No Stamp Cards

Hello!  Lisa here today to share some clean and simple cards made without stamps.  Most of the time when I sit down to make a card I reach for my stamps.  But this time I limited myself to using only patterned papers and embellishments to create my cards, something I found fun and refreshing.  If you remember my last post I talked about buying products in one collection to make putting projects together easy, and I've done just that here too...

  1. For my first card I started by layering and trimming some pattered paper.
  2. I then layered the sentiment with a matching die cut.
  3. Completed with some enamel hearts.

For my next card I used rub-ons for my sentiment.

  1. I trimmed patterned paper and adhered it to my card base.
  2. I added embellishments and rub-ons 

Both are super simple and easy to re-create.  Just the way I like it!  Hope you've enjoyed my post today, and that you were inspired to get out your patterned papers and embellishments and see what you can create!
