Three Circles

Today I share a clean and simple card layout from a friend (thanks Hanne!!!)  I was able to make several of these in a short amount of time. I've been so busy with work and other things in my personal life that when I do have time to stamp it's typically either for JUGS or for My Time Made Easy.  I have not had a chance to do any creating just for me, just because. SO these cards were just because - no challenge to be entered, no contest to be trying for, no design team requirements - just me making what I want! (Mind you I'm not complaining about JUGS or MTME - I love them both - just don't get a lot of time to create for creation's sake right now.)

SO here's the basic card - simple layout - one or two layers of matting for color accent, scor pal scoring a couple of lines for texture and interest. The rest is stamping, punching, embellishing. I also wanted cards without bulky embellishments for mailing purposes. All of these cards are featuring stamps from PTI's anniversary set. I love the simple designs and the fact that I can punch them out quickly and easily. No copics or complex coloring - just stamp n' punch.

Card #1 - stamped in New Leaf and Terracotta Tile.  Gold ball embellies.

Card #2 - stamped in New Leaf ink - punched then added flat red "berries" and a few silver balls.

Card #3 - stamped in New Leaf - stamped a 2nd time in Plum Pudding - cut out the purple butterflies and flowers and mounted right over the green ones so it looks like two step coloring. Two flat backed pearls for flower centers.

Here's the whole set - total time about 30 minutes. YAY ! I think these would make cute card sets to use as gifts too.

Thanks for looking and for stopping by. I am blessed by those of you who willingly follow my blog - I hope I bring you some sort of inspiration. I know YOU are inspirations to me!

Hugs n smiles,
