A Simple Set of Cards

Here we are again, it's Monday and I have a set of cards that hopefully show what you can do with a few ink colours and a small floral stamp.

Products Used From Clare Curd Crafts
Hampton Art Stamps - Tropical Travelogue 1 - small flower image from this set
Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey
Paula Pascual Stamps - Big Sentiments - 'Thinking of You' sentiment
Paula Pascual Stamps - Punchable Labels - Label Shaped Stamp and Friendship quote

The cards are all very simple and don't need much explanation - with the card above I stamped the label on to the card front and on to a piece of copier paper; I cut out the shape from the copier paper and used it as a mask over the image on the card.
I used Wild Honey Distress ink on to the floral stamp, then took the Rusty Hinge ink and inked around the edges, then stamped. Finally, stamped the sentiment and the friendship quote.

I stamped the label shape, masked it and then stamped the flowers, first in Wild Honey and then again in Rusty Hinge.

Again, I stamped the label image, masked it and then stamped the floral image in Rusty Hinge across the card. And it's as simple as that!

I love these...simple classic neat and elegant, so often don't see white space on cards, but I think it somehow makes them ever so more outstanding. Beautiful
