Simple and Quick Cards

The portability of the Clip It Up was mentioned in an earlier post.  That is one of my favorite things about it!  I am one of those paper crafters who keeps all of my supplies in our walk in closet and pulls it out to play every time I craft (nearly a daily basis!)  So you can imagine how important it is for me to have something so functional.  I can’t say enough how much I have absolutely LOVED having my Clip It Up.  Most of my Thickers (another love of mine!) are hanging on my Clip It Up and it’s so nice to have them right at my finger tips so I can flip through and make my pick.image

Today I wanted to share with you a card that I made using some of my favorite stamps and a bit of Versa Magic!

First I gathered my supplies:

Stamps – Mint Motif (Very Square, Very Square Sentiments - AVAILABLE at iheartpapers.com

Kraft cardstock; Pattern Paper – Pink Paislee (Bayberry Cottage)

Stickers – American Crafts (Thickers – Honey)

Ink – Ranger Distress In, Versa Magic

Punch – Martha Stewart


Secondly, I sewed around the edges and used Versa Magic on my Very Square stamp to create a subtle and small background.


Thirdly, I inked the first five words on my sentiment stamp but I did not ink the last word (which was friend) so that I could add a bolder element to the sentiment.


Lastly, I finished off my card punching by sewing over top of the stickers and then layering two butterflies that I punched out of my Pink Paislee (Bayberry Cottage) paper.  Sometimes, the most simple and quick cards can end up saying the most important thing while still looking very elegant.

  1. This card is GORGEOUS! I love it!! :)

  2. Very cute, so simple but with that lime green, it really makes a statement. I'm seeing this Martha Stewart punch everywhere, and every time I see it I love it even more, might have to get that one!
    P.S. I LOVE Thickers too!! My newest addiction!

  3. Great idea on not inking all of the stamp and using the THICKERS. Nice sewing job too. Would not have thought to sew over the thickers
