sending sunshine

It’s hard to believe that some areas of the US are still getting snow – so glad I live in Florida!!  So – I decided to send some warmth up north via this card.

It was inspired by Theresa Mombers design shown here.  I used an image from Viva Las Vegas stamps along with Memento’s Dandelion and Cantelope ink for the sun.

clean and simple monday

A quick and easy card to start the week off.  It is now officially fall, but the weather down here is still like summer!  All the craft stores have their halloween/thanksgiving/christmas product on the shelves and many of my crafty friends are splitting their time between the three holidays.

The card was made using the wheat branch from Papertrey and sentiment from Flourishes.  The white cardstock in Neenah, the red from SU and the patterned piece from Papertrey.  Memento Inks were used to stamp the images.

no fuss

No fuss, no muss – just a quick and easy card for today!

The paper is from Basic Grey’s Green at Heart line.  The sentiment and die cut are from Papertrey.  The sentiment was stamped with Memento ink and looks like a better match for the backround paper IRL than in the photo.

Clean and simple Monday – background builders

Hello friends – I hope your week is starting off well.  It’s the fourth of July week and everything seems to be decked out in red, white and blue around here!

I’m playing along with the CAS challenge at SCS – this week we are to use the colors navy, olive and white.  I also decided to let my stamps do extra duty by creating the background on this card – no it’s not designer paper – just stamps and ink!

I love the versatility of this particular set – Medallions Background Basics from PTI.  It contains two long images – I stamped on in blue and the other in green (both Memento inks) to create the pattern.  The colors have a nice masculine feel to them.  The sentiment is also from PTI and was stamped in the same blue ink used in the background – which is another great reason to use stamps to create a background – instant coordination!

Because this card was so easy to pull together, I decided to make another one – this time with much softer colors.  Here is how it turned out.

I used Palette’s Toile Pink ink (because the Memento Pink I had was just too bright) along with Memento New Sprout.  New Sprout is a close match to SU’s Celery color.  I used celery paper and ribbon on this card.  The sentiment was stamped in a slightly darker green – Memento Bamboo leaves so that it would stand out more.

So – a couple of stamps used in a similar manner but by changing the ink colors I ended up two different looks.
