Odd size cards



First, let me say that I am tickled pink to be part of the new Stamp Sistahs Design Team! It's going to be lots of fun and I can't wait to share it with you!

Now, on to the cards...

These cards are 3 x 5.5 and are easily made without much waste by cutting your standard 4.25 x 5.5 card down to 3 x 5.5. You are left with a 1.25 x 5.5 piece that could be used for a scrapling card or added to your scrap pile and used with punches.


This first card is a case of myself. I made a card like this before using a cupcake as the image and I used fresher colors. This sentiment single stamp, Sending Love, from Creative Clear Stamps is perfect for me to use when I need a sympathy card. I went with a subdued color scheme of SU's Basic Gray and some October Afternoon paper. I added a pop of color using PTI's Berry Sorbet. The flourish comes from a set by Inkadinkadoo.


The next card is what I call Rustic Life. I have a small obsession with twine and Kraft cardstock. I stamped the polka dots with SU's Basic Gray. The gray ink did not like the polka dot stamp and it beaded up. I went with it because I wanted a rustic look. I normally have no problem with SU ink and my PTI stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the way that this size of card looks. Just a little different than the regular size. I may have to be bold and give this a try!
