Thinking of You card by Nicole Nowosad and Birthday card by Patty Folchart

Good morning everyone! I am happy to be back to share fun card, using lots of Hampton Art stamps.

Thinking of You card by Nicole Nowosad

I started this card by stamping the script pattern onto some white cardstock, slightly overlapping the design:

I then added some stamped butterflies in varying colors and then stamped a secondary background with the “butterfly wishes” stamp from Jillibean Soup.

The idea for this card began with the Echo Park Wooden Nickel paper.  I thought it would make a nice masculine birthday card so I stuck with a manly color palette.

Happy Birthday card by Patty Folchart

Using a circle punch I chose three of the coins from the paper and punched them out. To begin this card I chose a teal damask print for the base and then added the distressed paper border strips vertically as shown. I distressed the wider border strip. 

Then I added the punched circle coins, popping up the center one with foam dots. Then I reached for the Echo Park Scoot set and stamped the Happy Birthday stamp onto the grid paper with turquoise ink and stamped two of the triangles in the same ink. I then fussy cut the pieces and inked the edges. The sentiment was added to the center coin and the triangles were added with foam dots to the top and bottom of the card as shown. That was it, a quick and simple card.

The best part about this card was that the papers I used were from a feminine collection, just shows how with a little thought you can make any paper collection do what you want it to.

Awaiting a Celebration,
