So I started a bit ago with my parquet (I know I'm stuck on this technique, but we're gonna just keep going with it) cards. It's such a cool way to use lots of fun designer series paper. These are cards for my college students and adult friends. The stamps are from the Cheer All Year set.
Here's a close up of some of the seriously cute and spooky DSP. The card base colors reminded me of candy corn, so I had to eat some.
Here's what I came up with on round two. The cute little vampire from the Haunt Ya Later stamp set made an appearance.
For all my littles, I went to town coloring the images from that stamp set. I've seen a lot of recent articles about how coloring is great for adults, playing with your stamps and stamp and write markers is even more fun than adult coloring books, I think.
I stamped the images in black Stazon ink and just had fun coloring.
Here is my group of happy witch cards:
I mean, really! So cute and easy and I'm pretty sure my little niece's will be super happy to get these cards in the mail. For my nephews, I colored up a few vampier boys.
Isn't he cute peeking in the window!?! Here are a few more fun cards:
And just for fun, here's a picture of all the cards I made!
When thinking about getting the cards ready to mail, I thought I should stamp something cute on the envelope. I was going to go with the spider stamp from Cheer All Year, but then I didn't want to scare or startle postal workers and friends all over the country, so I used the owl stamp from Among the Branches instead!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that I have inspired you to make a card or two and send it out.
