Springy Note Cards

Hello Everyone!

Well about this time in February I wake up to cabin fever!  Michigan is preparing again for another winter storm and I want to go out and play in the dirt in my gardens.  My oh my….where is spring?  I guess I’ll just need to be a bit more patient.  I know spring will be here soon.

I made this cute note card set to help pacify my “condition” .  I think the images from the Silhouette Sentiments Hostess stamp set are just adorable.

My card base measures 4-1/4″ x 11″ (scored and folded @ 5-1/2″) using the Confetti White card stock from Stampin’ Up!  I felt the natural fibers in this paper helped highlight the floral images that I stamped onto Whisper White card stock.

The ink colors used on this image are Concord Crush and Wild Wasabi Classic Ink.

For a nice clean look I added a clear rhinestone jewel in the center of one flower.

Each note card has a different sentiment on the front which makes for a nice variety of uses when given as a gift.

I added the same image onto the front of the envelopes and embossed the back flaps for an elegant touch.


Thanks for stopping in and I hope today’s project helped to cheer you if you too have the winter blues!


Introducing Inkin’ Cute Card Kits


I have been working very hard on designing some unique card kits which I have named Inkin’ Cute Card Kits.  I hope you find these kits instructional, motivating and just darn cute!  With each kit I will feature a current stamp set from Stampin’ Up!   Note:  Any stamp set that you may already have in your inventory certainly may be substituted. I will also include a sentiment idea in my videos to give you an additional design option.

Birds and Blooms – 2011


Each kit will include all the consumable products you will need to complete a total of 12 A2 cards (6 each of 2 designs). All kits contain very high quality materials, gently packaged in a resealable cellophane package.

How To Order: The Birds & Blooms kit is available for sale here in my Etsy Shop.  Have fun shopping!

The whimsical birds and sweet flowers compliment each other perfectly in this introductory kit.  I have combined the soft neutral colors of Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Tempting Turquoise and Blushing Bride together with a pop of Rose Red.  This kit features the 9 piece rubber stamp set Aviary (wood-mount #116956/clear-mount #120462) .  This set is very fun and has the cutest birdies you’ll ever see!
