Fun & Fresh Inspirational Cards!

Hi bloggers, Happy Sunday to you! I'm super excited to bring you some cheery cards to brighten up your Sunday.

First up is a card by a good pal of Simon Says Stamp, Britta Swiderski. I really love the tone on tone stamping and the pretty combination of yellow & pink.

To make your own version of this card, try the following ingredients:




The cards above & below are both made by a very talented and clever designer with a fantastic name! ;) I am talking about Steph! Be sure to check out her blog HERE for more inspiration. I think the card above would be so fantastic for a special guy in your life!

See the ingredients below to make your own version of this card:




Lastly, I love this CAS card by Steph.  It cleverly combines washi tape with layered pretty paper. I like how she just rounded off one corner to give it a unique look! Make something similar by using the ingredients below;




Thanks for reading today!

  96. Gifts are the projectors of your emotions. No matter how far you are from your loved terms, just a simple gift can put the lights on the dejected faces of them, who have been missing your presence on their special day. A gift actually brings your inner self before them. Visit www.hampersnationwide.com/Indonesia/Gift_Hampers_to_Indonesia.asp for details.
