Cards with my Simply Scrappin’ Kit

I had some leftovers from my Simply Scrappin’ Kit so I decided to whip up a few cards.  My scrapbook pages offered the inspiration and the card stock stickers made these 2 cards take a total of 10 minutes to make.  Only 10 minutes to make something cute and meaningful AND save $3.99 on a store bought card?  Count me in!

Now get busy stampin’!

Welcome!!!!!!! (and a free gift)

Thank you for joining me, Beth, a.k.a. The Busy Stamper, for my inaugural post!  I am so excited to share my stamping and paper crafting journey with you.  I hope you will continue to join me for tips and inspiration to help motivate you to keep stamping no matter how busy you are.

I just LOVE making coordinating card sets.  They make great inexpensive, but oh so meaningful gifts.  And who wouldn’t love to have an adorable handmade set like this on hand?  Simple  layering and an embossed and embellished card holder make this little gift look like it took so much longer to make than it really did,  a bonus when life is so busy.  I’m in love with the Fabulous You stamp set.  The high heel is so girly and gorgeous.  It has such great detail that you can color or just leave the stamp as is and it looks beautiful.  This time I decided to color it with the fine tip of my Stampin’ Write  Markers.

As a gift to my new readers (and hopefully new blog friends :-)), here is a FREE printable template so you can make the card holder with your favorite Stampin’ Up! goodies!  A2 card set holder template
