Quick & Cute Handmade ‘Just because’ cards!

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Please join me in welcoming special guest Cheiron Brandon to the blog today! I love her colorful pretty style and these pretty cards are of no exception! Read on to learn more and enjoy!

Hi there crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon here with a fun little note card project that is perfect for paper scraps or any of your “experiment” papers with Distress Mediums. I have a bunch of paper scraps in my stash and always look for ways to use them up. For these notes, you will want a colorful pattern scrap, some small die cuts and a simple sentiment set.

I used the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Papercut Cafe Colorize dies (available to preorder now) and the Stampers Anonymous Crazy Talk stamps but almost any small die/simple stamp combo will work. I used a scrap of Distress Kraft Heavystock from my stash that I had colored Distress Watercolor Pencils on and cut it out with the Papercraft Cafe dies look like little painted mugs. The solid pieces for the background of the mugs and the saucers were cut from papers I had made earlier this year using DIstress Mica Stains.

To make these cards is super simple, and a great way to use up your stash. First I took all my colorize dies out and arranged them in order, they are numbered on the back, so creating the layers is super easy. I used cup “4” so I pulled all the pieces that said cup 4 and cut them out. I also cut the pieces for the saucer and the steam. When all of my pieces were cut out, I inked the edges of each piece with Black Soot Distress Ink, then adhered them together and added foam dots to the back.

I stamped simple sentiments onto a 3 ½ x 4 x ½ notecard using Versafine Clair ink, then added the mugs that had foam tape on the backs right to the card. These would be great to have on hand in your stash or even more fun to create a few sets of them to give as gifts! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and can’t wait to see what you turn your scraps into.
