Stamp-A-Stack Cards


These are the cards we made for our Thank You Card Stamp-A-Stack. I changed one of them to use as a Sympathy card, as I had a dear friend lose a relative this week. I have alternate greetings available for the girls who request it so that they can customize the cards they make to suit their needs. We had a great time crafting! Hope those of you who were thinking about will join us next time:)

When the envelopes have that special bit of attention, it really makes the card more elegant! This envelope is lined with the same Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper that we punched with the Scallop Square Punch. We used Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand and Brocade Blue Card Stock. The filligree brad is just the right touch to add interest but not make it too busy. I CASED this simple layout from SCS (can't remember who) and will definitely find it handy for many different occasions.

This card was actually my favorite! Black and Red are such a striking combination. Those of you that stamp with me have probably noticed that I seem to find Baroque Motifs Stamp Set to be the perfect accent for many of my projects. I used the little flower to add variety to the black piece of cardstock. Though it does not show up in the picture, we added them with Basic Black ink to give it a faint background.








This next card, is the one I changed to a Sympathy card. So quick and easy with the top note die! I am always looking for fancy ways to snazz up the inside of a card using dark color base card stock. The white top note gives me an easy to decorate writing area that is quite distinct!

This last card is a 4x4" card made with Fresh Cuts Notes. Everyone enjoyed working with this easy, pre-scored notecard and matching envelope. The colors used are Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Cameo Coral. These are fast and fun to make when we used the Fresh Cuts Stamp Set. The five petal flower punch and boho blossoms punch.


Thanks for visiting!!

Great idea to use the Top Note (my favorite die!!) for the inside of a color CS. Your cards are darling and I will be doing a CASE.
Thanks for the fun.
