These past few months, since returning to college, my stamping time has been very limited so I've returned to a very quick and simple style for the most part. I found an old favorite SU set on my shelf, Think Happy Thoughts that's really helped me with fast,easy birthday, friendship and thank you cards. It's one of those "stamp", "punch" and "you're done" sets. As much as I LOVE to color with my Copics, sometimes there's just not time, and for those times, this type of set is perfect. Plus, its can be used for masculine or feminine cards depending on the colors and accessories you chose. Skip the scallop circle and pop a brad or star in the center and you've got a great guy card. I used the new Cottage Wall DP as my color inspiration and used Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence and Old Olive. I just stamped the birthday greeting, punched it out with a 1 1/4" circle punch, layered it with 1 3/8" and scallop circle punch, then punched out a 3/4" center to give the button (from the button bouquet collection) a little contrast. I layered up the cardstock and DP and had these cards completed in no time at all. Here's another variation ~
and for the inside...I used the Heard from the Heart set ~ That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by :) !!
