Two beautiful cards by Leanne Allinson

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a card that could be created easily in 10 minutes!  Gather your supplies and get ready to set your timer!

Hello, Smile card by Leanne Allinson

What you will need: Turquoise cardstock (8.75" x 4"); white cardstock (4" x 3.5"); scrap piece of white cardstock; stamps; ink - yellow, orange, turquoise and beige; foam dots; pearls; sewing machine.

1. Cut turquoise cardstock to size and fold in half.  Cut white cardstock to size and machine stitch around the outside edge.  Adhere white cardstock to the turquoise cardstock.
2. On a scrap piece of white cardstock, stamp images of the speech bubbles in yellow, orange and turquoise. I have used the Jillibean Soup: Chilled Cucumber Soup/small set 1 (JB0041); and Bella Blvd/Kiss Me (IC0225). Trim around the outside edge of each image.
3. Add foam dots to two of the speech bubbles.  Add the stamped images to the card overlapping each speech bubble.  
4. Using the Fresh Vegetable Soup (JB0026) butterflies, stamp the image in beige directly to the white cardstock on the card.  Finish the card by adding a few small pearls near the butterfly images.

Hampton Art:
stamps -  Jillibean Soup/Chilled Cucumber Soup small set 1 (JB0041); Fresh Vegetable Soup (JB0026); Bella Blvd/Kiss Me (IC0225).
ink - Stampin' Up (daffodil delight, tempting turquoise, crumb cake); Close To My Heart (sunset).

embellishments - machine stitching; Kaisercraft pearls; foam dots; cardstock.


Hello Everyone.  I just love how a few simple elements can often create an elegant card.  Today I have simply layered my stamped images between some glittered cardstock and a square of vellum.  Adding a little bit of extra bling finishes off the card perfectly.
