Monday Quick Cards

Happy Monday and welcome to another addition of Monday Quick Cards!

Today I'm tickled pink to share this card with you, using Unity Stamp Co's Let's Flamingle. It's such a cute set and takes no time at all to color in. I began with a base using Unity's Hearts Of Old. I love this background stamp. Hearts, yet distressed. I'm a big fan of distress.  I stamped the background stamp with Picked Raspberry distress ink, misted with some water, and stamped onto my watercolor paper. I stamped the flamingo out on a separate piece, colored, then cut out the bird and the hearts, popping them up on the background and added washi tape. I stamped and cut out the sentiment, popping that up as well. I matted onto black, then bright pink. I love how fun and cheery it turned out and hope to make more soon.

See how fast you can make a similar card, it took me 13:26.

Monday Quick Cards

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was crazy busy, as have the last several, but today is Monday and I have a new quick card to share with you that took me 16:25.

This week's card focuses on the sentiments and I mean like all of them. This new sentiment set, from is so fun. I just love the massive amounts of cute, nice, and down right funny sayings that are contained in it. How can you pick just one? So....I used most of them, creating a background, then highlighting the largest greeting on a banner.

First, I laid out sentiments, spacing them so that the various lines were offset and not like the one above, on my stamp platform. Inked it up and stamped on to my background paper, then cut with a stitched die. I stamped out the Happy Birthday on to another piece of paper and cut into a banner. Some distress ink on the edges helped it pop out from the sentiment background. I just added one puffy treat and a few enamel drops, before matting on to a bright piece of paper, to match the distressed edges. Fun, simple, would make a great mass produced set, since you have all those sentiments lined up on the platform.

Monday Quick Cards

Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day! Taking a rest from out labors is the perfect time to showcase quick cards that don't require a lot of labor; 11:50 to be exact.

It's amazing what just a swipe of color on a stencil and some cute die cut frames can do for a card. I used Unity Stamp Co's Bundle Congrats. It's super cute and doesn't need a lot of fussing with. I simply painted the cloud and hearts, die cut into a fun shape, and added to my simple background. I added some Nuvo Drops to the hearts and to two of the corners. Matting onto a solid piece of cardstock was all that was left.

I hope all of you have a fantastic holiday and keep it simple and quick!
