Hello and welcome to my second post as the Winnie & Walter Leading Lady!!
The products from the latest release are so fine, I just couldn’t stop making many many cards! And then I thought, how about thinking about making quick and easy cards. Not necessarily simple, just quick and easy. And I came up with this bunch. I guesstimate that each card could be completed within half an hour, provided you have all the supplies ready.
I did make a few cards, but I am featuring only 4 here – the selected 4! 😉 So lets begin!
The main focus on these cards are the elements made using the Big Balloon Cutaways and the Happy Birthday to You stamp set.
For my first set of cards, I wanted to add some bling and shine. So, after stamping the birthday cake, I used silver foil on the mint cake (not sure why its looking gold in the image!) and silver glitter embossing on the pink one. Since I wanted this to be quick, I just used a 2-way glue pen for the adhering the foil, and embossing pen for the embossing. I then fuzzy cut them both.
For the spotty background for the blue cake, I used Mini Scenery: Spotty, then a washi strip, and banners cut out using Essential: Lana’s Cutaways.
For the pink cake, I created a background of scripts and stars, made using the sentiments from Sentimental: Birthday and stars from Happy Dance.
For the second set of cards, I used the Big Balloon Cutaways with some pattern paper. Pattern paper is probably one of the easiest and quickest ways to add lots of fun and art to your card, without much work.
For the card with the big balloons, I cut the pattern paper using the two biggest balloon dies attached together, then adhered them on a scrap piece of paper which I cut using only the biggest die. Adhering them to the card then was really easy. The sentiment for this card comes from In a Word: Birthday and In Bloom: Carolina’s Florals.
For the other card, I adhered the pattern paper with some scrap card stock before die cutting. For the balloon strings, I used the leftover piece to cut a very thin strip, and adhered it to the card base directly. All the little sentiments come from Sentimental: Birthday, and are fuzzy cut (might have to spend a little time here ;)) I stamped the grey cardstock with the lines from Scenery: Stripes before adding the balloons and sentiments.
I hope you enjoyed these quick and easy cards! Leave a comment here for a chance to win the $30 gift certificate to the Winnie & Walter store. Winner will be announced at the end of this month.
