Got Ten Minutes? (posted by Judith)

Hello everyone, I have a couple of quick cards for you today, using the Mellow Fruitfulness stamp set. For my first card, I punched out four squares of smooth watercolour paper from my stash of scrap card, but any smooth card will do. I coloured three of the stamps using water based markers, and then stamped them onto the squares. I embossed them with clear embossing powder. I used one of the sentiments for the fourth square. I used Distress Ink to add a bit of colour to all of the edges of the squares. To finish the card, I simply chose some deep red card, and a piece of gingham ribbon.

I quite liked one of the images on my first card, and so I decided to use it again on my second card.I stamped it again onto a die cut oval, embossing it as before with clear embossing powder, and adding a touch of red Distress Ink around the edges. I chose another sentiment which I turned into a little tag with the addition of a hole and some string.

I found some gingham paper in my stash and used some more of the red card, with a touch of green ribbon this time, to tie all of the elements together.

Two very quick cards, using these lovely stamps, showing that you do not have to spend ages to create a fun project. I hope that I have given you some inspiration, thanks for stopping by, Judith xx


  1. Fun cards to make I think and the result is so beautifully fresh!

  2. Lovely cards. Just shows you don't always have to spend hours on a card to get a good result

  3. Great idea and easy . Just my style

  4. These images are lovely and the water based markers have given them a lovely look, especially with the clear EP over the top which gives them a gorgeous shine. Simple but classy. x

  5. They're both lovely, thanks for yet more inspiration.

  6. Your use of the Distress Markers on the stamps has worked so well with these images - especially with the shading on the apples image you used in both samples. Embossing with clear powder adds a lovely touch of texture too. The thoughtful associations of your accenting trims for both cards adds a lovely touch to each.
