Hello, friends! Friday I shared Christmas cards, but today it's back to springtime. It's a lot like our kooky weather that can't make up its mind.
These are two very simple feel-good cards using a Pretty Potties stamp set by Pink Petticoat. I think it might have been a magazine freebie in 2013. Gosh, that's five years ago already. No matter the age when you're smitten, and I do love these stamps! There are no sentiments with this set, so I combined both with a Hampton Art sentiment set called "Celebrate Life".
Even though these stamps are five years old, they're new to me, having been received as a birthday gift in late October. My friend, Cheryl, went to great lengths to find them for me after she saw my adoring comment on Connie's blog where she'd used this set some time ago. It's quite a web of friendship we stampers have, isn't it? I'm feeling a lot of love!
These stamps seem to beg for clean and simple, so I gave them a lot of white space, but also worked in a little designer paper. The first card uses a die cut Palma Curve topper (Poppystamps), and the second card has a deep, double scalloped edge. The scallops were done with an old Stampin' Up slit punch.
Well, gee, I've had these stamps four months and am just now using them. Actually, that's not bad for me, considering I've got some not-yet-used stamps that have been sitting MUCH longer. I'm doing better, really. No more of this nonsense of letting them sit so long I lose interest in them. I'm so over that. Still working on catching up with the not-yet-used stuff, but I'm getting there. Are you in the same boat?
A full list of supplies can be found below my signature. I'll be back to visit again Wednesday. Till then... happy stamping!
