It's probably time I shared these cards I made the week after Christmas, don't you think? I went a little nuts with my Lil' Inker "The Little Things" stamp set, stamping and cutting out bunches of birds and leaves and flowers. Very simple with no coloring, but certainly lots of cutting. There's a matching die set available, but I honestly think it was quicker to stamp out lots and cut at my leisure. I was in no hurry.
There's something about the simple, almost primitive folk-artsy look of these stamps that appeals to me. I made five cards, one after the other, but I'll only share two of them. The first is more involved -- lots of leaves to make a wreath, both stamped and cut out, with a few flowers placed here and there. Stitched and framed with a make-believe bird for fun.
The second card is more clean and simple, and it uses the Lil' Inker "Silly Stitched Die Set", as well. The die set comes with rectangles and circles. The circles make the stitched pattern, but do not cut out a shape.
So, yay, I added three birthday cards, a thank you card, and a hello card to my stash. Really trying to get ahead and this simple stamping helped a lot.
I hope you've enjoyed a stamp happy week, or any kind of happy week, and are looking forward to the weekend soon to come. If I get some cards photographed I'll pop in next week. Take care!
