Hello everyone, and Happy Monday. I hope you had a good weekend.
Today's cards that I'm sharing are using scraps from 'what's on my table'. You know the stuff that you stamp but don't like or wasn't what you had in mind once you start it, then you toss aside. Well, I have lots of those. I have a few 'masculine' birthdays this month, so decided to go through my pile to see if I could salvage any of it. I had success.
These were quick and easy, so here goes:
First card, I already had the leaf background stamp off (MFT stamps), and I already and the die cut Celebrate (MFT) inked up. Added a few other elements and this is the end result:
My second card - I had the sponging already done. Not sure what I had intended this one for, but I stamped Flourishes LLC - an image from Country Roads in black memento. I then stamped a branch from Penny Black in scattered straw along the side, top and bottom, just to fill in the open spaces.
I felt it still needed something, so cut some scrap paper using MFT Flag Stax dies and added a brad. Not sure if the brad is a bit distracting from the image. What do you think?
I wish all cards were this easy to pull together. I'm off to enjoy the afternoon outdoors. I'm off today, so need to get some much needed weeding done.
Enjoy your day!
