All these cards are quick and easy so you can reproduce them without worrying too much about techniques or supplies. So first up, I inked up these circle stamps from Papertrey Ink for the first time. I opted for a custom background on this one:
And then I tried just a strip. Both of these are SUPER simple, and great for boy cards. I think it would look great in a more pastel color scheme as well.
And, here's a secret: I don't know any boys turning 12. I was just in a groove so I went with it. =)
More Peachy Keen?! I know, I know. I'm telling you- it's an addiction. My love for Peachy Keen will never leave me. I started with the bicycle stamped background and flipped through the Remarks stickers until I found a few stickers I thought went well together. Added the strips, the flower and some ribbon and voila! Super easy.
I like that bicycle so much I stamped another background. I knew I wanted to use that bicycle sticker too, but wasn't sure just where to put it. I actually was "auditioning" it when it stuck down before I was ready- so I had to build the rest of the card around it where it was. I peeled up the wheels to add the strip, then added the 'hi'. The clouds and twine came later- it was too out of balance without it.
I have been browsing various websites to see if any of my recent pages fit any pub calls and I came across the Papercrafts blog where they have color combo challenges. I had some time, so I decided to play along with this one:
And here's what I came up with:
As soon as I saw those colors I instantly thought sherbet! I hand cut the dish and the ice cream scoops after roughly sketching them out first. Makes you wish summer wasn't coming to an end soon, right?
Last, I made this page in order to get out of my comfort zone a little and try a shabby/vintage/distressed page. I'm not smitten with it but I liked the process so I may try it again. And, actually I just realized that my biggest bowtie flower is missing from the page... hmmm... must have fallen off en-route to be photographed. Bummer.
