Good Morning! Today, Kim is starting "Mint Mondays" where she will feature Mint Motif projects and whatnot every Monday. How fun, huh? I thought I would play along this week and share a card I made with the new Mint Motif sets, Very Square and Very Square Sentiments. This is a long card, sized to fit in an SU! open ended envelope (I don't even know if they sell them anymore but I have some and have been making cards to fit them). Simple is the name of the game here...stamped the squares in different colors, then die cut them with a heart die (the basic set for the Cuttlebug from Provo Craft). I laid them out in a simple little arrangement and added my sentiment which incidentally is only part of a sentiment, I just inked the words I wanted to use. I just love the size, simplicity and usefulness of all of the sentiments in Very Square Sentiments. I added some embossing with a small polka dot embossing folder from Quickutz on one side and some True Black Twill (PTI) to break up the white.
Supplies: Stamps - Very Square, Very Square Sentiments (Mint Motif); Ink - Hawaiian Shores, Orange Zest, Raspberry Fizz, True Black (PTI), Lime Pastel, Yellow Citrus (Clearsnap); Cardstock - SS White (PTI); Other - True Black Twill (PTI), Heart Dies (Provo Craft)
And just cause I want to...I am sharing one more card today, another clean and simple one using some delicious colors. That raspberry-ish color is Claret ink from Palette, I love it...but am having a little bit of a hard time finding cardstock to match it so I just keep using it on simple stuff where it doesn't matter too much. Anyhow, the flower and sentiment are from PTI's Anniversay Set from last year, Everyday Classics and the leaves are from Turning a New Leaf. That cute little die cut is the Fillable Frames #3 die, I love it!
Supplies: Stamps - Everyday Classics, Turning a New Leaf (PTI); Ink - Lime Pastel (Clearsnap), Claret (Palette), True Black (PTI); Cardstock - SS White, True Black (PTI); Patterned Paper - Citrus Collection (DCWV); Other - Fillable Frames #3 Die (PTI), Black Rhinestone (Kaiser Craft)
Thank you for the visit today and for the orders of my stamp stuff, I really appreciate it! I still have lots more on my sale page if you're interested! Oh ya, I am also going to list these cards in my Etsy shop in case you are interested! Have a great start to the week!
