Good afternoon,

I have a whole heaps of little cards to share with you today…from my playings from the weekend. These are Clean and Simple to the max!!…but so great for my stash when I need a quick card.

All of the cards use the current Play Date Cafe Challenge #86 colours…but I got a little distracted and added green to most of them.

So let’s begin…and I am entering this first one into the PDCC#86… hope it is not too simple! Can you see the subtle Envelope Pattern stamped on the flower? I also hand drew the border.

Aren’t these little birdies cute? They are from the Waltzing Mouse “Teeny Trees” set.

Bear in mind they are all small cards and will be so simple to reproduce if need be. I plan on making a few sets of some of these, maybe with their own little folder.

Supplies:

[3 flowers Thank you]

Stamps: Waltzing Mouse “Teeny Trees” stamp set – ‘Thank you’ sentiment, Hero Arts Envelope Pattern Woodblock stamp(S5507)
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress inks – Worn Lipstick, Tumbled Glass, Dried Marigold

Other Supplies: Small Retro flower punch, Kaisercraft pearls – snow, glossy accents (to adhere flowers), black felt pen
