#Simple Stamping and Simply Happy Card!

Today's card is so pretty, and so simple to make!  Not a lot of fancy tools or techniques, just simple stamping and two die cut framelets.  I used the Vibrant Vases stamp set, (which is carrying over to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog), and the Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper. Love how "happy" this paper is!

Tea Together Mother's Day Card

Whew! Can't believe Mother's Day is next week!  I've been working on cards, and thought I'd share this one.  I used the tea cup from the Tea Together stamp set, Gingham Gala DSP, and the Daisy Punch to create the sweet flower.

You can make this card in a flash for any occasion!  This is going to be a graduation card, but it would be just as nice as a "birthday" or "thinking of you" card!   The Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper and the Friendly Expressions stamp set are retiring soon.  Grab them while you can in my online shop!

Retiring Gingham Gala DSP and Daisy Punch

I love, love, love the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper, and I'm sorry it's retiring!  I've used it on this card, not only as DSP on the front but I punched the daisy flower out of it.  I also added vellum to the daisy, which gives it a softer look.  I think I will make one with each color from the Gingham DSP! I saw the idea for this card on Dawnsstampingthoughts.com
