Paperartsy Cards.. Quick and Easy.

Hello everyone, thank you for dropping by today.
I've been making lots of cards recently topping up my handmade card stash as it had began to dwindle lately. These are a selection using Distress Oxide mop up backgrounds and PaperArtsy Stamps.

Here are my very quick and easy *how to do's*...
in small words and lots of pictures.

Using Distress Oxide created backgrounds PaperArtsy Stamps 
Designed by Kay Carley have been used to create the cards design.

Coloured using wink of stella brush pens, some have been edged with stitching.

Others have been given a dot or two of stickles glitter glue 
and a sentiment also from the stamp set.

This sentiment is from another PaperArtsy set. I made a mistake stamping this 
and had to go over it with a fine liner but I don't think it's too noticeable.

I find this one rather innocent looking, maybe ideal for a child
 or Teenager. What do you think ?

This one is my favourite of the four, not sure why but I chose not to put a sentiment on it as it may not stay in the card pile for very long as I think it would look great framed.

I have used this super stamp set so much recently as it gives quick results.
I hope you enjoyed my quick made cards too??

Take care, Stay Safe & have a wonderful weekend everyone.

  1. fabulous cards, I needt o take a leaf out of your book and get making some quick cards like this too!

    1. Thank you Helen, I do think we sometimes over think our makes when we really should just stop and look at what products we are using. These Talented Designers have done all the hard work for us.. to create from their designs is the easiest part xx

  2. These look great Tracey, great way to use the mop ups...xx
    Have a lovely weekend.♥

    1. Glad you approve Annie, have a great weekend.. x

  7. Dear Tracey, they are all so beautiful and lovely, the soft color tones, speak to me, and the stamps are wonderful, too.
    My favorite is number two shown, I simply adore the colors you mixed up, there, and also the Queen Anne's Lace, stamp- so elegant and beautiful. Hugs to you dear, and a wonderful weekend !! xxx

    1. Thank you Dear Dorthe, the Queen Anne;s Lace Flower is perfect for cards of all occasions and such a simple design that gives impressive results with little effort. Sadly each and everyone of those backgrounds would be impossible to replicate as they are all unique in design but they were fun to create and I have many more similar awaiting a little stamp or two.. Enjoy the rest of your weekend xx
