Simple Saturday

My weekend time is usually spend doing family things and time is very limited for stamping. Today, I have two very quick cards to show you (both take about 10 minutes to create!)

The first card was created for the inspiration challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Although it is difficult to see in the picture, there is an embossed edge on the vanilla piece. I just love the simplicity of this. The main image is from SU Garden Silhouettes. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is available at Stamper's Dream.

Materials used: Stamps-Garden Silhouettes (SU!), sentiment - Hero Arts; cardstock-kraft, vanilla, black; ink-black; markers-orange, mustard, choc chip (SU!); cuttlebug and Nestabilities; black brads; ribbon (SU!); hemp (SU!).

The next card is a quick little card that I made using scraps on my table. It measures 4.25 by 4.25 and will be a cute card when I need one in a pinch! All stamps are by Hambo Stamps. The sentiment cracks me up!

Materials used: Stamps-Hambo; cardstock-black, white, decorative paper by American Crafts; ribbon; markers (SU!); brilliance black ink.

I will be back tomorrow with a short tutorial on the m&m card I posted a few days back. A few have asked for directions and I figured I would post them on here.

I almost have my list done of stamps for sale (What a chore!)

Don't forget to add a comment for blog candy below!

I would have left a comment anyway

The first card is just adorable. I love the quick and oh so sweet look. The one huge problem I have with that is that it takes me an hour to come up with a 10 minute card. Yours turned out fab I love it. I see casing in the near future
