Hi stamping, coloring, die cutting, creative friends! Pictures are ready, page open to start blogging and it dawns on me, I should be posting something for Mother’s Day! lol Hmmmm…maybe tomorrow! hehe
Today I have 5 cards I made using two poppystamps sets, Mail Delivery stamps and dies and Easter Excitement stamps and dies. I could’ve easy made 5 more! How fun is that and what a variety of cuteness!
I stamp, die cut and then color. The backgrounds are Distress inks applied with the mini ink blending tool.
White pen accents added with a white pen that SLS just started carrying, thanks to the heads up from Linda! Thank you Linda!
I used the MISTI to stamp the sentiments. Distress ins on this one are Hickory Smoke for the sidewalk and Salty Ocean for the sky.
Since it’s time to plant…what a perfect card for that gardening friend!
Here I used the Memory Box Shaker Square Frames die set and for the background layer a square from the Memory Box Stitched Square Layers die set. Salty Ocean and Gathered Twigs are the Distress Ink blended background colors.
I cut a slit in the bottom to fit the carrot into the ‘dirt’. The butterfly antennae is drawn on with a black pen.
oh yes! I love this one…it’s all about the mail! lol A couple washi tapes a long the bottom. The airmail is from Little B and the special delivery is from October Afternoon.
I added a few embossed lines with the Scor-buddy to simulate house siding. fun!
Always fun to find a tree in a set to color! The same frame and stitched dies that I used above, just a larger stitched square for the background. I used Salty Ocean (pounced it off on scrap paper more) and Mowed Lawn for the ink blending on this one.
and last a little more Washi tape to embellish this cute CAS card… Doodlebug cloud Washi and Little B Green Herringbone Washi… I just love it for grass.
Whew – long post! Happy cards and I hope they inspired you to make a card!
Thanks so much for clicking over and happy weekend to you!
