On the Sunny Side Cards

On Friday we got together with our friends for our first summer playdate. While the kids played together, Becky and I had our own crafty playdate. I was able to create three cards, all using My Mind's Eye paper from the On the Sunny Side collection. I found it at Archiver's. The colors make me smile. I also used the April and May Stamps of the Month from Close To My Heart.
This card uses the April Stamp of the month and the Hello stamp from Hello Blooms. Holiday Red and Sunflower worked well with the collection. 

The stars are from the May Stamp of the Month and have been inked in Holiday Red, Sunflower and Twilight. The red paper is American Crafts brand. The blue is Twilight cardstock with the stars stamped in Twilight as well. On the white circle, I inked the stamp in Sunflower, stamped off on a scrap paper then stamped on the white cardstock. I like that it breaks up the starkness of the white a little.

I used my corner rounder again on 1 1/2 inch squares of paper. The butterflies are from Michaels.

The cards were inspired by cards found on Pinterest. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

What happy cards! The colors are bright and perfect together. I'm so glad you had some time to be craft with a friend - and that your girls enjoyed their time, too. Isn't it great when it works out that way?! Hugs!!
