Three Sweet Pea Cards

I'm sorry for my spotty posting over the course of the last week. I don't really have a good excuse...just busy with the kids and other stamping activities. This is stamp club week, so I'll be able to share those projects after tomorrow. And I'm working on some cards with stuff from the new Summer Mini, but I think I'm going to save those for May, after the mini catalog starts...I'll have more to share very soon, so keep checking back. I promise to pick up the pace again!

To make up for missing the last couple days, I have THREE cards to share tonight! I made them all this afternoon, using pieces of the Sweet Pea Designer Paper Stack. Some of the designs have large printed images that make them perfect for quick cards without the need for a lot of other stamping. Just what I needed today!

This 4" x 4" card features an image from the coordinating Trendy Trees stamp set. You can get the stamp set 20% off this month! (Click here for details.) All I did on this card was to round the corners and add a greeting.

I used the Elegant Trio Stencils (#118262, $9.95) to add the coordinating flower in the corner of this 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" card.

This 3-1/2" x 6" card has a cut out greeting. There's a circle notch punched from the card front and the greeting is adhered to the inside of the card. I used a little bit of Sweet Pea Stitched Felt in the center of the stamped flower (in the middle of the greeting).

If you haven't already purchased it, the Sweet Pea Designer Paper Stack (#117161) is available in the Occasions Mini Catalog until the end of the month. It's a great value at $24.95 for 48 sheets!

I loved this card so much I had to make my own take on it. Actually, I've cased several of your cards lately after finding one on Pinterest. You can find them on my blog with links back your blog. Thanks for the inspiration!
