Pastel Lockhart

I'm having so much fun creating new cards for my stash basket. Birthday cards were definitely a must have. First I stamp for my own personal stash. I make a list of all the cards I need for the month and make sure I create enough for myself. Most of the time I stamp enough for months in advance but I'm really running low because I gave away a bunch of cards for Christmas gifts. So once I'm done with picking out my cards, the rest go into my stash basket for customers......and my mom.

These are birthday cards created with the Lockhart Single Cupcake stamp. It's so cute, I just love it. I cut out the cupcake with Spellbinder's Die Templates and stamped the mini dot circle border from Papertrey Ink around the edge. Background paper is from Making Memories, sentiments from Stampin' Up, images colored with Copic markers! You'll be seeing lots of cards this month with white for the base. I am loving this look, so clean and crisp and everything matches! These are some cheery get well cards. But what I love about the Lockhart Robe and Get Comfy sentiment is that they go beyond *get well*. Get Well to me means that someone is sick and sometimes you need a card for those that need something a little different. One of these hit the mail box this morning for my mother's good friend who just had knee replacement surgery. She wasn't sick but definitely could use a nice card. So I thought the robe and this sentiment would be perfect. I couldn't have picked two better stamps to use for Marilyn's card. So good thinking Karen when you were designing these stamps!! Karen's slippers or socks stamps could also be used for these types of cards. Cards were made from the same supplies as above....rectangle Spellbinder's Die Templates, SU! ribbon, Copic markers.
You can purchase the following at Ellen's online store: Copic Markers, Spellbinder's Nestabilities Die Templates, all Karen Lockhart stamps.

I love those cards especially the white background. I use white alot, so clean and crisp. I'm sure your mom's friend is going to love the robe card. It's perfect. I need to get some sentiment stamps. :)
