Two Cards

....And the award for most creative post title of all time goes to.....

...drumroll, please.........


JUST JINGLE for her "Two Cards" post.

K. So that probably won't be happening. I get it. But it's just all I've got today, folks, it really is. It's raining. Again. *sigh* That's all I have to say about that.

BUT...while the title of the post may not be terribly creative, it is accurate! HA! I have two cards to share with you today! Let's start with this Mother's Day card created with the Konnichiwa collection from Basic Grey and some super fun brads from The Eyelet Outlet!

Happy Mother's Day


I love hanging the sentiment from the hanger like that! TOO MUCH FUN. Just say'n. I also cut a sticker from the collection in half and added the two sides with foam tape for a bit of dimension. That is a fun way to add some depth to an already fabulous patterned paper.

AND...for my second card for today...a card with no sentiment. WHAT? Yup. No sentiment. Well, actually, I lied. There is no sentiment on the FRONT of the card. I did stamp on on the inside, but I forgot to photograph that part. Ooopsies!

Floral Note


Those gorgeous stamps? Yup. Those are totally Gourmet Rubber Stamps. They are from the absolutely GORGEOUS Spring Botanical set! I created a mask of the flower shape to leave the perfect sized/shaped spot to stamp the image with the text in the background. Super simple, but HUGE impact! A bit of soft, May Arts gingham ribbon was the perfect way to finish it off!

Floral Note


And there you have it! Two Cards. Just like I promised! HA! I hope you have a super happy Thursday! Go get inky or something!!!

Jingle Out.

  4. Hi
    In my part of the world (Scotland) it is a dark day and very wet so your first card brings warmth right into my home.
    Then the second - extremely elegant.
    TSF.

  21. Hey, "two cards" is better than one. Sometimes it's just hard to come up with yet another title ;)
    Love the Konnichiwa card (I'm hoarding it, must stop!) - and that hanger! Adorbs.
    Love the gingham ribbon on the botanical card - and that flower! Such a deceptively simple card, with so much impact. Love it!
