More Mini Cards

Yesterday I put up a few mini cards I made during a class at Archiver's over the weekend. 
Here are a few more I did:
The card above was a simple double stamping know where you stamp on your base...then stamp on another piece of paper...fussy cut it out and adhere it to your original shape with a pop dot.  I love this look...and I love when people stamp the image multiple times.  I, however, am too lazy for that!  We did add some Stickles to the little bee for a little something extra.  CUTE!

The next card was a simple card but a new little technique.  We had a square of printed paper (double sided) and made a few snips in the paper and folded the flaps to create a pin wheel.  Very easy, very fast and VERY CUTE!

The third card I'll show today is this one:
We basically stamped the tree image and then used various paint dabbers (Jenni Bowlin) to give different colors to the trees.  We actually inked up a flat circle stamp and then just stamped over the trees.   I love the look of that sentiment but I'm not sure of the manufacturer...sorry!  We did use Hero Arts, Inky Antics, Memory Box, Savvy, Technique Tuesday, Tim Holtz, and Unity stamps (did I say I love Archiver's classes where we get to use all kinds of different product???!).

These mini cards are just great...and they are so fast and easy.  A few scraps of paper..a stamp...a border punch or two...and you can have a really cute card! 

Hope your week starts out beautifully!

Happy Crafting!


  1. This HoneyBee especially likes the Bee card. Can you provide details on how to make the pinwheel? I have directions that I think may be similar but would like to know yours. The circle stamping to give the trees colors is crestive.

  2. How cute are these! I love the idea of a mini-card and these are just adorable! What a great way to use all those little scrap pieces that I can't bear to throw away (even though I have enough to wallpaper the moon!) :)Amy

  3. Great little cards Susan, I especially like the pinwheel one Thanks for your concern for me over the weekend, I am fine and no damage to my property, we got lucky.
