SSINKspiration: Quick & Easy Card

It's the end of the month and time for another Quick & Easy Card Post over at SSINKspiration!  I love Quick & Easy cards!  This one took me about 10 minutes to create from start to finish...you can't get much more quick than that!

I started my card with a Strawberry Slush card base.  I used my favorite print from the Kaliedoscope DSP pack to make a banner with the Banner Framelits and my Big Shot!

Then I stamped a flower from the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set in Strawberry Slush ink on Whisper White cardstock.  The coordinating punch made it so easy to cut out!  

I finished my card with a Basic Black button tied with a little bit of Whisper White Baker's Twine!

So Quick & Easy!

SSINKspiration: Celebrating Babies

Today over at SSINKspiration we are Celebrating Babies!  Baby Cards are one of my favorites to make!  The occasion of having a new baby in your family is one of the happiest and I just love to celebrate when a new little joins the world!

So here is my card today...

I used the stamp set: Label Love.  Its an all occasion stamp set that I just absolutely love!  There are so many punches that go along with this stamp set and that just makes creating all the easier!

For this card I used the Artisan Label Punch and the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch.

I also have to say that the High Tide Designer Series Paper was a big surprise when I opened it.  In the catalog I just kinda passed by it...over and over and over again.  Then I decided to get some for myself and WOW!  Not all of the images have to do with fishies and whales.  This super cute star pattern is one of the patterns and I LOVE IT!

Supplies Used
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Pool Party
DSP: High Tide
Stamp Set: Label Love
Inks: Basic Gray, Summer Starfruit
Punches: Artisan Label, 7/8" Scallop Circle
