Pink Persimmon Bitty Cards!

Hello and what a fabulous Saturday evening it is! Hope all is well with you and your weekend thus far. We have some wonderful company in town this weekend. It's been so fun. Especially with the two babies cooing and laughing all around. (ok, kai doesn't quite laugh yet, but does giggle when he sleeps).

I wanted to share with you some cards I made up this week. I LOVE little cards. They can be so versatile and handy to add to flowers, small gifts and bags. Just perfect for a few nice words to a loved one. Well, I pulled out some Pink Persimmon stamps and wanted to make them focal points on my bitty cards. 

Here's the set of all four cards together:

I cut my white card base to 3x3. Then cut the center square to 1.5 square. I stamped my main image in the square, and colored it. Using a little tape I temporarily glued down the center square  so I could draw in the outlined frame and stamp the sentiment at the bottom and then I added some pop dots to finally adhere them to the card base. And here they are in no particular order...

I used the balloon set from Vintage Cupcake and colored it with Copics. I then punched two small holes on either side of the balloon string and thread it with Divine Twine. The sentiment is from Ric Rac Circle.

Cute as a Button:
I used two sentiments for this one. The baby is from Ric Rac Circle and the other sentiment plus button image is from Cute As A Button set. A vintage button and thread is added to the middle.

I 'love' this image! It's also from Vintage Cupcake and very vintage! I added just a little color to the suit, flowers and brides hair. Very simple with the frame and "Love" sentiment from Ric Rac Circle.

I love this little snail from the Flower Garden set. There are a lot of small simple images in this set that could be used for a whole slew of cards! The fun is endless, really! I colored him up and popped him on. I loved making these cards because they really are so simple but FUN FUN to make!  I think having a lot of these on hand will be so useful. 

So! What are you doing this weekend?? We are eating, playing and spending some wonderful time together as a family. It's been really peaceful and I really don't want the work week to start. One more day of bliss! The kids did easter eggs and baskets today since tomorrow we wanted to focus on more spiritual things. They have been eating candy ALL day. In fact I don't think they ate any real food so I am sure they will not sleep well. Or maybe if I am lucky the sugar crash will last until the morning ; )

Anyway. Hope all is well with you. Happy Easter and Happy Spring!!
