Summer is Here! Cards to Inspire You

Grab some scraps of paper, a few 12 x12 sheets of double sided paper, a handful of Estelle's The Stampsmith rubber art stamps and a rainbow of Memento Dye Ink Dew Drop Pads to create these EASY PEASY mini collage cards. Background papers are from Scenic Route.

These were so easy. I cut a piece of 3.5" x 2.5" Neenah cream colored cardstock and incorporated images from the following The Stampsmith rubber art plates:

Floral Alphabet

Medieval Ornaments #2

Begin your stamping layers starting with the lightest Memento dye ink colors first. Finish with the darkest Memento dye ink color on top.

I used a Tsukineko long oval dauber to edge all four sides with a coordinating color of Memento dye ink before mounting it on my cardstock.

I hope the following cards inspire you to create some mini art collage pieces of your own. Better yet...have a few friends over for a stamping party...serve cupcakes and ice tea and stamp your little hearts out. Then have a card exchange!!!

Creatively yours,
Maria ;-)
