A few cards

I figured it was time for a mini stamp fest of sorts. Here are 2 of the 3 cards I made this evening. Be on the lookout for the third this Friday at clean & simple stamping. I just sat down and made whatever came to me. I had a few sketches that I used as inspiration, but it was really all about stamping for the fun of it. I really need to do more of that. It's not that I've got hung up on card calls or design team deadlines. I just haven't much felt like being creative. I guess work is a bit stressful, and probably will be for the next year or so. I need to remember to get back to art as a means of relaxation.

I am still loving these leaves from Turning a New Leaf. I don't think that's going to change ever. Leaves are so versatile! I thought orange, brown, and white, with a bit of bling would be nice.

So then, I was sitting there, thinking "what next?". And for some reason "fruit" came to mind. So I took out Fruitful and decided on the strawberries. I stamped the berries on vanilla instead of white to soften them a bit. Plus, I had this fabulous polka dot paper from the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit (don't you love when you can use seasonal products for other occasions).


  1. These are both so pretty! That strawberry one is just darling....its my fave!!


  2. great cards! I particularly love the strawberry card. I have that set and like using the strawberries in it, but I must say I love the original strawberry in the Green Thumb set better. I also love the placement of those orange leaves. I haven't inked up my leaves yet...can you belive it???!!!

  3. Both are pretty! I love the leaves with the bling.


  4. What great C&S cards! I love the polka dotted paper. I really love the orange leaf card! Unique, and stunning!



  5. Wow both great cards. I really like both!
