While surfing through the Operation Write Home blog hop I found this hop that is perfect for the cards that I make, the Less is Moore and they are having a “Less is More” challenge, featuring pastels, which are also my favorite–especially at this time of the year. So give them a look, they have lots of great cards in their contest.
Here is the card I am submitting. The flowers are from My Time Made Easy I love their stamps. I used the sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Delightful Dalia stamp set and the paper and ink is from Stampin Up. The bow is from Michael’s.
Pretty in Pink Mother's Day
Here is a really cute winter card–it captures the mood of most of the country, as we are buried in snow day after day. I’m one of the lucky ones who likes snow, so it’s okay with me.
This card uses Papertrey Ink’s Snowfall stamp for the snowflakes, Spring Rain (Papertrey Ink) cardstock, and the matching polka dot ribbon. Papertrey Ink’s ribbon is so nice to work with–love it! I got the sentiment from a pillow, so I typed it into Word and printed it out. No stamp has that saying that I know of.
Blue Snowflake Blizzard
This is a really quick card to make using PaperTrey Ink lemon tart polka dot paper, matching card stock and ink. The design is from My Time Made Easy. I used the SU 5-petal punch to cut out the flower, and then used pop dots to place it on the card. I’ll probably make a few more of these in differnt colors.
Yellow Love You Card
This card was fun to make, after I figured out how to space the flowers somewhat evenly.
Apricot Flower Happy Birthday
This was a really simple card to make for a graduation. I used the school colors to make it personal. The paper is from PaperTrey Ink and the sentiment is from Well Scripted from Stampin Up! The flourishes are from My Time Made Easy. The ribbon is grosgrain from Michael’s.
For some reason, this has been the weekend for purple and green. So here’s another one with that same color scheme.
Purple and Green Thinking of You
I used the grass from the Honey Bees stamp set from Papertrey Ink and the flowers were all created using the Blossom punch from SU! and the One of a Kind stamp set. It makes punching out these flowers so easy. I used Lavender Lace, So Saffron and Pale Plum ink to stamp the flowers. I also used Old Olive ink and cardstock, and a ribbon from Michaels.
Later this week, I am going to post some other cards I made using the same stamps, but they look completely different using other color combinations. It’s such an easy card to make, but it turns out so gorgeous.
Here is one of my favorite cards to make. It’s quick and easy with the SU! stamp A Little Bit of Happiness.
