Easter Card with Blender Pens

By | Cards, Easter, Techniques | No Comments

Easter is only a week away so you may already have all of your cards done for this year. The good news is you could use this card for just about any occasion! The spring colors are so pretty and appropriate for so many things. Just replace the “Happy Easter” with “Happy Birthday”, “Happy Mother’s Day”, “Thank You” or any other greeting that fits your needs. There are many ways to color in a stamped image, but my favorite way is with a blender pen and the ink from my Stampin’ Up! Classic ink pads. Watch this episode of Ink…

Quick & Easy Wedding Card

I love the Whisper White note cards because they make it quick and easy to make nice little cards. I’d say “cute little cards” but this one is really more elegant! Plus they come with envelopes so they are just great to have on hand. This note card would be perfect to give with a bridal shower gift or as a wedding card. Need wedding thank you cards? Just swap out the center greeting! Cut your pretty paper down to 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″ so that it fits on the front of the 3-1/2″ x 5″ note card. Quick & Easy!…

Can you believe it? It’s another Calypso Coral card! I seriously can not get enough of that color. At least this thanks card has some other colors thrown in on the pretty paper. I’m definitely not the most creative person around, but I have learned over the years how to take other people’s ideas and make them my own. I look for color combos and card layouts that I like and then use them to create cards with the supplies that I have. You could take just about any pretty paper you have and put it in place of the…
