I’m not a complete slacker

I have made a few cards – one to keep on hand just in case and some for the CardsforHeroes.org to send over to the troops.
This one I shall keep around in case a birthday or special occasion sneaks up on me. I used one of my crocheted flowers and Hero Arts stamps. PTI paper – Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise and Dark Chocolate.

Here are some of the cards for the troops:
More Hero Arts stamps
Look ma, no layers! I stamped all of the images directly on the card front and I like it! The fern and swirly thing are Hero Arts, the verse is from The Cat’s Pajamas.
Cuttlebug embossing folder, Inkadinkado stamp.
Different CB embossing folder, Hero Arts stamp.
This one is really simple – patterned paper, Fiskars Apron Lace border punch and a stamp (dunno company).
Same as above, SU border punch, flowers, stamp (CTMH, I think).
I did a few more of each one and just changed up the verse and/or the paper and embellishments, but these were quick to make and hopefully will brighten someone’s day. I intend to get more done this evening and over the weekend and send them off next week. I hope to make this an ongoing project of mine and send some at least once a month, if not more often.

  1. I love that Hero Arts fern stamp! I've been looking for something like that - it looks so simple but so.. exotic at the same time. Beautiful cards :)

  2. These are all so wonderful. Great papers and your layouts are just perfect for these cards. Simple and totally elegant! ~chris

  3. Absolutely gorgeous and so creative too....and as always!

  4. I have the CB embossing folders too, but wasn't sure what to do with them. Your cards are a wonderful example. Love what you did with them!

  5. These are gorgeous cards! I think the top one is my fave--I love bright colors and butterflies!
