Cool Cards!






Wow! It has been a busy week. My family all left for NYC on Tuesday to visit more family before heading back to their own homes. We had so much fun while they were here. We spent almost all of our time outside, since the weather was so nice. It was sad to see them all leave.




So, not being in the best of moods, I wasn't really up for coloring images today, so I decided to print one of the easy to use card kits from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff this week. I was able to make three cards very quickly.


I used the coolkid card kit for these cards. I printed the kit on white paper and cut out the pieces. For the birthday card, I used a blue cardstock for my base, and layered the pieces on top, using brads for embelishments in the star centers. For the friend card, I also used blue cardstock for the base, and embelished with ribbon and prima flowers, finishing it up with a rubber stamped sentiment. For the together forever card, I sponged antique linen distress ink over the star panel and the bolts and embelished with ribbon and an eyelet for a different look. I layered the stars, rust and striped papers on a cream cardstock base and stamped the sentiment with brown ink. Three different cards, all made from the same card kit!


Since it has been such a big hit, Lindsay has decided to make last month's "special"a permanent deal - spend $5 and get a free stamp! And don't forget to hop through the Design Team's blogs to see where this week's freebie has been planted!

Love how you changed up the card kits! took me a minute to recognize them!

Karen said...

These came out great! You just reminded me that I have at least one of Lindsay's card kits already (I think maybe two!) and need to use them. You also might have just inspired me to print and put one together today. Easy peasy sounds fabulous to me today, for sure! :>

YIKES! I just realized that only two of my cards uploaded, not three! Since I told you how I made it, I've added the extra one on! Oh, bother! Thanks for all your wonderful comments! They make my day!
