Three Amazing cards by Britt Bass and Kim Frantz!

Hello! Britt Bass here, bringing you a pretty little Baby shower card using two Echo Park licensed stamps sets and Clearsnap chalk ink.

Princess card by Britt Bass

I love scrapbooking supplies of (pretty much) every shape, size, and style but there is nothing quite like the versatility of a stamp and ink.  For this card I used only a bit of green cardstock (for the leaves) and let the stamps do all the talking.  I loved the pretty shape that the die template gave to my card and it really gave me an excellent canvas for my stamping.

Creating embellishments, like the flowers on my card, is one of my favorite ways to use stamps.  If I want these flowers to coordinate with a blue and green collection all I have to do is change my ink.

Britt Bass here with a card inspired by the summer sunshine, and a beautiful sentiment from one of the Authentique licensed stamp sets, stamped in Clearsnap pigment ink.  

You Are My Sunshine card by Britt Bass

I really wanted to create a scene that seemed to burst of the front of the card.  There isn't much stamping on this card, its true, but I find that I often start with a sentiment that gives me a clear, strong feeling.  Though this is an oft-used sentiment, I think that the movement of the sun's rays and the cheerful pinwheels give a thousand extra words; You are my sunshine, my playfulness, and my puffy polk-a-dot clouds.  You are all the good things a day can hold.

Thinking of You Card by Kim Frantz

This fun clipboard-style card can be used for any occasion. The "clip" is cut from cardstock and simple adhered to the top of the card. Tuck elements under the clip for a random or collage look.
