Quick and Easy Cards

Today is the first day of our new Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Design Team and I am excited to bring you my first cards. I struggle with Quick and Easy but really like how these two turned I used both the Yippee-Skippee Stamp Set and Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. The first card uses Island Indigo, Calypso Coral, Pool Party with Whisper White. The great thing about the Gorgeous Grunge Set is that you can just stamp randomly and it makes for a quick and easy card. I used the 1 3/4"  Circle Punch after I stamped my image. I did distress the edges of the card stock to add to the grunge look and finished the card off with Island Indigo Baker's Twine.
The second card I made very similar except the colors are Pool Party, Island Indigo, Basic Gray, and Elegant Eggplant. I used more Whisper White which adds just a bit more contrast. I like how the diagonal stamp can be used to mimic Washi Tape, you can even stamp it on Vellum for a more 3 Dimensional look. Really they are just stamp and go type cards which are great when you need to send a quick note to a friend, child or even coworker. I hope you enjoyed our first day of the new Blog and  I would love to hear from you so if you would leave a comment and let me know you were here that would be great. Thanks for stopping by, Tonya
