In Color Cards


In between writing a 20 page paper (first draft of one section of my master's thesis - yikes!) for my Wednesday night class I had time to squeeze in a little stamping this week.  I decided to play around wit the "In Color" series:  Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, and Melon Mambo.

I've been demo-ing these mini cards at workshops lately, and decided to stock up on a whole bunch for myself while playing around with different color combinations.  At just 3x3 inches, these mini square cards are the perfect size for me to slip in with customer orders or gifts.  For all you mom's out there - wouldn't these be cute to stuff into your child's backpack or lunchbox?

Stampin' Up! Products used:  Ink pads and cardstock in each Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, and Melon Mambo, Whisper White cardstock, Scallop border punch, heart to heart punch, Sanded background stamp, Love You Much stamp set.

When I have time to make cards for myself and my stash (which doesn't feel like too often since I'm almost always preparing for a workshop or class!) I always make things in sets or bulk to stock up!  I had a lot of fun playing around with a little different fold and the Flower Fancy stamp set.  I really like the bold look of this set, but I'm also thinking they'd be pretty in pastels!

Darling! I love those cards. I finally got out my stamps to play yesterday and I feel so out of sorts with stamping... like I forgot how to make a cute card! I need to go hang out on SCS for awhile and find my groove! Ack!
