TOY Cards

I’ve been doing some card-making recently and the theme seems to be Thinking of You and birds. I experimented with creating different looks using pretty much only one set of stamps.

The text on the card above is a quote from Emily Dickinson, and it reads, “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.” “Thinking of You” is stamped on the inside of this card instead of the outside.

I love coloring in stamped images with colored pencils, the look is very appealing to me and it’s a great way to add color without having to mess with lots of different ink pads or inking pens, which gets messy.

From autumn… to spring… This set also has a stamp of an evergreen branch with pine cones, but being that it was 98* F outside, the thought of making a winter themed card just seemed inconceivable today. Maybe next time…
