VC_Rocks Blog Hop- Any size card

Thanks for dropping by. I'm the 4th stop in the blog hop for VC Rocks 2012. The theme is Any size card.
If my blog is your first stop, you're going to want to go see Mary Jo Price-Williams' blog to see the ones before me. You can also go to VC_ Rocks blog to get the whole list of participating blogs.
As my regulars know, I love 3 x 3 cards. They're my favorite thing to tuck into a pocket, a lunch, into the envelope with the hostess pack, into a customer order, to use as a gift tag, etc. They are super simple to make. All you need is a stamp, ink, and some cardstock. Mostly I use 1 stamp set and a sentiment. I can write a short note on the inside or write it on a post-it so that it can be shared with another person or 2. I chose a new stamp set, Serene Silhouettes (page 75 of the new 2012-2013 catalog), to use on these cards.

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Tea Shoppe
Ink: Gumball Green, Primrose Petals (marker), Basic Black
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Whisper White
Embellishment: Brights brads

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes
Ink: Gumball Green, Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White, Bashful Blue
Technique: Sponging

Here's the blog candy I'm giving away for my birthday (it's June 16th). Be sure to leave a comment and a way to contact you. As of today, I still can't read minds so if you want to win you'll have to leave your info.

Ooops, forgot to say that I will draw the winner on Wednesday, June 20th

Thanks for stopping by!

Next stop on the tour Jackie Watson's blog

Happy Birthday and thanks for sharing some very cute cards. I'm not much of a nature stamp person so while I can't see myself buying the set, I got some great ideas for my customers!!

You can find me on VC_Rocks!

Super Creative Happy Birthday Wishes to you!!!! Love the 3 x 3 cards you made and it's inspired me to make some of my own now! You can find me at - just follow the monkeys!!

Debbie said...

I love 3x3 also. My stamp group loves it when I do a "free style" camp and let them create oodles of 3x3 with my "stuff". I just got this stamp set on Thursday and haven't inked it up yet. Thanks for sharing!

Those are really pretty!! Brenda had me buying gum ball green card stock after seeing her cards. It's a super color! I also really like the idea of the 3x3 for quick cards. I'm somewhere between CAS and embellishment overload (closer to CAS) but that size really does prevent feeling the need to add just one more thing. So, thanks for the inspiration!

Opps forgot to say happy birthday (one day late).

Brenda Hugar said...

Great cards June. Love the vibrant colors.

Mary said...

Loved your cards. I forget about 3x3 cards. They are great because they use less paper and can be tucked into all kinds of things.

Stace said...

Super cute. Happy Birthday!

Stamper Shirley said...

June, I too love to make and give 3x3 cards - so quick and easy. I often make a batch and give them as a little extra gift. Love your cards - I need that stamp set now!! Hugs, Sassy Shirley
