Take Note of my New Toys!


I found another challenge blog : Open-Minded Crafting Fun

They have a mega first challenge! The theme is New Toy or New Technique.

I opted for the new Toy and made 2 little quick & easy CAS note cards!

My new toy is the background stamp, one of a set of 4 from Chiswick.

When I saw it, I had to have it. It is the perfect size for little cards, ATC's & tags. While browsing in the shop, I found the perfect partner for my stamp set, stickers from Upikit!

I stamped the background directly to the card using Victorian Velvet Distress ink. The green flowery heart sticker was layered on pink & green paper and added with dimension tape.

The blue background is the second impression done with Indigo Blue Impress Dye Ink. The sticker was added directly onto the card.

I really like the simplicity of the 2 note cards and the way the 2 inks changed the look of the background. I hope you like it too!

I'm also adding my 2 note cards to the Simon Says Monday Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes! My little cards are perfect for this challenge, because any design or style or project can be entered!
