Five in Five

Happy Thursday!  It’s Becca with a little twist on my design team post.

Sometimes you need a card in a hurry.  This week, I wanted to make five different cards where each one took about five minutes.  And I wanted to do them with the limited supplies.

Don’t get me wrong, I love all my ribbons, markers, papers, gadgets, gizmos, and whatnots, but you can create a big impact with a couple well-designed stamp sets and a few embellishments.

Here’s each one alone:

I stamped the circle first, stamped it again on a post-it note, then cut out the center to create a mask before stamping the daffodils in the middle.  The sentiment was stamped before I put the Washi tape over top.

For the next two, I created “patterned paper” using the Doodle Design circle and three dots.  The Washi tape went over top of a white strip to keep the pattern from showing through.  To attach the banners, I used a regular stapler (which I’m counting as an “embellishment”).

If you want to limit yourself to one stamp set, here are a couple with just the daffodil set.

Two stamp sets, one ink pad, two colors of paper, and two embellishments.  Beautiful doesn’t have to complicated, expensive, or time-consuming.

Until next time,
