A Cup of Tea Thanks!

Good morning!  A fun and easy card for you today!  And, it's a great way to use up your scraps of paper!


Just cut four rectangles of your favorite designer paper--you can use any scraps you have!  Don't forget--each piece has two sides, too!!  Adhere them to a piece of coordinating cardstock, then trim that to fit!  Super easy!



Artfully Layered Happy Birthday

oh gosh, will I miss this one!  It is such a pretty set, and the coordinating designer paper--LOVE!  But, alas, we have to say goodbye!  If you haven't purchased this yet, you only have until June 30th!  Don't miss out!

For this card, I used 3 different patterns from the Artfully Composed Designer Paper--the background, the leaf and the strip of Calypso Coral!  The sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen--too coordinate with the leaf!





Happiness Abounds!

I really love this card! Just plain 'ole stamping!  Well, the background panel is embossed, but other than that, just stamping!  No coloring or anything!  But look out bright and fun it is!!


The ribbon is simply tied in a knot and adhered with a mini glue dot!  The trick to this card is to stamp your sentiment first--this helps you with the placement of your other images!

Here are the supplies used on today's card--thank you for shopping small businesses like mine!
