As a card maker, I get a lot of my inspiration for my projects from things around me. It could be colors, textures, wallpaper, food….I love it when something stops me in my tracks and I have to quickly write down an idea from it. For today’s project, I was inspired by these vintage-style post cards I’ve had in my drawer for ages. I don’t use them, I just like to look at them, LOL! They have always reminded me of something a grandmother would have. Very comforting and happy.
For some reason, with all the card making I do, I can never seem to have enough baby cards on hand. Or I have some for just a girl or just a boy. Today’s project, will help bulk up your baby card collection with an easy design and a few quick swipes of the die cutting machine.
I love decorating my own blank notecards and envelopes. You never know when you need just a quick little note to drop in the mail, so I like to have a lot on hand.
Layering stamps are so much fun to work with, especially with different techniques. For today’s project, I’m using my favorite heat embossing technique with the Color Layering Birthday Cake stamp set from Hero Arts. Keeping the project clean and simple highlights these cute stamps even more!
I love big, bold stamped flowers, but what do you do when the flowers are supposed to be white? How do you add some texture or interest so it doesn’t just lay flat on the card? Adding detail with a Versamark pen can make all the difference.
When you are sick, there’s nothing better than having someone take all the worries off your plate for a while. I love the sentiment on my project today, because it’s telling a friend you’ll take care of things. Plus, there’s a pun involved which can always bring a smile.
