2 simple cards from me


Hey everyone! Here are a couple really fun and simple cards from me.. I needed a couple cards for people who came to the hospital.. so I had to whip up something really quick..This first one is a fun thing to do.. using the folding technique use little scraps you have, and create folded flags. To help keep them down try sewing them. :) Oh I used a sentiment from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler. I also distressed the edges for a little more eye candy!

I used the sketch from Lilly Pad but flipped it a bit.. I also got the inspiration for the tag from the sketch :)
For the second card. I wanted to create a little landscaping scene.. So I used the paper smooches stamps again.. but created a very fun and simple scene. Oh I stamped the circles on the grass using the new alphadots set from paper smooches, then used my Martha Stewart shredding scissors and cut the grass..;) I added some googlie eyes to my little monster to make it more fun. To attach the ground, I decided to sew it down.. The clouds are made using the float stamp, and I used some puffy paint to go around them to make them pop! :) I hope you are enjoying your week.. Oh and a HUGE THANK YOU to Jenny who helped walk me through the lighting issues I was having!! YOU ROCK!! HUGS
