Thank You card

I wanted to make a little Thank You card for someone and decided to use the cute little bird from Fun and Fast Notes.  The sentiment on the stamp wasn’t quite right for the reason I was sending it, so I just wiped off the ink from the last part before I printed onto the card stock.  I think it worked very well!

I’ve also been using the Basic Grey Stampin’ Pad™ a lot recently, rather than black.  I quite like the softer look it has for stamped images.

Birthday Cake Card

I really love the size of Love Notes.  They’re so dinky and work so well with the Fun and Fast Notes stamp set. 

This little birthday cake stamp is so cute and I just had to use pink to colour it using Stampin’ Pastels™.  The thing I love most about Stampin’ Pastels™ is that you get the WHOLE range of Stampin’ Up! colours in one set.  What amazing value for money!

Card for a Teenage Boy

I’ve always found making cards for teenage boys so hard!  Today I used the star from Fun and Fast Notes, and cut off the ‘congratulations’ sentiment.  I used Stampin’ Pastels to colour it.

I made a couple of other cards using Fun and Fast Notes as well, which I’ll share over the next few days.  It’s such a wonderful set for doing really quick cards.  I managed 3 today in about half hour, and that included getting everything out and tidying up afterwards!star-card

Quick card

I needed to make a very quick card to accept an invitation to a child’s party.  What better than the little birdie from Best Wishes and More!  I used the Poppin’ Pastels technique for this.  I stamped with a VersaMark pad and then used cotton wool to dab on colours from Stampin’ Pastels.  acceptance-card
