Quick and Easy cards

I have a heap of old “Project Life by Stampin’ Up!” cards, which I haven’t used and decided it was time to do something with them.
I tried the Project Life style of scrapbooking but in the end I love the traditional way.
And I am planning to do some scrapbooking soon, so I promise to share the pages when I get back into it.
In the meantime……

I have kept the cards nice and simple because I am planning on donating these to Combat Cards, an Australian organisation which sends the cards over to our troops stationed in various countries so that they can send handmade cards home to their loved ones.
Combat Cards requirements are that the cards don’t have too many layers, or lumpy bits, and no sparklies either.
The Project Life cards are a great way to create gift cards quickly and easily.  Most of these have just had a greeting stamped on to them and that’s all the stamping involved.

I’m not sure what you call Quick and Easy cards, are they Queasy cards?

Happy stamping!

Botanical Butterflies

I made a very quick and easy card today, featuring the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper.
The papers are only available until the end of March as part of SaleaBration.

The butterfly on my card has been cut out from the papers, but of course you could stamp a butterfly and then colour it.  I wanted to keep it quick and easy.

Happy Stamping!

Kinda Eclectic Quick Cards

A couple more very quick and easy cards, this time using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.

These could be in any colours you choose.  For this card I have chosen some of my favourite Stampin’ Up! colours – Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Crisp Cantaloupe.  I have coloured the rhinestones using Blendabilities to match the colours.
Or how about his colour combo for a Christmas card?

 

This time I have used Real Red, Garden Green and Crushed Curry.

Try your own favourite colours, and just have fun mixing and matching colours.
Happy stamping!
