about this... I don't have the design training that I wish I had... but the thing that I try to do is make sure there is Depth in my projects. I think that's why I love DTP and sponging so much...it adds that depth!

Yeah, awesome tips... too late for me to get that into detail tho'...

I agree with the ODDS thing...

I usually add 3-5 embellishments... sort of in a visual triangle... like 3 buttons or 3-5 mini brads...

Good for you for looking to improve your designs!

Default And 3 shall be the number thou shalt count...

Has anyone noticed how the number 3 keeps popping up?

-3 colors
-Triangles
-Rule of Thirds
-Groups of 3 embellishments
-3 things (from SDiego Gal): Image, background, and embellishment
-Balance, Repitition, Depth

Just a little summary of what's here (my version anyway) and I think I will add it to my bulletin board in the stamp room.
