Quick and simple!

I wanted to ink up a stamp set that I just got in the mail, but I didn't want to go through all the thought process of choosing coordinating papers, cutting them to size, trimming borders, etc. So I just made a simple card using brown ink, some ribbon, Kraft paper and a couple rhinestone stickers.

Here's my creation! I kind of like it. :)

Thinking of You

This fun image came with Unity's March 2009 kit of the month. I did a little paper piecing on this one and had fun with it. I love how the soft yellow paper goes with that Kraft background.

I also broke out my Martha Stewart border punch for this one. I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of her clear stamps, but her border punch designs always tend to be my faves.

You're the Cherry on Top!

I used paper from my scrap pile for this. To me, sometimes it's easier to do that. Some papers are just too pretty to cut to pieces so when they're already all cut up, it takes the thinking out of it. "Hmmm...should I cut this up for a card now or save it for something bigger later?" is always my thought process.

When it's already in my scrap pile, I'm rescuing it from the trash and therefore it's my mission to make use of it.

The stamps are from Unity's June 2009 kit of the month. (Someone on SCS sold it to me at a great price!) I also used a Fiskars edge punch on this and I believe the paper is by Cosmo Cricket.
