These cards are the last of my samples from my weekend stampathon. The themes here were Mother's Day and Graduation. I love the little *Hello Mom* tag, it just adds a touch of whimsy. And for the graduation cards I used a generic *good luck* or *congratulations* sentiment. You can't see it but I used glossy card stock for the main images, it just makes the ink pop out. Other patterned paper is from Crate Paper. I love the texture and somewhat worn look to their papers, good stuff! The oval I used for the shadow at the base of the watering can is from A Muse, a must have stamp!! And of course the Papertrey stamps are front and center on these cards. I think you could stamp a bazillion different combinations of flowers from these sets and never get bored. They are FUN!! And thank you Nichole for mentioning me on your blog...you definitely made my day..again!!
Tip of the day: If you like to stamp cards to have on hand for your *stash* basket, stamp a stack that have generic sentiments or no sentiments at all on the front. Then you can add a sentiment later or simply hand write a note inside. For example, I used a *good luck* sentiment on my graduation cards but if I don't use them all, I can use them for another occasion later on. If you do a bunch of *Thinking of You* type cards, they can be used for lots of occasions such as *Sorry to hear about your gall bladder attack*....or *Just wanted to say hello*.....or *sorry your kids are driving you nuts, I know the feeling* type cards. Snort!
And have you seen the newest Papertrey set called Faux Ribbon?.....WOWZERS!!!...you gotta have it just for the sentiments alone!! My mail lady Dorothy came by in her little red mail truck yesterday...I nearly climbed inside to look for my square Papertrey box!! I'm hoping to use my new set this weekend!! Have a wonderful, wacky, wild weekend my friends!!!!!!!! Hope you get to stamp!
