Fifteen Minute Cards

Hello everyone, we have some more creative projects to share with you today that only take a few moments to make. We hope to show you with our simple and time-saving projects, that you can make some really eye-catching cards and tags in a very short amount of time. So, make yourselves comfortable, and take a look at the fabulous projects that the Design Team have created for you this month.

Rachel has created two amazing cards using the Here be Dragons stamp set. She has used stencils and Distress Inks for the backgrounds, and she coloured her images using water based markers.

Asha has created two very pretty cards using white embossing, adding Distress Inks to paint the images.

Magda has povided some gorgeous nautical projects this month, just perfect for the Summer. The first project is a set of three ATC's:
Her second project is a brilliant masculine Birthday card:
Anne's floral cards are so different, both using the oval cling mounted individual flower stamps. She has created two beautiful designs for us:

Here is a collection of cards from Brenda. The first is a card created by using three colours of Distress Ink on the base of her card, and she then used a baby wipe to drag some of the colour. The focal image is from the Butterfly Flourish Swirls stamp set, which she stamped in Black Archival Ink. She then bleached some of the colour from the image, and coloured it with Brushos.
For her second card, she stamped the swirl from the same stamp set as above, using a purple dye ink. The panel was mounted onto silver mirri card, and a few silver gems were added.

For her third card, she stamped the Cornflower image using Archival Ink, and heat embossed the details using clear embossing powder. She coloured the image using sparkle pens. Using Distress Inks and a honeycomb stencil, she spomged the background and inked the edges. She added some ribbon and co-ordinating card to may and layer the background.
For her final card, she used an acetate stencil to sponge Distress Inks and then stamped the sentiment from the Words of Inspiration stamp set, using Archival Ink. She then added some random flourishes using Distress Ink.

Zoe has created some beautiful butterfly themed cards for us this month. The first uses a panel of coloured butterflies:
The second uses butterflies to create a background, as well as the focal point:
The third uses the butterflies in a dimensional way:
Finally she has created another pretty CAS card using the same shaped card as in the previous sample:
