A Couple of Easy Cards..Sorta Easy


Simon Says-Add a Bit o'Green

Stamping Sensations- Spring

I found this fun and easy to do. I took distress inks and pressed them on a craft mat, watered it down and then pressed down my stamp. I stamped it onto white cardstock and it gave it a nice whispy look. This stamp is about 19 years old and I need to use it more. I stamped the sentiment in multi green dye ink and heat embossed it in turquoise sparkle. I placed it onto green cardstock, added the sticker border  and a bit of bling.

Butterfly Challenge- 3D decoupage, die cuts, colours in daffodil, dark green, Damson blue

Double D Challenge- 1st signs of spring

4 Seasons- daffodils from the mood board

Dream Valley- die cuts or punches

I like the mood boards and this was an easy card because I used the decoupage set and just pieced everything together. It was a bit finicky with trying to cut up the pop up dots to fit on the small pieces to create the 3D effect. I added the sentiment, the glitter in gold and, finally, die cut butterflies that I cut out from blue remnant pieces I had from my colouring escapades.


  1. I like the simplicity of the first one.

  2. They're all beautiful, but the first is made with my most favourite green. I imagine the recipients of these lovely cards must think themselves quite blessed. I can't remember when I last received a card made by someone. Makes me feel like I want to try something like this too.
    That old stamp... where did it come from? Do you have many of them?
    Enjoy your card making adventures, Jenny

    1. I can't recall where I got it from but probably my stamp store that has since closed since the couple retired. I have a ton of stamps.. a lot!

  3. They're both great, but I think I like the first one best.

  4. A lovely soft watercolour effect to the first one, many thanks for sharing at Stamping Sensations challenge.
