another selection of cards from the lovely melissa goodsell ... she has some great new ideas for fast but lovely handmade cards.
Mel has used her all time favourite journaling stamp (Quotes background) combined with some Basic Lowercase letters to put together a card with a personalised message for a friend. To add a finishing touch the Tim Holtz texture hammer was used on the Heidi Swapp chipboard heart to achieve a dimpled appearance and then lightly sanded to give a nice mix of white and red.
An easy way to use up those left over embellishments is to cut out a small series of 3cm squares, ink the edges and combine a mix of accents with some hand stamped messages. Mel has the 'small greetings' boxed set again to create this fun and funky birthday card.
The Sassafras Lass die cut trims are perfect for stamping that special message on and adhering as a main feature of your card. Mel has used pop dots behind the die cut trim to add dimension to the card and added a selection of small French knots around the outer edge. The stamp used here is 'Fabulous Birthday'.
The 'Playful Animals' set contains a sweet bear, elephant, monkey and lion stamp, fantastic for scrap booking projects or birthday cards. For this get well card Mel has stamped the monkey directly onto a plain piece of paper, hand cut out the design and swung the monkey from a Basic Grey diet cut tree (Mellow die shapes). The get well stamp is from the 'small greetings' boxed set.
