Floral Delights Card

Stamping techniques used:
(1) 2-Step Stamping: when you use overlap stamped images using multiple stamps to create one finished image.  I used 3 different stamps for the flower on this card.
(2) Second Generation Stamping: First ink your stamp, then stamp on a piece of scrap paper (this will remove some of the ink), then stamp on your desired paper.  This will give your image a softer look/color.  I did this for the pink part of the flower above.  I used the same color of ink but used the second generation stamping technique for the solid part of the flower, then I stamped the second image on top of it using regular stamping.

All supplies used are by CTMH: D1189 Floral Delights stamp set, D1212 Playful Flourishes stamp set, paper from Creative Basics Boom-Di-Ada Collection

Notepads for Kids (or Adults)

These notepads were fun and easy to make, and also inexpensive.  My kids have used them for party favors and in place of birthday treats at school.  The kids love them!

Directions: Cut your paper 3″ x 6 1/4″.  Score 3″ from each end and fold.  This gives you a 1/4″ in the center for the height of your inner paper.  Decorate the outside of the notepad however you wish.  Use double stick tape to adhere a post-it pad on the inside and your done!  If you plan to use eyelets like I did, I would recommend using the Crop-a-Dile.  It sets beautifully and will not leave any sharp edges.  I used CTMH papers: Rough ‘N Tumble, More to Adore, Good Times, Whoops-A-Daisy, and Let’s Get Together.  Stamps used were also CTMH: Little Boys, Adorable, Star Struck, Flutter, Fun Times, and Love in Bloom.

A Card From Scraps

One of the easiest ways to make cards is from scraps.  Match up a couple pieces of paper and embellishments, chose a stamp and you’re set!  Here’s an example:
