Creative Inspirations Note Card Set


Hello!  It's my turn to feature a project over at Creative Inspirations Paints challenge blog.  I made myself a set of note cards that happen to be the same size as a standard A2 greeting card, but this is one layer only.  It's something simple to slip into a package when you want to jot a quick note and be mail-friendly.


I used the Swirly Parchment Frame stamp from Sweet Stamps (link in section below) in cocoa to create the border.  In kraft ink, I stamped a flower from Natural Beauty (SU) and then painted the images with the pretty CIP paints.

Here's a better look at that shimmer:


In person, these paints are just full of gorgeousness.  It's hard to experience it with a flat photo.


August marks the 3rd anniversary of Creative Inspirations Paints, and Molly, owner of CIP, will be having a SALE!  As soon as I have more details, I will share them with you.  :D

Thanks for coming by today!



Dimensions: 4.25" x 5.5"
Stamps: Swirly Parchment Frame - Sweet Stamps; Natural Beauty - SU
Paper: Vintage Cream - PTI
Ink:  Close to Cocoa, Crumb Cake - SU
Other: Green Olive, Tickled Pink, Blush and Mellow Yellow Shimmer Paints - Creative Inspirations Paints
