Easy Card Set

Happy weekend everyone! Today I'm featuring a set of 4 cards I made using Thoughtful Phrases and some images I had stamped and colored a few months ago when I was at Lila's. This set was so easy to make, especially since the coloring was already done.

The flower is the Ruffle flower by Stampendous and is stamped in Ancient Page Coal Black ink and colored with Prismacolors and Gamsol. I then added Stardust Stickles around the ruffles and the flower centers. For the backgrounds I randomly stamped the starburst stamp from the Little Lady PaperTrey set on scraps of Cool Caribbean and Rose Red paper and then used my small Marvy square punch to cut out the squares. I also punched squares in Basic Black and then alternated them in a checkerboard fashion on a white card base.

For the sentiments I stamped each phrase from Thoughtful Phrases on white cardstock and then punched out with the Word Window punch. I then glued to Basic Black and cut around the edges with my Provocraft mini scallop scissors. I really like how the checkerboard turned out. I think the whole set only took me about 20 minutes (of course the coloring was already finished, so I cheated just a bit).

Okay, that's it for today. Hopefully I'll be making a mess in my studio this weekend! I need some stamping therapy! :)
